Thought it was a risk....A GREAT ONE (a kids review please read),
This review is from: Dr Martens Adult's 11822006 original 8 eyelet 1460z (Apparel)
Ordered these with my parents or 'Santa' for Christmas 2011. I am 12 but please still read my review.
Great service. I'd been excited and nervous to order them. We did so, got an email taht they would be shipped the next day and should arrive within 5 working days. They arrived in 3 in orriginal Dr Marten packaging (to me joy). I oppened them up to make sure they were the correct pair. I ordered the dark purple Dr Martens 1460. They were beautiful; didn't want to wait for Christmas day!!! PLEASENOTE: IF THEY ARE NOT IN THEIR ORIGINAL DR MARTEN BOX THEY COULD BE DODGY. Service is 4/5
The product os beautiful;. I have had them for 3 months and there isn't a scratch on them. The sole hasn't worn down at all , unlike other shoes. There has been some complaints about comfort. I literally put them on my feet the minute I got them and I have felt no pain at all. I were bed socks with them purely for sze issues as I am not a proper size 3. I have had no trouble with colour rubbing off either. On the sole, mine say THE ORIGINAL so any complaints with the ones that say that may be purely unlucky people. They seem to be ab A beautiful sight for others as well. I wore them to school and received many compliment. They even made 'Doc Haters' look impressed too. Product is 5/5
The price was extremely reasonable from Amazon. On the Dr Martens UK website they were £80-85, whereas, on Amazon, they were £65!!! That is quite good to me. Price is 5/5
OVERALL Rating :
Likes: This product is completely likable. The only way you could dislike them is if they were dodgy. That is unlikely.
Looks: They are beautiful, eye catching and unusual. There is nothing bad about the way they look. 5/5
Comfort:Very comfortable. No blisters or rubbing was experienced.I was actually getting ready for it but there was no need. 5.5
Whole product: 5./5
THANK YOU FOR READING I REALLY HOPE THIS HELPS YOUR DECISION ON WHETHER OR NOT TO BUY DR MARTENS.

Yes, thank you Sharon for your great review! Much as I understand the points made by older customers concerning the drop in quality in DMs since the 70's, it's really good to read the thoughts ofr a teenager buying hers for the first time. Hope they continue to give you fun and cred! x

Sharon, I had my first pair when I was 14 for school. Now I'm 47 and wanted some hard wearing but comfortable boots for work (I spend a lot of time on my feet). Your review was the decider for me. It reminded me of the old adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" and these haven't needed to be fixed since my first pair.
Thanks for taking the time to post a review that is exeptionally good.
It definitely helped me to decide. :-)
