Got these because they're supposed to be great quality, cool shoes, comfortable etc. They are definitely cool, and of average comfort, though it did take a good month of wearing band-aids on my ankles to break them in. I agree with the other reviewers in that they aren't great quality. The leather is painted, not dyed, so in the first week of wear, a patch of the paint scraped off to reveal the tan leather underneath. It looks like mud on the shoe. I am now ~8 months into wearing them and they continue to develop cracks around the crease from walking. Which also open to reveal mud-colored bare leather. I'm all for distressed looking docs, but these uppers aren't getting distressed from wear: they're disintegrating. They still look cool, but I can tell that another week of wear will see a crack straight through to a hole. On sizing: I went with a size UK 4 (US 6) even though I usually wear a US 7, per the advice of other reviews to size down, and they fit.

Felt a little large, but Doc Martens tend to feel that way, and I've been cursed with narrow feet. Thick socks ought to do the trick. Look great, a little tough to break in. Glad I finally purchased these.

I love Docs and I have many pair. I ordered these in Cherry Red Smooth in January 2005. Still love them today. Unfortunately, they are still as uncomfortable today as they were when I bought them. The leather is very stiff. I used to get blisters on my heels every time I wore them. Now, I just remember to put band-aids on before I wear these Docs.

I was so excited to get these in the mail and sadly they are way too large. I wear a US9 so I ordered a UK7 but they were at least a full size to big. I will be sending them back. Unfortunately I will have to get another style since I can't find the ones I would like in my size, but that's okay because zappos makes it easy and all doc martins look good. I really wanted to give it 5 overall stars but since it's not true to fit I can't.

Well, I chose one size down and found out that it fits small. So I suggest that you should choose your normal size.

Definitely easier to break in than my original Docs, but the quality isn't the same as I remember, hopefully they'll last awhile. I've had my other pain 11 years, but I wanted something without a steel toe.

These boots run large. I'm a US 10.5 and got these in a US 10 and they're just about right. They're roomy but not loose. I recommend thick socks and guessing a size low if you're a half size. Break-in was effortless. I just wore them normally and did a lot of walking and after three days they felt fine. The only problem (if you drive a manual) is a little chafing on my clutch ankle, but that was gone after a week or two. The leather is good, but not the great quality of the old English-made DMs. They get softer with some elbow grease and Wonder Balsam. The semigloss greasy leather looks great and is water-resistant.

A lot has been said how how these aren't as good as when the company was English (I suppose the same was said by the Germans when production moved to the UK). But at this price you're not going to be able to buy a pair of English shoes (or even a pair of Red Wings), now are you? What you are buying is a pair of boots with a great oil resistant/non-slip sole and a leather upper that, yes is thin and treated to the point of being synthetic, but has proven to me to be very resistant against scratching/abrasion. I also found the fit to be longer and wider than normal, but not quite the full 1/2 size larger as stated by other reviewers. Probably bigger enough to accommodate an extra thick pair of socks in the Winter, but not enough that a smaller size would work better. Maybe one day I'll ask Santa for a pair of Solovairs, but for now these are proving to be a good pair of motorcycle boots.

I ordered these for my husband at his request. He normally wears a 9.5 US. The UK 9 was definitely too big for him but the UK 8 seems a bit tight. His toes are right at the edge of the boot. He also says the boots are a bit painful to wear for more than about an hour. I have encouraged him to break them in since they're fairly soft leather but I don't really think he's going to. (I think he might if he paid for them himself!) He's generally tender-footed; so I think a person more willing to deal with a break-in period would be happy with these boots. As always Zappos service is excellent.

I love this style of boot, but wasn\'t sure what size to order since it was in UK sizes. Normally I wear an 8 1/2 wide, so after reading the reviews I decided to try the 1460 UK 6. The width was very comfortable in my toe area. However, the boots were too big in the heel area. Worried about comfort and blisters, I finally decided to return them. I found they make a 1460 W for women. Hopefully a womens size will be better in the heel, but still wide for the widest part of my feet. Guess I will try a UK 6 again and see how it goes.

These shoes are very stylish and fashionable. They look good if you have joggings or skinny jeans that you tuck inside of them. But the shiny stuff that is on the shoe will get scuffed and scratch. But don't worry Dr. Martens makes a patent leather spray that fixes it.

These boots are nowhere as shiny or as marbled red as the photo. They arrived looking like a darker oxblood color rather than red, near black. On the upside, they show red on creases and scratches. Sizewise, they are seriously wider than expected. I bought the proprietary insoles and still had to put in my old orthotics and wear heavy hiking socks. Not a bad boot, will be great in winter.

The fit and style were fine. The Chinese made DM 1460s felt cheap. The leather was thin with no lining or the kind of attention to detail you'd expect from Docs. I sent them right back. In my opinion they were not worth the price being charged.

These did not look at all like the picture - harder leather, no suppleness to it. They were also HUGE even for someone like me that often wears DMs. Ordering a full size smaller than usual, and in a different material.

These are not the same Dr. Martins that they use to be. My feet hurt so much that I cannot wait to take them off. I stopped wearing them. I now have very expensive paper weights. Wearing Rockports for comfort. I miss the old Dr. Marts. Must have bought 15 pairs over the last 20 years. Never again.

Very disappointed with this purchase. I ordered my standard size 12US/UK11, 1460 black smooth finish. I also have a different style of 3 hole docs the same size 12. Once I received the boots, first thing I did was to put in inserts. I ordered inserts as well, after reading reviews here. Then I tried to put them on, and I couldn't even get my foot in with them completely unlaced!! So I proceeded to pull out the insert, and double check that I'm not stacking it on top of a factory one. Nope, just as I received them, no insert (which is what I expected). I next tried putting them on without any insert, and the fit is VERY tight along the top of my foot were the laces start. This of course also means that it is squeezing the sides of my foot as well, along with coming a little to narrow in the toes. I have average size width for my shoe size, and never had a problem before. Sadly, they feel just about right in the length, and a little loose in the heel. That said, I feel that going another size up might give me some room in width (I'd hope), but then to long in length. I don't understand anyone who says they run big, as it's just the opposite (how heck does anyone use inserts?). All in all, I'm probably going to return them. Sad, because they are a good looking boot and I was looking forward to getting them. Still thinking it's weird at how tight they fit...but what can you do. Zappos was great, and even received my order early, so no issue there. I'll order from this site again, just never another pair of docs. These are getting returned in a few days when I have a chance.

Comfortable? Yes. Durable? Negative. I'm on my feet for fifty to sixty hours a week in food service, and I beat on shoes. Asides from general wear and tear, everything from bleach to boiling soup gets splashed on them. Being the cheapskate that I am, I've been spending thirty bucks at Walmart or Payless every three or four months for shoes that wear out quickly, and hurt your feet along the way. I was getting tired of this after a few years, and decided to spend some cash on a "good" pair of shoes. I had a pair of 1460s way back when, and they took everything I could give them for five or six years. Good boots. Haven't even thought about Dr. Martens in ages, when I came across them on here and figured, "What the hell, seems like a good investment." I spent more on boots that came with the cheapest, barely-there insoles imaginable. That being said, once I bought some gel inserts and broke them in, they wore like a dream. I mean they were borderline superb. The slip resistance is above average, too. After having them about four months, the leather (which is a lot thinner and flimsier than I recollect) began to wear in the way that only the cheapest leather does, and finally it began to crack. This after having mink oiled them several times, cleaning them as often as possible, and conditioning them once a week. These things look like a marine's boots who just got back from two years of combat. Awful. I still wear them, and they're still like walking on air, but now the leather has this odd pattern of creases and ridges, and there are several small tears in it. They look bad. I mean, you spend that kind of money on footwear, you'd expect them to look halfway presentable, or, at the very least, not have the leather tear. Didn't mean to write a novel here, but this makes me upset. Maybe I'll give Wolverine or Timberland a shot next.

If you want the old Docs, you have to buy the vintage line. They are still made in England and are much better quality than the cheaper models which are now made in various Asian countries. Of course, they are also more expensive. Don't buy the mass produced Asian models expecting them to equal the "vintage" quality.

I think the quality of leather varies from boot style to boot style. I owned my first pair about 25 years ago and they were fine after having to break them in for a couple of weeks. I never took them off and wore them everywhere with most everything. Eventually they cracked on the bottom from being so worn out. then I bought an identical pair 10 years ago and they were terrible. they were labeled leather, but I still think they are not. They are at the bottom of my closet, hardest leather ever and money wasted. Now a month ago I bought a pair of "Aimille" boots in the brown and I love them. The softest leather and really nice and even a bit on the feminine side. I'm returning them for a smaller size, but that's the only thing wrong. The leather is fine and soft and no breaking in time needed.

Unfortunately the reviews highlighting the drop in quality of Dr. Marten's are accurate. I purchased a pair of 1460 11 years ago when I was in high school, wore those boots everywhere and loved them. In fact I recently uncovered that old pair in a box, which after discovering they no longer fit, prompted my new purchase. The leather used in their new boots is of very low quality and after only 3 months of wear has blistered and creased on every surface of the boot. Quality boots will crease in the toe, on the sides of the uppers; where the leather bends repeatedly. But these basically look like a leather shoe version of a person with goosebumps, and no amount of boot oil (neatsfoot oil) or LP obenauf's will solve it. However, those 11 year old Dr. Martens (that were hardly even cared for correctly by foolish high school kid) still look fantastic. Go figure.

Very cool shoes. Very cheaply made. They fit fairly well on the lower foot, but way too loose in the shaft (couldn't even lace them up properly). Thin plastic feeling leather, NO arch support. Returning these to save for a Good pair of boots. I guess you get what you pay for. For shame Dr. Martens, for shame.

Buy Solovair! Do not buy these plastic pieces of junk. Solovair shoes are amazing, and they are even better quality than I remember Docs being. From what I understand, they made the soles at the Solovair factory, but stamped them as Docs. The Solovair leather is supple and real!

At first glance, these boots are great. They're comfortable and the shine is durable. The arch support is mediocre and you may want to get a slightly (1/2 size) larger boot in order to include a better insole. What isn't durable is the leather, which other commenters have noted. Within 8 months of purchase, I experienced cracked leather on the outsides of the toe caps, and the inside heel sheared from the sole of one boot. Since these were used primarily for commuting, I am disappointed with what appears to be poor quality leather in conditions that were hardly demanding. Shoe trees may have helped the toes by cutting down creasing but there's no excuse for the leather to come apart at the heel.

I am astonished and amazed at Dr. Marten's ability to deform leather into such a cheap, rubberized-vinyl substance. I complained years ago about the cardboard quality of newer, non-English made Docs, but I am now reconsidering - the baloney used to make these new ones is incredibly worse. I would ask Zappos for a refund if I hadn't already worn off the thin and 'fine' finish in only two days of wear. If you appreciate old Docs, you will be more satisfied with something else. Would gladly pay more for the quality of old Doc Martens.
