Luvs you should try the internet. In addition to Ebay they have a lot of discount stores that have very good prices.

I brought a beautiful handbag that is an exact copy of a Dooney and Burke and I paid half the price.

Go ahead and give it a try - you have nothing to lose.

I've got a pair I've had for years. When I went to get a new pair (I'd worn the same pair all though high school and uni so after 8 or 9 years of continuous wear they needed a rest) I found out they are made in China and Thailand now not the UK - they are still great shoes but they are not quite the same imo. Got them anyway - love my docs.

I always buy my Dr. Martens on Ebay.. I pay special attention to the Doc Marten logo on the inner heel. That's usually a good indicator of low or no wear.. I have scored several pairs of Sandals that are new for under $20.00..

They last so long, I just love having them..

Luvs, lots of eBay traders sell new, not used. Have a look. You've nothing to lose but a few minutes of your time.

ugh, my Mom just threw my old docs through that washer of hers; she's gonna dry them upsidedown. i'll vaseline 'em & buff to shine.
if they don't get to me wear-worthy, well......
they were excellent docs.
i begged her to get me others, 'cept she she'd get me laces instead.
she's already getting me a 'Last Supper' puzzle.
see if those babies get to me wear-worthy.
