Hello and welcome to my 2nd guide, which follows directly on from my  1st Guide

Every year, DM do a range of material updates and limited editions - example the 8417z Union Jack 8 eye Boots:


and Dark red; dark brown; khaki.

The these in the 8 eye, are also take forward to the 3 eye, 10 eye, 14 and 20:

3 eye Shoes - 1461z


Black / Cherry / Gaucho

10 Eye 1490z



Black / cherry

14 Eye - 1914z



20 Eye - 1420z




In general the more eye-lets the fewer color range available to you.


To finish this 1st guide off, I want to discuss the cream-de-la-cream of the DM world; the vintage oxbloods.  These are very rare, and are a faithful reproduction of the 1st boots to roll off the production line in 1st April 1960 (hence the code 1460!).  These are made from the finest quilon leather; handmade in England, in the original factory in Wollaston, Northamptonshire.  They use the original tooling, thus giving the same fit.  Modern DM boots have a more generous fit - on average 1 European size bigger than standard branded boots.  They also have the original iconic yellow waxed stitching.  They come in 3 styles:

1460 Oxblood Vintage

1490 Oxblood Vintage

1914 Oxblood Vintage
