BLACK
SIZE: 8

    Elaborate and ostentatious, the adoption of Victorian mourning fashion as an expression of rebellious nonconformity rather than its original rule-following intent shows the ingenuity of the goth subculture. The very idea that the purity of lace was reclaimed by a subculture for its intricate, webbed nature makes it the ultimate gothic adornment. Our lace print contrasts echoes that sentiment, providing a stark contrast to dark fabric and leather—and setting the stage for lavish style. And as a print on a pair of 3989 wingtips? That’s pretty goth.

    This women’s wingtip shoe features contrast white eyelets, and was constructed on our iconic Dr. Martens AirWair bouncing sole, that’s oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance. It’s Goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. This women’s wingtip shoe was made from Smooth, our classic Dr. Martens leather: durable, with a smooth finish.

    Material

    Airwairs original signature leather: a firm, finished leather with a smooth, semi bright appearance.

    Care Instructions

    [Smooth] = Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth, allow to dry apply correct coloured wax based shoe polish to restore shine as desired.

    Construction

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

    Great style and hard wearing soles
    Tough leather but that's what you expect from a pair of DMs

    It's a threat looking shoe
    You just can't wear them. The leather at the ankle is too high and rubs badly. Haven't had blisters in years. My feet were crippled for about a week. Complete waste of money which is a shame because I love the look of them

    Well made and designed. Solid sole and long lasting.
    Take a while to ware in as the leather is hard which can make them uncomfortable at the start of wearing them.

    The most gorgeous shoes ever!!
    Ridiculously painful. I've had docs before and although they hurt to break in, they aren't agonising! Now these shoes are so stiff because of the design and the toe part is so tight!

    They're a really beautiful pair of shoes. The lace pattern is so different to any shoes I've seen before.
    Just the same as any dr martens..they take a wee while to break in but once they are broken in they're a great pair of shoes.

    The design is beautiful and I've had so many compliments while wearing them.
    As usual with any Doc Marten shows they take a while to break in and cause blisters for the first few weeks. Also go for a size smaller than normal as I found my normal size that I buy boots in was too big.

    Very stylish shoes.
    The leather is very stiff, so take time to be comfortable.

    I absolutely adore the style of these shoes. They go very well with either jeans or a dress and they feel like heavy quality.
    The leather is very stiff. Just like all the other Docs you do need to allow some time to break them in. Especially around the heel area.
