I’m currently saving up for a pair and planning on getting the original 8 eyelet ones. I’m not sure whether to get them in regular matte leather or the patent leather ones. Does one last longer than the other? Thanks!

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 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.

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 planet

And they are very thin and not leather i dont think. Might pay to try them first and not buy online.

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. :) x

Thanks for all who have responded! I’m leaning toward the patent ones:]
