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.

I'm extremely picky about my shoes, and I've never ordered shoes online before, and I'm not sure that I will again. I only did because I'm trying to wear less leather (I don't eat cow, so why wear it?), and I couldn't find a good local source. I figured with Doc Martens reputation for comfortable shoes, I'd be okay. I don't know where that reputation comes with. 1. These shoes come with a couple mils of padding under the heel. That's it. Plan on ripping it out and putting in a proper insole. They run true-to-size (for me at least) as they come, but are too small once you put an insole in them, so you probably want to size up. 2. The back of the shoe -- like most men's dress shoes -- has a sharp edge that destroys socks and cuts into my upper heel. This is the main problem I have with most dress shoes, but I thought since they were Docs, they'd be different. No such luck. I wore them around the house for a couple days without incident, but when I finally thought they were comfortable enough, I wore them out and after walking literally a mile in them (that's my walk to the train), I was in pain. Unfortunately, by the time I got home at the end of the day, they were not fit to return. Maybe most men have heels made of leather, and having any sort of shoe is an improvement over going barefoot, so they aren't as picky as I am, but I just feel like I have another pair of shoes to add to my failed footwear collection.

Very stylish and comfortable. Kind of wish they were not vegan friendly, just not the same.

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.
