I have always liked the style of Doc Martens 8-eye boots and have over the years had several pairs. I would have to say, whether you are a vegan or not, the vegan boots are just better. The synthetic leather is softer than the real leather that it uses on its regular boots and shoes. The boots are easier to put on and take off and they are more flexible and more comfortable. That no animal product is used in their manufacture makes them just that much better.

Material looks okay at first and was definitely cherry red, almost purple, but creased immediately. Foot box fit true to size but ankle/upper is super wide with lots of overlap, making these unwearable laced up (I think my ankles are "normal" sized).

These are awesome! They are the most comfortable boots that I have worn. The non leather is so much more supple and comfortable. Cruelty free! Who can beat that? I hope to order the brown pair too! And Zappos is the best! I would buy everything from them if I could.

I couldn't ask for a more perfect boot. I have never owned a pair of Dr. Martens but these are very comfortable. They also came true to size. I wear an 11 in most shoes like Toms and skate shoes and I wear a 10 in converse Chuck Taylor's. I bought a size 11 and I have a little room to breathe with an exquisite fit. Pick these up!

I'm so happy that Dr Martens is making vegan shoes and boots! I haven't worn Dr Martens for many years, but was inspired to buy these boots. So far, they seem really comfortable and well made. I do wish they were more red - the color is almost brown. But I'm really happy I bought them, and hope that Dr. Martens will expand their vegan line so I can get a pair in another color.

Was so happy to see vegan Dr. Marten's, but I ended up sending them back. The quality was great but the cherry red really wasn't red at all, but brown. These also run a full size large. Hopefully they will offer more vegan varieties soon.

While I was proud to find that Dr. Martens makes a vegan boot, I wasn't so happy with the overall comfort. I gave them a month, knowing that docs typically need a long break in period, but found that the front of the soul was breaking in, contrary to the heel. I didn't realize initially, but this changed my entire posture and my lower back started to hurt. They would be great if the heel wasn't so hard.

I love these boots. I grew up wearing docs and have been meaning to get another pair as an adult. I live in combat boots these days and finally was able to put aside my fears of breaking in a pair of leather doc's by getting a pair of the vegan ones! BEST DECISION EVER! They are super soft, and did not need weeks of breaking in. They were perfect right out of the box. They felt a half size larger than marked , I wear an 8.5 and the 8s fit perfectly.

I wear a US woman's 8 1/2. The UK6 was too small, the UK7 was too big. So sad they don't have half sizes. They look like they are made very well and the vegan "leather" looked great. Just really disappointed there is not US woman's 8.5 equivalent.

I love that I can now wear Docs again, without them being leather. I have had these for almost two years now, and they are still well worth the price. The material is still intact, no cracking or color rubbing off (as I have experienced with some of my Docs in the past). The toe is a little more narrow that I would like (less rounded than, say, Grinders). I usually wear a 9½ (US women's), and the 7 fits perfectly, with a little room even.They took a few weeks to really wear in, but now are some of the most comfortable boots that I own

Could not be happier with these boots! They feel very comfortable, although they get creases near the toes after a few days of wear. They clean up very well, and the creases become a lot less visible after a good polishing. Well worth the money.

Fantastic. Beautiful boots. Solid, durable material. I've gotten several compliments from strangers while wearing them. The color is very appealing in its subtly. Overall, a classic boot. And it's vegan! Here's to hoping that Dr. Martens exponentially expands their vegan line of shoes. How awesome would it be get some of their other shoes in a vegan version?!

These are great boots if your job requires you to have work boots but doesn't require them to be steel toe. They feel very sturdy all around your foot. I ordered mine a little too big, so I would say whatever your size is, pick the size smaller. For instance I am a 7 in mens, so I would need a 6 for these boots. I just have been adapting to the bigger size and have not had an issue. Great alternative to wearing a cow!

I was so worried getting these shoes, since they were my first Dr. Martens, but I can honestly say, they are the best and most comfortable shoes I've ever had. Didn't even get a blister breaking in, maybe some red marks that were gone in a couple of hours. SUPER COMFORTABLE I LOVE!

I love these boots! I can't wait to wear them everyday. I am a 7.5 and ordered the UK 6 knowing it would be a bit spacious. I put insoles in them to make up for the extra space. They are soooo comfy with some Vionic insoles.

I had to exchange these for a full size smaller than normal and they fit perfectly. Exactly what you would expect from Doc Martens but in vegan. No one can tell they are the faux leather, except for the tab color being full yellow. I actually prefer that so people are aware that this vegan is not wearing the real leather ones. I did put a insole in it because I left my heel was not supported well but that is it. I have had them for over a year now and they have kept up great.

I bought these Docs for my daughter about two years ago, and she loves them!! She's 16 now, a junior in high school. She wears these boots nearly every day, year round -yes even in the summer!! They're becoming a bit worn out so we're looking for a new pair. It's been awhile since I've ordered from Zappos since we live so close to a lot of shopping, but ZAPPOS IS THE BEST!

I'm not going back to traditional leather Docs after these! They are more comfortable from the start - NO break-in time, as the man-made materials are more pliant than new leather. The cost is the same, they LOOK GREAT, and I just walked a mile in them in pouring rain and the only part of me that's dry is my feet. LOVE THESE BOOTS!

Great vegan boot. Very sharp. Soft and comfortable right out of the box. No need to wear the skins of dead things.

I thought that since they were vegan they might not be as comfy and soft as leather. I was wrong! These are as soft and comfy as the leather ones! :) Highly recommend them.

I am in love with these and have worn them pretty much daily since I got them. They are lightweight, soft and pliable and were comfortable right out of the box. I love wearing them with tights and dresses just like I did back in the '90's! So great that they are vegan. I get compliments on them all the time- people can't believe they aren't leather. I wear an 8.5 but ordered an 8 and they are perfect.

These boots are unbelievably comfy. Thought my Frye boots were the most comfy shoes I owned...until I got these. I wear these almost every day now. They break in fast and look great. Love that these are vegan, too. Zappos shipping and customer service is fantastic - these arrived at my place the next day. I wouldn't order shoes from any where other than Zappos!

SO happy with these boots! After going vegan a couple of years ago and getting rid of all leather, my work boots were the last thing to go. I tried cheap man made boots from payless which were a disaster, killed my feet and didn't let my feet breathe at all. When I found these Dr. Martens I was so excited because I knew they would be high quality, and it's also exciting when an iconic brand recognizes the vegan community, as there is definitely a growing demand. As with all boots, they took a few wears to comfortable break in, but now they are very comfortable (I did add some Dr. Scholl's gel inserts though) and sturdy. Not only that, they look good, I've actually gotten compliments from my co-workers AND the general public. Highly recommend this product, a godsend for us working class vegans!
