These are the best shoes for comfort at work. I am seven months pregnant, and I really needed shoes to slip on and give me comfort. My last pair of Dr. Martens are still around and in good shape, even at four years old! They actually look better with age. You will never wear through the sole. They only come in whole sizes, so I definitely felt that they were a bit too big in the beginning. Since it is winter, I wear a thin pair of high socks and an ankle sock on top. The size below was entirely too small.

Very stiff and difficult to break in. However, they are worth the effort. I love the style and have both black and brown. They will last years. Docs don't have 1/2 sizes and I'm usually an 8.5 but the 9 fits fine so perhaps they run a bit snug.

I bought a pair of these boots when I visited London, England in 1999. I wore them as I toured London and it was extremely painful but after they were broken in... they were the best pair of boots I've ever owned. I wore them regularly for 6 years. After 6 years they still looked great but the support was gone. If you don't mind breaking them in... I definitely recommend these boots.

Last (size) consistent with quality shoes. If Doc's came in half sizes it would be ideal. Very comfortable with good elastic gore that allows easy on & off while keeping (so far) a snug fit (unlike others that are either too tight to get into or too sloppy to walk in). The brand makes a difference. Better quality than I expected when I first saw the source. (That large country that seems to make just about everything.)

Shoes came in quickly and fit well. They were a little narrow, but after wearing them for a couple of days they loosened up and felt great. I wear them for 12 hours a day and have no issues with comfortability or construction.

Love these boots. I wear a 10.5 in NIKE, ADIDAS, & cole haan shoes. DM does not hald 1/2 sizes so I purchased the US11. I also purchased the DM insole which made the boot fit perfect. Without the insole, the boot was a touch big. The back of the boot, where the "air wear" tag is, dug into my leg at first, but after wearing the boots and breaking them in, that area softened and stopped digging.

I can't attest to how they fit but I bought these for my husband and they look really nice. A perfect balance between chunky winter boots and something too dainty or delicate for the winter.

Not like other marten's products, these are kinda adult. The color is a little bit dark, but it's really comfortable to wear not only for teens but also for adults.

Honestly the best item of clothing I've ever purchased. Hope its not too soon to say that. They were a little too big but some inserts fixed that. Totally stylin shoes that look and feel very durable.

This is one of the nicest pair of boots I have ever owned. Very stylish they get broken in easily. I used measuring guidelines to help me get the correct size and they fit perfect. Good for work or going out.

When I first put these on I did not think they would give enough support - the arch seemed too flat. But, after wearing them awhile they seemed great. I wear them to work everyday and my feet feel good at the end of the day. I did have to go up one size because they were just a tad narrow in the toe box.

I bought these for my 15 year old son who is outgrowing his size 15s. 15.5 does not seem to be an option, so we ordered the 16s. Clearly he fit was not exact but that's part of the burden of big feet. Overall we both liked the styling of these boots and my son says that they are reasonably comfortable.

I ordered the same size as my older Docs shoes, which fit me well. For some reason these new Docs are more narrow and are rubbing my toes raw. Breaking in hasn't helped. I should have ordered a wider size but didn't figure on the size disparity. I love the style and quality of these boots. I bought them mainly as a motorcycle boot.

I love Doc Marten's shoes, but I have to admit, having to lace and unlace them is a bit of a pain (I know). I LOVE these slip on versions. I put Superfeet inserts in them and wear them with medium weight cotton socks and they're GREAT. Scrunching the socks down to just above the top of the boot alleviates the rub point at the back of the calf that others have mentioned. They're a bit tight with he inserts initially, but they'll stretch with use. Love the style.

I gave these boots a moderate rating. I have had these boots for almost two years and wear them almost every day. I add some insoles to improve the cushioning due to shin splints from running too much. The boots are comfortable and have not deteriorated with the constant use. The only issue I would note is that the soles can be a little slick on some surfaces. I ride motorcycles and have had my feet slip on some smooth surfaces when putting my feet down.

I bought these boots as a replacement for my Dr. Martens Fusion work boots and have been seriously let down. While the quality is high the fit is terrible. I'm a woman with big feet (womens 11 mens 9.5, medium width) and have found a better selection of boots in men's sizes. As a mechanic I'm on my feet all day and have never had foot pain until I wore these boots. They're oddly narrow and have zero arch support. I was shocked that my medium width feet were pinched and my toes sore in these boots. I decided to try insoles and found the ones in these boots glued down so I had to scrape foam out to make room for the new insole which didn't help the foot pain. Unfortunately I can't return the boots since they're covered in oil and grease but I'm going back to the Fusion style which has a comfortable toe box, arch support and a removable insole no matter the cost.

These are the sorriest boots ever put on two feet. Shoe bed is so uncomfortable it would cause numbness in toes. Back of shoe rubs sores in leg. Shoe so narrow, pinched feet constantly. Would not recommend these shoes to anyone. I have always loved Doc shoes but this is the second pair of work boots I've had that are garbage. I literally mean garbage as the only thing I can think to do with them is to burn them to send them to hell where they belong!
