Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye Women's Review
The Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye is one of the women’s collections of Doc Martens, a company who has been in the shoe business since 1960.
The Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye is a fashionable 8 eye lace-up boot with a smooth-finished, soft leather upper. The style is the same but the leather design is different. There are eleven colors to choose from. Flower prints, striking red and metallic silver are included. These are youthful designs that cater to the younger generation. They are so nice-looking that anyone with financial means will be tempted to buy at least one pair.
The 1460 8 Eye has the traditional manmade, air-cushioned and oil-resistant sole that give comfort and safety even when walking on smooth and wet surfaces. The upper and sole are not glued but sewn together and heat sealed for a more durable shoe. The sole of the 1460 8 Eye serves as an accent to the whole ensemble because of its yellowish color. And the Z-welt yellow stitches grab the attention, too. These features are the popular trademarks of Doc Martens.
The 1460 8 Eye is tough and heavy; it needs time to break-in. The PVC sole and heel are meant to last for many years. However, newly manufactured products of the Doc Martens seem to lose some of the important qualities the company has strived to keep for many years. After being used for a few weeks, some boots are already showing signs of wear and tear. Of course not the sole yet, because it is the part of the shoe that is last to give up. The fitting has changed also. The toe area is narrower and the heel area is wider than before.
The heel measures 1.25” which give the wearer an extra height. This boot will look great with tight or loose jeans, long or short skirts, or any casual dress. It can be used for casual or business attire, too. Depending on the design, this boot is positively functional in many different settings.
Overall, the Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye is a great value for money for its fresh look, durability, utility, comfortability and varieties. It would be better to shop around for a big discount without sacrificing the quality.
