I absolutely love these boots. They look good with skinny jeans and also under bootcut pants. They are so comfortable, it's as if you're wearing tennis shoes. I ordered my regular size, and they seemed a bit roomy in the toe but that just leaves room for nice, warm socks inside. I tend to have a bit wider feet typically, but I didn't find them to be too narrow like some of the other reviewers had said.

Alas, I have the boots I've waited three years for! These are my 4th pair of Docs and I have to say, I love these the most (probably because I had to wait for them). I love the satin laces, but I'm worried that they may not last an entire season (good thing there's a regular pair in the box too). I love the pairing of the rugged with the feminine. The antiqued finish is divine (I got the brown massai) and is even better and deeper once you wipe off the excess wax. One caution: I bought my normal size UK7 (US9) and they were monstrously huge and I had to exchange for a size smaller (no half sizes). These are a bit stiff, as usual, but in classic Doc style, they'll soften with wear and will end up being my favorite pair ever!

Brands I'd also recommend: Born, Franco Sarto, Matisse

Amazing - I was looking for a pair of tall, black boots that weren't high heeled, laced up, and didn't have a zipper on the side for convenience. When I saw these, I fell instantly in love. I was disappointed, though, because I am a women size 11, and these apparently only run up to women size 10 (UK 8). I did some research on Dr. Martens, though, and found out that they run big, and that their sizing translation from UK to US sizes isn't actually accurate. I have bought men shoes before and I know that I am a size 9.5, yet Dr. Martens say that a woman’s 11 are a man’s 10. I ended up finding a store that sold Dr. Martens shoes (not these boots, but other ones) and I tried on the UK 8 and UK 9. Even though their sizing charts say that the UK 9 should fit a US woman 11, it was way too large. I would have needed to wear a pair or two of winter socks with it. The UK 8 (supposedly women 10) fit wonderfully, so I ordered my shoes. I love them. One thing that surprised me was that the inside material is wool, which I wasn't expecting. It was scratchy on my legs at first, but I stopped noticing it after a while. I like the ribbons but do like that they sent another pair of normal laces, just in case. The boots are really easy to lace up, the eyelets on the shaft are really large and I can get both boots on and laced in about two minutes.

Most people say these do not need breaking in but mine did. The boot shaft was very stiff. They fit great and look great! I have received so many compliments already. I have a wide calf and I can still tie them all the way up, but I prefer it halfway. They look way dirtier than in the picture but you can rub off the dirt and make them look customized.

Love, love, love these boots. Have I mentioned I love these boots?! Extremely comfortable from the first wear, and I get lots of compliments when I wear them! Doesn't rub on my heel like other boots have. It is a bit time consuming to lace them up - but so worth it! And I love the option of the ribbon shoe lace. I have owned a lot of docs over the years and these might possibly be my favorite pair ever!

Love these boots! Very cute! The only thing I didn't like was that there isn't a zipper...you have to tie them up! Other than that they were perfect!

I have always wanted a pair of Dr. Martens and decided to finally bite the bullet. I bought the brown massai and I love the color along the floral design on the inside. There is a white powder residue on the boots but it wipes off with a soft cloth. They also come with ribbon and regular lace. I prefer the ribbon because it makes the boots look really girly! I read previous reviews about these boots being larger than normal in the toe area. I bought my usual size, UK 7 (US 9) and found them to fit well. Very comfortable to me. Guess I just have really big feet! Anyways, I love these boots and can't wait for the leather to soften so I can roll them down. Oh, and thank you Zappos for delivering them the day after I placed my order.

These are super rad! They are the best of both worlds: edgy army boot with a soft feminine touch. I have gotten so many complements on these boots - especially the silk ribbon. They are really comfortable and versatile. I have worn them over jeans, under jeans, with a dress, skirt, and they would probably even look good with the right shorts! And to top it all off, Zappos is awesome - I received these two days after I ordered them with free shipping. I definitely recommend these boots!

I usually wear an 8-9 in US sizing, so I first bought a UK 7. However, I found them too roomy in the ankle/heel area. I replaced them with a size 7 which at first seemed too snug in the toes, but now I've been wearing them for a couple days and they've stretched out and fit perfectly. The white powder on the Maasai colors rubs off and so far they seem pretty lightweight and offer good support... But then, I have really flat feet... I think these boots will be really durable and easy to dress up or down. Side note: I have big feet for my height and with the right size these boots don't make my feet look huge.

I was really excited about these boots. I missed purchasing them the first time around and was excited they became available again. I love them, like all my Docs. They don't really require any "breaking in" as the leather is pretty soft already. They're nice looking boots and I actually like the satin laces. There are only two (very minor) issues that I have with the boots to include the fact that the toes scuff easily (and I'm clumsy so it only took me about 30 minutes to scuff one of them) and there is no side zipper for easy removal. Still, I really like the look so overall I'm really happy with the boots and can't wait to wear them again.

Awesome boots. Comfortable the first time I put them on. They came with the white "waxy residue" on them - there is a little thing on the laces that explains what it is and it comes off if you wipe them with a clean cloth. I left a little on around the seams but took the majority off. They look great and feel great. True to size - I got a size 11.

I love these boots! They are super cool with all the extra details and a great fit for women with skinny legs. I'm a size 7 and decided to order a Euro4 due to Euro5 not being available. I'm stretching them with a double pair of socks and they are feeling great after 30 minutes. I'm so thrilled to have these. They look great with leggings and skirts. Yay! Another favorite pair of boots in my sweet collection!

Awesome - This boot is amazing. I love the look. The only down side is I wish they would make half sizes... but it’s not a big deal. They felt good right out of the box. The only thing I noticed was some discomfort on the back of my ankle but that went away after a couple days. Definitely recommend this boot.

Thinner than I expected, but really warm and resists water/snow really well. I was afraid that it wouldn’t fit my calves, but the stretchy panel in the back works wonders. The vine design though isn’t that easily noticed - it took a few moments before a friend realized they weren’t completely black.

Awesome boots! Upon opening the box, it was instant love - the smell of the leather, the luxurious satin laces, all the unique details! I was worried about the sizing because of other people's reviews, but I went with my instinct and ordered the size that was my US equivalent (I wear a 7.5-8, so I ordered the UK 6). Perfect fit! The width is slightly narrower than other Docs I've worn, but that's a good thing as I've always thought they were too wide! The leather is really soft and the interior tartan print is so cute, which is actually pink (I thought it looked red in the photos). They fit like a glove, seem very comfortable, and will look great with everything! I gather my love for these boots will not diminish at all. GET THESE BOOTS!

First Doc Martens and best boots I own! I can't believe I've waited all this time to get Dr. Martens. I LOVE them! This style is so comfortable, the leather is soft; they lace up very easily and even though the laces are a fat ribbon, they never untie! Only wish they came in half sizes, the size 6 is a tiny bit large on me.

LOVE THESE SHOES!!!! I absolutely love these shoes! I have not gotten over the black chunky shoe look that I always enjoyed wearing and comfort is one of the most important things to me in a shoe or boot. The leather is much softer than the usual Dr. Marten leather and these boots come with two sets of laces; one is a silky lace that is very feminine and the other is the usual black lace. I love anything tartan and it was a bonus that these boots came with a decorative tartan interior. I would highly recommend these boots! Run, don't walk!

No arch support and the elastic is very binding. As I wrote under my review of the Oylle style, it appears Arche is changing their last. I have been wearing Arche for years, but if these two styles are the new Arche, I won’t be wearing any new pairs… just hoping the pairs I have last.

Shoe runs BIG! I bought a size 8 because my feet are wide and I like a little extra room, which is what I do with all my close-toed purchases, but I look like I'm wearing clown shoes! The shoes are beautiful and I'm going to exchange them for a smaller size (unfortunately no half-sizes so I'm gonna have to risk a size 7 and hope for the best). Actually, a size 7 may be just right because these are massively big shoes!

Best boots ever!! I have always worn Dr. Martens boots and shoes and have always loved them - but these boots are the best boots I've ever owned. They are the softest leather and they are comfortable right away. There is no "breaking in" period. These boots are awesome!

Cool, comfy boot - I've been wanting a pair of Docs for a long time, and after much indecision, ended up with these. I'm glad I did. They look really cool, and they're very comfortable as well. You're supposed to be able to wear them folded over if you want; I think that looks pretty clunky. But they look great laced all the way up.

Love My Docs - I love these boots so much. I have wanted a pair of Doc Martens since I was a teen and really wanted an updated version of the classic. I love how tough these boots look, but still have the feminine touches with the pink plaid and satin laces. I really feel super cool when I wear these. They are also so, so, so, so comfortable. I was worried they would be stiff, but from the moment I first put these on, they were perfect. I cannot wait to get a motorcycle so I can wear these. I really love these boots.

Surprisingly light weight boot - These are super cute motorcycle-type boots. They come with an extra pair of laces if you don't like the satin ones (but I do!) they run a little big...I’m going to add an insert...but they have a very light weight and are comfortable for such a "heavy" looking boot. Zappos got these to me within 24 hours of my order at no extra charge! I love Zappos!!!
