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 have very high arches so I always need to use inserts in Doc Martens. These fit well and look great, but the weather is a bit stiff so the first few wearing's made my ankles sore. Now that they are starting to break in they are fine. I could have chosen a different style to get some soft or leather but this was the color that I really wanted.

These shoes are glorious and my teen self is so, so jealous of my disposable income-earning 30something self. I recommend ordering a half size up than you would wear in tennis shoes!

LOVE these boots! I'm so happy with this purchase! I have slightly wide and slightly chubby feet, so I was worried that these boots would be too narrow (since they're the narrower version of the 1460). However, they're a good fit for me, and I'm hoping to stretch them out a teeny bit more for a little more room across the the widest part of my foot. I've needed almost no break-in period -- they were comfortable right out of the box!

Let's start by saying this Docs are fabulous. I couldn't imagine a better design. I was in s wedding and I wore these and they were great. That being said they are super uncomfortable where the tongue meets the shoe. But again they look great!

One of my biggest regrets in life, besides marrying my Ex, is donating all my Docs from 1990. it makes me so sad. but lets move on and start over! Im a perfect 6.5. i ordered a 7 and it felt like a clown shoe, so i went to the 6. the Plum/purple is gorgeous but the leather is really stiff and its going to take some time to break in. I also have the Triumphs which have very supple leather and are great for motorcycle riding, but too hot for Santa Monica, bc they are flannel lined. I see now that they have a snakeskin pattern available….. my credit card is in danger Thank you Zappos for your patience on all my purchase and returns. love you!

Awesome shoes! My only complaint is that the color is more brown with a little reddish glimmer, not "Cherry" or whatever color Zappos indicates. I thought they'd be cherry red with a brownish tint, but they're more brown than red. Tip: Order half a size larger, as they're snug and narrow (medium width is the default). I'm usually an 8 (U.S. women's), sometimes 8.5, but I ordered a 9 in these and it's just right.

I am normally a 6½ and tried on both 6 and 7. They both fit with room in the toe area but the 7 was quite roomy. The 7 is noticeably larger looking, with fatter laces. Thus, I went with the 6. They are actually pretty comfortable right off the bat!

I love this color! I have been eyeing them for a while now. I wear a US size 8 and had to size down to a US size 7, mind you, I have a black pair that are really tall that are US size 8. Not sure of they run differently because of the style or what. The exchange was a breeze though and the customer service was sincere, swift, and awesome!

What a disappointment. Hindsight being 20/20 I should have listened to the negative reviews regarding the quality of these boots. But since there seemed to be more positives than negatives, I decided to go ahead and order a pair. I was especially thrilled because they had the cherry color that reminded me of a pair of oxblood shoes that I once had. In person, these boots looks so cheap. I expected them to be like a patent type of cherry red but instead it looked like a cheap version of synthetic leather and the coloring was ridiculous. Even the leather feels super thin. I figured I would try them on since I could always exchange for a different color. Yet another disappointment. The shoe towards the bottom of the tongue cut into the top of my foot and the shoes definitely felt like they were going to need some breaking in. However, with the boot quality being what it was, I did not feel like it was worth my time or the blisters that I would most likely endure. I owned a few pairs of Docs back in the day and miss them terribly. Those were great quality shoes and the leather was real leather. It didn't look and feel like some cheap knockoff. I have to say I was shocked at the quality of these boots when I think back to what they used to be. If you used to own a pair of Docs from back in the day, you too will be yearning for those just like me. Hopefully the company will come around and improve this once great shoe.

I got a 12 and I am a 10. It does run true to size. There is not much lycra. Sometimes too much lycra makes it run small. It is not well made, but love it. Makes a 65 year old body look pretty good. Too much lycra just pushes the fat out someplace else on your body. Forget those miracle suits.

These are awesome and surprisingly hard to find. Like my many previous pairs of Docs, these are well constructed and comfortable. The patent leather is a little stiffer than regular leather and bends a little weird, but not unlike other patent leather shoes. All in all, I couldn't be happier. They rock.

These are amazing boots! The Air Wair is ridiculously comfortable. Wow. My feet are so happy! I ordered the UK 8 which is a US 10, and I normally wear 10½ (sometimes 11,) and I have wide feet and a tall arch. They fit perfectly. They were wide enough and they did not need hardly any breaking in! So I would definitely say they run a half size bigger at least. I highly recommend trying on a few sizes if you are able, as for ordering online, read the reviews for fit! If it is any help, a majority of shoes don't fit my feet. But these fit me great. So I think if you have very narrow feet these will be a bit wide for you. I needed a fun comfortable boot for the winter months. I ordered the patent floral (no longer available) and they are simply adorable. This is the first pair of Doc boots I have ever owned and they are definitely worth the price. They will last you a very long time.

Love, love, love these boots! You can dress them up or down, also very comfy with the air cushion sole! Awesome buy! I have small feet so the 5 is a bit big but I like my toes to have wiggle room.

Couldn't decide between these 1460 W [SKU: #118955] [(W) not the unisex 1460s] black nappa leather OR the matte black textured 1460s (SKU: #7192163)...until I put the former on my right and the latter on my left. Five differences: 1. Trim Stitching Right: yellow Left: black 2. Last Right: "rounded" Left: "squared", wider 3. Eyelets Right: eight (8) Left: seven (7) 4. Texture Right: Nappa Left: Textured 5. Feel Left: Stiffer Right: Softer So, I'm going to keep the 1460W black nappa leather pair and return the textured pair. Also, as an aside, Doc Martens tend to run almost a full size large. I wear a US 6 (UK 4) but ordered a US 5 (UK 3), and they fit perfectly.

i have always wanted a pair of Doc Martens and these are everything I dreamed of and more. the only problem that I'm having, (and it's not even a "problem" necessarily) is that I ordered them size 8 in women's when I usually wear a size 7, and they feel at LEAST size 8 1/2 to 9. otherwise than that, super comfy and durable. They're a wonderful purchase. I love them!
