Best Darn Boot Ever - This is the second pair of these that I have owned, the last pair I had for almost 9 years, and I wore them all the time. These boots can be a bit difficult to break in, but once you do the fit it perfect.

They are now made in China. I do not mind spending the extra money to get quality, but if they are going to charge full hit (100-plus) and have them made in China instead of England then they can keep them and I will spend a little more money and buy American. No slam on the product itself or Zappos. The 1460's that I ordered looked and felt just like every other set I have owned, except for the made in China label. The service I received from the fine people at Zappos was absolutely first rate. If I am going to spend the big bucks I will go with an American manufacturer.

Doc Martens review - I've been wearing Doc Martens since 1997, and what can I say? The classic, stylish boot. My only complaint is that the last pair of Docs I purchased were UK size 10.5, but I could not find them in this size online (on various sites). The UK size 11 still seem to be OK, but this is my only real complant.

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.

I've been a die hard Docs owner for over a decade and these boots are definitely not the same ones my feet have known and loved. The first pair ordered were almost a full size too small, and the quality is generally terrible - they are no longer made in England at all, but are instead made in China! The feel, the quality, and the fit are all different. Zappos was great: exchanged the smaller pair for the right size, paid for return shipping and overnighted the new ones. These are definitely the last pair of Docs I'll be spending money on, but I'd definitely buy from Zappos again.

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.

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!

I love these boots! I'm wearing these boots as I write this. They've got it all, comfort and style. What I like best is that they look good with casual office wear, with jeans, or in a club; very versatile. And the best part is the character you get to add to them!

Comfy, clunky - These were my first pair of Docs ever, and they turned out very comfy. I wear them all the time, but one does have to get used to some extra room inside the shoe. Don't buy if you want tight boots. Service was awesome, very fast!

I Love Zappos - True to fit and width. I have had my boots now for over six years. I wear them many days at a time in bad weather (2 degrees and much warmth I may add) hot weather and wet. The leather is of the finest quality and can keep it looking nice with much ease! I like mine to look nice all the time. This is the only type of boot that has held up to my needs. I also have wore them in horrible weather condtions, and attend many car shows that fluids end up all over my boots. What a nightmare for me, but they ALWAYS clean up nice and look like new. Truly amazing indeed. As you know the leather needs to be broken in (this was with ease for me, felt great) and they feel so wonderful. No rubbing marks or sore feet can walk forever and have in them. Just wish I had found the Zappos site sooner. The Zappos price is so much better here! I had to pay an un-godly mall price for these boots. I sure don't regert it, but I am so thankful I found Zappos now. I have placed an order for two pairs of boots (DM's and UGGS) at Zappos, I have to wait and let you know how I love the new itmes I am waiting for. PS I am an older lady that has an edgy look (Rock/Punk) and I lace my boots up too cool so I can just slip them on. I tie the inside shoeslaces so no knots or ties show. This also made them (I get a little lazy about doing the laces all the time) slip on. Can't wait to order these in red. Thank you and peace to all.

Thats why they call them airware - I love this boot. It was comfortable from the time I put it on. I didn't experience the "new boot" break in period. My feet never ached like they sometimes do the first few days. Thank you Zappos! I will never buy another shoe any where else, fast friendly service.

The Best Shoes I Have Ever Owned, PERIOD! I have owned a pair for one year. Not only are they extremely comfortable, they incite compliments from everyone, including my "hip, in the know" young adult children. I saw a similar pair on the feet of Johnny Depp once. His looked like they never left his feet given how worn the uppers were. I figured, if they're good enough for Mr. Depp, they're good enough for me!

Best boot or shoes in the world - I got my first pair of Dr. Martens when I was 15!. I still wear them! They have a few holes, but they still do well in the pits. I just got my new pair and I'm 30. Take care of them and they take care of you!

The best ever - I love these shoes. I bought my first pair of "docs" in 1995 and they lasted me until 2000, they always were very comfortable and they got a heck of alot of wear and tear! Well worth the money, they will outlast any shoe!

Always and Forever - This is by far the best boot I have ever worn. I had a pair for five years before I finally wore a hole in them and needed to buy my new pair from Zappos. I still have the old ones for when I go to concerts and in mosh pits, they hold up great. I also use them for when I know I'll be doing something where they might get further damamge. They never leak, never poke or bother my feet and I dread the thought of five more years down the road when I need to buy a new pair again and they don't make them anymore. Any other boot I have worn has had nothing on these, the only thing more comfortable are my moccasins. I hope I die before I have to live knowing that another great thing that this world had is gone.

I gave these as a gift. My boyfriend did say that felt really narrow but he thinks they will loosen up. I bought a pair he didn't like originally from Zappos so I had to send them back and order a different pair. FREE shipping and returns made it possible to get the right shoe without additional cost.

Dr. Martens 1460 Series - Actually this is a present for my husband for Christmas. However, he currently owns the exact pair and absoulutley loves them. As for my experience with Zappos.com, it was a pleasure to do buisness with them. Your turn around time is fantastic and you definitely will have a customer for life. Keep up the great work.
