3 eye shoe
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.

the shop is gonna refund my moeny and they are not to blame but these shoes are horrible and NOT the same as they were two years ago altho they carry the same brand number 1461.
Maybe I bought a duff pair, and the rest are more reliable, but maybe I didn't, so these shoes fragility is something to consider when it comes to buying another pair.
I'm giving up now, I won't order a third pair. But it seems clear that the size varies enormously from style to style, although both pairs I tried on in the shop were 3 hole flat lace ups so as similar to these as I could find.
After just two weeks of light usage, the soul has detached from the shoe at the arch. Of course it's just long enough that he returns policy isn't available any more :-(
This experience has been dreadful and I wouldn't recommend you buy them.
The size was too small also. I could not get my foot in the shoe, despite being the same UK size as all my other Docs.
