5.0 out of 5 stars Comfy and durable, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dr. Marten's 1460 Original 8 Eyelet, Unisex-Adult Lace-Up Boots (Apparel)
Bought these boots despite some negative reviews, and I wasn't disappointed, I already have a pair of venga DM's which are soft leather and really comfy but no good for dog walking as the leather is too soft, they are used more as a fashion accessory, so I decided to invest in another pair specifically for walking.
Boots arrived quickly and were much more robust than the ones I already have, yes they have a plasticky feel and look to them but they Are new!!!! Very hard wearing leather which seems to be coated for extra durability, on wearing them around the house I found they are like the original DM's, stiff, leather is squeaky, and will take a little breaking in with a couple of pairs of socks to save my poor feet from blisters, but I'm absolutely certain that when they have been broken they will be like a pair of slippers and will last much longer than the walking boots I already have.

I have mild arthritis in my toes so find wearing closed shoes very uncomfortable, DM's have a wide front and are perfect for me, I have no or very little discomfort when wearing them so my advice is try a pair of DM's if you have feet problems.

Get a pair of funky coloured laces to dress them up and they look great...no one is too old for DM's I am in my mid fifties and get great comments when wearing my soft venga boots with roses embroidered into the leather with a dress and tights, these new ankle boots look just a great with leggings, dress or my walking clothes a versatile boot. Hope my review helps those who are unsure of DM's...;) very very happy with my purchase....
