I was a bit apprehensive about the fit, the squeaking soles and the overall comfort, but that went right out the window once I got them! The trick for me was to wear them in the house one day of the weekend, and then by Monday they were broken in nice! They are fantastic in any weather, the soles are super grippy, and they are very comfortable to walk in for long distances. These shoes are definitely worth the money! I\'m a fan!

I picked these Dr. Martens out as a Christmas present. They are awesome! I wear a size 15 shoe and Zappos is the only place I can get shoes from. I made the right choice.

Brands I'd also recommend: I also received a pair of Vans, would recommend them also.

I\'ve been purchasing Doc Martens for years and these shoes are exactly what I\'ve come to expect: stylish, well made and comfortable. I have a pair very similar to these which I\'ve had for over 10 years and they still look and feel great. You may pay a little more but you get every penny and then some from their shoes. I highly recommend these!

They are huge. I wear a size 7½-8 and my feet were swooshing around in them. The size 8 shoes that I ordered felt like a 9. They are very cute, and solid shoes otherwise. Doc Martens are heavy, I suppose that is good for a workout for your legs.

I had to buy these shoes based on style. The fit kind of snug, but I'm sure that will manage itself out. I have a wide foot so I knew that would be an issue anyways.

These shoes are extremely wide and very heavy. If you want to look funky these are not the shoes for going out dancing.

These shoes get a lot of attention, but unfortunately my feet need some attention after wearing them! They\'re comfortable otherwise, but the opening is stiff, unpadded leather that digs into the skin above my feet. I wore them for a week straight to try and break them in but the leather just keeps digging!

I am ridiculously enamored with the pewter patent style of these. They definitely are going to take time to break in, but hopefully that won't take too long. One other thing to consider is these don't appear to be able to breathe at all, so that might be an issue. My one complaint is that the laces that shipped with them are really flimsy and feel like they are going to snap at any moment.

These were a gift for my husband. They ran true to his US shoe size. He appears to wear them in comfort. And he looks hot in them.

These shoes are fantastic! I work in a men's clothing store and must wear formal shoes at all times, which is not ideal for one's feet. I have other Dr. Marten's boots and they've always left my feet feeling better after a long day, and these serve just as well, and look sharp with a nice charcoal or navy suit. Don't be put off by how light the soles appear -- when they're not backlit on a white surface they look nice and dark.

I first started using Docs back in '94 and probably wore the brand through to '99. I had these very same shoes back then as well. And as many of us do, I moved on to other brands of shoes not thinking any further about Docs as a brand and well years pass. So this month I needed a good casual shoe that can go with Khaki's or denim or corduroys and like a flash I thought I'll get Docs again! So upon putting them on again three days ago, I completely forgot how comfortable they really are and couldn't believe I had been away from Docs for so long! It's a great feeling and a great buy. The overall quality and workmanship is excellent and as good as I recall from 19 years ago. Wow.

These were my first Doc Martens ever. For many years, for some reason, I thought that Docs were too narrow for me, so I never tried them. After looking for big size wing tips (14 US and usually Wides) I found these. The reviews saying they run a little big are true. Hopefully they'll stand up over time, but there was almost no breaking in time. I wore these straight out of the box for three days/evenings straight at a music festival and they felt great. I might buy some insoles which might take away the loose feel, but maybe thicker socks will do the trick when it gets cold in a few months.

Right out of the box these shoes look great. I commute to work 5 days a week in the city. So it is very important to have a shoe I can depend on. I was happy that these did not have to go through much of a breaking in period if any. They're comfortable and durable. They run a little big in case you're concerned about half sizes, which I was. Great fit! Great shoe! Looking forward to getting another pair of Docs.

When it came time to buy a new pair of work shoes I decided on Doc Martens. I had a pair of 1460 boots that lasted 15 years and where the best shoes I owned. I decided on this shoe and am so glad I did. They look really cool and I got a lot of compliments at work and they feel great. Took a little time to break in but that is standard procedure with Docs. I highly recommend these shoes for both comfort and style.

Been wearing the wingtip shoes since 1996. I actually just received my 7th pair of black wing tips which I use for work. I also have a brown and a burgundy pair both wing tips of coarse for other occasions or when I go out. I wear them till they are an eyesore to my wife but every pair has lasted me no less than three years and the only reason they become an eyesore is because i wear the bottoms out. These are great shoes and I will continue to purchase them until I retire which is still 20 years away.

I like the shoes a lot. They're a bit different, breaking the mold of the typical office shoe. They're comfortable to wear all day long. I like the trademark soft and rubbery sole of the shoe.

Be aware that Dr Martens are now made in China as opposed to England...like they were back in the days. My husband gets to rock a little of his punk rock style at work with this Docs since they're more work appropriate than the boots.

Speaking from my husband's point of view, he's in love with these shoes. We have been looking for a casual wing tip shoe for 2 years now. They are extremely well made & comfortable. True to size. Go for it, if its' what you're looking for.

I have had a pair of Doc Martens in the past, so I knew what size to get. These shoes are very stylish and durable. I work on my feet and my last pair lasted 1½ years. I still wear the original pair on the weekend. I chose this model for its style.

These are good shoes. None of that strange yellow stitching around the edge, chunky soles. Not much to the interior. I added a pair of orange Superfeet, and now the shoes seem perfect. Comfy, durable, handsome, what more could I want?

This shoe is the perfect blend of classy with its wingtip design and sturdy with all leather upper and rugged sole. It has a wider toe box than most wingtips that I have tried. The sole is a bit chunkier than I would prefer, but looks good with chinos and jeans. In my job as a high school teacher, I want to look professional, but also be comfortable. These needed very little time to break in [about 2 days]. I wear them just about everyday at work. They can really handle rain and snow too. Give the construction, probably the last pair of dress shoes I will need to buy. Thanks Dr. Martens and thank you Zappos.com.

In typical Doc Marten fashion, these shoes take a few days to break in and conform to your foot. Once they do, however, they are amazing. Much more style and appeal than standard Gibsons, and they are far more comfortable than any other longwing style shoe I could find. My entire footwear wardrobe has just been reduced to these, NB 990's, and Merrell hiking boots.
