I wear these Doc Martens almost every day. They are very comfortable and will last for years. Very well made shoes which can take a pounding.

What a disaster this last pair has been. I've worn Docs nearly everyday for the last 10 years and have two pairs that I purchased in England in 2000 that have lasted better than the current Chinese models have. The England made ones look terrible but are in better shape structurally than the pair I bought here in September 2009. The new ones have seems pulling apart, the rolled part around the ankle is coming apart and the soles have worn at a rate exponentially faster than the English made ones. It's a pity that a brand that I came to see as a great value in comfortable, no nonsense shoes has sold out and now produces disposable, trashy products. I will never buy another pair of Docs.

These shoes were purchased as a Christmas gift for my 27 year old son. He manages an upscale restaurant and is on his feet, not surprisingly, for 12 hrs. or more a day. He loves these shoes. They were true to size but even if they weren't, Zappos incredible return policy makes it so easy to exchange for another size. I cannot sing the praises of Zappos enough. Great company, great customer service, and great products! They sell more than shoes!

I bought these as a replacement pair for my boyfriend for Christmas. His last pair lasted him years and years and finally just fell apart. If you are considering this shoe, go for it. You will get your money's worth!

Notice the configuration of the soles. For me, Dr Marten's with these soles are the most comfortable. Every pair of Docs I've had take a while to break-in and initially these do not appear to be an exception. The gaucho finish is nicely variegated. I prefer to add an insole to my shoes and these are plenty deep to accommodate.

Doc Martens never fail to satisfy. I'm on my feet a lot at work, and this shoe is super comfortable (and cool looking). It seemed important to have a black to go with my brown. Fantastic, comfortable, stylish and durable -- I've had the brown for 15 years and it shows no signs of stopping.

These are fantastic shoes. I wear them every day, and I've never had any trouble. I especially like the material used to make the sole of these shoes. They don't scuff the floor like other shoes.

I wear these as a work shoe. I have bought 4 or 5 pairs of these over the years. The oil resistant sole is key for me. It's a ery comfortable, rock solid shoe. Orthotic friendly. Zappos' service is great.

I've worn these shoes for a couple of years now, mostly in a business casual environment. These shoes are very comfortable and show no signs of wear! I use Dr. Marten's wonder shoe balsam to keep them looking new. For anyone wanting a comfortable, durable pair of business casual shoes I highly recommend these. As usual Zappos' service is the best!

This is my second pair in this particular style; the first pair lasted about eight years (in fact, they are still fundamentally sound, just a little beat-up looking). These are great business-casual shoes and are incredibly comfortable.

I love my Docs! I buy 2 new pairs (one black, one brown) every couple of years since they last so long. Zappos provided prompt service, which is nice, except that they sent me the wrong color! The box was marked correctly, but the wrong shoes had been put in them. I wore them before I realized they were black, not Crazy Horse like I had ordered. In my defense, it was dark when I put them on for the first time so I couldn't tell until I was at work and had to wear them all day. I didn't feel I should return them at that point. I like the black ones, so I kept them, but I really needed the brown ones more urgently. I'll have to save up for another pair.

These are very good shoes for the price. They are sturdy and look quite stylish with just about any attire. They are stiff right out of the box, but after breaking in for a couple of weeks, they are very comfortable. The padded part around the ankle is nice. A word of warning - they are surprisingly slippery on ice, so be careful if you live somewhere with icy sidewalks.

Great shoes! Great service! Got the wrong size, but the return process was so easy! I was able to get the new pair in the correct size even before the old ones were sent back. No hassles and no problems with billing. I love Zappos just for this reason and because they always have larger sizes available in styles my 15 year old likes to wear. The shoes are comfortable and just what he wanted.

Overall these shoes do not live up to the Doc Marten image. While they look nice at first, I am starting to regret buying them. They are a poor quality imitation of the real deal. First the leather quality is clearly cheap. Since I bought them the leather has stretched significantly, making the shoe uncomfortable to wear. 2nd the construction is also sub par. The sole looks deformed because it was unevenly cut around the edge. On top of that, the stitching is starting to come undone after just 2 months. The sole is also much harder than the original, and does not wear as well. I barely wear them any more because they actually hurt my feet when walking or standing for periods of time. Personally I would never buy another Doc Marten shoe.

Brands I'd also recommend: none

These shoes are awesome, I stand on my feet for 8 hours at a time and it takes about a year and a half for them to break down. I work in a casino behind the tables and stand in the same spot all night. I used to wear sneakers but had to replace them every 8 weeks or so. Now I only wear DOCS!

Love these shoes! Helpful hint: go for a smaller size than you might expect. I have owned a similar pair of Dr. Martens in brown for 15 years, and they just don't wear out, stop looking good, or cease to be comfortable. So I decided to buy a pair in black. Since the style is only available in whole sizes, and I wear an 8 1/2, I wasn't sure which size to buy. The size on my old pair has rubbed away, but even though I usually size up to a 9 in such situations, I chose the 8, since I bought my old pair before my feet had "spread," and the old pair fits so well. I knew I could make the gamble, thanks to Zappos' return policy. I didn't need to take advantage of that return policy because the 8s fit perfectly. I should say the leather is a wee bit stiff at the heel and rubs the tiniest bit, but I have confidence the shoes will break in handsomely and will make me happy for a couple of decades.
