REAL Doc MARTENS

Recommended Posts

WTF. even england scrapped pride in shoemaking and sent it over to asia for a sub-standard product. "original" (chinese made) doc martens. i had a true pair of the original english made martens, the weight diffrence and leather quality between the two is substantionally noticeable, as is the quality of the sole (soul). what the fuck, ive even seen pictures online of alleged "original" enlishmade doc martens and its not them. apparently china and or other countries are bootlegging them and even stamping, "made in england" on the sole and adding the petrol, oil, alklyd etc... resistant stamp.

it's ridicoulous. anyone know where to find a REAL pair in the tri-state area or possibly online?

it's sad to hear that. maybe check out those punk rock shops on st. marks place, they might sell vintage Docs. I should have saved all of mine back in the late 80's early 90's. Who still wears docs any ways?

them fucking bags were probably always made in china. the thing is we can say ,"yeah fuck that it's cheaper long as i can rock a designer label and buy it 4$ on canal st" "yeah i can buy (try to) a product in america (or europe/uk for that matter) but it costs more" true. but that's the mentality and way corporate business helped ruin our economy and country and the majority of america helped it along. the ol' , "fuck that, it's made in chin, so what, it's cheaper, and i saved more money and still rock brand name" all the while american and global corporations outsource and pay shit wages in (example) mexico. so a company closes shop and crosses the border and pays the citizens shit-ass wages, what the fuck do you think is gonna happen? the citizens of that country are gonna jump border and come over here illegally. all these fucking politicians just ignore the broader picture and put up more fences and add more guards, while totally looking the other way at the source of the problem, cause corporate lobbyists stuffed they're pockets. ignorance is fucking blisss.

just went into a brick and mortar doc martens shop and they had a "made in England" section. the rest of the shoes were made in china and vietnam.

i bought a pair of the "made in england" 14 eyehole vintage ones or whatever earlier this year, the leather is definitely heavier duty than the smaller 8 hole chinese ones i got last year (i think my sister bought 'em for me from some store at the mall.)

 

i payed like $220 for the english ones which to me isn't much for something that will last forever, since im pretty uptight about maintaining leather. but i like the english leather better, seems like it would shine up way easier than the weird, softer and spongy feeling chinese leather that's way thinner.

 

i'm always down to pay more for a product that's made in a somewhat reputable country as far as labor/manufacturing goes, rather than stuff made in china or haiti or jordan or some shithole you've never even heard of.
