When Doc Martens first appeared in the UK, in 1960, they were working boots that would cost you under $3 a pair. These days, a pair of Made in England boots could set you back $225. So, what has changed? And why are these shoes now so expensive?

Why Doc Martens Are So Expensive | So Expensive

  • I had my first docs boots for 8 years, the new ones now holding 10 years. So I wouldn't say they aren't durable.

  • People want that instant street CRED that doc martens provides that rebel with the attitude but the reality is doc Martens are made in China with subpar materials and are extremely uncomfortable and fall apart Unlike the originals from decades ago

  • Because people are stupid? Weird people buy overpriced clothes and shoes that always look horrible and goofy. Mentally ill people that have too much money don't value life and their relationships with people and they in turn attempt to look and act as unique as possible simply to attract attention whether good or bad they simply want that attention. Look at me syndrome

    • It's just preference I guess. They don't show them in the video but the platform Docs look hot, like the 8053 Quad Derbys. I would pay for those because there's not much that looks similar to those for a cheaper price

  • You can still buy "Docs" by the original maker NPS. They produce Solovair which have a different sole and stitch color, but are the same boots. NPS made Docs from 1960 till about 1995. They are priced about the same as MIE Docs

  • I wore docs from 1978 until about 1983. The leather always split away from the sole at the big toe joint. Most of us moved to Swiss army surplus boots which lasted much better at £20 a pair. As a work boot it depends what you call work...No steel toecap in the std boot kind of says it all...
