Love the way these boots look! Great apocalyptic look. The black mirage is a matte, soft-looking and feeling black. Loose, comfortable feel. If you want a tighter fit, these probably won't work for you. These don't require a breaking-in period. I usually wear a 7.5 women's, my feet are narrow in the heel, but in Dr Martens I wear UK 5. Because they are boots, I don't have any problems with my narrow feet slipping and I don't add insoles.

This looks great with anything, really. It has a nice stylish flair that separates if from the other Doc Martens out there and that's why I got them. However, the comfort is something else: the part where the leather tongue starts is very painful that it's difficult to walk in them and I can't stop thinking about how it's squeezing my feet. I'm hoping it will loosen up the more I use it because it is definitely true to size and I love them already! I'm thinking of maybe purchasing one of those wooden shoe stretchers that I saw at Clarks stores to hasten the break-in process but other than that part, I recommend these beautiful pair! Good luck & happy shoe shopping!

I absolutely love these boots and wear them nearly every day. I have pretty large calves - about 17 inches - and these fit. Usually when people say boots fit their large calves, they don't fit mine. The straps widen to allow more room and don't look goofy. I hope these last as long as my other Docs did!

I got these for my teen for Christmas. She loves them and they look really cute on. She is very petite and has sticks for legs. We took them to the shoe shop to add extra holes in the buckles. Maybe some day she'll grow into them.

Brilliant boots! Not the classic full grain leather, soft and pliable out of the box, with wear they will become slouchy and more casual looking. Wore them three days straight after getting them for Christmas and have no complaints.

I love these boots. My concern was that they were going to be heavy and stiff. They are so soft not heavy and there was no break in time at all. On the sizing perhaps a half a size larger than what I needed in a little bit wider but then again I have very narrow feet the greatest teacher is essentially the three strips of leather that will go up your leg and then there are these adjustable bands that go around your leg so that you can get a good fit whether your calf is slender or athletic. I am always worried that I am going for fashion without comfort since I was in a car accident that has really affected my feet but I can honestly say I can wear these all day long. Lots of compliments; you can get a biker look goth look or just look coo in these boots.

I was so happy when I got the boots but got extremely sad and disappointed when I saw them. :'( They are not Black. They are more like a grayish color (I hate gray), kinda like a faded black. They are cute and fitted me very nicely but I wanted BLACK boots, I don't like how gray looks on me. I would have kept them if they were truly black but since they are not I will be sending them back, sorry Dr. Martens. :(

Love these boots. Perfect for everyday casual wear in winter, look great with skinny jeans. Also fab for camping, outdoor events and serious hiking. Comfy, stylish and "biker chic."

I have ordered and returned about 10 pair of boots trying to find that perfect one. Guess what? I found it. Edgy, sexy, and cool to the max. Comfy right out of the box. I did have to put a full foot insert in them for comfort and to take up the extra room (narrow feet), but I did not care. Nikita has nothing on me in these boots. Yeah!!!

Brands I'd also recommend: none

These boots are so funky! I absolutely love these! They look amazing with jeans and an over sized coat and hobo bag, perfection! I normally wear and 8.5, but in Dr. Martens, I always need to size down. So I had to get an 8 in these or 6 (UK). It's nice because the buckles are adjustable so depending on the size of your lower leg, you can just them for the entire length of your leg!

I am very disappointed that I have to return these boots. I bought them in a US8 & US9. The 8 was too short, but fit everywhere else. The 9 was way too big in the foot area. It was obvious when looking at them that they are too big. I really like the boot and was looking forward to wearing them. I feel that if they were available in 1/2 sizes, they would have worked. Even thick socks did not help.

They are awesome. I am a runner so I have pretty wide calves and the buckles are adjustable so that they can go over jeans easily, or be cinched to stay up with just leggings or stockings. I used band-aids to prevent blisters for the first day, but I don't think I actually needed them. They have a roomy toe box and good arch support (I have pretty flat feet). And they're fun!

Love this great looking and comfortable boot! Never had a pair of Doc Martens before. I wear orthotics and these are able to accommodate them, which is a huge plus! I just removed the insert that came with and put in my own. Looks great with skirts or jeans. Arch support is between none and slight.

GREAT boot - been on the hunt for something like this for a long time and had never looked at Dr. Martens. Looks fantastic on - boot shaft is not too tall for us shorter gals. Agree it runs large - I probably would have ordered an 8 if I had not read previous reviews but sized down and went with a 7 and it fits fine. Can't wear a thick sock with it but no need to. Great boot for the price! Looking for a change in the weather so I have a good excuse to wear it.

This is a great boot! The style is fantastic and I've gotten nothing but compliments since I got them. Great over jeans and with a dress. Fantastic for walking anywhere! I will say, like any Doc Marten, they take time to break in. I have a bit of a high arch, so that took a little wearing in, but well worth it!

Zappos has the greatest selection of shoes and boots that I’ve ever found and believe me, I am a shoe/boot shopper! At least 8 pairs of beautiful, perfect boots are from Zappos and lots of pretty shoes! The customer service, next day delivery, and quick return policy is outstanding! I am particularly enjoying my new Dr. Martens Phina boots that I’ve just received. They are exciting to wear and I get a lot of looks and compliments on these awesome looking boots. Although I do need to break the right boot in a little by wearing it more often because it causes a blister on the back of my heel, but I’ve found that when I’d slipped an arch support in to the boots that it helps. These boots are fabulous and just pure fun to wear on the weekends and on vacation. I feel like a fashion diva!

I ADORE these boots! I was nervous about ordering them since I have bigger calves (14inches) and have had a MASSIVE problem over the years attempting to try and find those Perfect pair of knee high boots. I was also worried because I am short (4’11”) and was worried they might be too tall (jabbing in the back of the knee). They fit around my calf VERY nicely. I actually had to take them in an inch (not hard because of the leather being softer. I just used a sharp nail to put in new holes.) I was also concerned because a lot of reviews stated that they "bunch up". They do very slightly, but it didn’t bother me. Especially when I tightened the top two straps, bunching went away. They stay up - EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE. Took me around 4 days to break in the heels (bandaids = friend) after that, I have actually fallen asleep in these! I get compliments every time I wear them. I was surprised that I could dress them up a bit and still have them looking great. Also perfect for casual. I found the arch support to be WONDERFUL. I suffer from severe Tarsal Tunnel so arch support is a deal breaker with me on any shoe wear. I find these boots are actually the best foot wear for my legs. The buckles are not as big as in the photo - my only complaint is that I had to stretch/wear in the leather around my toes, something I have NEVER had to do. (I have EXTREMELY small feet, I wear a size 5) Other than that - I am extremely happy with these!

These boots rock. Soft leather upper makes them much more comfortable than the other DM pair I ordered (thanks Zappos for the easy return!). Adjustable straps are great for tailoring your look: jeans in vs. tights. I can see how others would add more holes if their calves are slim, but they’re fine as is for me. I wear 9W and the 8 fits perfectly. Lots of room in the toe box.

Awesome boots. Many others have said they are too wide through the leg, but I don’t think this style of boot is meant to fit skin tight, plus they fit easily over a pair of jeans and are incredibly comfortable. Even w/o the jeans underneath I was not bothered by the slight looseness, as they do not sag, but maintain their appearance perfectly. It just makes them super comfy. Of course, with Doc Martins Air Step soles, my feet are loving walking in these. Plus, I have gotten dozens of compliments on how they look just in the first couple of days I wore them.
