Dr. Martens is the stuff of legends. 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 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 the first of April 1960, the first cherry red eight-eyelet work boot was produced and named 1460. 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.

Been wearing this exact style for the last 15 years or more. I work in the restaurant field so I m rough on the shoes. The first 10 years or so this shoe s been great. They usually last about 3 years per pair. I usually go through 2 pairs of shoe strings before the shoes gives out. However, the last several years I notice these shoes only last about a year and half which cuts the life in half. When I looked into why this happen, I realized they no longer made in England. Now they either made in China or Vietnam. Make matter worst. The shoe itself falls apart before the sole gives out. The price have either stays the same or have gone up. Perhaps this will be my last pair. I m told the Red Wing is a better made shoe. Can t hurt trying something new since the Dr.Martens people doesn t seems to care about the quality of their products anymore.
