These are comfortable, but do need some breaking in. My only complaint about them is that there are no half sizes available. I usually wear either an 8 or an 8 1/2. The UK 6 was so small I couldn't get my foot in without pain, even with very thin socks. The UK 7 is too big, but with my orthotics and heavier socks they are very comfortable. I wouldn't wear them for a day long walk though. Dr. Martens, how about some half sizes?

I bought this shoe to replace a pair I have had for about 10 years (heel was worn beyond repair). Unfortunately, they don't make them like they used to. The shoe is much more bulky and the back is so high it cut into the skin above my heel. It's now at the shoe maker. I am hoping he can make them wearable.

I love the look of this shoe! Unfortunately they were a bit stiff and the heel was causing a blister immediately. Too bad.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstocks,

LOVE these hip shoes... they pretty much go with most everything. They are quite stiff out of the box. Especially the backs and I had to use band aides for awhile but they are great now.

I love these shoes. I read the reviews and "true to size" seemed to be the consensus. So I wear a 6.5 and ordered the 7's. Too big!!! So I ordered the 6's and they're a perfect fit. I say if you're a half size, order down. Also, do not understand people who mentioned the shoes need breaking in. I think they comfy already and not rubbing anywhere.

I own several pairs of DM boots and shoes made in England that I bought before they moved to Asia in the early 2000s. These 1461 W shoes are the first pair I bought since then. They re from Vietnam. The quality seems lower than the older MIE DMs (which is why I put 4 stars overall), but they re still very nice and look gorgeous. So far, I m very happy with them. I ve had them a couple weeks now and have been wearing them almost every day, mostly comfortable right out of the box. I thought the back of the heel might dig, so for the first few days I put moleskin across my ankle bone and covered it with duct tape (a great tip I learned online), then put on socks. This worked extremely well. I ve been wearing them about 8 hours a day with no discomfort or blisters. I don t use the moleskin/duct tape anymore and they re fine. I first ordered the regular 1461 shoes, but they looked like clown shoes on me, so I exchanged them for the 1461 W (in the same size) and there s a real difference between the two. If you re female, definitely go for the W version. Size-wise, I m a women s U.S. 7.5 in just about every shoe I own, and all of my DMs are U.K. 5, a perfect fit. One more thing...Zappos customer service is the best there is. I received the first pair in one day, then when I needed to exchange, I got the new pair the very next day. (I wish Zappos would start carrying the Solovair brand.)

I'd also recommend: Solovair (the original DMs that are still made in the same factory in England)
