Anyone knows in KL where are the bigger shops that sells DMs? I know a couple of shops in Sungei Wang sells them, but i think their prices are on the high side.

Dr Martens just collaborated with Raf Simons:
http://www.drmartens.com/ProductList.asp?C...simons&type=All

My personal fav is the two-tone 8 holes.

Previously Dr Martens collaborated with Yohji Yamamoto and Agnes b. You still can find the Dr Martens x Agnes b in Singapore at Isetan Orchard and Isetan Scotts.

it seems like there is no love for DM in this forum. Oh well, nowadays not many ppl love the skinhead, punk or mod style.

yes, most of them are made in China to cut the overhead. However the Vintage line is still being produced in UK but at a premium price.

occasionally i do pay a visit to Pertama and Campbell and some of the shops there still carry, in a very limited quantity and size, those UK made.

Hmmm, i can't furnish any comment on the Made in China DM as all the pairs that I own are Made in England. Is it really that bad?

found this blog.. shock to read the below
http://www.alphabetcityblog.com/2009/05/do...vs-made-in.html
QUOTE
The soles/insoles are a little different. Honestly, I have a hard time believing the Vintage Collection DM soles are period-correct. They are extremely hard. It's like walking barefoot on concrete. Given DM's rep for comfort, this can't be right. The Thai boots are way more comfortable.


QUOTE
Most of those things are minor, with the important differences being fit, sole, and leather. Honestly, just to walk around in comfortably, I like the Thai ones better. The UK DM's look and feel more like "real" vintage DM's when you hold them in your hand, but they are a little bit sloppily made, are uncomfortable as hell and take forever to break in.


QUOTE
Hope this is still helpful to some people. I'm actually somewhat disappointed in my UK Docs and I thought about selling them for a while. They're now a little better broken-in, though, and I've got some good insoles for them so they're comfortable enough and I'm confident I'll be able to wear them long enough to wear them out. I really wouldn't buy these expecting them to be like the ultra-comfortable old Docs you used to read about or wear, though - just because they're made in England doesn't make them just like the old ones. I think the now-standard Thai version is actually closer to the original ideal at this point.

you shouldn't let the 'made in china' tag bother you too much. after all, more and more designers have shifted to china for two main reasons: bigger consumer market and affordable labour. you may be aware that burberry and coach are also made in china.

however you still be able to find 'made in uk' dr martens but at a premium. http://store.drmartens.co.uk/c-43-vintage.aspx

just for your information, even luxury car manufacturer like bentley is customising models for china market.

if all fail, try online.

Perhaps you could try the leather shop on first floor of campbell. Can't remember the name although just went there yesterday. they are leather specialist. They sell custom made leather boots, readily available boots and other leather products. They also do repair on leather items.

Went there to check whether they could stretch my dr mart to 1/2 or 1 size longer. Weird thing, after about 5-6 years, I put on the boots, after a long walk, my feet hurts like hell, as if the boots shrunk or my feet lengthen. It could be done, but they could not get the same colour for the rubber between the upper parts and the sole.

So I just get the leather protector/softener first to try to stretch the toe box. If that fails, hmmm.

Hey guys.

I scouted Campbell complex & Pertama complex last week in search of Dr. Martens and I came across quite a few decent shops that sell em.

Question is; is there a chance they're selling fakes too?
Cuz I wouldn't wanna get ripped off.

i had treated my crazy horse before; the moulding disappeared and appeared again. after a few treatments, i gave up and threw them away.

to prevent it, it is advisable to rotate them, especially leather shoes.

ain't that easy. i sent mine to a professional cleaner to get my pair done. however after a few months, the mould struck back.

apparently the roots of the mould were planted deeply into the core of leather. it is best treated at the initial stage of moulding.

BTW here are the pics of my Brownie & Blackie, used alternate days to work..as well as Mr. Mouldy...circa 1999....sayang wanna throw,
even though can be salvaged IF I send to a good cobbler.. i doubt he will regain his glory.....
both were bought back in 2008 @ Kampung Baru Kedai Jumble @ RM350, they were in mint condition thumbup.gif

btw was told never to use wax on DM, only normal polish, is this true?

last week went jalan jalan around pertama and campbell...and found out 3 shop (1 in pertama) and 2 in campbell selling Dr. Mart. Seems that that they are official malaysian retailer according to their Dr. marten website

but pls take note that the price is fix in pertama whereas in campbell price is negotiable UNLESS u r wearing bigger size US11 and above where u had to pay from RM30 to RM100 (depending on the sales person) (the ground floor cheaper compare to the one on 1st floor but actually own by same company - zolo ) !

also theres boots Made in England available but only red color size 8, 9 and 11 if not mistaken, the rest is mix made in china and thailand.

"Sole What" also sell fr rm499-6XX, not the conventional 1460 but the modern ones.
in the 90s, I used to get my Docs on sale for <rm200 @ RSH, sadly now it has becoming a luxury item.

Added on February 1, 2011, 1:18 amjust order this off amazon.com Dr Martens Walden Boots - Dark Brown UK10/US11 or Weston as known in UK (duh dunno why have different model name) but they are from the WASP collection

no lah the shoe price plus priority courier shipping is only USD100.99...they ship using DHL International Express Shipment and delivery within 5 working days max...i only pay USD 36 for courier coz the shoe got 25% discount even thought its already discounted !

i prefer to track my item coz have bad experience using normal mail, last time i lost some books, CDs and even bluray...never reach me...could be confiscated or taken by ehem ehem....heheh.they didnt send me any letter aswell for custom clearance or pickup etc

touch wood lah but normally anything below RM500 is taxless (item price plus shipping after conversion to RM). bought many things online...but for like amazon who wouldnt lower down the price in the invoice you need to make sure after conversion it stay below RM500 (item and shipping).

but the best online shop is cultizm.com or selfedge.com (if u aftter premium denim and boots)...i got my redwing 875 boots there 1 weeks ago (cultizm) and couple of denim off cultizm/selfedge.

just tell them to lower down the price in the invoice to avoid tax eheh...but its a risk u r taking coz if the item is missing then it will be paid according to the sale figure stated in the invoices. but dont worry normally they will ship using fedex and so far none of mine goes missing or got tax heheh and best part you can track your item...

p/s: also another trick is to ask the shipper to mark the item as GIFT.

Hello everyone! I've been wanting Dr. Martens boots since a few years ago. I use to surf this forum to seek for some infos about these boots. After so long, now I've made up my mind to have my 1st pair ever. I've decided to have a 1920 model with 7 holes and steel toe DMs as my 1st pair. With a budget of RM400, is there anyone knows where can I find this model? Any suggestions are most welcome wink.gif Here I put together the picture of it. 1920 model is just familiar with the classic 1640 model. It's just that the 1920 comes with 7 eyelets and steel toe. Correct me if I'm wrong smile.gif

solewat prices are soexpensive.


Dr.Martens 1920

RR Price: £84.99
Men's Style: Boots
Brand: Dr.Martens Condition: New
Colour: Black Sku: 016747-1920Z-M-SALE
Material: Leather
Inspired by Dr.Martens industrial work boots, this fashion steel-toe collection from Dr. Martens carries all of the attitude, without the additional specifications required for heavy work.
Material:
A firm leather with a fine print, giving a natural grain finish.
Construction:
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This, together with Dr.Martens Z welt-stitch and heat-sealing process, makes it unique to Dr. Martens.
Sole:
The original Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole, providing underfoot comfort and durability since 1960. It is oil- and fat-resistant, tough and offers good abrasion and slip resistance.

ain't that easy. i sent mine to a professional cleaner to get my pair done. however after a few months, the mould struck back.

apparently the roots of the mould were planted deeply into the core of leather. it is best treated at the initial stage of moulding.

Other shoes I wont spent but Dr.martens is OK.
My "steel cap" bought during the 90s is still in great shape. All it needs is a good polish. Their boots seems to last forever. But a bit heavy though...
Now I m into Palladium Pampa (canvas)

Yeah, Solewhat is expensive. Their markup is 200%.

I went to solewhat midvalley yesterday. Quite overpriced for the 1460 models going for RM459. Can get around RM350 at campbell and pertama I guess. And the low cut ones, 1461 models goes around RM350+. Wth?! And I guess these boots are one size bigger than the normal shoes like nike sb. These boots seem too big to my foot with the UK9, unlike the UK9 I wear with my sb. I guess I need to try the 1920 boot on my foot before I decide to really buy it.

hi, i just come across this thread, as mentioned that the uk ones have the VDM sole while the china ones have the DLM sole, can i know what is the differences between these two types of sole?

also it was mentioned that uk ones have a harder leather and china and thailand ones have a softer leather, will the softer ones be more comfortable? or the harder ones will offer better durability?

as requested.





did the VLM last for a longer time? as i read the wikipedia, Dr. martens made shoes in thai and china after 2003, so i guess mostly now in the market is the DLM sole then?

some other brand are using sole like the vibram, aztez and more, how are those compare to each other?


out of topic, something like the yellow part of a badminton sport shoes are lasting, but they easily slip on wet surfaces...

and also i found 1 other with steel toe, but inside it is written non safety shoes rclxub.gif

in the web it says the for life 1640 and 1641 are made in thailand


only british ppl can get the warranty? cry.gif


in the us web 1641 is 130 usd, but in the uk web 1641 is 120 pound sterling shocking.gif


if converted to ringgit should be more than rm400 right? haven't include the postage and possible tax hmm.gif


or malaysia dealer import direct from thai so should be cheaper? some forrumer mentioned 1641 around 350++ is consider overpriced? what range of price is consider ok?

Was at Peninsula Plaza Singapore yesterday, the 1460 8 hole made in UK is S$269. The lady boss said why buy such expensive shoes when the shoes can only last a few years ... i just kept quiet smile.gif

yea gave up on malaysia. gonna make a trip to singapore just for the shoes. friend said shop there was much better than here. and these shoes last forever. i guess the for life versions will survive a nuclear bomb attack.

by the way, anybody know where to get these?

Strongly agree with this statement. Go to SG if you want the good stuff. Even Timberland (supposely reputable brand), those that are bought in Malaysia last max = 3 years. I have one Timberland boots made in Portugal, bought from London, sudah 14 tahun, still in excellent condition.

Malaysia Tak Boleh!

as the owner, she just wants you to buy more shoes from her.

There's a pair of Crazy Horse on eBay... quite cheap but ending soon

http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/DR-MARTENS-ORIG...=item4cfaadcbca

Had several pairs of DMs since mid 90s. A few pairs stolen, a pair accidentally left at UK, only one pair left. Looks like a crazy horse but with padded collar. Bought used for 30 pounds at Camden Market London.

A month ago, bought my first ever made in vietnam cherry-red doc marts after many years, having been mingling with shoes of other brands. Having originally planned to get a pair when i go to hong kong. But on some fateful day, asos had a sort of stock clearance sale where the it only costed me around 38 pounds (rougly RM 190). Delivery was free and there were no extra duties charged thankfully.

To be honest i can't tell much difference apart in terms of comfort and sturdiness in comparison to the england made ones, shoes are likely to going to outlive me like every other pair of martens. The soles bounce like they should, and took a while for me to break them in like they should. However one good thing about living in Malaysia is our humid weather where you can soften the leather by just leaving them outside (shaded though), unlike back in the UK when I had to soak them in water, which gives nasty blisters. These shoes are the toughest thing on the streets, breaks people's feet when i walk over them tongue.gif . Especially in the current weather where it rains every single day, I feel extremely smug having dry warm feet snuggled within the waterproof boots while pitying all my friends soaked wet in their Nike's or Converse's. I can't think of another shoe which is both comfortable and possess a feel good feeling. In addition, gets lot of attraction from the girls biggrin.gif

I read from other user's review that doc marten's quality has really gone down hill ever since production moved to asia (*especially the chinese ones) how long did your doc marten last?

It is a good bargain then, cos the retail price is RM459 made in china for the 8 eyes 1460 in Malaysia now.
