These are fantastic boots. I've worn Doc Martens for more than 15 years now, and each time I get close to wearing out one pair, I immediately start shopping for my next. Here are a couple points to consider before buying these boots: 1) They run a bit large. I wear a US size 10 for everything (running shoes, basketball shoes, dress shoes, and so on), but I had to go with a UK 8 (US size 9) for these boots because the UK 9s were way too big. 2) These boots need be broken in a bit before they start fitting comfortably. If you are a first-timer to wearing Doc Martens boots, don't give up on them just because they don't feel good at the beginning. I would suggest just wearing them around the house for a couple hours at a time for the first week or so, and after that they should feel great.

Do not buy these until they change back to their old ways. I will never buy Dr. Martins again. Been wearing this brand for 20 years and they have sunk to a new low. These are cheap junk leather boots, they could have gotten a better boot at Wal-Mart for a cheaper price. They look and feel like plastic. These are cheap, do not buy, like I said I have been wearing Docs forever and they are nothing like they used to be. I am very disappointed, go to Wal-Mart if you want cheap leather boots! These are not what they used to be.

Love my new Dr. Martens. I changed out the footbed insert and put in a Walking Company orthotic. I wear a size 8 1/2 shoe. My foot is a medium somewhat wider in the toe area. So the men's UK 7 fits well, as it has more toe box room.

I'm not sure if these were fabricated as the original specs, or the newer ones, or what, but I love them and they fit great, they are well made, beautiful...what can I say? In a world where nothing is the same as it ever was, where quality has gone, these are my favorites.

These boots look great (I bought the Grizzly/Bark color), they feel good (after being broken in, they rubbed my heels raw the first week) and they seam to be well made. Now, I say seam because I have no point of reference, but I have noticed no obvious signs of shoddy workmanship. I will say this though, these boots are lighter than my 13 year old Docs and those are leather shoes not boots, I'm not sure what this implies in terms of quality (if anything), but it is interesting. Practically speaking, there is no leather lining and the inside upper part of the boot is simply raw leather (the same color as the boot), the inside lower part of the boot is some kind of cloth material and where these two parts meet at the heel is a little sewn ridge, that ridge rubbed the heck out of my heels. I suggest wearing double socks and tying your laces extra tight (to prevent rubbing).

Nothing beats the quality of these boots. I've owned them for over 10 years and love them. I wear them daily and they last about 4 years before I replace them. I used to work in a kitchen and was on my feet all the time and never had problems. They can be a little rough breaking in, but once they are, they are extremely comfortable.

Beautiful boots, only I found them like a half number larger, maybe because of the UK sizing. Thanks to Zappos people, they are great.

I love these shoes! They definitely make a fashion statement. It is very tricky to find the right size though. I also love this site! Their customer service is the best I've dealt with. They really know how to fix a problem...any problem...with no problem! I will be buying all my Dr. Marten's from Zappos!

These 1460's are the only thing I've worn to work for 18 years. I also have different Docs for school, for the gym and for just knocking around. Great support, great wear. I always shop around - Zappos has the best prices, consistently. Incomparable service.

For me, these boots were not true to size, but it's nothing that a nice, comfy pair of insoles couldn't fix. I've been wearing these lovelies for a few days now and they feel like I've had them forever. Yay!

The actual finish was not as "distressed" as it looked, but still flexible. I had to get a UK 5 (I usually wear woman's 8, and the UK 6 was recommended). I can wear them all day in full comfort.

Really like these boots. They broke in very quickly. Did have to get a new insole to make them perfect. They scuff easy so beware that ad well but then again they are boots.

Excellent construction. Leather has micro-perforations (such as they are tiny holes) and I have worn them all summer in New York with none of the foot perspiration. These boots I loved with strength. I have worn them in the rainy times as well and entered the water, my feet have remained dry. So I can't helpfully explain the wonderful property of this boots. It can breathe and also it can prepare against the water, so I look forward as the winter boots becomes mine to affront any snow invasions. I must quickly investigate duplicate purchase in another color to choose before they are sold out. I think if I could afford it, I would like ownership of every color indeed!

Always and Forever - This is by far the best boot I have ever worn. I had a pair for five years before I finally wore a hole in them and needed to buy my new pair from Zappos. I still have the old ones for when I go to concerts and in mosh pits, they hold up great. I also use them for when I know I'll be doing something where they might get further damamge. They never leak, never poke or bother my feet and I dread the thought of five more years down the road when I need to buy a new pair again and they don't make them anymore. Any other boot I have worn has had nothing on these, the only thing more comfortable are my moccasins. I hope I die before I have to live knowing that another great thing that this world had is gone.

I gave these as a gift. My boyfriend did say that felt really narrow but he thinks they will loosen up. I bought a pair he didn't like originally from Zappos so I had to send them back and order a different pair. FREE shipping and returns made it possible to get the right shoe without additional cost.

Dr. Martens 1460 Series - Actually this is a present for my husband for Christmas. However, he currently owns the exact pair and absoulutley loves them. As for my experience with Zappos.com, it was a pleasure to do buisness with them. Your turn around time is fantastic and you definitely will have a customer for life. Keep up the great work.

Good quality - I have had this pair since '95 and they truely live up to the quality that Docs are known for. Granted they are looking rather ragged now, they are still in great shape, and I use them if I'm going to do some rough work outside. I also own the typical Doc sandals which are OK. Just OK because I have a narrow foot and they don't exactly stay on very well. However, I use them all summer, and after 3 years, they still look brand new. I just bought another pair of black Doc boots this week so I'm hoping that they also live up to the boots I originally bought. And yes, what great prices!

This is my 6th pair of Docs. I love them as much as all the others. I have to admit, this is the only pair I ever had to break-in, but, after a month they fit my feet perfectly. As I knew they would. I agree, they should definitely bring back ox-blood, that was by far the coolest color ever. My fellow soccer moms think I am crazy for wearing "kids" shoes, but my feet feel great!

Best shoes I have ever had - I do a lot of walking around my college campus, and since I have sensitive feet, my feet would often feel very sore from walking around in sneakers all day. But these are great, my feet don't feel sore at all after wearing them all day. They hurt for about 4 days after I started to wear them, but it was bearable. I can wear them with anything; jeans, dress pants, etc., and they look great.

Oh baby - I have these in cherry red and they're sweet. My fourth pair of Docs (black mary janes, brown sandals, and blue/green boots) and my favorite. Yes, they do need breaking in, but that's why eventually they fit your feet like they would fit no one else's. It's a trip when you first try a pair of Docs, the air soles are great. I've had these for four years and the soles are still just like new, the color of the leather just as lovely, the shine remarkably resilient. And, oh course, you can never beat their style. One suggestion: If you don't wear socks in these the leather inside the boot tends to actually cut your feet. There is no lining inside these boots.
