the only doc martens I have purchased with a regular rubber sole. Others I have use the Aire Waire sole and have a special cushioning. This color is like out of the universe in intrigue, style and use. However, disappointingly so the material of canvas is ok, but very, very hard to keep clean. I mean unlike other shoes in pastel colors its near impossible in a simple wear. The color looked white to me on the website however its a very unusual grey-blue color it's really lovely. So take the good, with the bad...I do and have no regrets on the purchase in entire consideration.
