I needed these for a work trip, where steel toes were mandatory. As I'm unlikely to need them again for a long long time, I decided to go for something that would also work well with a Chicago winter, and I just liked the look of these. So I was even happier when I tried them and they were actually really comfy. You don't notice the heavy toe at all and there is padding around the ankle which helps keep you warm as well as avoiding chafing. A good purchase, even if I don't plan on visiting any more mines!

As some of the other reviews state, these boots take a couple weeks to break in. When you get them, you'll be "Awwww, pretty boot!", but when you put them on, they'll be snug over the top of your foot and you'll be all "Pretty boot hurt foot. Bad boot. Bad." (Do that in a Hulk voice for effect.) But relax. Wear them for a few days and that snugness will ease off. It won't be long before your Hulk voice goes away and you're back to "Awwww, pretty boot!" The next thing you'll notice is that there is little to no arch support. Read the other reviews, and you'll see people comment about this. Don't be like me, trust them. Take their advice and buy different inserts for your pretty boots. Sadly, that's where my experience ends with these boots. I've only had them for a couple weeks and the sole of the right boot is starting to separate from the rest of the boot. Here's the rub: I've only been walking around in these. No hard work or trudging through chemicals or toxic waste (Hmmm, maybe I should've done that to turn into the Hulk?). You know, just regular walking. Now you might think, maybe the boots are rebelling because they're not being used for "work," but I am wearing them at work (even if that involves standing at my desk writing about stuff and hacking code), and there's no good reason why a boot made by a reputable brand would do this to me, right? It's not me, it's them. They just don't love me, and thanks to Zappos return policy, I'm able to send this shifty pair of tight-at-first-but-Awwww-pretty boots back for a different pair. And no, I'm not getting another pair of these in the hopes that the next pair of pretty boots will treat me better. Will want put under pillow at night for snuggles and cream cheese. So stay tuned, people. The new boots arrive tomorrow while the once pretty boots have been put in a corner to think about what they've done.

These are great boots! They took about a week and a half to really break in but now they are incredibly comfortable, although I did replace the stock insole with a gel insole (the stock insole is worthless, but new ones are cheap) nothing else was necessary. I have only had them for a couple of months so I cannot really speak to durability, but they are still perfect so far.

The absolute best steel toe boots I've ever purchased. 14 wide is hard to find that actually fit. I bought Red Wings and Timberlands both were very uncomfortable. Docs have been awesome! Have worn them for 2 months.

Zappos is awesome! I've never had better service! I ordered my boots on Tuesday evening and had them on Saturday! I was told to order a size smaller, from other happy customers and they were right! I normally take a size 11 and ordered a 10 instead. Perfect fit, I knew I was going to get a great pair of boots, but the excellent service took me by surprise. I ordered another pair of Doc's - same great service, excellent product! Zappos has my business for life!

I've tried other Dr. Marten boots in the past and like the others these are made to last. Love the wide toe area and they break in fairly quickly. The boots are heavy, but are very well made.

This is the third pair I have bought. They are a bit stiff at first, but stretch a lot once you have broken them in. That being said it is best to by a size that is snug and not loose. Good over-all work boot.

I originally bought the regular width, which was too narrow particularly at the steel toe. No hassel exchange for the wide width, which fit perfectly.

These are good, solid boots and maybe a little too solid. I had trouble breaking them in and had to have them stretched. They do seem on the small side, go 1/2 or full size larger than normal. The will get tight as your feet swell during the day, and won't have a lot of give. A good pair of boot insoles will help, too and no boot has enough cushioning!

These boots are true performers! I purchased a pair December 2009, I wore them to work everyday until February 12, 2011, and trust me I am not easy on my work boots. They quickly broke in and stayed comfortable through the entire time I wore them. The only reason I am getting a new pair is because I cut a hole in the leather upper and now my sock gets wet, otherwise I would still be wearing them!

I love these boots! Mostly use for riding my motorcycle. The padded ankle gives a bit more stability and comfort in that area. As with most wellingtons they can be tough to pull on, but that gives them a nice fit.

These boots are great! I purchased these boots for my husband (these look hot on him unlike his other work boots he wears). He is constantly working around heavy equipment. I wanted him to have a steel toe boot for protection, but something that looks good at the same time. I am so glad I chose these! The brown is a very nice color and he keeps raving how comfortable they are and loves the look. I am very happy with the purchase! And as if the boot isn't wonderful enough, Zappos is simply amazing! They must have some kind of teletransportation device, I swear. I ordered them at lunchtime on Monday and tripped over the box leaving my house Tuesday afternoon. I bet it was under 24 hours. And it's free shipping! It blows my mind! As always, great service and will never order shoes online unless it's from Zappos!

Love them! Got them just before a snowstorm, and they are great to have. Hardly any break in time. The only thing that actually needed breaking in was the upper on the left boot, it was a little bit tight, but broke in in about three days. My wife loves them, they look great, feel great, and are a great boot.

These boots are built very well they are well worth the money. My husband had these on riding a motorcycle to work he was in an accident his feet got run over by a 18 wheeler and believe it or not his feet only got bruised very badly nothing broken. The steel toes saved his feet. I would highly recommend these boots, they are great. Thank you Zappos!

These are a killer boots! They were sort of hard in the beginning and very tight for the top of my feet but gradually and quickly they molded to the right shape. I cannot be happier with them!

This is my second pair of these boots. The first pair had the leather stripped off the steel toe -- and I have no idea how it happened! I'm not tossing out the old boots, but they have been reserved for muddy job use. I really like these boots for motorcycle riding. They are day long comfortable once broken in, look great and stand up to the weather. And with the Doc Martens sole, they're even comfortable for walking in, too. When my old boots became too disreputable to wear in public, I just used the size off of them and ordered up my new boots. They're true to size and just fit.

I work Offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and slip-on boots are the way to go. I have also owned Caterpillar slip-ons. Slip-ons take some getting used to, but overall the comfort is superior. I think they weigh a little more, but I never looked at the numbers. While my Dr Martens are more comfortable, I think they are heavier than the Cats. I can't say enough about the shipping. I ordered the boots Saturday afternoon while driving and they arrived Monday morning!

Great shoe - I have been wearing Dr. Martens boots for about 11 years. When they get broken in they are very comfortable. I bought these for the convenience of not tying. Have worn these boots almost every day since I received them in the mail. Would love to have a pair without the steel toe.

Great Boots - I have worn these boots 10 hrs. a day 4 days a week for almost 2 yrs. I'm on my feet most of the time on cement and work with chemicals. They have outlasted any other brand I have worn. I'm going to order another pair. Great boots!

Dr. Martens - great brand/Zappos - great service - I ordered the Gaucho Volcano, even though I was afraid they were going to be a reddish-brown hue from the picture. What a surprise... they were a beautiful, even dark chocolate brown. Easy to put on right out of the box. Fit was perfect after about a week of break-in and the padded ankles are a beautiful design. These boots aren't made for walking or hiking with the steel toes... but will last forever at work for me. And Docs are one of the few decent men’s boots that offer smaller sizes for women that actually fit well. Zappos shipped them to me in record time all the way to Hawaii. Maybe 3 days from order? Great boots. Great service!
