I bought a pair of vintage Docs in April 2013. It is now the end of June 2013, and I noticed that the leather has a small rip in the back, just above the heel. I'm kind of bummed, as I paid the extra money to get REAL Docs because I thought they were gonna last 15 years, not 15 months! Overall, they're still wearable, the sole is in fantastic shape, and they are comfortable as hell, I'm just now worried this little rip will get bigger.
I'm sorry, I meant to say June 2014. I've had the boots for 15 months.
