I was hesitant to buy these at first because I've been dying to get the 1460w's for the longest time. I once had an opportunity to try the 1460w and felt that they were way too stiff (but didn't care cause their look completely made up for it). Not being able to find 1460w in my size anywhere, I decided to give a shot to Pascals. And in all honesty, I couldn't have made a better decision. They are sleek, sexy, and extremely comfortable (more so than the 1460w). I got them this morning and haven't taken them off since. No need to break in, they just mold to your foot and feel ridiculously good. I'm an American size 8, but have to get Docs in size 5.

I loved the look of these boots, but was concerned about the care and durability of the flocked stripes. I contacted Doc Martens directly, and they said that no shoe care products should be used on these boots, and that they are solely a "fashion" item with limited durability of the stripes! I was shocked since this brand is so well known for its careful construction and great durability of their other products, so I returned them. At this price point it's just not worth paying for a fashionable look that is not going to last.

I opened the box and promptly fell in love. I was afraid that the shoes would make my feet look clownish but they are actually very compact. The floral pattern is stylish but still neutral enough to be worn multiple ways. I need to break in the boots, as they are a bit stiff but overall I am in love with them. And of course Zappos had fantastic service, I ordered on Wednesday and got the boots on Friday.

I have never owned a Dr.Marten boot and was slightly intimidated to order...as I am 69 years old, have an unusually high arch and always need a roomy toe box. The wild aqua color caught my eye, and with free shipping, what did I have to lose if they did not work? Well folks....I am so much "cooler and cuter" than I was last week now that I am decked out in these extremely comfortable and fun boots. Thanks Zappos! You gave me enough information to take the leap. Love the Dr. Marten Pascals....Perky Patty!

Docs have always run a bit larger, I am usually a 6.5 US and I ordered a 6 (4UK) These Pascals are exactly like the shown the photo. I love the finish (not too glossy and a fine matte) I've worn it around the house and so far it's pretty comfortable but expect the pain to come during the "breaking in" process. Very excited to match these with my floral print dresses. This is a must have!

This is my first pair of Dr. Martens in almost 20 years and I'm so glad I bought these. They're more comfortable than ever and I love the lighter style made for women. This gray color goes with a lot. I get compliments on these boots every time I wear them. My last pair of Docs lasted nearly ten years, and I expect these will hold up just as well.

I have always liked the looks of the Docs but this is the 1st pair that have actually been comfortable due to the other pairs being too wide. These fit my average width feet although could be more narrow in the ankles and heels. I wear 6.5-7.0 shoes and got these in UK 4/US 6. I put a gel foot liner in these which were from a pair of running shoes to give more support. No break in time, soft not stiff. Love the grey color and the classic Doc look is smashing! Thanks Zappos for the quick shipping, as always.

Ordered the Dr. Martens Pascal white Virginia and glad I did! These boots are so cute and stylish they go with so many outfits and styles. I originally wanted the 1460 white smooth but I like these so much more, because they're a little different from the originals. Great quality leather, but needs a little breaking in. All in all, great pair of boots!

These are the greatest shoes! I had a pair of 1460s in the smooth leather a few years back, and could not break them in. They caused me so much pain that I eventually got rid of them, but I have always loved the way Docs look so I decided to give this softer leather a try. And boy am I glad that I did! I honestly don't want to wear any other shoes anymore! From day one they felt broken in, and I have gotten no blisters or soreness at all, even with wearing them all day and walking around campus or a mall. The lead Virginia color is a true gray color, and it is very versatile. The shoes are so bouncy and comfortable, and the leather is so soft and supple. I can't say enough great things about them! I will definitely be back for another color eventually. I usually wear a size 8 or 8.5 in regular shoes, and I have the 8 (UK 6) and they fit perfectly.

So comfy, I can't stop wearing them day after day. Supple leather and bouncy soles means no break in. They look bad ass, what can a lady say? I plan on getting a red, perhaps a black pair. I work on my feet all day, and they feel great! Having no halfsies, you need to commit to one half up or down. As a US women's 7.5, I went w/ UK 6 (us w 8) and with medium socks they're perfect!

I own a restaurant and I was looking for comfortable shoes that were not sneakers and that are adult enough looking. I love my new Docs. I have had them all my life, but the Pascals feel like they are made for women. They are narrower than the other models that I have tried which I like because just because I am a size 10 does not mean that my feet are wide. The leather is lighter than other Docs, which I like for the summer, but it will be fine in the winter too with heavier socks. The new grey color is beautiful!I will be buying another pair of Pascals soon!

These are great shoes but customer service was bad with no quality control. These shoes are amazing. When you treat them with the wonder shoe basalm, the leather is so soft and supple, and the shoes are probably the most comfortable that I have ever owned. My first pair was from eBay, and I decided to order a second pair from Zappos. I have always liked Zappos. They have a great selection, and people rave about the customer service. Well, my experience with customer service was not good. I ordered a UK 5 (US 7) in the cherry red and received a UK 3 (US 5). When I checked the Zappos receipt that came in my package to see if I had made a mistake, I noticed there was no quality control section - that is, nowhere to indicate that my package had been double checked to ensure that I was receiving the correct size and style. I thought this was a lapse, a mistake. I was not aware that Zappos does not do quality control. In addition, when I attempted to exchange these for the correct size, there was no space to explain an error had been made. So I initiated a return instead and contacted customer service via email, telling them what had happened and asking them to please double check my order before it went out this time - basically, I was complaining because I thought that quality control had missed my package and wanted to ensure they did not miss it a second time. I received an email a short time later saying that they could not double check my order. That is all. No explanation. This was followed by another email some time later saying the shoes had shipped. I called customer service the next morning to see why no one could double check my order. They actually told me Zappos has no quality control. There is no system in place where people double check to ensure you are receiving the right size or even the right item. One person apparently does all the packing and there is no system of oversight - at least, this is the explanation that the customer service representative gave me as to why no quality control was indicated on my receipt and as to why my new order would also not go through quality control. Customer service rudely told me that I could not expect the entire warehouse to hold up production so that my order could be double checked when no one else's ever was, and that people make mistakes, and then told me if another mistake was made, there was a UPS 0.9 miles from my home. Because I insisted that it was unreasonable to expect me to keep taking off work to wait in line at the UPS store (because, as Zappos also clearly states, you cannot use the UPS pickup service with their return labels), they said they could send the package to customer service to be checked there. This will delay my package by 3-5 days, evidently. Customer service made it seem that it was somehow my fault that I had received the wrong size, and made a big deal out of how they would do this for me now even though they do not normally do this. They just kept repeating how the UPS store was not far from me and how people made mistakes. I had to stay on the phone with them for 30 minutes to get them to do anything at all. They really were not interested in dealing with my issue whatsoever. I will not be using Zappos again after this irritating experience. Never have I dealt with a single company without quality control, and I am surprised that one can even exist in this day and age. Even Amazon, big as it is, always has the name of someone who has double checked your package on their receipts. If a company is going to try to skimp on the quality control, you would think they would have better customer service than this.

These boots are fantastic! I ordered the gray (i.e., the Lead Virginia) and they are great. I work eight hours a day on my feet in a warehouse and these boots were super comfortable and required no break in time. The boots are a little roomy, so I would order down if you are a half size. The leather is super soft and supple. They are highly recommended!

The boots are fantastic. I tried the shoes in a US size 9 and they were huge. They were out of all willow pattern shoes, so I reordered a pair of size 8 willow boots. They look great. Just the pattern I wanted, fit perfectly and are amazingly comfortably on my problem feet. Plenty of room for orthotics and a deep toe box for hammer toes. I highly recommend them.

Love my Pascals! I wear a US Women's 7 1/2 and the 5's fit me perfectly. Got them in Shiraz, which is a really nice deep red that will go with a lot of my clothes. Ordered on Sunday, arrived that Tuesday - nice job, Zappos!

These were probably the best thing I've ever bought. I was hesitant at first because they were pricey for my budget, but they have been so worth it. I wear them constantly, and they are incredibly comfortable. Also I had read that Doc Marten's have a terrible breaking-in period, but I had no problem with these at all. I love them! I hope they last me years and years.

I ordered the Shiraz which is a nice dark red. The first day I wore them to church, and old lady told me she liked them. Glad it's not that "clown" look and actually looks feminine. Looks great with dark blue jeans. As for comfort, I normally wear 7-7.5 but a UK 5 is a good fit (with thicker socks).

Awesome! I wanted red boots and these are exactly what I had in mind. They are a dark raspberry color. They are a matte finish, not glossy/shiny like the cherry red arcadia 1460's (which I also ordered at same time which are also beautiful but very dark and shiny). As for fit, the Pascals feel and look exactly the same as 1460's, so not sure why they're called Pascal. Minor detail. Very comfy out of box and true to DM fit (which means I think UK 5 = US 7.5) If you are a 7 like me, order the UK5 and wear thick socks.

I love these shoes, they're awesome! Zappos was good with the delivery too, which was great. Size was a bit big for me, even with insoles and thick socks, so make sure you're careful with the sizes. I think I was probably a half size, which wasn't available, but other than that, they're fine!

I love the way these look, but I've found that this style of Dr Martens are more likely to give me blisters on my heels. I, like another reviewer here, wear a size 7.5 womens and a size UK 5 in Docs. I have these in purple and green. They are both darker in color and not bright, more subtle. On the issue of breaking in Docs - I have found that if you have to break them in, they either don't fit well or another style would be more comfortable. When I wore UK 6, I got blisters but when I went down to UK 5 it got a lot better, so if you wear a half size you might want to try going down in size, especially if you have narrow feet. For me, the thicker soled boots are more comfortable, maybe because the soles aren't as flexible and don't rub. This style has thinner soles so more blisters. I say, if they hurt, give you blisters, or rub, try a different size or style. It probably won't get better with further wear.

"Buffalo Blood Virginia" is an exciting poetic description of a gorgeous coral red color; just what I wanted!!! Dansko is my first shoe choice because the designers accommodate people like me with little fat feet: 5.5 C/D/W, and their footbed has toe and arch and heel support so you can wear them for long periods of time. Doc Martens Pascal has a few drawbacks, which if you are willing to experience, make this boot a worthwhile investment: first,although the toe bed was adequate for wide feet, the instep, just behind the toes, going toward the ankle, where the lacing started, was oddly tighter and smaller than the toe bed, which could cause abrasion; second, there was no arch, toe or heel support, making walking a lot in these stylish shoes an unattractive option; thirdly,though this is a boot, which due to the climate here in northern California, I associate with autumn and winter wear, the leather is extremely thin throughout (about 1/32nd of an inch thick), thus providing no barrier to the cold, and I need warm feet to feel happy. After trying it on 3 separate times, I finally faced that though I LOVE the color, it isn't a shoe I could wear happily, so returned it. Too bad!

Brands I'd also recommend: None at this time.
