When I was a teenager, back in the early 90's, I scrimped and saved my pennies for months and months so that I could buy my very own pair of Docs. I wore them the last two years of high school, all through college, every single day for many years of work in restaurants and kitchens. They finally gave up the ghost about three years ago, after lasting through a good many years of very hard use. I was sad to think that I would never own another pair. I have bad feet, though (see years of working in kitchens) and no pair of boots that I have owned has come close in comfort to my good old Docs. Finally, sick of wearing nothing but sneakers or suffering agony all day, I sucked it up, encouraged by favorable reviews, and bought a pair of Docs again. I ordered the Aztec, since that was the only pair in my size that Zappos had available, and since I do not feel quite punk rock enough anymore to pull off a cherry pair. The leather feels good and sturdy and has a nice distressed look, so that I was able to wear them without them screaming "We are new shoes!" The pictures really do not do them justice. I carefully inspected all the seams and stitching and was pleasantly surprised to see that it looks as good and heavy duty as ever. They were comfortable out of the box, without the agony I remembered from breaking in that first pair long ago. In fact, I put them on and went straight on a road trip, where they remained comfortable and wonderful while I ran around like a maniac setting up an art event. I credit their comfort, and my lack of aching feet, for the continued survival of a particularly rude parking warden. I will have to wait and see how long they last, but right now I am surprised how pleased I am with them. As comfortable as they are out of the box, I hope they get even better as they break in the way Docs do. And as always, Zappos is wonderful and their shipping is amazingly fast. I got these boots within two days of placing my order even though they were going to a PO box and the Zappos representative warned me that it might take a week.

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.

The Dr. Martens 1460 is exactly what it is. These are the most comfortable boots, and I wear them daily. The only downside is the break in period. I recommend breaking them in slowly. I work 12 hour shifts in the medical field, and so I wait until I've worn them several times prior to wearing them to work. Take care of them and they will last a very long time. I have owned about 20 pairs of these, and I do recommend buying them here at zappos, mainly because of their customer service. Any time I've had a problem or a question, they are available immediately. Dr. Martens run a little big. advise would be try them on in a store first.

I purchased these for my husband because although he is 41, he wants his feet to look like they're still 17. He loves them but agrees with other reviews that the quality isn't the same as they once were when they were manufactured in the UK. He still rates them a "5" though

Great boot. Feels great, wears great. And great delivery, fast. I wear a size 8.5 vans shoe and the Doc size 9 fits good, while leaving just a bit of room for a bigger sock or an insert. Also I got the grenade green, they looked to me to be more brown on the site but they are indeed a darkish green.

My first pair of Docs, these feel a bit too big and are a bit chunkier than I usually like in a boot. I haven't worn them much, but they seem comfortable enough. They'll work for winter and thick socks.

Excellent comfort for someone who otherwise wears only orthopedic sneakers. Heavy, but that's to be expected. Styles like an oxford under jeans.

This boot runs small and they're impossible to break. They're not comfortable at all and are overpriced. There are thousands of other boots to choose from! Don't waste your money on these!

These shoes look great and offer excellent support for my feet. I have plantar fasciitis and my feet feel wonderful in Docs. My only complaint is how quickly these shoes wear down. I'm trying to stretch them to a pair a year but realistically I'm about ready for a new pair every four months. The leather's pretty good if you take care of it, but I really wish Doc Martens sold replacement outsoles.

Another Amazing Zappos experience. I cant say enough about the customer service. While trying to purchase thes, the LAST pair in our needed size, my card wouldnt work> I attempted 2 diff cards. Neither working. I was sure it was an issue with zappos. Called and spoke with the most amazing CS guy. Worried that we wouldnt get the card deal fixed in time, he just sent the shoes! Shoes fit fantastically, soft, hardly a need to break in. Ive worn them many times since receiving. Great quality, as all Dr Martens are. Sizing is True.

When I first got the green boots, I'm afraid I thought they seemed a bit cheap and plasticky; however, once I began to wear them, they became my daily shoe. I walked to and from work in them, for 2-2.5 miles per day. The looked good, and I got a few compliments on them. Unfortunately, a crack developed in the green surface at one point, and the darker material underneath showed through. I took the boot by the local Doc Marten store to ask if anything could be done to fix it, and I was told it was unlikely and reminded that the shoes needed to be treated regularly--which I'd been doing. I don't wear these anymore, partly because they now have a defect, and partly because I don't want to make the defect worse. It's a pity they didn't remain in good condition for more than a few months, but I suppose they probably were made to look cool more than to endure a lot of mileage.

Great boots! I had a pair back in the 90's that I wore for 2.5 years straight and decided to try my luck with them now. I cannot tell a difference in quality if there is one. As for fit, I ordered the US size 9 and they are great (I wear an 8.5 Extra wide). Break-in was easier than I thought based on some other reviews and is nothing more than to be expected from real leather boots. I've already worn them for a week and a half - every day and I've gotten more complements on them than I ever got with my other boots! Insoles are a bit thin/lack arch support, but they are not 'uncomfortable' - just added a little bit more padding and I'm all set.

I have been wearing Docs for years! I just bought another pair. But that is after I about four years of wearing my last pair. Docs have always lasted a long for me. I wear them all the time.

I have to agree with others that the quality on the leather has gone down. Size wise, I wear a 9.5 US, I bought the UK 9 and added the inserts and they fit perfect. So, if you are a US size, order a UK size 1 smaller, if you are a half size, add the inserts and you will be set.

These boots fit just as they should, comfortable out of the box. Favorites. The black greasy leather is perfect for those looking not for the shiny boots. Got them dirty right away, and they look fantastic.

Love the look of these boots. Solid looking. Took a few days and blisters to break in. Got a size smaller and they fit great. Only thing: haven't even worn them a couple of days and already the leather is peeling and flaking. They are cheaply made uppers even though they have a solid sole wish I would have went with another pair because of the flaking, peeling leather.

There is a seam that runs along the top of the shoe that cuts into the top of your foot (front of ankle). It would be a great shoe with the exception of this. It is extremely painful! Don't think it would be possible to break in, seems like a defect.
