    i find it a shame that most product manufacturing is being or has been moved to china due to cheaper cost of labor.

    I agree - the fact that they dont make Docs in the UK anymore really really peeves me, but Im not sure I can name a specific, logical reason.... it just pisses me off.
    rawr!

    20 eyelets are not really knee high. Underground shoes, who makes smiliar boots, have models with 30 eyelets.

    yeah...
    Steel toe boots look like clown boots or boots for people with big toes :D
    But, I think Dr.Martens boots (8 till 10 eyelets) can look very classy.

    Doc Martens - how do they fit?

    I'm a U.S. 9, Miu Miu 39.5, Marni 40 (sandals) or 41 (pumps), mostly Italian 40 for other shoes. What size should I get for boots? Are there any other comparable cheap flat boots out there? :flower:

    Where are Womens Dr Marten boots sold in London?

    The Dr Martens website is completely annoying to navigate and incredibly slow.

    Thanks in advance!

    i love docs. they take forever to break into though...
    i'm glad they're making a comeback but i do think they only go well with certain styles.

    i'm lemming a pair of short ones for the winter......:heart:

    I would say they are wearing combat boots, which are army boots. I used to wear them in the early nineties and mine were way to big, but I wore them anyway!

    I'm just wondering, how does the sizing work when comparing against other shoes you own?
    If you're usually a size 7 in US women for example, does it translate the same on your Docs in UK sizing (UK 5) or do you find your Docs are 1/2- 1 size generous?

    I wear a US9 and I always take a UK7 in Docs..some of them do run a little smaller like the Original ones..I would always try them on first though before you buy them if you can.

    lmelanie: Thank you so much! I actually needed the information to convert my Docs into a feasible US size (Commonly, the US conversions for all my shoes differ). So I really appreciate the response.
