They're so expensive! Where i live they're like $80 to $120. Thats alot for a pair of boots. I got my boots from goodwill for 4 or 5 bucks and i've had them for 3 years. Do Docs stay together well, to me they look they'd fall apart like the sole would detach or something. I'd rather by a good pair of specialty work boots that are made to stay together.
Want something unique and punk, look at German Army or US Army issue tanker boots.. Sure Doc Ms are nice, but yeah.. Expensive! I just wear my Converse all-star hi-tops.. $30 shoes and comfy!
That's a lot cheaper than we can get them over here! :O For a size 10 US (size 9 UK that is to me =) ), they are the equivalent of around $65 in the UK!
Colour(s) of Converse?
My converse are black and white, noting special about them.. Mine are 9.5 UK and I have only had this pair for about a year and I only paid $30 here..
I bought them at a local store calle Shoe Show, check out their website.. (It seems the price went up a few dollars..)
Still, everyone's converse becomes unique - after you break them in - they develop character (to me, anyway :) ).
Thanks for the link!
Honestly any boots will last a good while depending on how you take care of them. I wish I took care of mines better. I used to rock them everyday when I was traveling, It sucked, I had started getting holes in them. If you really want your boots to last long and even become water resistant use mink oil. Mink oil is usually really cheap and really efficient, just use a rag and rub some of the mink oil on the boots and be sure to get the creases and let them dry out in the sunlight.
solovair rule. Theyre like docs, but theyre still high quality and arent made in china.
You can still get the docs Made in England - genuine original style.
Though more expensive for the privilege and less variety (e.g. no steel-toe). IMHO, I still reckon from the two other friends on here that have showed the 10 hole, steel-toed docs in their pictures & webcam, they seem to have the edge in looks compared to the other styles from England.
Just double checked, you can get some steel-toe original Docs fully Made in England from The Boot Company - here's the 14 eyelet steel-toe version. Though the 10 eyelet black steel-toed ones are not the original style sole everyone knows and have a ridge round the toe-cap. They do offer a 10 eyelet cherry red with steel-toe though in original style, which look pretty nice. But the price is way too high! :O
The soles look rugged on those - though I personally prefer laces, though I can see they'd be faster to put on. They are unique.
