These are my 2nd pair of Docs from Zappos. I love the style and the quality of the shoe. I usually wear a 6 1/2 but these Docs only come in full sizes so I went with a 7. I also have a slightly wider foot. The boots do feel a little lose but not so much as to rub the wrong way and overall are a very comfortable fit.

Normally my docs are 1 size smaller (woman's 9 and I usually wear a 10), these I ordered for woman's 10 and they fit great. At least with Zappos it isn't a pain to change if you guess wrong. Comfortable, sturdy. Have to mess with all the laces to get them on and off. I wanted leather boots for riding a motorcycle that weren't steel toes and I wasn't ready for ugly racing style boots so these are perfect because I can be comfortable walking around in them too.

This boot takes forever to break in, but when it is broken in, it's perfect for years. If you live in a place with moderate winters, it's an excellent alternative to winter boots, the traction of the soles is impeccable.

I love this boot. Unfortunately it looks to ridiculous on me! So I have had them sitting on a stand for over a week contemplating on their future and have decided they must go back. Boo. Now to continue on with my great search for the perfect boot for me!

Oh. My. God. These boots are just so beautiful. I've just (just as in, literally five minutes ago) received them and they are just so full of oomph. :) I love them already. They feel perfectly comfortable and, though at first sight they seem a little fragile, the feeling's gone the moment you slip 'em on. They are perfect, and perfectly true to the web description. If you are looking for classic Dr. Martens, this is clearly the way to go. :)

These boots are fantastic. I ordered them on Thursday and received them today. (Tuesday) which, in my book, is very fast shipping. First, out of the box, they looked lovely. I put them on, and they were very stiff - which was to be expected, they're brand new boots! But, after wearing them for around two hours they're more comfortable. I've still got a lot of wearing in to do, but they're already feeling better. I love Zappos, and there were no problems with the order. I normally wear a US size 8 1/2 - 9 and I ordered a 9. They seem to be half a size too big, but I read that that's usually what happens. They look fantastic and they should be worn in fairly quickly. I love them. Thank you, Zappos!

I received these shoes today and sadly they felt a size to big. They also made my feet look huge. I wear a size 8, so I ordered a size 6. I remember back in the day, I wore a 5 but went with the recommended size in case things changed since the late 80's early 90's. I love the shoes. They are comfortable, light and very nice overall. I am returning them due to the size and I am so sad to find that I can't find a size 5 in any of the black boots. I was so tempted to keep them anyway because of the comfort, but I know I need to go smaller. So I have opted for the Black Nappa Mary Jane's. I truly hope those fit better because these are such nice shoes! Although I am bummed, I simply love Zappos for their easy and convenient return policy. I received these next day. I've never ordered from anywhere but Zappos and received the item the very next afternoon! You guys are awesome!

I've never owned a pair of Doc's before this pair. Ordered the red flowery ones, size1460W, for me and the black 1460s for my daughter. We both wear a US size 9. We were able to compare the difference in the sizing between the two pairs: the 1460Ws fit us both very well, and the 1460s are a bit longer and wider. Great service from Zappo's, and I think the red flowery boots are so cute! On Day 2 of wearing them, they're starting to feel really cozy on my feet and warm, too!

These fit right to size. The leather is very thin, so they would not be a warm winter boot. They are not lined, just leather, so my socks stick which is a bit weird. But, they feel great, very very comfortable, I love them.

This was the perfect solution for my Doc Marten problem. I was between sizes in the regular 1460. When I discovered the 1460 W was slightly smaller, more of a women's size, I found that these boots were great. I'm between a 7½ and 8 normally, and in this case, what they consider a women's size 8 American did the trick.

I ordered these shoes on a Friday, and had to wait all weekend for them to come until Monday. Fell in love with these boots. They are utterly amazing! They will be perfect for the rain and the downfall of snow in the winter. Ordered the black nappa, and the leather is very soft. Took only a few days to break in, not too bad at all. These boots are a must have! And love Zappos as well.

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 ordered this style in the black nappa and had slight problems, but at the same time they were too big to ignore. The boots were great except the part where the tongue and boot meet. It dug into my feet and hurt too much to keep them. However it's not because of the width of the boot. I have wide-ish feet and the width was just right. It was just that darn seam! I just felt the boot wasn't as finished as it could've/should've been since I've owned other brands of similarly built boots and never have had a problem like that. For the price I feel a little more could've been done about that! Otherwise, they would've been fine. The leather is great. It's soft yet not weak, and feels already broken-in. If I decide to give Docs a try again, I'd for sure go back for a style in the black nappa. I still would really like a pair, growing up in the 90s and all, but I'll give my hunt a break for now. Perhaps the men's version of this style might fit better?

These boots are ROCKIN'!!! Love the easy transaction and fast shipping! Customer service was great and very willing to assist in every way! I have worn my boots once and received 5 compliments all day! The down side, I actually thought they would be gold gold; they're more like a mirror yellow like the mustard color! That's okay though, I happen to like to yellow color in mirror. PERFECT!!!!!

I’ve had a pair of these for years and they’ve always been reliable. They got me through college, some long periods of backpacking and now professional life (I spend a lot of time outside on my feet). What I love about them is that they are a great all-around pair of shoes; they’re comfortable, durable, waterproof, and have good traction, and look much better with jeans or pants than sneakers would. Every time I tell myself that it’s time to get rid of them (because I’ve worn the soles almost through), I realize that I can’t find a single pair of shoes that does all of the above. They’re staying in my closet until I buy a new pair. While it’s true that they’re not much in the realm of arch support, I threw a pair of insole inserts into them and they’ve been comfortable for hours on end. Don’t forget to budget some time for breaking them in before you go out for the day, too - the stiff leather just needs some wear to get comfortable. I’m a US 9.5 and wear a UK 7 in these, which gives me room for warm socks.

I absolutely love these pair of Dr. Martens. I was a bit concerned, at first, about the "bulk-iness" or size of the boots, but when I tried them on upon receiving them, they looked exactly how I wanted, not too bulky, but still has a bulky bold look. I usually wear a US size 6 or 5 1/2, and I got the UK size 4 and they fit perfectly. The Nappa color is a great soft matte black color and matches with just about every outfit.

I have a very difficult foot to fit - I wear an 8 1/2 wide, and I am on my feet all day, so I need comfortable footwear. I love this boot style, and tried it in the regular 1460 UK 6. That was comfy around the widest part of my foot (small toe) but too big in the ankle. I thought the 1460 W might work but it was smaller in the wide part of my foot and the ankle was still big. The leather wasn't soft, either and I was afraid I would be ultimately unable to wear them. Back they go, and the search continues.

Our daughter saw these in a store before Christmas and had to have them. Bought them for her through Zappos.com and had them under the tree. Sadly, when she opened the box, the boots were stained with black splotches that I hadn't seen before wrapping them. This was definitely a Doc Marten distributor issue, but was a shame that Zappos.com didn't check the quality of them prior to sending them to our house. Have to schlep them back to the post office for a return and try to find them elsewhere. Don't think that I will buy over the internet again since they are expensive and guess I need to be able to eyeball them first before the purchase. The product itself is very nice; the boot is built well and very cute.

I always wanted a pair of Doc Marten 1460s since I was in middle school. Unfortunately, my mother did not share in this dream, and my boots never materialized. \r\n\r\nThen I ran into a striking woman during NY\'s Fashion Week this past September, and she had on a pair of patent leather 1460s in black and from that moment on, I knew I absolutely had to have them. Fortunately, my very sweet boyfriend was kind enough to purchase these for me. \r\n\r\nAs for the look, they are absolutely amazing! I throw them on with denim shorts, layered t-shirts and I\'m out the door. My legs look amazing in them and I don\'t know, there\'s just something about wearing 1460s that gives you a ton of confidence. I also love the fact that they are patent leather and not plain leather. It makes them a bit more unusual and unique. I\'ve already gotten quite a few looks because of them. \r\n\r\nNow, as for the fit: I\'m an 8.5/9 depending on the company and a solid 40 in European brands and a UK 7. I went with a size 9 in these and am very pleased. My feet don\'t look big and there\'s a solid amount of toe room with socks on. My ONLY issue was with the stitching that joins the tongue to the shoe itself, on the inside of the boot that hits to top of my right foot -- well that hurt for at least the first few wears. But not that they are finally broken in, I wear them with zero problems. Apart from that, they are unbelievably comfortable and relatively lightweight. I am beyond thrilled with my purchase and highly recommend them to anyone considering them. Worth every penny!

These boots look okay from a distance, but the leather is flimsy. They\'re like a representation of boots. I\'d never tried Dr. Martens before, but they were all around New York in the 1980\'s and looked to be of good quality then. They must have tried to cut back on manufacturing costs in more recent years. I plan to return these boots. This is no criticism of Zappos; they have the friendliest, most professional customer service division anywhere, and I plan to continue shopping with them.

The perfect fit, no break in period, comfortable as can be! The leather was very very supple, which worries me a little since I remember my older Dr. Martens feeling a little more sturdy and actually needing a break in period, but, hey, if I can wear it everyday and feel like I'm walking on air, what's there to complain about, right?
