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.

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.

Beautiful Purple color boot and took awhile breaking them in. I bought for my teenage daughter and this is the color she desperately wanted. About a month or so after she broke them in (which took some bandaids to ease the blisters), the purple leather started wearing off in patches. It's worn off down to the first layer. I wanted to return them but since it took her a couple of months to break them in, she didn't want to go through that again with another pair. Very disappointed to see more and more spots wearing away on these boots. I've owned a lot of Docs, and this has never happened! This is a pair made in Thailand, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.

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!

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!

I LOVE these boots. I've been looking for this dark red color everywhere and could only find on Zappos. Like any quality leather boot, they take some time to break in, but that only means they are going to last you forever. You can't go wrong with these - they are a classic.

This is the second pair of Docs I have purchased from Zappos for my daughter in the past two years. She loves the Nappa leather because it is so soft and comfortable. These boots are super durable and look great even with a little wear & tear. We have also had excellent customer service and fast delivery.

These are amazing shoes. I took them out of the box a few days ago and have not stopped wearing them. They take some wearing in but I can already feel them forming to my feet. Good quality, great style - an excellent choice!

Love these. Classic DM style and color. Super comfy. Can be a bit clunky and heavy but once you get the hang of them they are easy to wear. Be careful the first few days on stairs. Size down. I am a 6.5/7 and I ordered a uk4/us6.

Wow. I got these in Black Nappa 1460W and I'm so glad I did. They were pretty comfy right out of the box. I'm usually an 8 1/2 so I ordered these in a size 8 UK and they were perfect. I only wore them around the house a couple of times, and then wore them all day at a music festival with nothing but tights on my feet. Not one blister or breakdown did I get! They look exactly like the smooth leather and if you didn't touch them with your hands you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. These are so much softer and easier to break in so I highly recommend the Black Nappa's for comfort and style. Best shoe purchase I've made in a long time. Thanks Zappos!

Excellent! Fun! Fashionable! My daughter loves these boots. She gets compliments on them every day at school. In the past when I ordered from Zappos things arrived the very next day I guess I didn't qualify for free next day shipping on this order - so that was a little disappointing as these were a birthday gift. But it wasn't Zappos fault. Zappos is a top notch company! It was worth the wait. She absolutely loves them. They look great with skirts, jeans and leggings.

Zappos was a great place to shop. Transaction was smooth from beginning to end. Knowing that if the shoe was not right for me when I got it, it was refreshing to know that I could send it back free of charge within a year time frame. The shoes I ordered are very comfortable. The break in with time. The may run a little on the large size. Just in the sense they do not squeeze your feet. The soles are really good if you have feet problems like myself.
