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.

These are much too cute! I love them so much! They fit snug and I didn't know that's how they fit! People stop and ask where did you get those shoes! They are so different and cool! I adore them! (So does everybody that asks me where I got 'em!)

Boots are great, but they run at least one full size large. I measure as a 10-1/2 wide, so I bought the size 11 (size 10 UK), and they feel like 11-1/2. I added an insole, laced them tight, and wear thicker sock to make them work.

These shoes are flat out amazing. They are so comfortable and look great with just about anything! I would recommend big socks with these boots because they are a little loose at first and you have to break them in.

I had a pair of Dr. Martins and they had mysteriously gotten a hole in the fabric at the tip on my right foot. I don't know how it happened as it just appeared one day. I sent them to you your returns depart,emt for surely after a little more than a year of ownership this could not have been from mere wear. Surly Dr. Martins are made of sterner stuff. I even wrote for an update after a week (I never received a write back). Imagine my surprise when I received my shoes in a poorly packed box with a letter stating, "Your shoes have been received and inspected. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate this exchange for the following reasons...Wear and Tear." What? Really the life of the "The For Life Range," "rugged," "Hardlife," Dr. Martin is one year? I thought, and I quote, "The leather will look good for years to come" this is one year? That is depressing. My Chaco flip-flops have outlived my "For Life Range" shoes.

One complaint: The fit around the ankle is way to loose. Last pair of 1460's did not have this problem. Seems to be inconsistent quality control among the different factories in Asia.

I normally wear a size 10 in Nike's and Jordans. I fit into a UK 8 (US 9) in these. I've only had them for one day so far but they look cool and started breaking in with one day wear. My heels do hurt a little but it should get better.

I have had these boots for almost 2 months so far. They are incredible, I have owned several pairs of Docs before, and I do believe these are the first ones that breaking them in didn't make me bleed and cry. Undoubtedly this is because of the softer Nappa leather. But even though it is soft and supple, it still takes abuse. I wouldn't wear them to do construction, but I work at a full service fuel station here in Oregon, and have worn them literally every single day since I got them. The only complaint I have is that the toe cap is a little softer that what I would like. This means it dents, which makes bull polishing impossible and pointless. But, it's small lettuce to pay for comfort. I have loved this company and their products since I was a teenager, and it's good to see that even the Asian made boots are still up to snuff. When my taxes come back I'm buying at least 2 more pairs. The For Life boot, and probably a pair of capers.

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.

Unfortunately, it took me a couple of days walking on these to come to the conclusion that these are the most uncomfortable pair of boots I've ever wore. While just by looking at them you assume they are quite roomy on the toes, this is deceptive. My left pinkie is always trapped before reaching the tip, causing me pain every single time. The cheap, unlined leather construction folds a bit around the heels, causing cuts, even after wearing thick socks to protect them. Stylewise is classic Doc Martens, and you will never assume that boots that look so good and comfortable are extreme torture to your feet. I have seen knockoffs at Payless that are more wearable than these.

This review is more about the size and fit. A lot of reviewers say they run large. It depends what you are used to wearing. If you have only worn sneakers, then yes, their sizing will seem large. But compared to a proper leather dress shoe, if anything Dr Martens run half size small. For comparison, I am a solid size UK8/UK7 in a leather dress shoe, brands including Paul Smith, Allen Edmonds, Trickers, Edward Green, Crockett Jones, Bass, etc. All size 8US/UK7. Now in Adidas and Puma (the only mainstream brand sneakers I wear) I am a size 9 or 9.5US, with the same fit. so a huge discrepancy. With Dr Marten I wear a size 9UK/8UK which are half size too large but is fine with an insole. If I were to get my normal 8UK/7UK in Dr Marten they are just a tad too tight with my toe right at the end of toe area which makes them impossible to wear since your toe will jam into the front as you walk around. Something to hopefully narrow down the your mileage may vary factor when it comes to fit.

Nice boots, but not the Docs I used to wear back in the late '80s and early '90s. The leather is not as thick which makes the break-in period easy on the ankles, but I don't think they will last like my old ones did. If you can afford it, go with the Doc Martens for Life instead which have thicker leather. I always wear a size 8 shoe and these were no different in sizing. Toe box is a little narrower than what I am used to, but fit fine nonetheless.

These are the classic Docs I grew up wearing in high school forever ago. These were a gift for my husband. They fit according to size for him and are comfortable. I remember what a pain it was to break them in. He has had no problem what so ever with that! We are very happy with this purchase! Cant wait to order a pair for me! Shipping was great, they arrived super fast!

I bought these boots in the Grizzly Bear color and thought they looked great. I used to be able to wear Dr. Martens and thought maybe I still could, even though they only come in Medium width and I really am now a Wide. Well, they were beautiful boots, but I had to return them as they weren't Wide enough for me. So, if you have a medium foot, you'll love these boots. If you have a wide foot, don't even try!

I purchased these boots a few weeks ago and I am obsessed! I have seen a ton of people wearing these lately and thought I should try them, and I am so glad I did. The look is perfect, super edgy and casual but if you wear them with the right things, they can be dressed up too. I have heard horrible stories about breaking them in, but my experience breaking them in so far was not nearly as bad as I've heard. I wore thick, fuzzy socks with them and got a tiny blister, so I put a band aid on my heel and it was fine. Even after a few days of wearing, they loosen up a ton. They are now super comfortable and I have gotten tons of compliments! The quality of these boots is amazing so far, I would definitely recommend them! As for sizing, I normally wear a 7.5 and I sized down. They are a perfect fit, and do stretch out a bit after wearing. If you are in between sizes, size down. And if you are at all hesitating to buy these, do it! You will love them!

These boots are great. Cherry red arcadia is a great color. They are very comfortable and it only took two to three wears to break them in. I did some googling to figure out how UK sizing works and the fit was perfect. I have fairly wide feet and the regular width boot was fine.

These boots are great! They look even better in person than in the picture. I actually listened to some of the other reviews and ordered these boots 2 sizes smaller because according to some the size chart was inaccurate. I actually had to end up returning them because they were too small. So if you are wondering about the size FOLLOW THE CHART! The return process was completely seamless and customer service was great! They shipped my new size that same day and I got them the next day, then had 2 weeks to return them. Great experience!

I love Dr. Martens. They are so comfortable and so stylish! I have worn Dr. Martens for the past 5 years and I love it. Overall these are the best shoes overall to wear for winter and in cold places. I think Dr. Martens need to have prettier designs because I don't like them - all I wear is black and white because that's all that matches but overall I think Dr. Martens are fantastic!

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.

Received Dr Martens 1460 Greasy Blacks the other day. Arrived in 2 days. Quite happy about that. Happy with my purchase. Like a lot of the reviews say, Dr Martens tend to run a bit large. If you are between a size, go with the smaller size. Thank you Zappos for a great job and a great web site! Rock on!

This was my first experience with a pair of Docs and I'm more than satisfied! Despite the fact that I didn't heed the warning of the few reviews saying these bad boys ran a little large (which they do, about half a size), they're everything I expected and more. The "bouncing sole" of fame is absolutely wonderful- I can run like the wind in these puppies- something I never would've expected from a common pair of boots. Because I misevaluated the sizing, not a lot of "breaking in" was necessary for me. They look and feel great. Note: if you're looking for a more "classic" looking and feeling leather boot, don't go with the smooth black finish- it's a lot shinier than the photo gives away. It's much too soon to deem weather or not the brand lives up to it's claim of longevity, but I certainly don't doubt it and my brother has worn his pair through about a year and half of very frequent usage and they're still looking and feeling great (by his testament). The arch support could be a teensy bit better, but that's my only complaint. If worse comes to worse I'll buy some in-soles, but I'm not expecting it.

This was my 2nd pair of Dr. Martens 1460. I had a pair years ago that were slightly too small, so I eventually got rid of them. I expected exactly the same product, but this pair doesn't have the same heavy lug sole. At first I was disappointed, but I realized these were lighter and about as rugged. So, now I love them. A little lighter and very comfortable.
