Outstanding service from Zappos!! Due to the whole size only production philosphy of Doc Martens, I aimed a little low and had to return my US 11 sized Docs for a US size 12; Zappos return policy made this almost unbelievably easy. This is my first pair of Docs, and while I love the look I'm not 100% convinced of the quality. They seem to be acceptable in terms of fit and finish, just a lot lighter material than I had expected.

1460 - Shoe is great. I have owned several of these shoes about 10 years ago and still cant get away from them. My only complaint would be the flat black ones I got might be more comfortable when they break in. The greasy ones I had in the past were more comfortable at first,

Great but need to break them in - I too have a pair from England but these feel great. It's taking a long time to break them in but warehouse work should take care of that.

Doc Martens from China...not quite the same - These boots are stylish and comfortable, yet do not feel like they have the same quality as the ones formerly produced in the UK. Producing these boots in China has appeared to drop the quality of the boot and its all-around fit. If you're lucky, grab a well-cared for, used pair of these boots that were produced in the UK.

Dr. Marten's - I really enjoy the new shoes and their enhanced comfort, but I wished their sizes matched american sizes a little closer.

Look great, long break-in - I've had several pairs of Docs, they all have long break-in times (lots of Neatsfoot Oil helps). I recommend if you wear a half-size, order the next size down (I wear a 10 1/2, but the US10 fits me pretty well. I didn't notice any difference between the English and Chinese made shoes, but I think the insole on the English ones was a little nicer...

A classic shoe and great delivery - First of all, kudos to Zappos. Not only did they have exactly what I wanted, but they even upgraded my shipping at no charge, so I got them within two days of ordering. What a fantastic company! As for the shoes, well, I've been wearing this style for years and they've always been durable and comfortable. The first couple of days you might want to wear a thicker sock than usual, just because it takes about two days for the top of the boot to soften, and during those two days without thicker socks I find it rubs the back of my legs, which can be a little uncomfortable. But once they're broken in, you can't find a more comfortable and classic looking boot. The only reason it gets 4 stars overall instead of five is that they've started making them in China, rather than England. The shoe quality seems about the same, but part of Doc Marten's appeal has always been the "made in England" stamp on the sole, and without that... well, I just can't give it the same five stars I would give a "made in England" shoe.

Mark - The design of the boots is great. Only thing is they make my feet sweat and when I wear it in winter. After a couple of hours wearing them and taking them off my feet, you can smell the nasty stink inside the boots.

Alright - I have bought Dr. Martens before. I ordered this exact model (not from Zappos this time, however) and was shocked when I read the label. Made in Thailand! I'm very disapointed. They look the same as the English manufactured models but I can feel the difference. The break-in period is lasting forever and the sole doesn't bend quite as easily. Still a good looking boot, but this particular style doesn't really go with anything.

Not what they used to be. This is my 7th pair of Docs, and my 3rd pair of 1460's in the last year alone. Dr. Martens switched from all-UK made to being made in China, and this has had a noticeable impact on the quality of both the sole and the upper. The soles don't last like they used to. They're still worth the money, although not as much, and I have yet to find a more comfortable shoe in the long run. Zappos.com is great, by the way.

A very nice boot, although stiff at first; it has taken some time to break in. It's very sturdy and well made and should last a long time. I can't say enough about Zappos though. Free, fast and efficient; I will always order from them.

Ordered the cherry red smooth. Striking color. Unfortunately, even after owing them a few years, they are still stiff. They squeak when I walk and I get bad blisters on my heels.

These boots were an odd mix...the left boot pretty much instantly felt fine, but the right one was a nightmare at first. The instep was really tight and felt like a clamp on the top of my foot. I finally got it loosened by jamming a jar into it over a few nights, and also using a wet towel helped stretch it. The bottom part of the inner shoe (the part your foot is on, inside the boot) started to move a bit too, and wrinkled near my toes. I was able to pull it back but I don't think it's going to stay put for very long. Again, the left boot fits fine and has none of these problems. If my right boot felt like the left, it would be 5 stars across the board. The leather is a lot thinner on the upper than I would have thought, but the boot is very lightweight and comfortable. The soles are very nice too. Right now the boots are comfy, but I have doubts about the overall durability of them, especially the one that had the foot sole/insert thing move on me. We'll see how it goes.

Nope, nope, nope. Too flat, too huge, too hard to get on. I felt like a lumberjack. Made my feet look ENORMOUS (I wear size 8). Soft supple leather, though. And I love how they grip the floor and make you feel like you can walk over/through anything -- however, NO arch support, and that is always the deal breaker for me.

These boots are very comfortable. They seem well built, but the leather is very thin and not of good quality. I think the overall quality was better when they were made in the U.K.

I purchased these in the navy blue. The boots are really shiny and look almost plastic. The leather is very stiff; they will definitely need breaking in. I could only wear them for a couple of hours my first day in them. I will keep them, but I wish the leather was more supple.

I'm a pretty big fan of Dr. Martens in general, but found myself somewhat disappointed with these particular boots. I bought my usual size, and while the length and width were perfect (as usual), they don't lace up tight enough and are "loose" around the ankle. Going down to a smaller size might help, but then they might not fit my actual foot. Also, as others have mentioned, they've changed the pattern of the outsole. Overall, they look good and have good cushioning, but I can't recommend them.

A painful adjustment - I had a beloved pair of Docs like these years ago, and they were great, so I thought I'd revisit an old friend. The look is still the same, but I don't remember the break-in period being half as painful the last time around. This pair is, in no uncertain terms, the most painful pair of shoes/boots I've ever broken-in, to the point that I have to give myself a few days in between each wear. I don't know if that has anything to do with the shift in manufacturing from the UK to China (if you were expecting "The Original," you'll be disappointed), but these boots are absolutely KILLING my feet.

Size is a problem - Love my old brown Docs that I’ve had for years and tried to get a new one in black but size is a definite problem. I am a size 6 but the shoe feels at least a half size too big that I have to try and compensate for with thick socks and cushion inserts. Tried going down a size and that was just too tight. Also, this "smooth" leather is really stiff --- have keep stomping on the whole thing to try and massage out the stiffness. Finally decided to try the smaller size in the nappa leather which was way softer. Wish I had gotten this shoe in with that leather but too late now.

Leather not as high quality as the old UK Docs - These shoes look as good as the old Docs, but the leather is of a lower quality. I am hoping after they break in that they feel similar to the other Docs I have owned.

Whoever changed the kind of leather they use should be fired - I love my Docs, and my old pair was finally really destroyed, so I ordered the same style & size. The other reviewers aren't kidding--sometime between 1998 and now, they've started using leather that's extremely stiff and painful and nearly impossible to break in. I wore mine to a movie, thinking that the walk through the parking lot would be a good short first breaking-in, and wound up with shoes in the same rock-hard condition they started out in, and bleeding calves. Not blisters; skin scraped off the back of my legs. I've been spending some time every night hitting them with a hammer on the floor, which seems to be helping. Otherwise, they're still Docs and still awesome, but don't expect to be able to wear them right out of the box.

Legendary Price, but now Chinese Made? Have bought Doc's for over 25 years. They now make them in China and they are not the same. Wrote to the company and they said they had to move production to remain competitive. Unfortunately, these went from beautiful shoes made by craftsmen in the UK, to run of the mill Chinese footware. WalMart eat your heart out. Best part is, you still get to pay the premium price (just like the original Docs). Does this make sense?
