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 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!

Zappos is the best! I accidentally bought the unisex black smooth 1460 boot first. When they arrived, I was absolutely heartbroken seeing them and trying them on. They were huge. The toebox was too big, the width was to wide, and the boot overall just looked like a rough, men's boot. I looked like a clown. Devastated, I immediately called Zappos. The woman I got on the phone was an absolute angel! At first, I was going to just return them and order them off the Doc Martens website. However, she walked me through the site until I found these babies. (I originally thought the W stood for "wide" and not "women's") and they are beautiful. She even upgraded me to nest day shipping for free which is great because I was going to wear them to a concert the next day! I'm literally in between US size 9.5 and 10. So I went with the UK 8 and it seems great! I have some room to move around but I just wear some medium thickness socks with them and they're perfect. The nappa leather is much easier to break in so your feet don't have to get so beaten up the first few days. I highly recommend these boots and this awesome site with they're amazing customer service. Zappos rocks!

I got the victorian flowers pattern. I love these shoes!!! They were hell to break in, but now that they are they are very comfortable. It took me about two weeks to stretch them enough to wear them and then a few days of walking around to get them comfortable. I have really high arches and kind of wide feet, so your experience might be different. (My trick for stretching them was to put an old jar of bare minerals powder under the tightest part- it's the perfect size to stretch the arch and it won't compact like newspaper.) The shoes fit everywhere except the bottom of the tongue, and it was *really* tight there. I was worried I would have to return them, but it all worked out! I was a little concerned about the quality of the material since they weren't leather, but the canvas is really thick and the pattern is dope. I've gotten a ton of compliments! These shoes are great for cold, snowy weather. We don't mess around with the snow in Buffalo, and these keep my feet warm and dry. My only complaint is that the heel is really wide. My feet run between medium and wide width, and the heel is still really loose. The lacing helps keep my feet in place, but my heels still slip around a bit. If you've got narrow feet, these might be too big for you. I should also say don't look to my review for arch support. I haven't found a shoe yet with arch support high enough for my feet, so I'm not a reliable source for that.

Everyone who has owned a pair of Docs knows there is a break in period, and it is not painless at all! However, if you can fake it till you make it, these boots will become the most comfortable boot you own. I wear them to every music festival I go to and am the only person who leaves with their shoes in great condition and no bruised toes when people step all over me. They are edgy, very durable and will last you a lifetime. I got my first pair in 8th grade. Now I am 26 years old, still have my Docs from 8th grade, still buying more!

This shoe looks just like I hoped. The main thing is that you have to break them in. You initially might feel like they are too small but you should wear them for at least 2 Weeks and you notice that they will feel better. I love these boots and I hope they last long.

Nappa Leather much easier to break in and I love the look of these much better than the shiny black ones. They take a little bit to break in so be prepared.

I think that Dr. Marten's are good boots and shoes because they come in different colors and designs. And they can be worn in all types of weather except the summer.

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!

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 boots are AWESOME! There is a bit of a break-in period when I got blisters on my heels, but now that they are nice and broken in they are VERY comfortable. Excellent boots, highly recommended!

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!

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.
