Hey I am not too sure which subforum I should put this in. This can be moved if it fits somewhere else :)

How is Dr. Martens’ performance in the rain and the snow?

I think they hold up pretty well in the rain! The soles are good but although the actual uppers should be water resistant I don’t think they are completely waterproof (you may have to put a spray or cream on them.) I’m not sure about the snow as it doesn’t snow where I live, but hope that helps a bit.

I did do a little research, they said doc marts are not too good in snow, salt wrecks the sole or something.

Now I wonder if I should keep mine or return them :(

I’ve used mine as snow boots. My docs are in great condition but I’m guessing more long term would be an issue.

hey opfiend, thanks for answering :) how long have you had your boots for? how are the soles? do they look just like normal wear and tear?

I’ve had my boots for 4 years. My boots are cowhide and I wouldn’t really reccomend that for snow but the soles are in excellent condition. Regular leather ones might be ok.

Hmm… wouldn’t salt end up wrecking the soles of most shoes anyway though? I would think that docs are more hard-wearing than other regular boots (other than shoes made specifically for use in snow of course!)

I walked around for hours in the snow with my Docs. They were great, snow and rain didn’t seep through at all, but since they are a light pink colour the scuff marks are really noticeable.

My DMs arrived last year the day before we were hit with 2 feet of snow. I wore them out in the snow the following day, and almost every other snowy and rainy day since.

They’re still alright. Better than my other shoes, anyway.

Just got a cherry red pair and they hold up very well and we get a lot of snow. I agree with the person who said that most shoes soles will be ruined by the salt too. KEEP THEM!
