Product Review: Doc Martens Boots

Dr Martens. It's one of those things any fashion lover will want. A good old-fashioned pair of Dr Martens boots.

I've always wanted a pair, and for years I searched for Doc Martens. It's really difficult to find them in Malaysia - and even when I find them, they aren't in my shoe size or it's not the colour/pattern I wanted. And it doesn't seem right to spend RM400 to RM500 - yes, Doc Martens boots are expensive! - on something that is anything other than what you want.

If this is the first time you're reading about Doc Martens, Dr Martens is a brand that is most famous for its footwear. The skinny is that they're very long-lasting and very durable boots. And most recently, their DM boots have been stomping their way into the the shoe closets of Hollywood A-listers and fashionistas all over the world. :D

Blake Lively. Taylor Momsen. Jessica Alba. Lindsay Lohan. Avril Lavigne. Dakota Fanning. Agyness Deyn.

So, I'm sure you can imagine my excitement when I found out Agape Boutique has brought boots inspired by Doc Martens to our Malaysian shores! XD Sure, it's not the real DM product, but it's a great pair of boots nonetheless - and it looks the same. Hehe!

Plus, it's only a fraction of the price at RM80 for a pair of DM-inspired boots. We're talking gorgeous genuine leather, heavy, solid boots that go with shorts, jeans, skirts, dresses and leggings. It's cool with all kinds of weather, all over the world, where ever you go. And it comes in so many pretty colours and patterns for us to choose from!

DM-inspired boots, available for RM80 per pair at Agape Boutique *here*

It's also available in two different heights. I got the shorter ones
because I was afraid the tall ones may be too warm for Malaysian weather :)

I know what you're thinking next - "Oh no, another catalogue picture! How do I know what the boots are going to look like when I receive them?"

No worries, shopping kaki! ;) I've done the worrying for you, and done the month-long pre-order wait too! With the boots safely in my hands, tried and tested - I can assure you that these boots are every bit as gorgeous as the photographs. :D Feast your eyes on these photos I took of the boots I received! :D

Matte black, size 39 for my 25cm feet. Perfect fit :D

Beautiful, right? :D These boots are also very comfy because of a lot of cushioning!
Pardon the wrongly-tied shoelaces, I was a bit blur when lacing them up :P

It's so worth it. You have to get a pair. :)
Just remember to get the right size -

Wouldn't it be super hot and sweaty when wearing them?

I've been meaning to get a pair, but im contemplating and afraid that it'd be a sauna for my feet...

Your Shopping Kaki said...

Hi Dupicalz! :D Hmm I think they would be only as hot as sneakers :) The temperature should be fine as long as you wear socks or tights :D

Hannah Afia said...

Just wondering, is the soles or any other part of the shoe consist of any 3-dotted skin aka pig skin?

Your Shopping Kaki said...

Hi Hannah! :) Ah no worries! As far as I know, their boots aren't made of pig skin as that material would be too costly to be only RM80, hehe :) There are also no traces of the 3 dots. I'll ask Sarah of Agape Boutique to double check and comment here! :D

Agape Boutique said...

Hi Hannah,

Yes, as Sha-Lene said, our item are not made out of pig skin, you may refer to our post out about Pig Skin:


Nikki said...

I've been looking for this for quite some time until I found your site!
I clicked on the link to agape boutique just now but I cant seem to find the exact same pair I saw in your site..
I saw a similar one but with brown sole instead of a black one. If I order it, will it be the same as the ones in your site?

Agape Boutique said...

Hi Anon,

This pair have sold out, winter is approaching factory might re-produce around end of Sept ~

MiraSiComot said...

how to buy this boots? I'm very interested!

Anonymous said...

In KL, you can get them from Pertama Complex, Campbell Shopping Complex.

New shoes aren't Made in England anymore. They are now Made in Thailand or China.

The Made in England shoes have imprints on the sole. Those without Made in England imprints are from China or Thailand. But don't worry. They are still authentic. It's just that they want to save on labour cost. Labour cost in the UK is expensive.

Mine is Made in England and I bought it few years ago.

Authentic dr martens are worth the price. They are super comfy and last really long. I guess it just isn't worth to invest in them in a hot country like Malaysia lol but a lot of bundle shops are selling secondhand dr martens

Anonymous said...

I know this post was really long ago but how comfortable are the shoes? Are they comfortable enough to be worn for long? I plan to wear them while travelling in the UK so will be walking quite alot. Also, are they water resistant or waterproof?

Sha-Lene said...

Hey Anonymous, I've asked Agape Boutique to comment a reply to your questions but I also wanted to add my two cents. In my opinion if you want to wear (new) shoes while travelling and walking a lot, you need to break them in and season them for at least a week or more before you wear them abroad. In my experience, all new shoes, no matter how comfortable they are, will usually create blisters etc when I wear them for the first few times. I would also recommend wearing thick socks with boots if you are walking a lot.

Lastly, I have different types of Doc Marten boots: the leather ones are not waterproof, but my rain boots are waterproof. They are like a plasticky type of material on the outside (but leather on the inside). So it depends on the type of boots! I would say Doc Martens are really water resistant unless you are sinking your shoes in inches of water and rain. Hope that helps!
