How To Spot The Differences Between Original & Fake Dr Martens Shoes

Updated on November 10, 2014

How Can You Tell The Differences Between Original & Imitation Doc Martens Shoes

Since 1960s, Doc Martens shoes have been one of the most popular fashion item for counter-culture enthusiasts like me. These shoes often linked to punk and skinhead culture in the mid 80's. Dr Martens shoes were exclusively made in the UK during the early years, but somehow they decided to release the asian-made version in 2002. Don't worry, both of them are still authentic and carry the same quality. The only difference is, you can find a brand imprinted on the side of Asian-made Dr Martens.

Recently, I found a lot of imitation and fake Dr Martens shoes on the shelves with slightly lower price. To avoid being cheated into buying those fake product, you need to know something about the original and authentic Dr Martens shoes. This way, you can easily spot the difference and buy original shoes with confidence and top notch satisfaction.

We recommend new buyers to buy original Dr Martens shoes from authorised dealers and website like Amazon
