    i genuinely don’t understand it myself. it’s hilarious when people think the name "dr. martens" they think the moron was a hecking Podiatrist who knew the way feet worked when in reality he was just some stupid who hecked his ankle up during a war and made a custom pair of boots just for him. the result was the most uncomfortable pair of boots i have ever put my foot inside, and it’s hilarious how just because it’s become some /fashion/ symbol that people squeeze their feet into these stupid things and bare the uncomfortable nature of them because "it’s in"

    heckin stupids the lot of them. they’re also sinfully hecking ugly.

    I’m pushing 30, I’m a minority, and I think the Skinhead aesthetic is incredibly /fashion/. Docs are my next purchase.

        tbh i don’t really know anything about the world of boot brands. all i know is solvair, redwings, and origin and that’s because joe rogan shills them

          Docs had been a stable of youth fashion and culture for longer than you’ve been alive.

          Anyway, I have some pre-2003 docs that have held up perfectly for over more than 20 years. Can’t vouch for the quality of the newer ones.

            Of all the boots I’ve own (not counting mall-tier thrash) docs are the most comfortable out of the box. Guess they could be hard at first for people accustomed to sneakers.

            I had a pair of docs in 2005, the soles split and the sides blew out in less than a year. I got some surplus altama army boots after that and was done with docs forever.

            2003 was the year they moved production overseas and a massive drop in quality, both in construction and materials, followed suit.

    They’ve found a niche as the counter culture boot and have been riding the wave ever since. They’re not even quality boots or made in britbongland anymore. Still people love them.

    I think the major issue is that a lot of dumbass kids think they "need" to get the plain black docs because everyone else has the plain black docs. They have some pretty nice bonny leather models, but everyone just passes them over because that’s not what docs are "supposed" to look like.
