Dr Martens men's 3 - eyelet ankle boot made from soft leather. Features cream stitching on the seams, Airwair loop, Dr Martens logo embossed into outer side and yellow z-welt stitch.
It all began near Munich, Germany in 1945 when Dr. Klaus Maertens injured his foot in a skiing accident in the Bavarian Alps. To make walking easier during the healing process, he designed a shoe with an air-cushioned sole. Using old rubber tires, he constructed soles that had air trapped within closed compartments. He showed his prototype to his engineer/inventor friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, and together they decided to develop and produce the shoes. Not only did the shoe solve the doctor's immediate problem, but it also started to sell well in Germany. By 1959 the two founders decided that they needed a company to produce and distribute the shoes, then called Dr. Maertens, in other parts of the world. At first, many manufacturers rejected the concept of an air cushioned sole as a short-lived gimmick. However, the R. Griggs Group, located in the village of Wollaston in England, decided to go along with the idea by creating the first work boot with the revolutionary sole. On 1 April. 1960, the first cherry-red eight-eyelet work boot was produced and named 1460 (1/4/60). To sell the brand name better in England, the name was anglicized to Dr. Martens. The range was branded AirWair and the rest is history.
Are these real Dr Martens? They are not traditional Dr Marten soles, and the style 'Jake' does not exist on the Dr Martens website.Published 11 months ago by David

They are well made boots but they feel narrower than my last pair (not as comfortable) I am hoping they just need to soften up with wear, my old ones are 8yrs old now and still... Read morePublished 19 months ago by norman G
Despite claims that these are wide-fitting, I found the opposite. Narrow, tight and uncomfortable as hell. Nothing like DM Reeds. Returned. Amazon fantastic as always.Published 19 months ago by Hello

Very cool looking and classic desert boots style. It is too early to know if peanuts leather color will stay easily clear but it looks good.
