I've been wearing Doc Martens for the past 15 years almost exclusively, owning about 8 or 9 models among boots and shoes. The model 3989 in black is yet another member of the family of Docs and my third pair of non-England made shoes. My Docs have had an average life span of about 5-7 yrs. depending on use. Docs are known to be very tough shoes. I have noticed a certain decline in quality and less attention to detail and craftsmanship in my newer shoes. The non-England made shoe is a harder wear and lacks past finesse in the way the shoe conforms and fits to the foot. Even the 3989 is somehow an easy shoe to wear, much superior and easier than my last pair of steel toe Docs which completely refused to be tamed and wore hard on the feet even after 5 yrs of use. The 3989 has good looks, cleans readily with a brush without the need of shoe polish. I found that the eyelets are very tight on the shoelaces making them slide with difficulty thus is a difficult shoe to get in and out of as yet. I expect that they should loosen with time or maybe take them to a shoe shop to have them bored cleaned. This is a result of yet another cost cutter on eyelets. The old ones used to be made of metal maybe bronze and were good looking and covered the eye inside and out. The new ones are tiny and only show metal from the inside. Overall this a Doc shoe with a drop on quality and finesse, not as good as the old ones. It still has the distinctive good looks of classic Martens and is worth owning. But I do miss the quality of old Docs and wish the company will put more attention into their manufacturing process as they used to so as to bring back the top quality of such great shoes.

Zappos service was great, but shoes were uncomfortable. Leather around ankle very stiff.

I am ridiculously enamored with the pewter patent style of these. They definitely are going to take time to break in, but hopefully that won't take too long. One other thing to consider is these don't appear to be able to breathe at all, so that might be an issue. My one complaint is that the laces that shipped with them are really flimsy and feel like they are going to snap at any moment.

The leather on these is incredibly cheap it looks almost fake. For some reason the same model in the Doc Marten's store in New York City looked much better and more expensive. I bought these for work but stopped wearing them after two weeks because they did not look like real leather. They are also pretty hard on the ankles since they weigh a lot. These sit in the bottom of my closet.

This is the third pair of this style of shoe I have purchased in the last ten years - first time in brown. I have always had to break in the shoes a fair bit but these had particularly stiff leather. I had to do a rather thorough mink oil treatment to get the leather pliable enough to not create blisters on my slightly larger right foot. Once that was done - these shoes are great! Stylish, good support and good durability.

These were a gift for my husband. They ran true to his US shoe size. He appears to wear them in comfort. And he looks hot in them.
