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.

For £60 this is a poor product. Like everything these days they are probably made in China but that is no excuse for lack of product control especially of you are charging the same price.
Would like to have contacted to seller direct to do this but Amazon doesn't allow this for some reason. It does for other orders on my list but not this one. What I want is an apology and a refund.
Dr Marten...hang your head in shame and you should be struck off!
I feel slightly ripped off. Immediately returned and went directly to the DM website. More expensive, but at least the quality is guaranteed and you get what you ordered.
Take my advice and do not order
