Very disappointed in the latest pair of Dr Marten 1460's. I have owned several pair of these boots all were excellent with the exception of the last pair I purchased. The sole began to separate on the left boot after owning them for 3 months. I appreciate Zappos generous return policy. These used to be a quality work boot that I would were for years. I am wondering if Dr Marten's quality control is going down. Have they changed the manufacturing process or location? If Dr Martens is going to produce crap like this then they need to cut the price by more than half. When the boots are back in stock I will reorder. If I get another bad pair, I will be leaving the brand.

I love the color! They come with 2 pairs of laces. One pair is black & the other is yellow. The comfort is an issue. I'm short (4'11") and the height of the boot is probably not ideal for me. They push into my calf and it is very painful. I assume this would get better after they are broken in. Also, they are very snug around the area of the foot just behind the bridge, but again I think this issue would be resolved after they are broken in because of the stretching of the leather. The width of the bridge is nice if you have wider feet. I have noticed the sizing seems to run very large. I normally can wear a girl's size 3 up to a woman's size 5. I purchased the size 5 (obviously). Overall, I think they are made to wear well, but I personally was very disappointed in the fit.

Total thumbs down. The boots would be perfect if they were not designed for Fred Flintstone. I have wide feet, I was swimming in these. I tried a size smaller than I usually wear; the length was okay but the laces were all the way tightened and they still had wiggle room. I think the shoes would have fit me, but this was a boot shopping trip.

What happened to my old friend? - I bought a pair of 14 eyelet Docs back in 1987, when I was young and thought I was cool. I wore them for 20 years off and on. I walked out of Ground Zero on 9/11 and for 9 hours more until I got home. I had to throw them out, with a tear in my eye, because the strain had finally destroyed them. I bought a new pair, hoping to have my foot friend back, only to find that Dr. Martens were no longer made in the UK, rather they had been made in Thailand. These boots LOOK like Docs, but they are made like a $10 Rolex. Where my old Docs still had treading on the sole after 20 years, I can dent the sole of these boots with my finger. What happened to the boots that took me through HS and out of Ground Zero?

Disappointment - They look cool but they just don't seem to fit my feet! They are really uncomfortable. They feel too narrow in the toe and instep and too big in the heel. I can't even stick it out long enough to see if they break in.

Royal takeover - I have nothing but good feelings about Zappo.com. The problem I have is with the brand of shoe I bought. I have owned Dr. Martens for over 25 years. Enjoying and being comfortable, with my work it is important and I wear nothing else. However, when I received my last pair, just weeks ago, I was very disappointed. First, they were made in China, second they are not the quality of leather as my other boots, and finally they are so uncomfortable that I haven't been able to work in them. I have a lump on my leg wear they bruised me and the lump has not gone away in 3 weeks. I love Zappo.com, but won't be buying Dr. Martens unless they go back to quality materials and tradition.

The made in China fit is not the same as made in England - Doc Marten's have been my work shoe for 10 years at a restaurant...have enjoyed owning at least 5 pairs. But this one made in China is uncomfortable from the start and is abrasive at the back of the heel. Definitely won't cut it when your on your feet 7 hours. I'm in the process of returning this pair. I just have to search for another great work shoe.

I've just bought my 5th pair of Dr. Martens boots (1460)and did not manage to break them in. I was feeling something really strange with them, really uncomfortable. Something really changed... Is it because it's made in China, now? (by the way, the price we pay hasn't decreased).

Brands I'd also recommend: UK made ones

You're better off with a cheap pair of boots - ...I just bought this boot recently and to my dismay I realized that it no longer says "Made in England" on the sole of the boot. It seems that Dr. Marten has moved all production to China. I have also found that because of this change, many people seem to be put off by the quality of the boot...

I have been wearing this style of boot since the early 80's (oh yes, still a diehard Punk at heart). This is my 4 pair, the first two wore beautifully. Broke in easy, lasted a long time and were very comfy! However, this last pair I bought in 2003 was a waste of money and time. I have had the hardest time breaking them in. They are uncomfortable, my feet hurt in them and the laces break too easily now. I don't know what Doc's did. I guess they sold out to the Fashion Trends but they are NOT what they used to be. So I switched to Caterpillars. Much more bang for the buck, more comfy, don't need to break them in and my feet don't hurt!

These shoes are perfect for rainy weather. They do take a while to break in so I recommend putting a tennis ball inside each shoe for a night or two for the leather to stretch. Once they're broken in they are much more comfortable than they seem.

Where do I begin with one of the most famous and classic boots of all time? I'm happy to say that these are my third pair going, and my first Made in England pair - I got the cherry red (now called oxblood). And I'm completely happy so far. True, you do begin with a bit of hell as you need to break them in, but that's a trademark quality of, well, quality leather boots. But then, you're rewarded afterwards with not just heaven, but heaven for a lifetime. Two years down the road, the toes have very visible creases already (I'm a very abusive wearer, apparently, and I always tend to tiptoe or bend my feet), but zero signs of deterioration, and the promised heaven of comfort. Not only are they tough and comfortable, they're really handsome and timeless-looking, but with a modern twist, owing to its dark red color rather than the more traditional brown. Unlike many Docs fans out there, I wear mine mostly with the pants down, as I reserve them for rather smarter get-ups (for purely casual, I turn to my Timberland or Caterpillar classic boots), but I have also tried wearing them with skinny jeans either rolled up or tucked in, or with shorts, with equally happy results. My only complaint, which I notice has happened to ALL the 1460s I've owned, is that the laces on the right boot tend to get undone, even with the most proper of lacing. I've remedied this by lacing them non-traditionally - I lace up to just the 6th or 7th eye up, wrap them around the back of the boot, then just do a double knot. Not only is it more secure for me, it's a versatile look I can rock regardless of how I wear them. I did say that these are made in England, which is perceived as being of superior quality to made in China - so far, none of my MIC boots have failed me, so I can't speak about it, though I DO feel the boots are a lot less flimsy. As such, while it's been two years, I expect two and twenty more of long-lasting use - and by then, I'll replace them with yet another pair. Perhaps a black one that time.

Finally writing this review 7 years after buying them. Great boots and they look better with time. I wear them daily as a motorcycle commuter and they've held up well. Highly recommend these boots!

My second pair of docs! They are great, fit true to size, comfortable to wear even though the insoles are flat (I have flat feet though). I bought the sea blue ones and the colour is the best! It's a really cool teal that fades to black at the toe. The leather is soft and comfortable right out of the box. I look forward to wearing these for a long time!

Still my favorite stompy boots! I did put my own insoles in for arch support, which there was plenty of room for and their insoles are removable, yay. These seem like the same Docs as last time I bought them, so I have to disagree with some of the other reviewers on that.

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.
