The Black Nappa 1460W is the perfect Doc! The 1460 is too wide and these will be perfect once broken in. This is my second pair of Nappa docs, and they break in much faster than the smooth leather and are more comfy straight out of the box. The seam attaching the tongue pushes on the upper foot until broken in, but it will get looser and they will mold to your foot like all good leather. I'm usually a size 10.5-11 in boots, but the UK 8 is perfect. I also own the 1460 Nappa and the UK 8 in that style is longer and wider than these. I feel these are much more "shaped" for a woman's foot than the 1460. Definitely size down if you're between sizes, and they will stretch and mold to fit your foot with a little wear. I think someone with a wide foot should opt for the original 1460 because these are average width. My feet were swimming in the 1460, and they gave me more of a clown feet vibe. These are very attractive, slimmer cut for a female or narrow male foot, and the leather is sumptuous. If you're a female with an average width foot and can't decide which docs to buy, go with these! They look great with shorts, jeans, leggings and dresses, these boots are pure biker/rocker chick and bad to the bone. :)

These are the worst boots ever made. A total disappointment. The seam at the toe and heel rubbed terribly as if they were made out of cardboard.

I love the floral print on these and the canvas is very sturdy. There are alternate pink satin laces in the box if you want to switch those out with the black. My foot is slightly narrower than average, which could be why my heel moves around quite a bit in the boot (and loose shoes drive me crazy). I'm going to have to wear these with extra thick socks to stop the rubbing. I can tell that one size down would be too small, so I'm going to keep these and just deal with the looseness since I like them so much.

These Docs are adorable; I purchased them in the Black Floral Patent. They do, however, take about a good two weeks to wear in. Also, it's very easy for the patent to rub off, which is supremely disappointing considering they're a more expensive boot with a well established brand name. For the most part, the arch support is very minimal in these boots. I have very high arches, but was able to purchase inserts and can wear them easily for most of the day. I don't regret my purchase of these boots and still wear them all the time, I just wish I knew before I bought them that they require more maintenance and looking after than would be expected of any other kind of boot such as these due to how careful you have to be to not scratch the patent; you can't do any kind of actual work in these. (Which I suppose, most people in floral boots won't be too worried about.)

Just like the traditional 1460, only better! These are wonderful boots, soft and comfortable, and you have to love the flowers! I can't think of anything bad to say, buy them you will love them!

Very disappointed in the Victorian flower-print version of these. The material is so stiff and inflexible that it cut into my instep, and also created terrible blisters on my heels. I imagine the leather version of these is a better product, but the "woven canvas" is awful, and I would not recommend them to anyone. Not a good non-leather option.

I ordered these in "Black Vintage Rose Softy T." They are beautiful! They are so stylish and like others have mentioned here they aren't clunky. I am a size 7 but have an extremely narrow foot. I ordered a UK size 5 (US 7) and I feel like they fit me correctly but I'm going to wear them around the house a bit to make sure. Also, make sure you wear some pretty thick socks. I have plenty of toe room but my heel rubs against the back of the shoe. I put on some semi thick socks and the problem was solved. This is my first pair of Dr. Martens so I'm not used to the feel yet. Still, nothing will make me part with these. They're just that adorable.

I've been wanting Docs for years, but thought that with my high arches and narrow feet I couldn't wear them. After reading reviews that the 1460w was better suited for a woman's foot, I ordered the purple 1460w. After three days of wearing an hour each day, they were completely broken in! I added some Dr Scholl tricomfort inserts which provide superb arch and heel support. Love! Now I need the black nappa and cherry red!

The Doc Martens are awesome! They are easy to break in and they look great on. They do run big though: normally I wear an 8 1/2 and since I heard they ran big, I ordered an 8. Well the 8 is little big. Half sizes would be great. Overall though they are great boots - even guys comment on how cool they are on.

These 1460 W's are a great pair of standout boots! I think I'll get a lot more wear out of them come fall/winter. Considering the price, they are definitely a purchase for those who already own a black pair (Dr Martens or otherwise). They took some breaking in, maybe 2-4 wears of a good amount of walking. Regardless of those few caveats, these boots will be a go to for me for years to come, built beautifully inside and out!

In 1994 I bought my first pair of Dr Martens at a shop in Covent Garden in London (UK). Old school I know! They were cherry red and man they were uncomfortable - hard on the soles of my feet. They took forever to break in but I adored them because they were rugged and lasted forever. These just arrived and they're squishy and comfy. The AirWair makes such a big difference. I wear size 7.5 US and ordered UK 5 and they fit perfectly (length and width-wise) with regular socks. If I wore thick winter socks, they'd feel a bit too snug. I don't feel the need to break them in at all! So pleased. They rock!

These boots are super cute but sadly super stiff. The tongue is hard and doesn't stay in the middle. My ankles were very uncomfortable. Order 1/2 size down.

Comfy boot, however the patent leather version (I got purple), requires some breaking in. It's a nice fitting boot however, and it's comfy and a little bit more feminine than your normal Doc. You will have to remember to wear tall socks though, in order to avoid rubbing (ankle socks will mean rubbing on the heel), especially until you've gotten them broken in.

Love these! I usually wear a women's US 8 and they are a little loose but good for wearing thick socks with. The first day they were a little uncomfortable but broke in quickly. I have even been wearing them in the rain and they have been great for that. Love the way they look and feel!

Very light! Was very surprised about it. I'm used to the leather ones. Adorable boot, lovely grey! Goes with everything. I'm an 8 1/2 and a 6 UK fits perfect. Still breaking them in. Haven't walked a lot so don't know how comfy they are. They look amazing though!

These boots are pretty cool. The breaking in stage was a bit painful so since I got these a bit large, I just wore thick socks! I'm the only girl in school with these and I get compliments everywhere I go.

I opted for the Black w/ Victorian Flowers and I LOVE THEM. I'm usually an 8 1/2 and the US 8 fit me just right. I have very flat feet and the base of the tongue still bit into the top of my foot a bit during the first day of breaking in, but it's getting more and more flexible each day. I have yet to try these in inclement weather, but for everyday work (8 hours on my feet on the sales floor) I think they'll be fantastic. And there's no question that they look absolutely amazing. They come with both plain black laces AND pink ribbon laces!

I got these in hot pink, and as expected they have a long road to travel in terms of comfort. I normally wouldn't keep a boot that's uncomfortable except I know from experience that these will ultimately become some of the most comfortable shoes I own. As with all Docs, you should order a smaller size than you normally are. In other shoes i'm a 6.5, sometimes a 7. I got the UK 4 (US 6) and they are just right.

I ordered these boots to wear outside I'm the bad weather. I cannot believe how comfortable they are and how well made they are. They do take a little breaking in but after a week I can wear them all day without any problem. I would recommend them to everyone, the price is well worth the value.

Very cute! Just note that these Victorian floral docs are made of canvas, not leather - something I didn't catch before I purchased. Unfortunately I feel the price is a bit steep for a canvas shoe so it's going back.

Cuter in person than in photo. I wear a size 8 1/2 in open toe shoes and almost always a 9 in boots. I ordered a size 8 and a 9 to make sure I got the right fit. The 8 fit perfectly! I would recommend going 1/2 size down from true size or full size down from regular boot size. These are a bit stiff until broken in but not uncomfortable.

I highly recommend Zappos.com!!! Fantastic selections and styles! I was looking for a pair of boots for a Christmas gift, and found them immediately! Zappos had a better selection of the brand that I was looking for than the maker of the boot did! The site was easy to navigate, and the prices are great! I received my order immediately, love the free shipping, and of all my holiday shopping, Zappos was completely reliable, and I plan on shopping at Zappos again! Thank you, Zappos!
