IME the DMs will last for years and the Blowfish will fall apart by Christmas.

DMs nicer anyway.

I like the DMs, but the sole puts me off. So I vote Blowfish

dexter73 Tue 16-Nov-10 12:48:38

I don't like either, but Blowfish are less bad than DM's.

I like the blowfish in design but they are not leather.DM's remind me of butch lesbians ( sorry if that offends anyone )

the Doc Martins

I like the DM's, but I'm not sure about the v wide tops.

DMs - I prefer their soles too. And the tops of the Blowfish ones look too fussy to me.

I love the Blowfish ones. Nearly bought them myself but was put off because they aren't leather.

Although DMs look heaps more hardwearing.

Blowfish. Really dislike the DM.

SDixie Tue 16-Nov-10 14:36:44

Blowfish. I just think the DM's look too chunky.

BibiThree Tue 16-Nov-10 15:03:19

Argh! I am now more confused than ever!
I have pretty lady boots but want something more chunky and the DMs look lovely, but I'm drawn to the blowfish ones because they are grey and look v comfy.

They maybe comfy Bibi, but they are manmade so you will end up with cold and sweaty feet. I vote for the DMs, you are paying £30 more for something that will last three times as long (at least). And they are v. stylish, I think.

SDixie Tue 16-Nov-10 15:49:49

I think for me the DM's just look a bit too goth-y or emo-y if you know what I mean. I think the blowfish ones look more stylish. Although WillPenn is right that the DM's will be better quality.

I got the DMs and they are luverly!
