I honestly never knew that Dr Martens is a footwear brand which offers shoes other than the safety industrial work boots I received as part of the uniform I needed when working in an environmental science laboratory last year. I still have them boots in my shoe cabinet.

I wore them 5 times a week and for 12 hours on those days, and I must say, there are comfortable as hell! The insoles are soft and structured for every day use in activities that require prolonged standing. It has such a support that I rarely feel the ache growing on my lower back. It also has non-slip soles which helped me whenever I'm in the wet lab. It is overall an amazing footwear, designed to perfection.

Durable and long lasting, I am now eyeing my next purchase of Dr Martens' 1461 womens shoes!

I still remember my maiden Dr Martens experience as a huge rush and clamour to get to the outlet at Wheelock Place to get that particular size of that particular boot. I tried on and found it to be a good and comfortable fit, bought it and never looked back. Dr Martens, although it may be a bit expensive, is definitely a great walking shoe that literally makes you feel as though you are bouncing on air with their trademark "Bouncing Soles". It takes some time to get used to walking with boots, but I think it's definitely worth it.

I like that Dr Martens can complement different outfits, whether you are wearing jeans or skirts or shorts, it can still go well with a pair of Dr Martens. It adds a rugged touch to your outfit and yet still manages to look classy. Dr Martens has different outlets in Singapore, but I recommend the ones at Wheelock Place and Orchard Central. The outlet at Wheelock Place may be daunting to walk into, because the sales staff there are quite punk-ish in nature, but they offered me great service and were ever-willing to answer any questions I had. The outlet at Orchard Central is quieter and more out of the way, so you should head there if you like a shoe shopping experience to be quiet and undisturbed.

Do not be fooled by the idea that Dr Martens only has those few models that you see so commonly around Singapore. Visit one of their shops and you'll find that they actually have quite a few different models, some of which are extremely eccentric and unique. I love my Dr Martens, thumbs up!

Dr Martens are THE go-to brand for those looking for a solid, fashionable pair of shoes that can last forever. The shoes come in a wide variety of designs and are sure to make a fashion statement whether tomorrow, or five years down the road! In fact, a particular line of Dr Martens comes with a lifetime warranty.

Furthermore, the designs of the shoes from this brand are such that they can match almost any outfit or styles, from grungy tomboy to cute and girly.

Apart from looking amazing and being amongst the most durable shoes available on the market, Dr Martens are also incredibly comfortable. The soles are very well-cushioned, I can walk in them for hours on end without blisters or discomfort.

The service provided at the store is also excellent. When I visited, my size was out of stock. The staff was very apologetic and immediately offered to reserve a pair for me from the incoming shipment, which I was thankful for.

Dr Marten's chunky footwear certainly succeeded in luring my attention! The wide array of designs to choose from and the iconic thread weaved around it's circumference are certainly a delicious combination that my feet yearned for. I recalled wondering why my school seemed to be raining Dr Martens daily. Now I know.

The padding was fantabulous. It felt like my feet were being placed on a custom-made sofa! There were no blisters whenever I strut around using it. Some paddings are too thick, my shoe felt like it contained stagnant pools of sweat though.The footwear was so solid, it seemed I could reach Mount Everest summit without even the aid of a stick. The frictional grip my Dr Marten's own will put bus tyres to shame. Unfortunately, it is too frictional. I tend to trip over nothing whenever I'm clad in these Dr Martens.

Oh apart from those marvellous matte or glossy designs that caused many to reel in envy, Dr Marten's are rather heavy. Rather is an understatement. They are VERY heavy. I don't mind the weight though. It indirectly aids my calves to get toner.
