can’t guarantee which one will last longer..
depends how often you use them actually..
patent leather looks better though.
I suggest investing on the bright pink(or any other bright color) 8-eyelet classic.
then tone a look down by wearing neutral colors..
like this look:
Doc Martens are awesome!!
Doc Martens are my absolute favorite. I’d definitely go for the patent leather ones. Those are more weather-proof, PLUS they look fantastic with virtually anything.
If you’re looking for a cheap alternative check out your local H&M and FAST! I picked up a pair of Doc Marten look-a-likes in patent white. Of course, the quality is probably lacking buuut they were only $10. I got the last pair, so get on that and get on it quick!
I like the matte ones better. I couldn’t tell you which lasts longer, but I think the patent ones look kinda cheap.posted about 7 years ago
im pretty sure the patent ones would last longer but i’d go with the matte because trust me docs will last you a lifetime! no matter what kind of leather they’r made of!!!!! and matte ones are hotter! thy’re like the studious shoes on the planetposted about 7 years ago
I got these, while they look great they squeek when you walk!
And they are very thin and not leather i dont think. Might pay to try them first and not buy online.posted about 7 years ago
I wear purple matt docs and love them to bits. I am going to buy some bright pink patent ones so I have the best of both worlds. They go with most things, you can look really girlie or something much edgier.
What tights do people prefer with them – fishnet, lace or normal black (semi opaque or opaque)? Or somethign more way out?posted about 7 years ago
Don’t know about Doc Martens in particular but in general patent tends to scuff more but if you don’t mind go for whichever appeals more. :) xposted about 7 years ago
