      Same goes for any other brand. I'm looking at other boots too, just not convinced paying $200 odd for "made in China under strict guidelines and quality measures" product.
      Seems it's either $350+ or Kmart for a pair, anything in between is a gamble.

      •  

        Check out Solovairs. Still made in the UK to the original docs quality.
        Cost about the same as docs heritage line and well worth the price.

        I’ve been very happy with red back Australian Mande slip on boots. First pair lasted 7 years of almost daily wear, albeit I work behind a computer.
        They are still going for yard work or camping, but I have a new pair for work.

    Overrated shoes whose value is solely in the name that they used to be.

    EDIT: Also their 'smooth leather' is generally considered the worst of the worst.

      My Docs are the longest lasting shoes I've owned of any kind.

      There are probably better quality boots out there, but these will still last you years so $80 is a bargain.

      •  

        Not made the same these days. A lot of reports of them falling apart in a year or two and people dealing with crappy customer service.

        Solovair is the go to now for quality boots of this style AFAIK

        •  

          I have a pair from a bit over a year ago and a pair from several years ago. They look fine to me.

          Maybe they had some bad batches 🤷‍♂️

                @Sxio: If you wear them once a week into the city and barely get off the beaten track, you are not wearing the boot the way it was designed and would probably not notice if they were goodyear welt (these are not, they glue the sole)

                • +1 vote

                  @Broden: Fair enough. I've owned Docs though and they're definitely not designed for hiking or any kind of off beaten track work.

                  They're just not that kind of boot.

                  •  

                    @Sxio: Yep they are not for hiking. I never said that.

      You get what you pay for. The 'Vintage' 1460s and 101s are still the same quality as they've always been and are made in the UK, but you're never getting them for $80.

    I had a few pairs of the regular 8-up black leather ones, they always split near the big toe where the leather creases. Then in 1999 I bought some steel cap soft leather ones, they're still being worn today.

    the good ol's "Cherry Docs", every cool kid back in high school used to have pair! (I wasn't one of them :()

    edit: was about order a pair but notice these doesn't have yellow stitches! WTH????

  • +1 vote

    Thanks OP. Now I can be as urbanely stylish as my son.
    For those commenting on the leather splitting at the creases, the key is to use leather care products. I have a pair of Docs from 1989 where the leather is beautifully supple with no evidence of cracking, but I use a high quality polish regularly. Unfortunately this doesn't stop the soles from wearing through.

    •  

      Similarly for me, but I'll never be as stylish as my daughter. To be fair, I've been wearing DM's since the 80's. It's interesting seeing every generation discover trends like this and try to make it their own. Some things become timeless.

    •  

      What polish do you use, and how often?

      •  

        Spit. Only when dirty.

      • +1 vote

        For black I'd use Kiwi Parade Gloss and for the Cherries you could use either Dubbin or the Neutral with carnauba wax. Just look at the leather, if its getting dry, dull, or scuffed then its time to give it some love.

        I'm a little different as I use liquid lanolin on most of my boots to condition them. Used to get it in the Army for lubricating weapons when we discovered that it works even better on leather.

          spuddie1: Any ideas how to treat black leather which is turning greenish in some spots especially toe area ? I've had a pair of black softwair doc marts which was daily work wear, super comfy and would love to extend the life of them.

          • +1 vote

            @skeevs: I'd try the Parade Gloss first. It's an oilier polish and will sink into the leather. If it's an extreme discolouration then you can use a permanent leather dye such as Raven Oil and polish over that. https://waproo.com.au/products/raven-oil/

            •  

              @spuddie1: awesome, thanks - I will give it a go!

        •  

          So silly question, but I guess you should clean the shoes as much as possible before polishing them, so would you even wash them if particularly dirty? And then let them dry before polishing?

          • +1 vote

            @kiitos: You don't want to be sealing dirt in underneath the polish so some pre-cleaning might be required,depending on how manky they are.
            1. Use a brush to remove dirt/dust that isn't caked on.
            2. Soapy water for anything that #1 doesn't remove. Let the leather air dry if the water soaks in.
            3. If still not satisfied then you can strip the surface back to it's base with methylated spirits and start from scratch.

    I remember when these were $89 in 1990

    Hate to be a negative Nancy but the fact this has so many upvotes and the same 3 sizes are still available indicates that the likelihood of all these orders being filled is small. Hoping for the best but expecting the worst :(

    Could these be considered motorbike shoes?

    • +1 vote

      I don't think so, motorcycle boots generally have steel toes or at least a toe protector to help with gear changes, so these may look really cool on a bike but won't be very functional.

    • +2 votes

      Don’t bike boots have a metal shank and ankle support?

    • +1 vote

      Steel blue work well as a middle ground between motorbike boots and boots good enough for walking. Kevlar toe cap and more ankle padding than a Doc.

      Platypus holds the license for Doc's in Australia and runs the store. I've seen the same thing when I've bought from them before.

    What's sizing like with Dr Martens? Do they run on the wider side or are they narrow?

    Wish more shoe companies actually sold wide sizes… Having to buy a size up because a shoe is too narrow sucks.

    •  

      I agree. Thursday Boots offers wider sizes on some of their shoes and are pretty decent value for the price.

      A charcoal or navy suit work great with these. Can even match a tie to em.

    Mine arrived yesterday - on the balance of things, it's all good.
    The boots are made in Thailand, and the box label as well as the card that comes inside the box is completely in Chinese. Quality control was done back in April 2018. The 'quarters' on the boots don't appear to have been stitched evenly compared to each other, so the lace at the bottom of this shoe looks a bit wonky compared to the other one. But after they wear in I probably won't notice it so much. Apart from this they look like they are pretty rugged and finished well. They look very much like the photos, wysiwyg.
    I read somewhere that they don't do half sizes so you should order the size down. This worked for me, I generally prefer UK 11.5 and ordered the 11 and it fits well.
    These are definitely not motorcycle shoes.
    I'm very happy with them for the price, would never spend AUD$269.99 for these but they are a good deal for $79.99.

      Interesting - mine arrived today and says made in Vietnam with all cards/box in English. Fit to size - I wear a uk9. Definately need a bit of wearing in but worth it for the price.
