How Dr. Martens' Are Made

42887 ratings | 1860173 views
We visited Dr. Martens' only UK factory on Cobbs Lane in Wollaston, Northamptonshire. This is where Dr. Martens makes its iconic "Made in England" collection. The factory employs 50 workers that make about 100,000 pairs of boots per year, which is only one percent of what the brand makes as a whole!

I guess the rest 99% are made by slave child labour in asia as any other modern comercial brand, am I right?

He says because it's melted, the sole can't come unstuck. I've had two pair that came apart. The rubber sole just came off. Dr. Marten was a German. These boots are made in England, but they were created by a German in Germany. Dr. Marten was a German soldier in WWII.

Are vegan doc martens good and durable? They cost about $180.

Man I wish they would make the old "vintage" designs again. The newer ones are ok, but I like the look/construction of the really old ones.

They sure aren’t made like they used to be made. My first pair in the 90’s lasted over 10 years. The pair I recently bought, the “leather” bubbled up. I never bothered registering them because I thought this pair would be just like the last. My mistake. Just like everything else these days, quantity over quality. So disappointing.

I bought my first pair of Dr.M in 1997 and i had them for 7 years. Used to wear them all year long, everywhere. Then i tried different brands of boots, but came back for Dr.M 2 years ago...they look worst like those which i had for 7 years. Made in England means shit now, same goes for Rega turntables (i know, not boots...still made in England).

shonuffisthemaster (13 days ago)
doc martians as a company want you to believe there is something special about a machine lasted, goodyear welt boot with a thermo moulded toe puff and heel counter. there is nothing special about this boot, its the way millions of mass produced boots are made. so they melt the pvc sole onto a pvc welt? nope sorry, lots of other manufacturers do that too. so they use a puritan triple needle machine? sorry thats also a common industry stsndard as well, and they only use it on the vamp to upper seam, not the backstay seams like many manufacturers do. the ONLY thing different about these boots vs others is that they patented that yellow thread, and they wont sell their soles to anyone so they cant be resoled. they also cheap out by not including a toe cap or heel cap like many other manufacturers do. also btw, the vast majority of their line is made in china, only the specific "made in england" line, which is overpriced, is made in england.

What happens with the leftover leather? Does it get recycled or just tossed in the bin?

nice boots but find it uncomfortable af
Stacy (7 days ago)
They can take some time to break in but you really have to make sure you get the proper size too, especially since they don't make half sizes. They do sell various insoles to accommodate (for the half sizing differences) and for overall comfort. I also use their Wonder Balsam which softens the leather. Once they're completely broken in, they're unbelievably comfortable.

I have always dreamt of owning a pair or two, black and the maroon. I love the brand...soon

I got a pair to wear to school and they've lasted 6 years and are still going strong! I've worn them every school day since I was 12 and they're my favourite pair of shoes. <3

Nicholas Fanzo (14 days ago)
God they're ugly
That is not entirely true about the welting. I had a pair that came apart, the stitching was not stitched into the leather it was just there for looks and the soul came off as though it was glued to the bottom of the leather welt. I try to take them back to Dr. Martin but they wouldn’t except them and I assume it’s because that particular style (I assume) was not made by Dr. Martin in house, it was contracted out and made by another company or something. If you ever buy Dr. Martin’s only buy the ones made in England and make sure you get a warranty.

I USE to be a loyal customer for years! But I only ever bought one boot. the 18-eyelet boot. Let’s set the record straight, it’s made in china but despite this it would last on avenge 3-4 years and i only had issue with one pair and had it replaced. So, my current pair were young at the time when I was shopping at a store downtown, “I haven’t seen 18-eyelet boots in a while” one of the attendant’s of the store said, which was weird because a Dr Mart store was just down the street but then she tells me that they stopped making them some time the year before and she’s been seeing them less often. I contacted them to confirm, was super pissed! so ya, I only ever loved that boot. I hear that new rocks are OK so I’m going to try them when my last pair of the beloved 18-eyelet boot are dead and worn for good. kind of deceptive language/promo here, as if we were going to gloss over the fact that 90% of all their boots are made in china like everything else.lolz what, do they want a sticker of something?

Michael Anderson (24 days ago)
Let me shine some light. Dr.martans never really existed till they started being made in China in 2003 and now Vietnam. Before 2003 when still UK made they were made by solovair but was paid by martans to put there name on them. That's from the start till 2003. So if wore docs before 2003 they were solovair.which can still get solovair today. I'm not trying sale you solovair.i wear gripfast boots since 03. Like to get solovair to one day but both gripfast and solovair are worth the money.they will last forever.unlike docs who are made small and fall apart with in the year. So research my friends don't waste money on crap docs. Get the real UK hand made boots. You'll thank me.
Vanessa Galbreath (25 days ago)
⚠️NEED OPINIONS PLEASE⚠️ I just bought a pair of new docs. I'm a 7.5 so I went with the 7's because the 8's felt way too big. However. The thread right at the end of the tongue/laces is where all my pain is focused. Will normal wear break this thread in or anyone have a way to do it? After the first wear my feet were so sore right on the top. This is literally the only part of the shoe that isn't comfortable.

They last 6 months to a year now. They used to last 20 years. They are poorly made unfortunately

I like how he brags about being the only company that doesn't use glue but that is completly untrue. XD And it's still a EVA sole which will be worn own anyway unlike PU.

Yet, most boots being sold throughout the world are made in Thailand. And their price is outrageous.
