How Dr. Martens' Are Made

33622 ratings | 1373528 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!

Why are the soles see through now? Oh and why don’t you make the 3 eye cherrys in steal toes but the black ones are. That would complete my collection? Oi! Skins.

I have an 8 hole boots that's not made in UK. It's been over 10 years since I bought them. It feels like its going to last forever even though I never take care of it. Purists may only accept Made in England models, but I'm totally fine with Made in China.

I love my 1460s, but please tell me why all of my pairs with the exception of a handmedown pair of my mom’s from the 90s all say Made In China/Thailand? Bought directly from the online store as well :\

Haha the boot of the skinhead. Did you all not know that as soon as these first came out they were adopted by racist skinheads and the company has even promoted their connection to skinheads in the past. These younger generations are just shitheads, close enough to skinheads so they might as well wear these. You would think with the loads of information and technology that we have now days, young people would be more educated but they are not.

Did it make anyone else uncomfortable when he said DOCTOR Martens?
Patrick Perry (2 days ago)
In my perpetual search for a decent boot I'll have to look into these. Used to wear "red wings" until they became expensive but didn't wear well. I don't mind the expensive part as long as they are durable and comfortable. Red Wing gave up the comfort and durability part. But kept the expensive aspect. I'll have to find where to get these.

I have ones made in Vietnam so not as great quality (or as expensive) as the England ones but still lasted 6-7 years before the sole started giving a bit in the front. I still love them though so I got them touched up.

These are pretty well made boots, but they lead people to believe that the methods they are using are superior to others, which they are not. Using a leather welt is far more durable than using a rubber one. Also, only the 'for life' Docs are made in England, the rest are main in Asia with lesser quality control and lower quality materials.

It doesn't matter how strong your boots are, nothing can withstand the destructive power of the human foot, may my Dr.Martens rest in peace.

--- FACTS --- In 2003, the Dr. Martens company came close to bankruptcy. On 1 April that year, under pressure from declining sales, the company ceased making shoes in the United Kingdom, and moved all production to China and Thailand. Five factories and two shops were closed in the UK as a result of this decision, and more than 1,000 of the firm's employees lost their jobsIn 2018 Business Insider reported that 10 million pairs of Dr. Martens shoes are produced annually. Of these, only 1% are made in the UK

It took 10 years for my 1st Doc boots to wear out...then I used that pair for gardening....and I immediately bought 2 new pairs of Doc boots for formal wear. I always have to have Doc Martens in my shoe collection...kinda the 'little black dress', but boots & shoes. & I am a bit snobbish, the Docs need to be made in England...
Interesting video but IRRITATING MUSIC.

Don't mistake Chinese docs for English ones. The English ones cast $200 More than Chinese ones.
nguyen phamkhoi (16 days ago)
... they're not look expensive as it cost at all... only the leather is nice, otherwise the form of the boots look like a work boots to me, look cheap and the midsole with rubber also look cheap as well, can use to work outdoor, but not suit for office or luxury place.
lisa simpson (16 days ago)
hmm, if you keep your Docs in pristine condition, wipe clean & oil occasionally...you can definitely wear the boots with a formal dress & sexy tights. And the color of Oxblood is unique, a classy stand out in the office setting amongst the boring brown & black loafers..
Cheryl Hernandez (16 days ago)
The process of making these super durable, too cool for comfort shoes are just amazing. Soles were melted. Hah. Just wow. Now we know why it ain't cheap. 😊

I was at a orchid place and I had bumped into rocks and thought I had scuff marks on my docs but there was nothing. They’re very durable shoes
