These boots are made for walking – just get yourself down to one of the four selected Dr. Martens stores that are selling the classic boot for just £3.
I don’t have a huge amount of information about this cracking offer as Dr. Martens is being secretive, but here’s what I found out…
Last Tuesday (26 August), Dr. Martens posted a status on Facebook saying it will be selling the original Dr. Martens, which currently costs around £110, at original prices – £3 a pair. This is what the well-known boots cost in the 1960s when they were first launched.
The discounts starts on Thursday 4 September, when the stores open, and applies to two different type of boots from the original range.
You pick either the Black CHURCH monkey boot (£110 at Schuh and Dr. Martens), or Oxblood PHILIPS 4-eye shoe (£100 at Topman) and it’s one pair per person.
The offer will only be available in selected stores – London’s Carnaby Street, Norwich, Leeds and Edinburgh – and it will be available on a first come, first served basis. So get there well before the store opens if you want to stand a chance of bagging a pair.
Deals Hunter undercover
I got in touch with Dr. Martens to try to find out some more but it refused to reveal any further details so I decided to visit the Carnaby Street store. Here’s what I found out:
- Stock is incredibly limited – the shop assistant told me there might only be around 10 pairs available in each store.
- The store opens 10am which is when the promotion starts, but Dr. Martens expects people to be queuing from 8am.
- Once you’re there and the store opens, it’s a quick process. You choose your size and style in the queue.
So to be honest, the odds of casually picking up a pair of shoes for £3 is very slim. However, if you’re feeling lucky and don’t mind potentially standing in the rain for a couple of hours, give it a go.
Let me know how you get on.
