Yes, I bought a pair last month that cost like £70+ I think and they're pretty good tbh. They do crease/ scuff easily so take special care of them and if you buy them in-store one of the clerks should tell you how. They're fashionable, classy and popular rn and I can see why so imo yeah you should invest in a pair. I've never had Timberlands so sorry I can't answer that one.

I find they are too wide for my narrow feet, so then my feet move around too much and they give me blisters.

Dr Martens are very good l have a pair from when they were made in the UK they are now made in china like most stuff but they are still very well made and you can wear them for many years to come polish/ brush them daily and stuff newspapers in them after you have been out in the rain dont dry them near heat as the heat will age them it dries out the leather

Meh, they're quality and rep have taken a big hit the last few years, not the dependable product they used to be. (I've wore them on and off for 20+ years, my mum worked in a workwear place so I always got a pair of the new ones), I now wear HiTec Magnums for comfort, narrower fit as well, no particular fashion cachet to them though

I have three pairs and love them! I think if you get a pair that you can wear with most outfits like the picture or black ones it defo is worth it. I would recommend looking at Office and the doc marten website first because you can sometimes snatch some for 60-100 pounds. I have had them for two years and they are still in a great condition. I have had my timberlands for six years now and I still wear them to this day. I would personally say they are equally as good in terms of quality but I prefer the design of my docs more
