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.

I've been wearing Doc's for a very long time.Greasy 8 holes,monkey boots,creepers,(they were my go to night shoe in the late 80s.)I'm not a loafer or Rockport chukka kinda guy.Dr. Martens are a staple of my wardrobe.The sizing is the same as it has been forever.I'm a size 9 or 9.5 foot.A size 9 USA does the trick every time.I always put a footbed in them due to the lack of arch support.The quality isn't as great as it was 20 years ago,but what is.If you have owned Doc's in the past and liked them then buy them.If you have never had a pair and are thinking about it, well you probably shouldn't buy them.You just won't get it.As always Zappos was timely with the delivery and i would not shop for footwear anywhere else.Like Dr. Martens, Zappos is where it's at.

Boat Y

from Beach Haven,N.J.

Dr. Marten 1460 series boot cherry red. I shopped online very thoroughly for a well made workboot with a gum sole that would leave no marks on any surface. I need a boot with a sole such as that, as I work at a marina and work on a lot of boats. Almost every boat is all white and I needed a gum sole boot that would not mark and blacken the gelcoat decks. I searching for a boot that was rugged, had good reputation for comfort and quality, a handsome boot, and could take abuse around the boatyard. This style and the red vintage color attracted me, and I researched the boots. I heard nothing but excellent remarks from happy customers who have owned this series boot. I just received mine today and they feel broken in, right out of the box, and they're so attractive and elegant, yet rugged. -And VERY comfortable. I've decided NOT to use them for work, but rather in place of wearing sneakers. They're just as comfortable, and so much more dressy, but not over-dressy. I'm now going to buy another pair just like them for work. The leather, I might add, is the softest and the soles conform to my feet at every step. I would recommend them for outdoorsmen, workmen, and people who enjoy a ruggedly stylish boot for every day use. When I get my next pair, I'll use them at work as well as at the rifle range, where I need a good field boot such as these. They look real military-like when you tuck your trousers into them, too. I'll forever purchase Dr. Marten 1460 series boots as long as they keep making them in cherry red and gum soles. I just plain love them. And Zappos delivered them to me in just 2 days. They're a very well oiled machine when it comes to customer satisfaction and reliability. I'll tell all my friends and family to go to Zappos for all their footwear needs. Great prices, great products. Just as good as I would rate the boots. Thanks Zappos! Ilove my new boots! I'll be back for more.

Brands I'd also recommend: None. Can't go wrong with these.

I used to love DM's (over 15 years of loyalty), but this last pair has been such a disappointment. After trying to break them in for two months, they still cut in on my heel, and the finish is already coming off of the shoe. Sadly, I cannot return them, and the manufacturer will not take responsibility for their poor quality merchandise. Let my waste of money serve as a warning to others, if it isn't a good fit after an hour of wearing them in house, return them. I will not be buying DMs again, unless they change back to the way they used to make them!

I have had Doc Martens through the years and they have always been made of the finest quality leather that is supple and has a beautiful grain to it. The leather in these shoes is so phony looking that they could be pleather. They are not supple at all, no grain to it and just looks like a pair of shoes bought at Target. What happened, Doc Martens? The shoes I bought were made in Vietnam. I feel like Doc Martens has ended their era of excellence and has downgraded their excellent quality products to the garbage that I just bought. The only good thing about this purchase is Zappos and the excellent customer service that I received.

Good boots overall. They are darker than the online picture, but still look good. The leather is much softer than other Docs I have, so they didn't take as long to break in. I've noticed Docs nowadays fit a bit larger. I wear 10.5 but I have 3 pairs of Docs in 10 that fit fine.

MY OPINION ON DOCS - I've had my Docs since last year. They're really great! I like them very much cause I can wear them with everything. The only problem is that there is not air coming inside the boots from the outside. When I go to school, I wear shoes for about 10 hour per day, and after having worn my Docs for so many hours my feet are really "boiled" and since about four months ago my boots have begun to stink (even if I sometimes wear trainers and I wash my feet and change my socks quite regularly). And it got worse the few times I wore them in summer. However, the stink is bearable. Apart from that, I'm satisfacted with my choice and I'd BUY THEM AGAIN !

No half sizes! My shoe size is 10 1/2 so I puchased a size 11. I have to wear two pairs of socks and they still don't really fit! Plus, they make my feet sweat all day long. Although they feel okay for awhile, after a couple hours standing, my feet start to ache. If you normally take half sizes I'd pass on Doc's!

Awesome. Just awesome. I have flat feet and walk all day at work. These are by far the best shoes I've owned. They are so iconic. I always wear a 9.5 and purchased the UK8. They fit perfectly.

Well worth the price. I love Docs...I wear a half size so I buy them a size bigger and then put inserts in. They are the most comfortable work boot you will find.

I bought these recently and I have been doing some reading online on a lot of reviews on what size to get and mostly everyone says get a size down or something but for me I got my actual size and they fit fine, althought it would of been better if Dr Martens made half sizes but they do not, so I just got a size 8 in womens and they fit just fine. I tried on the size 7 in womens and they were just too tight for me, so I definitely recommend getting your actual size. But I also recommend going to a store and trying them on so you know what size to get for sure. They are great shoes that are very comfortable. They are easy to wear with jeans and what not! This is my first pair of boots and I love them!

The last Dr. Martens (1460s) I owned lasted for over five years of heavy use. They were produced in England. These ones were produced in Vietnam - so it will be interesting to see how long they last. They broke in quickly and look great. I would recommend to anyone. I had to order a full size smaller than last time too?

I knew I wanted Doc Martens for my next pair of boots. I found the 1460's at a sporting goods store in Minnesota for less than Zappos, so I placed an order. A week later the email read 'the item you ordered is not available in your size. I have canceled your order and closed your account'. Nice. I knew I should have shopped at Zappos. I placed my order, and two days later I am stylin' in my Doc Martens. Why did I think I should have gone anywhere else?!

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.
