OXBLOOD DM BLACK
SIZE: 8

    All our ForLife boots and shoes come with our lifetime guarantee: we will repair or replace them FOR LIFE. The HardLife leather is saturated with water-resistant oils and waxes to provide soft, supple and durable leather with a matte finish. The classic air-cushioned sole has added thickness to the inner core, giving them a longer life. The footbed is cushioned, breathable and absorbs odour using natural active carbon. Our laces are waxed with metal tips and we supply an extra set with each pair.

    We also include a pot of our fantastic Wonder Balsam to care for the Hardlife leather. Our Forlife range is made using our comfort last which provides a generous fit, so if you are between sizes we recommend ordering a size below.

    Material

    This is a full-grain leather with a smooth, waxy finish, treated to be water-resistant and have a longer wearing life.

    Care Instructions

    Really soft leather meant that unlike every other pair of Dr Martens I’ve had these took no breaking in until they were comfortable as pairs I’ve had for years. Thick waxy finish and really sturdy laces.
    They scuff quite easily but they’re very waxy which means scuffs can usually be rubbed out quite quickly.

    Excellent quality, been wearing Docs since the early 70's. They still look good (iconic?) even today. They fit well and, after the break-in period, feel like slippers. The For Life boots have slightly more supple leather from day one.
    Just nit-picking but the famous 'bouncing soles' could do with being thicker and with deeper tread. Also, they were a full size too big when they arrived but this was my own fault as I was warned in the advert. That's all though.

    The materials used really do look nice, the pictures do very little justice. The maintenance of the shoes is also very easy. These shoes seem more "Matte-Like" than traditional DMs however my partner actually prefers this style. These make the perfect gift if you're looking for something special.
    The wearing in time as always but this is to be expected.

    - Softer, more pliable, higher-quality leather. They break in really quickly and are way less likely to give you blisters.
    - Squishier, more comfortable insole.
    - Wider than regular Docs - GREAT for wide feet.
    - Higher quality laces
    - Generally a better quality boot. They feel like a real practical pair of boots, not just a fashion item!
    - The price is a bit 'ouch' to start with, but you quickly realise that you're paying for quality. These guys don't feel like they'll fail me.
    - Overall, no complaints!

    Springy comfort doc goodness. Lighter than they look. Can polish up for work and muddy up in the woods, genuine all-rounder.
    Lace broke on first use. Tough to break in.

    Out of the box, these are the comfiest docs I've worn in years. I haven't had to use the repair/replace service yet so I can't comment on that aspect. The quality feels like the quality was 20 years ago. If I have to repair/replace every 12 months like I have to with ordinary docs, they will be worth every penny.
