Unbearable torture machines, until I bought 1 size up from my usual. Then they were great. I broke in a few tight spots with a hairdryer (it works because they're not pleather, not leather). 100% vegan = 100% awesome.

PROS: They're Doc Martens! Sole is sturdy and gives some height. Vegan. CONS: Extremely and completely stiff--the sole, the sides, the top. Very tight toe box--could not move toes at all. No arch support. Very uncomfortable. Even after just trying them on, I could see where a wear crease would likely develop very soon and will probably crack the material in a short time.

Probably the most uncomfortable pair of vegetarian shoes I have ever worn. I really liked the vegan Earth shoes...when they were still making them...and have been spoiled by shoes that are so comfortable. These shoes, while looking nice, were actually hard to walk in. Some reviews said that they break in as you wear them, so I wore them for one day - I could hardly walk at the end of the day and I still have a recovering blister at the back of my heel where the left shoe was rubbing. Too late to return them - where are the good-looking comfortable vegan shoes for men?

After a month or so I would say these shoes appear to be quite durable. I was a little unsure about that at first considering that they're made from synthetic materials. As for sizing, even though I've indicated that these shoes are true to size I say that because I'm not all that familiar with Euro sizing. I've never purchased Dr. Martens before, however I do own a couple pair of Eccos that, although they aren't in UK sizes they do come in Euro sizes, and they fit me fine. Since I generally wear a size US 10.5 I first tried the Dr. Martens in a UK 9 but they were too tight. So I then got UK 10s and they fit okay but they aren't a snug comfortable fit that I like. The 10s are just a tad too loose but they're workable. This may be due to the synthetic upper that just may not be as form-fitting as leather can be. But as someone who has had a totally vegan diet for 20+ years I do (try) to be as vegan as is practically possible with what I wear. In as much as these shoes may not fit my feet perfectly they are quite comfortable for my head.

Brands I'd also recommend: Earth, Clarke, Ecco

I bought these shoes for my husband who prefers not to wear leather. I've been buying cheap man made dress shoes for him and he wears them out quickly. These are made much sturdier (and also more fashionable) and will last as long as three pairs of the cheap kind. Worth the price for sure.

The shoes were a little snug at first, but after a short break-in period, they feel great and provide tons of support. I also like their versatility; they look good with jeans and slacks.
