what are the best 1460s to buy? i've heard something about made in england being better and easier to break in?
>>
>>9168146
There's barely any difference. I wouldn't pay any extra for MiE & also 1919 is superior to 1460
>>

Are you a neo-nazi?

>>9168162
What's the difference between 1919 and 1460?

But yes, there's barely any difference in quality between regular and England-made ones.
>>
>>9168177

1919 are those hideous clownshoes that skinhead/groundskeeper cosplayer wears. It's him posting anonymous in this thread pretending someone is posting him as "inspo" and saying his boots are "superior".

1460 is the quintessential Dr Martens boots. If you want the classic look, get 1460's. If you want to look like OiOi get the 1919's.

OiOi, I hope you fucking die.
>>
>>9168205
1919 are 10 eyelet and thinner than the 1460

1460s are not as slim and are clunkier than the 1919.
>>
Dr martens 101. They have 6 eyelets and have black stitching. More people should go for these for sure.

Slimmer as in they aren't nearly as wide when viewed from top down. I didn't say anything about length. 1460s are wider
>>
>>9168096
god damn clown shoes.
>>
>>9168264

They're practically identical in terms of width. If anything, the 1460 has a slimmer form and is less wide.

okay children calm your fucking shit someone with actual experience is here to calm your goddamn bickering

>1460
original dm model/silhouette with eight holes
>1490
original dm model/silhouette with ten holes
>1919
model 1490 with a steel toe

1919s do not have to be that hideous blue color and are SUPPOSED to be the same silhouette as the other originals (1460/1490). that being said, after observing in person, the toebox appears to be larger in height, which would make sense as there is a steel toe. the steel toe in the 1919s is not safety rated so it's kind of pointless.

i have a 5 year old pair of nappa leather black 1460s and a 3 year old pair of oxblood mie 1490s. my girlfriend has 1.5 y/o a pair of chinese cherry 1460s. here are my impressions
>nappa 1460s
leather holds up best out of the lot due to being full-grain. hardly ever touched with dm wonder balsam and still soft and supple 5 years later. after years of abuse the soft leather can look very slightly 'slouchy' in appearance. soles are worn thin
>mie 1490s
favorite color of the three. cracked after 2 years due to salt exposure in the winter, though creases formed much quicker. i am unsure but i may have been overzealous with the wonder balsam, and i know this can contribute to leather rot, so it should be considered as well. inside surface of the leather is unfinished
>girlfriend's chinese 1460s
these are a darker red. gf is jealous of my oxblood color and worn appearance. the leather feels synthetic and plastic-y, though it is still composite leather. despite deep creasing, there are no cracks yet

in summary of my autism
>durability
nappa > chinese composite > english composite
>appearance
english composite > nappa > chinese composite

thanks kids will post pictures of my boots on request

How good are doc martens in general in terms of practicality/utility? Are they up to par as actual boots?

Sure they look cool but I feel like they're not durable at all and suck in bad weather. I'm hesitant to cop a pair of boots for over $100 that are only good for the aesthetic
>>
>>9169650
They think it's cute. It kinda is sometimes.

They're pretty durable, and the sole is good on a wide variety of surfaces (only thing I've found they suck on is ice). They aren't perfect, but for the price point you could do a lot worse. I've had a pair of 1461s for about two years now, and the only thing really wrong with them is some holes in the cotton lining. I used them for work (kitchen) shoes nearly every day for six months.

wtc my first pair of normal mens 1460s (wanted 1490s but they seem a bit to high after seening some inspo)

Should I go for the English made ones straight up or start with the normal chip chong made boots. Anyone one care to comment of the difference? Also what type of leather to get if I go the cheaper ones?
>>
>>9169158
Muh nigga, there's something great about responding to "nice docs" with a smarmy lecture about how your shoes are actually superior to docs because they're made in England.

dr autismo here to say that
solovair started making boots about the same time as marten but didn't get huge and move their production to vietnam or whatever

i also think the made in england doc's are made in the solovair factory

Solovoir was a licensed producer of docs before the greedy bastards moved everything to chinkland and actually increased the price.

Yeah, it would be a massive design flaw to put the main structural stitching on the outside of boots.

It's actually the most common place for the stitching. That stitching holds the sole to the welt on welt constructed boots.

Why is the sole so thin on these 1461's??
>>
do you guys rip off the tag on the back? like the weird little leather loop thing

was thinking of copping some arthurs but i don't want the little leather loop on the back
>>
>>9173702
it would make it a lot harder to put on the shoe on
you're supposed to pull the tab at the back when you put it on btw
>>
>>9173686

Knock offs.
>>
>>9173716
>>9173702
>mfw i accidentally ripped the tab off of my first pair

I don't really mind convenience, i can get them off just fine, i'm just wondering if the boot would look better with or without.

tbh i think it would look better without, i think it make it less flashy, more sleek/toned down

For the cherry red 1460s, is there a noticeable difference between "cherry red smooth" and "cherry red rouge leather"?

I liked the smooth in the store but amazon has only got the rouge type (and amazon is cheaper, otherwise I would just get them in the store).

so glad no one replied to this
>>
>>9174312
I called a local store and they weren't really able to help, does anyone know the answer to this for me?
>>
>>9174312
The rouge is like a dirty leather like it looks greasy and real cool imo I like the rouges more which is why next semester they're my first cop
>>
>>9174392
Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for.
>>
>>9174418
Good luck my friend and if you're a half size knock the half off to get your size because they stretch don't worry
Ex.
My size is 8.5 I got size 8 docs they're the best
