Great boot! Good fit...order 1/2 size smaller than your normal size. Break-in time is a little longer than usual, but once done, extremely comfortable! Use a good boot oil, I recommend Dr. Martens brand, to keep leather and seams soft during break-in and for ongoing protection. You're going to love this boot.

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.

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 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.

These were a gift for my husband. I ordered the Police boots and these 1460's for him to choose from. These have a pad whereas the police boots do not even though the description says they do. These 1460's were soft and comfortable right out of the box. They are warm and look really sharp.

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.

They're Docs. They're classic and will last forever. They do run a little big. My husband is a 9.5 and I ordered the 10. He just wears them with heavy socks and that seems to work.

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.

I agree with the reviewer who said this boot looked like something out of Walmart. The leather looked like vinyl, felt like vinyl and behaved like vinyl. They felt clunky when I tried them on because there was no give in the leather. These Chinese made boots are at a low price point, but they are not the same English made boots we wore in the '90s. I am one who would rather pay a higher price for quality than a lower price for a substandard product.

There is terrible material on the back of the heel, it breaks apart, balls up, and rolls up creating a hot spot on the heel and wore out in two weeks. I will be looking into the warranty.

If you want the old Dr. Martens you used to know and love, you need to buy the Vintage style ones only offered through Dr. Martens. These boots offered at Zappos are made in China, not England. That is why they suck.

Dr. Martens used to be made in England. Those where the finest shoes with the best material. I still have a pair purchased in the late 90's. They are well worn but still in great shape. The new Dr. Martens are made in China. The material used is awful. They do not wear well, and the fit is nothing like the old. I am said to say I will no longer be buying this brand. I would have paid twice the price for the old quality and craftsmanship.

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.

These boots are amazing. I have wanted them for years, and never got the balls to see if I could pull them off. Now I never want to take them off! They are comfortable as all getout, and they look amazing. Keep them clean, watch them become your own boots that no one else could ever claim.

I have always wanted an old school pair of Docs and this is it. They are comfortable as always and fit perfectly. The classic black leather goes well with jeans or dress pants. Dress up and still add a touch of coolness to your style. Remember to order up a size because they are marked in U.K. Sizes.

My old Doc Martens are on their last leg, I have owned them about 6 years now and ride my motorcycle with them a lot. I just ordered a new pair and holy moley, they have changed! AND not for the better. I read a review about how cheaply made they are now, but ignored it as you will always have somebody not happy with a product, but he was spot-on. They feel very cheap and the leather is paper-thin. Not sure what happened here, but PLEASE go back to the old way you guys used to make this boot, because back then it was a rock-solid boot which I had no problem paying a higher price. But these are very cheaply made compared to my old ones! Do not buy this boot until they change their leather! Very disappointed.....

Had a pair of Docs for about 5 years, every day to work wore them hunting, out to dinner. Great boots, still in decent shape but liners starting to fall apart and time for some new ones for work, since work is business casual. I ordered these and what junk, no support the uppers were flimsy and totally not worth this boot price tag. Needless to say wore them to one side of the house and back, put back into box and sent back for a refund. So I said, okay maybe it's just the particular style. Went to the store and they were all junk for the most part. Don't waste your money on Docs, I got some Irish Setters for the same price and are twice the quality.

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

Love these boots, I learned from my last pair that a thick pair of socks help "the break in period." I've worn them for a week and they are very comfortable. Hopefully they will last like my last pair (13 years). I had a bad back before I started wearing Dr. Marten's. I haven't had any back pain for 13 years. So to me, they are worth every penny.

I absolutely love these boots. I was concerned about the supposedly "heavy" leather of this model, but it's very supple, and in fact, required no breaking in to be comfortable at all. The soles are awesome - light, moderate arch support, and very comfortable when on your feet for long periods. Size wise, I'd seen reviews saying they run a little small, so I tried on some other Docs locally before ordering. I sometimes wear a 44 in EU sizes, but in most Docs, including these, 43 is a perfect fit. I'm done with trying to economize with off brand shoes and boots, the comfort and fit is well worth a few dollars more.

I am so pleased with this shoe. In an effort to save money I had purchased other pairs of combat boots but ended up returning them because mothing can compare to Dr. Martens. They are worth every penny, and you will wear them to shreds. They give instant street-cred to any outfit, and just make every piece of clothing more legit. You will not regret buying these.

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.
