SIZE: 8

    All our For Life boots and shoes come with our lifetime guarantee: we will repair or replace them FOR LIFE. Constructed using Hardlife Leather: saturated with water-resistant oils and waxes to provide soft, supple and durable leather with a matt finish. Made with Goodyear welt, the upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together using our classic air-cushioned sole with added thickness to the inner core, giving them a longer life.

    The footbed is cushioned, breathable and absorbs odour using natural active carbon. The laces are waxed with metal tips: we supply an extra set with each pair. We include a pot of our fantastic Wonder Balsam to care for the Hardlife leather. Our Forlife range are made using our comfort last which provides a generous fit, so if you are between sizes we recommend you order 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

    [Hardlife] Refer to booklet in packaging

    Construction

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

    Very comfortable and well made.
    You really do have to break in Dr Martens as one shoe caused a painful blister. So I wore a different pair of shoes for a week to allow the blister to heal, and a month after first having them, they are now extremely comfortable.

    Leather seems amazing quality compared to normal 1461s. Broke in a lot quicker too.
    A little on the large side. I probably should have gone into a shop and tried them on instead of buying online.

    Solihull, UK I like good quality.

    Nice quality materials - the For Life range are made using 'Full-grain leather' which is the best quality leather for making shoes with.
    Read the 'Terms and Conditions' of the Lifetime warranty before buying as it's not all plain sailing if you have a problem with a pair.

    They're becoming - or have already become - very (or too) expensive.

    They're quite a large fit - especially as far as the width goes (I'm not sure why Dr Martens continues to make ALL its shoes with such ultra-wide fittings).

    They don't do half-sizes.

    The leather seems really hard wearing and recovers really well with application of Wonder Balsam.
    I've walked hundreds of miles in the shoes already (including up a mountain in Italy) and so far they've been bullet proof.
    I normally wear a size 10 but had to go down to a 9.5 with these. Not really a problem as DM warn you of this on the website.

    DM service was great when contacted but unfortunately the warrantee card and Wonder Balsam were missing from my shoe box so they had to be requested separately.

    The shoe felt instantly comfortable and definitely better quality product.

    I'm usually a 10 in other shoes but size 9 in dm and these 9 also fit as other dms do
    Colour was brighter red than the picture shows which some others have already commented on.

    most comfortable shoes out of the box that I've ever bought; high quality shoe.
    Worth the money. Now thinking of buying a black pair!
    I will eventually grow to love the yellow stitching...and blood red is a good description! A more discreet brown shoe without the trademark stitching would be perfect.
