Amazing fit, broke in within a few hours of walking around at work. Great for very cold morning motorcycle rides and being in business attire at work!

I bought these boots from a different retailer. First of all, I work in an office most of the time and spend some time on field surveys. I have owned several Dr. Martens boots and it is always the same, the soles do not hold up they wear out in less than a year although the upper leather portion still seems okay these boots will destroy your feet worse than any other. They caused chronic lower back pain and my feet were hurting all the time after 9 months of use. Take my advice and stay clear and buy a real pair of boots. Stay away from these cheaply made boots and all Dr. Martens, buy a well made quality boot. Your feet and back will thank you.

Excellent boots. Bought these on sale to use as motorcycle boots. But they were so comfortable, I now wear them around as well. Thick leather, sewn-on soles, top-notch construction. I was very pleasantly surprised. A real deal, and handsome too.Rugged looking, without the all-black statement.

I love this boot! I am 48 years old and all my life have never been able to wear a pull on boot due to a narrow foot (C width). I can wear this boot in a D width and it is very comfortable , I think the padded ankle helps reduce heel slip. The soles seem a little softer than other boots I have owned which makes them even more comfortable. Great boot!

Ok, my wife got a pair of the 2295 steel toed version of these boots for me to wear when riding my motorcycle, and while I thought the look was the bomb, walking a full day in them after a decent break in period still brought tears to my eyes. Luckily I was able to return those to the local shoe store and get these boots from Zappos. I am a big fan of Dr. Martens, but I have noticed sizing issues since they stopped being produced, for the most part, in England. These ran true to size, I am a 10.5 American size I ordered a size 10. I recommend ordering the half size smaller like I did since the leather will stretch to fit quite quickly and comfortably. I’ve found this to be true of all my Docs except the "for life" versions which feel nearly a size larger than labeled. The look of these boots is great, very similar to picture. A very dark oily brown nearly black in dim light. It will lighten a bit when scratched or rubbed, but if you get the Dr. Marten wonder balm it puts them right back to original condition. The leather is a nice mix of stiff and supple, they broke in within evenings wear. They are stiff enough to be supportive in the right places, but the bend where they should without painful stiffness or rubbing. I rate the comfort at 4 only because they come with Dr. Martens typical nearly nonexistent insoles. A decent set of insoles make these every day all day boots for me.

Vermont lady – This boot is what a boot should be. I have worn them on my motorcycle, hiking, walking my dog, with Levi’s, and even to a party with a long skirt. These boots are the perfect all around look for my life. A little snug in the beginning, I thought I was going to have to wear them with a thin sock. However, I graduated sock thickness every few days and now find that I can wear a medium thick wool sock. Warm, comfortable, waterproof, and perfect for my Vermont lifestyle. Thank you.

Very excellent boots - To start with the boots were a bit tight across my high instep, but they are breaking in very nicely. I can now wear them all day with no problems. I like the traction and the looks. I have worn them on the motorcycle and to court. Thanks to Zappos for a great boot and great service.

Fantastic boot. Best you can buy. I wear boots every day, all year long, and for walking, work, and riding motorcycles this boot is absolutely perfect. I have owned 3 other pairs of Docs, and this is by far the most comfortable. It takes about two days to break these in, but it is a very easy two days compared to other boots I have owned. The leather is thick and sturdy, and the boot is so comfortable a fit I didn't even need to put additional insoles in them. I ordered one size smaller than I usually wear, since Docs run large, and they fit perfectly. Hands down a great product and Docs last forever.

Best Boots Ever! I bought these boots for my husband. He is very picky about boots and only wears the step in kind as opposed to the lace up. The last pair he bought lasted about 8 months, that should tell you how rough he is on boots. He works on the pipeline, so he has to have a good boot. I saw these on Zappos and told him he should try them because of the ankle support that is built into it, in addition to the fact that I have always heard good things about Dr. Martens. He LOVES these boots, said they were the best pair he has ever worn, just like wearing a pair of tennis shoes. Comfortable and lightweight, durable and tough. Do not hesitate to buy these boots, they are worth every penny spent and you will not be sorry. You can't lose by purchasing them here either, we ordered at 6pm one day and they were here at 2pm the next with no extra shipping charges! You can't beat that for service!

Best boots ever! I would like to start by thanking Zappos.com! You guys ROCK! These are the most comfortable boots right from the start!!! If they hold up like the other Docs I've had, then I will enjoy these for many years to come! I am thinkin' about buying another pair for when I finally do wear these out! Thanks again Zappos, I plan on buying all my shoes from y'all from now on!!!

Tight Squeeze - This boot is tricky to get on. I needed the old bread bag trick to get into them. Once they're on, they are all day comfortable. I'm hoping they get easier to get into the more I wear them.

Gotta love those Doc's - These boots were excellent, exactly what i have been looking for. They give you that rugged cowboy boot look but feel like a tennis shoe. The people at Zappos were amazing as well, quick service and delivery, can't say enough good things about them.

Dr. Martens are Excellent as expected - Zappos! Great service! Highly recommended! Always fast! I have had several pairs of Dr. Martens and have never been disappointed; the look, the comfort, the fit; its all there and they do a great job of making a shoe that works for me with many different uses. I bought these looking for a boot that looks good with jeans or khakis, works both ways and is extremely comfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: Docs, Keens

Awesome! I have worn these boots almost every day since I bought them and they are awesome. I am an outdoorsman and these boots are the toughest boots I've ever had. I can walk in them all day without any sign of discomfort. I would recommend them to anyone with feet!

Great Buy - I bought these for work as I'm a building inspector and there aren't too many safety shoes let alone work shoes for women. They are very comfortable and the fit is awesome! Would highly recommend

My new favorite boots - These are a dream come true. Motorcycle/cowboy/work boots. They are so soft and comfortable, no break-in time at all. They feel like they will last forever like all Dr. Martins - I still wear a pair from 1988. They are forever in style and practically indestructible.

Brands I'd also recommend: Any other Dr. Martens

Would love to wear these EVERYDAY - I love these boots and get compliments each time I wear them. Love the fact that they are Dr. Marten's without being lace up. The padding around the ankles is wonderful. I have to watch to make sure they don't disappear from my closet and wind up on my son's feet! If I can't find them, I know they are walking around the high school!

GREAT FIT BUT WENT UP A SIZE - Great boots! If you like a little more roomy fit go up a size. I felt the tightness mostly on the top of my foot. I tend to have not a very high arch, so my feet spread out. Zappos maybe a little more expensive but they have great customer service.
