BLACK MERLOT TAN
SIZE: 8

    Part of our Made in England range, this 3989 Brogue is handcrafted in our original Northamptonshire factory to the same exacting standards we've demanded from the start. Hand-polished Brazilian leather lends refined shine and urbane style to this classic country gentleman's shoe, for unparalleled versatility and understated cool. A plain welt lets the rich leather and wingtip broguing own the spotlight.

    Material

    Hi Shine Classic 2 tone rub off leather - the 2 tone effect is created in the final shoeroom treatment to reveal contrast colour particulary in toe and counter area.

    Care Instructions

    Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth, allow to dry apply a Dr.Martens clear or colour wax based shoe polish as appropriate to restore shine as desired. Do not use any leather cleaners on this leather they could damage the 2 tone effect.

    Construction

    This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.

    Good soles, nice punch out detail.
    Heel area too high and unfinished, resulting in very sore and damaged feet. Very big for a size 5, leather rather inflexible, very expensive.

    The laces supplied with these shoes are not fit for purpose. Before buying I had seen another comment about these but was more interested in the shoe. The laces broke on the second time of wearing and I had to replace them with a more durable set

    Searched for a good quality shoe that looks smart at work but comfortable for my long walk into the office and back at the end of the day. Normally I buy Loakes etc and was looking to spend up to £300, so very impressed with this shoe, will certainly buy again.

    I was having trouble with Plantar Facitis (very painful heel).
    After a few days wearing these DM's I noticed a considerable improvement. I did also add an arch support insole too. The combined effect of the air cushion sole and the arch support must be the reason for the improvement because one day I wore my other shoes and the following day suffered a lot of pain again. I'm sticking with DM's from now on : )
    The price.

    I use my DMs
    +
    The shoes look good and have a nice deep maroon color that isn't very common
    Although the description states the shoes have leather lining that wasn't the case. They insides have a mesh like lining that caused painful friction after walking in for an hour.
    I have an other MIE pair that are lined with smooth leather I just hope DM haven't started to save cost by compromising on quality of materials and finishing.
