I had a pair of Dr Marten's Mel Tana which have completely worn out (they were the only boots I wore for years including two pregnancies).

Sadly they seem to have been discontinued so can anyone recommend anything similar? I loved them because they were comfortable and slouchy and easy to take on and off and lasted well despite years of abuse.

They look like this:

Thank you

I had those and LOVED them. Wore them till they fell off me. Might be worth looking on eBay. I've now got these and love them but I'd look around for extra discount as I think I paid much less than that... m.cloggs.co.uk/product/black-timberland-womens-6-inch-premium-pull-on-boot---black-leather/98950361/

I've got a black pair I'm about to put on eBay, wore them lots but really wanted brown and couldn't really enjoy them.
Only thing is I removed the strappy bits as one of the poppers popped off and the strap kept falling everywhere I walked!
Size five, if you're interested I can send pics.

I have the Gayle which I love. They are now on their 3rd winter. Straps are a bit different though.

Thanks for the links. The gayle ones aren't quite slouchy enough.

The timberland ones are nice but a bit pricey.

I think I like these ones www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B072J4L1QS/ref=mp_s_a_1_34?psc=1&keywords=Fly%2BLondon%2B4%2Bboots&th=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&tag=mumsnetforum-21&ie=UTF8&qid=1510959336&sr=8-34 but they are also a bit pricey
