I'm wearing dr martens 1461 with BEX soles. It is 1461 w thicker sole.

Looka bit like safety shoes but can pass off as normal work shoe if never notice.

Quality is ok for bbfa like me which need thicker soles for support. Walked in the rain, slight ponding, quite water resistant. I also apply mink oil.

I also work w electricity n the thicker soles help a bit in insulation, hopefully.

I don't remember exactly but mine even if not 20 years also confirm got more than 15 years and coming closer to 20 I wear them maybe only around 5 times in a year and surprisingly the soles are still good. The only problem is the leather sort of un-seasoned itself and the topline (at least, I think that's the correct term for it ... the edge in contact with your ankle) causes blister on my ankle like a brand new shoe.

Compared to a pair of Kings safety shoes I indented from work (and I had to top up cash from my own pocket to upgrade to Kings), I left it alone for over a year in my shoe cabinet because my existing pair of safety shoes were still good ... when I finally wore the Kings for the very 1st time the soles crumbled a bit with every step I took and there was a trail of sole fragments behind me ... I felt like I was The Incredible Melting Man or something

Dr Marten got slim toes box ? I find their shoes very chunky looking.

Dr Marten has one of the best and longest wearing shoes. A pair can easily last half a decade because their sole is extremely difficult to wear out.

They have those formal ones with the black thread instead of bright yellow ones which are more suitable for office.
