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!

Make them all in England your getting a very bad name for quality people will start buying copies and then you will not have a business in ten years from now you may Laugh but I'm usually right I predicted Woolworths would go bust 15 years before it did people said I was mad but were is that company now mmmm.andy England
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'.
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.
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..
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 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
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
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?
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.
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 bought my first pair of Dr. Martens about a month ago, black once with roses embroidered, so beautiful!😍🌹 I've heard alot about Dr. Martens being very durable, I take good care of my new babies and I hope they will stay with me for many years🖤❤
I bought a pair of dr. Martens the soul ripped off in week one I emailed them pictures and pictures of my receipt all they said is they could give me a discount on another purchase that was BS im never buying a pair again
High quality raw materials n high quality control. Not just the expensive price for the prestige n not just what the trending is right now. That's why this product has many followers 😊 n it deserve get many loyal cust around the world 👍👍
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.
