MADE IN ENGLAND Dr Martens Boots (CUT IN HALF) – 1460 doc marten review

so today’s the day we’re cutting open
the made in England Doc Martens Doc Martens most expensive boots and
comparing it to their cheap boots and a pair of vintage boots so let’s get to it
I’m so sad about this when we were tearing apart these vintage boots we I
think we’re like 6,000 subscribers and I was like well when we hit 10,000
subscribers will tear apart these boots and they’re like literally like four
days later we were at 10,000 and I was like oh I didn’t even get to wear the
boots and so that was like a week ago and we run production out of the shop
all week long and so I only get a film on Saturdays and Sundays so right now
we’re at 17,200 subscribers so if you like what I’m doing lik e and
subscribe because this is super fun even though it’s it’s really heartbreaking
but yeah thanks and today I’m going to try to knock out three videos first ones
going to be the Doc Martin and then the second one is going to be the bellroy wallet tear down where I take that apart and see how it’s built and how
good quality it is and the third one is I bought a really cheap belt on Amazon
so we’re gonna do a little tear down with that too a little bonus episode for
this week so here we go that was a bit of a battle getting this
one apart so I got high hopes for it so here we go wow this is actually really
similar to the vintage pairs of boots pair of boots it’s really just a three
part construction the little pad for your your pad of your foot and then
this felted fabric and then the insole or the that waferboard high density
foam stuff there wasn’t even an insole in it which I don’t think is a bad thing
insoles are cheap and you might want to choose your own anyway so okay let’s
tear apart is welt now all right I got the welt taken apart it
is a goodyear welt in the way that the welt this part that goes around the side
of the boot is stitched to the actual boot itself most Goodyear welts go
through the sole this one does not neither does any of the other Doc
Martens so they say it’s a good year welt but some people say it’s not but
definitely the welt is definitely stitched to the boot now let’s look at
the weakest point on Doc Martens which is the way that they hot knife weld or
stick the welt on to the the sole so what they do is
they take a hot knife and the welt which is this dark part and the sole which is
the lighter part are two separate pieces and they run a knife along it which
heats up both of the plastics or the PVCs whatever they’re made out of and
fuse them together they say it’s a really strong bind or it’s a really
strong joint but it’s it’s had a lot of complications in the past a lot of
people don’t like it so let’s try ripping this one apart and see how it
does hi I’m gonna cheat cuz I can’t get it to
come apart again so where’s my knife hi
you’re in the shot scoot oh my gosh this is hard oops I think I’m
actually tearing okay so that’s a good sign so the actual welt is tearing
before the seam does so that’s a good sign so oh I don’t have it all the way
off so that’s super good news I’m really happy about that
so this welt was a huge pain to get off it was harder than the vintage boots and
significantly harder than the cheap Thailand boots you can actually see you
where on the heel and kind of in the toe area when I was pulling that welt off it
wasn’t coming loose and it was actually just tearing at the welt instead of
tearing the welt from the sole like there’s some of this black plastic still
left on there that restores my help in Doc Marten boots so now let’s do a
little side by side by side comparison of the three they’re basically all built
the same way the same style there’s a few differences here and there like
these two are almost identical it’s the same construction around the same
strength of welt to sole and they both have that that like fiber like felted
fabric on the inside so if you like the vintage ones these ones are really
really similar to it and I think they probably are just as comfortable I don’t
think this felted fabric is quite as thick as the vintage ones but they’re
they’re a whole different world than these ones like these ones are it’s all
foam there’s no felted fabric in it and foam always breaks down because the more
you press it the more those little teeny cells inside there squish over and over
and over and they start to break apart versus a felted fabric this stuff is
just gonna conform to your foot and it’s not gonna fall apart as easily so I’m
gonna I’m a fan of these two boots these ones still suck at least this one didn’t
pretend to have a shank at least it’s honest with itself
you know lets measure how thick and how much these felted fabrics on the
inside compress so the made in England felt compresses down to about three
millimeters okay and then we go to the vintage pair is more closer to four
millimeters so the me- or the made in England boots don’t have quite as thick
of a felted fabric on the inside and the vintage ones have a better thicker
it just feels different too like you can tell it’s a lot denser and it kind of
springs back more this is a lot thinner alright now let’s talk some leather
quality so on the doc marten site it says this is a corrected grain leather
and that there’s a print on top and the print is it’s made to look like it’s a
full grain leather where you can see like an individual pores and stuff but
that’s not the actual leather it’s just the print on top so the leather is a
four to five so it’s two millimeters thick which is a four to five ounce
leather which is pretty on par I think with these other boots yeah four or five
ounce actually these vintage ones are a little bit thicker so this is probably
like a six ounce leather so it’s two and a half millimeters six seven ounce and do
they just don’t make them they don’t make them like they used to
I actually like this leather I like the color of it I don’t like the dyed
through black leather I like this more natural leather it’s a I had to call Doc
Martin and it’s a chrome tanned leather and it’s a has a really it’s a corrected
grain leather which and if you don’t know what any of these terms are I just
posted a video about like leather 101 kind of going through the different
corrected grain full grain top grain different dyes different qualities of
leather so that you can identify different qualities of leather so that
when I talk about this I don’t explain it over and over it looks like it’s a
top grain leather I think I can see part of the grain in there especially on the
tongue area so decent leather I think this leather would last a long time if
you took care of it so now for like an overall review kind of what I think
and everything I think that these are good boots are they worth the two
hundred twenty dollars or two hundred forty dollars that they cost online maybe
not you know they’re they’re pretty pricey for what you get but they are
much better than their their like their made in Thailand boots good good
not great I’d say nothing special but nothing horrible I think the last and
and the next we’ve got the solovair boots so I’m really holding out for the
solovair boots I I’m hoping they’re better than these and then after solovair I wanna do a red-winged series where I just do exactly what we did with these boots
but with Red Wings they’re a lot more expensive so hopefully these videos keep
doing well and I also want to tear apart a timberland boot Timberland boot
I’ve been getting tons of requests in the comment section but I’ve never worn
them so let me know what kind of timberland boots you want me to tear
apart but that’s my review of the most expensive pair of Doc Martens see you
also shout out to all the dads who get mad at me for cutting towards myself
thank you for thank you for looking after me I appreciate it


  • 4:24 For one ghastly moment there I thought he was going to cut the cat in half.

  • can you make a video cut in half to a timberland 6 inch please?

  • When you hit 100k subscribers, you should cut an Alden boot in half. You might want to get a band saw though, I don’t think you could do it with just a razor knife.

  • Solovair vs. Doc martens!!

  • I think "cutting _____ in half" is gonna be your thing, man.

  • Love the video.
    Would love to see you cut apart the derby solovair boots since they're so often compared to dr martens!!

  • Dr Martin, the PC feminist brigade official footwear…

  • I've got Timerbland 6 inch, and they cost a pretty penny. Thankfully, I manage to get them on expenses at work lol.
    Don't like them though. Your feet get really hot in them. Having said that, they're well put together, and you can tell they're quality. I'd take a DM over these though.

  • So what is your go to boot?

  • Any ideas on the best wax polish for Dr Martin boot please,
    Great videos . Take care. R

  • would love to see a redwing cut away. love your channel keep up the good work man!

  • Tear apart and full review on Thursday boots, I'm looking for a pair of boots right now and they are my n1 choice right now. Good job btw just discover you good channel love it

  • you need to do this to blundstones! Prove they arnt up to the hype!

  • Hey do one with blundstones please! Great content btw.

  • Hello Weston , how about dissecting a pair of used Allen Edmonds from eBay, your opinion will be very useful before one making the investment on them

  • these look nice thinking if I should add it to my collection

  • I keep hearing thr made in england soles are shit compared to old ones.

  • Can you do a review of Thorogood boots made in USA?

  • Thank you so mush! I bought my first dr martens pair! And I choose “made in England” <3

  • Looking forward to the solovair review

  • Do the 6 inch premium Timberlands, and next do a pair of Red Wings!

  • You should cut a part some USA 🇺🇸 made boots like thorogood or Carolinas

  • What kind of tool do you use to cut the strings with on the soul

  • omg your cat is so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • What about Frye boots?

  • Do the Solovair boots

  • Why even buy docs anymore period? There are lookalikes that are made the same way that are just as crappy yet cheaper. Good old fashioned combat boots are all I will wear any longer. Docs aren't worth the price. You can get combat boots for cheaper and they last longer.

  • Can you look at some Blundstone boots?

  • Got tricked by purchasing the “Made In England” DM’s. I knew immediately that they were not what they were years ago. Very uncomfortable, etc… I’m done with the brand.

  • Cat is good, more cat please

  • I had a Vintage pair of Docs that lasted for 2 years of hard wear doing event production and lighting. I was impressed with the durability and bought another pair of the cheaper 1460's and they were garbage and fell apart in a few months. I was thinking of going back to my Corcoran jump boots which always seemed to serve me well. Can you do a video on boots that you'd recommend for quality and price?

  • This is a cat video disguised as a ‘tear apart’ video.

  • Definitely would like to see one of Redwings heritage boots next 👍🏼

  • I subscribed because that cat !!!!

  • Wolverine vs Red Wing vs Thorogood's. With Wolverine, specifically the 1000 mile boot. I guess that would be comparable to the Iron Ranger from Red Wing and you could company those with a Thursday Boot Company Captain as well

  • 7:52 This for me look like genuine leather

  • To show you the power of Flex Tape I cut this boot in half!

  • Please do RedWing boots

  • Great show! Stick it to those Dads brother LOL

  • I have a cheap ones made in Vietam i think, they have 7 years of abuse and they look mint, also they stay confortable to wear.

  • You should have tried to wear the thaï boot on the left foot and the made in england one on the other foot…

  • im more concerned about the mesh sole than weld. sole is prone to getting hole quicker.

  • You should cut a pair of vintage Timberlands inhalf.

  • good content to inspire me to turn off adblocker, thanks for the informative videos man!

  • I have some dr martins combs… And they've lasted me 5 years so far… And Ive gone to punk shows… Hiked through woods.. Walked through snow and rain… And they're made from canvas or something

  • Seems good quality ! Subscribed

  • For $220 what better can you get?

  • Awesome

  • You have to remember there is like a 70% vat in england so those boots almost cost the same thing

  • This mad lad need some ad money.

  • Thanks, I felt for you and the poor boots)

  • no Martins for my money…thanks for the hard work man..

  • Do some, Alden’s and/or 1000 mile boot. Please and thanks.

  • Cool. So how do you put a new PVC sole on the docs? I've never seen anyone do this. Tried to pay a local cobbler, he used glue. Fell apart after a few weeks. He tried a couple most times, then didn't want to deal with it anymore. I stopped wearing Docs because the soles always wore out and then I had to toss them out.


  • Make sure to cut along the grain to not void the warranty.

  • Nice content but don't let it get to your head when you start to get more people

  • Not just Dads that noticed tou cutting towards yourself… LOL

  • awesome video, subscribed!

  • Way he cuts the boots with his fingers and wrist being so vulnerable to be cut has me holding my breathe.

  • Me: 4:28 a.m. Time to sleep got to get up in 2 hours shit to do tomorrow

    Youtube: How about someone cutting leather boots in half?

    Me: Yes

  • Those hook knife things look sharp as fuck! I wouldn't mind sellotaping a few of them to my fingers in preparation for when my husband chooses to engage in coitus with me. I would like to damage his cock as a way of saying "thank you" for selecting my dried out husk of a body to enter 🙂

  • YouTube's algorithm made this video NEVER pop up – just saying.

  • wow you gained so many followers in a month!

  • i come for the boot tear downs but i stay for the cute white cat. . .

  • Well, I’m a Grandma and that cutting is making me a nervous wreck! I was a hair stylist for 30 years and I made many cringe at my scissor and straight razor techniques so I see both sides!!🤷‍♀️💇

  • Please review Danner boots

  • Have 3 pairs..
    – 1460 Matt Black, 8 holes – made in Lao Por
    – 1460 Brown, 8 holes – made in Vietnam
    – 1461 Black, 3 holes – made in China
    the better once for my feet, but it would be nice to try the "made in England" once 🙂

  • We are just here to watch your cat do shenanigans

  • Thanks for the video. I bought me a pair of mie docs after watching it. I bet my old [not-docs] 10 eye with steel toe and sole wouldn't be so easy to review 😉

  • Fun channel. Glad it's growing.

  • good gawd I cried on all his videos as he's cutting boots! is this how it's going to be for now on??

  • Get rid of that Bloody flag, how very dare you……i grew up with these doc`s lol. New sub here from England

  • Blundstone Boots next

  • Any difference between the DMs Made in China Vs Thailand?

  • Where did he get his knife

  • It seems you are getting almost 1000 subscribers per day now. I was wondering if you with break 50k by New Year’s, and you’ve already done it! Congratulations! 🏅

  • Yellow thread for the welt…yuck. I don't know why Doc's always have that ugly shit on them.

  • Just band saw the whole thing.

  • How do you know if your boot is the England made?

  • I'm waitting for redwig iron ranger

  • You are so brave, don't know if I can watch…

  • So made in England still don’t have a shank in it?

  • Say which model you’re testing. It looks like the Pascal 1460 [email protected] softer pliable leather, are they?

  • ive got a pair of danners from the late 70 so fucking good

  • Hello, could someone tell me please the length of the 10UK or 11UK insole in inches? Thank you

  • I constantly get lost in relation to the which boot is being talked about …." this boot" " this boot" " "this boot"

  • If you ever get a chance, would you make a video on Danner’s Bull Run boots? I own a pair and love them. I would enjoy seeing their construction materials. Awesome content, by the way.

  • I just got a pair of Doc Martens 2976 with the slip resistant sole. The sole is definitely different from the 1460s but they only cost $150. I’d be curious to see how they compare with the other 3 you’ve done. Love these videos where you deconstruct the boots!

  • Makes me sad seeing a pair of docs torn like that…

  • what i that knife you use to cut the shoes

  • Hey man im a really big fan of the fear of god leather boots i was wondering if you ever come across any it would be interesting to see what you thing of them and do a video similare to this.

  • Got my first pair when I was 12. I'm 56 now and still have them and they're great.!

  • All of those are really cheaply made.

  • I'd rather get a pair of vintage or used mid range boots like A Es or something

  • Sorry mate, are you cast in Falling skies serries?

  • My Gen-x daughter loved these boots. Our millinial kids loved them and now our Gen-Z granddaughter loves them!

  • Cut in half a pair of Solovair boots!

  • do they still have steel toe versions ? why none speaks about the real 90's deal ?

  • nice cat video
