As always, Zappos rocked on service and delivery. As for the shoes themselves, these Docs are starting to finally break in after the first 2 weeks or so, but it was a brutal start with those deep heel cups that cut into the back of my feet. My suggestion is to wear heavier socks and put adhesive bandages on your heels when you first start wearing these. The next pair I order (albeit in 8-10 years probably) will be the same model but labeled specifically as Made in England and not the standard version that is now made in China. There is definitely a difference.

My comments below should be prefaced with the fact that I have been wearing Docs for 20+ years. The last pair I had was the Genuine Made in England and they were a nice fit but at the high price, I can't afford that. This Made in China pair has nice soft leather and the cushy sole like all Docs. Overall an apparently well made shoe. The problem I have with them is their sizing. I have a narrow foot so Docs are always a hair on the wide side for me but this pair is unwearable after being broken in. My foot slides around and within 5 minutes of walking at a good clip I get hot spots and soon enough blisters. I tried some Dr. Schol's inserts but they are not substantial enough to fill the shoe. Perhaps a $30 insole would help but how much does one invest in poorly fitting shoes.

There are always two questions Dr. Martens wearers have. Will these fit? How bad will the breaking-in process be? Well, among Mr. Martens wearers, the breaking-in process is part of the rite of passage. It's part of the mythology and heritage of this fine brand of shoes. I do have to say that the breaking-in of this particular model of shoe is short and if existent at all. My Dr. Martens model was the 1925, which seems to have been discontinued. This model number 1461 was the closest replacement. I did not realize it at the time, but this model (1461) is part of their Airlite or Airsole line of shoes. So, they felt like they were automatically broken-in, and also cushioned. That was a pleasant surprise. As for what size to wear, for US shoe sizes, I typically fit into between a man's 9 and 10 size. the rule of thumb is to order one size smaller than that. I ordered a UK 7 (man's 8), and they fit perfectly. My own rule of thumb is that you should order the same size of Dr. Marten that you do Converse Chuck Taylors. If you don't also wear Converse Chuck Taylors, then you aren't cool enough to wear these shoes either. :) Just kidding. Hope this review helps. In short, they are sturdy, thick, heavy, and comfortable, just how I like my women. :)

I'd also recommend: Converse Chuck Taylor.

My first pair of DM's (at age 39). One week of pain breaking them in and then they're butter. Great shoe. Black stitch makes them perfect for work. Get 'em (and don't wait until middle age).

I've been a long time DM supporter (23yrs!) having several disappointments during the dodgy years of transition out of England. Comparing these to my last MIE pair, it's hard to see any difference. Leathers seem about equally good quality, no blemishes, solid stitching. These have a padded insert, whereas the old ones did not. I'm thinking they'll last me several years of wear. The only con is that they do seem a bit larger than UK 10. I've added an insole and still need to double some thinner socks. Otherwise, great! Love them bouncing soles, like walking on clouds. Thanks, DM and extra thanks to Zappos!

I'd also recommend: Grinders, Gripfast, Vans

I love, love, love these shoes and Zappos! I haven't experienced any issues with breaking them in, but they are a little warm for the South Carolina summer! I originally ordered the 8 for my size 7.5 foot, but ended up returning and getting the 7, much better!
