How Dr. Martens' Are Made

46584 ratings | 2108731 views
We visited Dr. Martens' only UK factory on Cobbs Lane in Wollaston, Northamptonshire. This is where Dr. Martens makes its iconic "Made in England" collection. The factory employs 50 workers that make about 100,000 pairs of boots per year, which is only one percent of what the brand makes as a whole!

They are overpriced and, of course, overrated. They are just like any other boots which cost half the price. BUT, people buy it as a statement. Nobody buys them for their 'durable' capabilities, let's be serious here. Timberland is durable also, Helly Hansen and even Caterpillar. But when you wear a Dr.Martens people will look at them and think 'wow, this guy has a lot of money paying 300+ on a boot that looks like all the other boots'.

English shoes always have ugly lasts. This is not an exception.

So... we are just not gonna mention how the majority of styles are made in China? Only a very few style (s), are actually made in England.

Found the person who didn't actually watch the video. They explicitly state that around 1% of their products are made in England. Back to your fail-boat, Nigil!

My favourite boots, I got a pair, the 1460 hardlife, and they are super durable! Wearing them almost daily for 5+ years now. The black has only faded a little and the front of the shoe is a little damaged from wearing, but that's it.

Now I know why mine broke so quickly... The sole wasn't properly fused and sliced clean off horizontally. What a shame, a beautiful boot but only lasted me two months, I wasn't too happy about it.

I love my steel toe Dr. Martens work boots. I'm a heavy equipment operator and my feet are on steel pedal controls all day. The soles of these boots are second to none.
They're so cool that, if they were cheaper, I'd buy another pair more at least.

always wonder why they moved the bulk of their production overseas...they may talk about tradition but money is king......I bought a pair for £20 and another for £40 and £60...see how long they last...40 years ago you bought a pair and they were guaranteed forever...think that guarantee is no longer on offer..which means the quality is not what it used to be..

Just a shame they are a crazy price now days, when I got my first pair they were £10.95 my last pair were £45 and now they are over £140 in some shops 😱. Still great boots though.

I’ve had my pair of DMs for Four years and they are perfect - moulded to my feet for a perfect fit and look brand new. My dad has had his for over twenty years and looks amazing still.
LUD WIG (13 days ago)
Bought a pair made in asia .. after 5 years they are still in good shape, never had any troubles with them. Just sayin... The England made are not much different. i recon the leather might be slightly better, everything else looks the same
I have a pair that was inspected by rose, shout out to rose
Robin Marriott (14 days ago)
I live in the village these are made, I walked past the Cobb’s Lane factory every day on the way to school and EVERY kid wore Dr Martens. As a result, nobody who lives here wears them as we have all been scarred for life from years of our parents buying them because they were cheap from the factory shop in the village.

Here in southeast Asian countries such Indonesia, Malaysia, etc Dr Martens are made in China even you buy it at the authentic stores. There are only few of them made in UK, and most of them are hand carried
Eren McCune (15 days ago)
I had a pair of Dr Martin's unfortunately I grew out of then but recently I've bought myself a new pair as there was a sale and I couldn't resist now these boots should last me forever as long as my feet don't grow too much

can we get a video of the factories in china making the boots?
bobi6262 (18 days ago)
Chinese production or any other country, it's really shit. Dr. Martens made in England (I have 3 pairs) it's good quality. I have 2 pairs of Solovair and it's very good quality too. The problem with shoes made in England is that there are few models available. The Dr.Martens brand has lost a lot of credibility by relocating its production. A lot of people buy Chinese thinking they're buying English, it's not good. why make shit in china? why can't the chinese make good shoes?

Best boots ever.😊 I have a pair of 1460 black.😊 You Can use them to all circumstances, and mix them to different clothes.❤️ Its a dream to walk in for my feet.❤️ I love them.❤️
GeneSun (21 days ago)
The boots I've worn for 40 years are Docs. They always fit perfect. After standing on concrete floors for 50 hours a week, my feet never hurt. I have fitted Italian dress shoes that aren't nearly as comfortable.
Mister Zeer (21 days ago)
Esistono Dr. Martens ancora prodotte in Inghilterra? Quelle di adesso sono prodotte in Cina o Tailandia, e non sono più la stessa cosa. Che gran peccato!
mpscats360 (21 days ago)
woah! this totally explains why docs are a little on the higher end and helps me understand the justification for that price. it makes me appreciate it so much more as well. Love it!! Love docs

You have to buy Spanish shoes made in Comunidad Valenciana or Toledo. Very good quality.
Kristian Brandt (27 days ago)
The better quality and attention to detail, not to mention product integrity, is a good thing. Problem is the presentation and steep price which comes with the Made in England stamp is somewhat in conflict with the shoes rebellious image.

I guess the rest 99% are made by slave child labour in asia as any other modern comercial brand, am I right?
Paul Caldwell (1 month ago)
He says because it's melted, the sole can't come unstuck. I've had two pair that came apart. The rubber sole just came off. Dr. Marten was a German. These boots are made in England, but they were created by a German in Germany. Dr. Marten was a German soldier in WWII.
