Dr. Martens 1461 3 Eye Women's Review
The Dr. Martens 1461 3 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 1461 3 Eye is a classic dress shoe with three eyelet and a smooth-finished, soft leather or suede upper. It has a manmade, air-cushioned and oil-resistant sole that give comfort and safety even when walking on slippery surfaces. The upper and sole are sewn together and heat sealed for a more durable shoe, the popular trademark of Doc Martens.
The 1461 3 Eye has a very plain and simple style. It doesn’t have any sophisticated design or straps. It is a polish leather or textile that has an attractive color. The sole of the 1461 3 Eye serves as an accent to the whole ensemble because of its yellowish color. And the Z-welt yellow stitches catch the attention, too.
The 1461 3 Eye is robust and heavy and needs time to break-in. The PVC sole and heel are meant to last for many years. However, new releases of the 1461 3 Eye from Dr. Martens seem to lose the original durability. After being used for a few weeks, some are already showing signs of wear and tear. Therefore, an extra care is needed to help this shoe reach the length of service the original 1461 3 Eye has rendered to its users. The 1461 3 Eye manufactured from England has a longer life-span than those made in China. Sadly, new releases are coming from the latter. The cushioned insole and midsole add comfort. Unfortunately, the fitting has changed also. The toe area is narrower and the heel area is wider than before. And there are no half sizes to address this concern.
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 business attire, too. Depending on the design, which by the way, the 1461 3 Eye has a lot of color and design options, this boot is definitely useful in many different settings.
Overall, the Dr. Martens 1461 3 Eye is a great value for money.
