Size guide

The 3989 brogues were first manufactured in the mid 60's and were popular with smarter counter cultures who were fascinated with the brand and its working class outdoor product origins. This season updates with treatment in Boanil Brush leather. Beginning life as a high-shine flat color which rubs away with wear to reveal another color underneath, creating a shoe that's as individual as its wearer.

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.

I have been wearing the original Doc Martens from England since the 80s and I will never purchase any DMs from other countries like Thailand. Quality and consistency in materials are the major factors for me and there's a difference.
This particular shoe, however, was slightly larger. Other than that, everything is fine and I love it.

Like most here reviewing their 'Docs', these are one of my many Doc Marten purchases and I am always pleased.

Made in England is the only way to go. Perhaps I am projecting my own emotion onto the shoe, but I can feel the love in my MIE's.

The shoes feel like classics. They aren't a dainty wing tip, these clogs are just as comfortable stomping through the brush, over hill and dale and beyond, as they are strolling along the boulevard with your best gal and a headful of romance.
I couldn't afford two pair.

Stylish, sturdy and built to last. These shoes can take the relentless heat of blacktop car lot in the Southern US and will come back for more.
Wish Dr. Marten made more wing-tip styles.

They look fantastic-classic with a bit of an edge and versatile. They certainly feel more comfortable than the Asian made boots...in all three pairs of my 1460's, I added the $9 insoles...my one pair that's broken in nicely is awesome can't wait for the other two; the 3889's footbed is a really soft, nice leather (see cons for additional details). I've only had them about two weeks, but so far, I only see high-quality craftsmanship on the pair I received, definitely work the extra $$.
The shoelaces-while laced impeccably-weren't all that great, though this may be a matter of taste. I got a pair of dollar-store dress laces that work for me fine. They feel to me that they run large about a 1/2 size-I ordered my standard shoe size (7 U.S. Also, a tip for boots-order up a size and put in a Docs insole-they're cut pretty perfect) and when worn with my Dr. M polka-dot socks, they were pretty loose. Worn with my Wigwam socks (higher cotton content, and uh...standard (?) sock thickness) they felt fine; that the world couldn't see my Dr. M polka dot socks is a shame. Lastly, while the inside of the 3889 is a huge leap forward from a pair of 1460's, I still find it a little lacking. Still too stiff. If these things had the interior of a Clarks un.Tudor, I'd buy them in bulk at double the price, and it'd be the last time I'd need to buy shoes. So, if anybody at Dr. M is reading this, some of us need to stand for comfort. ;)

A much different shoe quality wise when compared to the same style doc Martin shoe I purchased in year 2000. I still have the docs I purchased in 2000 and cherish them. I wish you guys well..but wish you would have the same quality as I remember and see in my old docs

Best dress shoe I've worn in years. Classy enough for office /business, or with jeans for a clean look. Boanil shine is fantastic ! A classic and beautifully designed shoe. Fits my wider stance perfectly. Thicker DRM soles provide great comfort. May DRM always make this shoe forever! Wonderful Shoe!
I'm flat footed as a pancake... So unless you've got hi-arches, it's a little roomy top to bottom inside shoe. Nothing I would change about shoe tho and I don't mind the extra room. A DRM insole fixes any extra play should it be needed .

I love the design & the quality. After starting a new job where I'm standing for 9-10 hours a day, I switched from a pair of feet-killing flats to this... I'm saved!!! With these oxfords, I can literally stand up straight all day & I definitely am not aching or in pain even after a full day of work. Of course, any tiredness I feel is simply because of the length of hours of standing in itself, but the fact that I can actually be happy about standing... Yay! Highly recommend for anyone looking for excellent quality dress shoes that are comfortable for standing all day.
Have not broken them in yet, so for now, the edges of the mouth of each shoe feels like it wants to dig into my skin under my ankle bones. They also look a little bit big on my feet since I'm a girl & this is a unisex shoe. But I'm sure these will grow onto me as I continue to wear them. I wear women's size 8 & am wondering if these shoes are too big or if I actually need that much room for walking, which I'm guessing I do.

I would like the edges of the shoe that sit along the ankle and such to be finished instead of having a simple cut edge without any protection to fraying, etc.
