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).

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!

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.

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.

The size is true to spec. I am a US size 10 and based on prior reviews to buy a size down as it comes oversized, I did. But I had to exchange it as it was now too small.

I got these for my boyfriend for Christmas and he loved them. Aim to get about a half size larger than what they normally wear. Also received these about 2 days after ordering. So quick and worth the purchase!

AWESOME Customer Service! I had to exchange for a different size and my boots were out of stock. Zappos let me know when they got them back in and sent me my new pair before they even got the originals back! Everyone I spoke with there were very personable and bent over backwards trying to help me.

I purchased these for my 15 year old son. He is very happy with them. It took a few days to break them in, but he wears them everyday. I like them because they are appropriate for most occasions and they can easily be cleaned. He wears an 11 in running shoes, but we sized down according to reviews and they fit.

Honestly, I've avoided most boots due to comfort issues for years now, but these break the pattern. Took very little time to break in, and now that they're soft and pliable, it's almost magical walking around in them. Even though they aren't the UK version (Mine are from Vietnam), the construction seems tight. My only note on these shoes is that I originally bought a different pair which were supposedly my size in the US (I wear a size 14US/13UK), but they were cramped and seemed a half size too small. I bought these in a 15US/14UK and though they are a bit big/loose, it's still super comfortable. Compared to the other sizing comments, I'd warn anyone who wears a 14 to buy a size up, specifically.

This is my 3rd pair of black 8-eye Docs (#1460). Love them. Fit well, seams are solid. Leather is good quality.

Normally wear a size 10.5 or 11 but these run a 1/2 size big the 10's fit me perfect. After a week of breaking in these are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned.

Hooray for Docs! Get these and you won't regret it, but be prepared for a slight break-in period (well worth it). I had a green pair about 20 years ago and the sizing and styling are still true to form. Can't go wrong as style never goes out of fashion!

Comfortable and iconic, but it's appalling that half sizes aren't available. I wear a 9.5 in all types of shoes, therefore, I needed a 9.5 in Dr. Martens. Unfortunately, U.S. 9s are too small and U.S. 10s are too large.

I didn't believe the hype and bought a pair of UK 12 (US13) since most of my other Docs (shoes and chelsea boots) fit better at that size, but these 1460s really do run large, at least all the way up there. I dance between a 12 and 13 in US shoes all the time, and for these, I ended up returning the larger pair and getting a UK 11. These needed no breaking in out of the box, perfectly comfortable from day 1. Seems that Doc Martens quality is still there.

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!)
