These shoes are adorable and the leather is really a great quality. The toe box is a nice shape. I loved them and I wish they didn't run a size to big! The US sizing on this pair of shoes is not accurate and does not correspond to the equivalent European size. Here's what happened: I bought an 11, and when they arrived, they were huge...because they are a size 43. Zappos, please give us the option to see the European sizes along with the US sizes. I've ordered size 11 shoes from Zappos before that have been anywhere from a European size 41 to 43. That's 3 different sizes all claiming to be an 11. In my opinion, a true size 11 is a 42. 41 is more like a 10.5 and 43 is size 12. It's too bad because now the size I need is sold out...hope they come in soon so I can buy the right pair! The shoes get 5 stars, the size gets zero stars.

These shoes are definitely big, but this is something I've noticed with Doc Martens in general--they just run really big. I should have known, but I thought maybe the sizing was normal (it's been a while since the 90s alternative Doc Martens boom--they could have updated their sizing, right?) and so I have to return these. They seem to run 1.5 to 2 shoes sizes larger than you would normally wear, so keep in mind while ordering. Note too that these shoes are a little more polished than Doc Martens boots, but are still very casual in case you couldn't tell from the pictures.

I ordered these hoping to get a true fit but they are much smaller than the other pair I ordered with these. These are not as wide as other pair I ordered. Wish that shoes were sized uniformly. Loved the workmanship and style. Love my other Dr. Marten shoes.

I should have read the reviews more carefully before purchasing! I got excited that these were available in size 5 and just bought them immediately. It wasn't until I got them that I saw what everyone else did, these run very large. I feel like it was a full size larger -- at first I thought they accidentally sent me a size 6! Despite that, these are really awesome shoes; I'm just sad that size 5 is the smallest it comes in! This is the first time I've worn a Doc Marten shoe, and now I can finally understand the hype! They were so comfortable, so I'm going to try out other styles and hope that even if they run large, they'll fit better with thick socks or something.

Too bad the shoes only comes in full sizes. I desperately needed a pair of shoes to go with a dress for a special event. I had to stuff tissue in the toe box area and wear insoles from my athletic shoes.

I never thought I would write the following words: THESE DR. MARTENS ARE GOING BACK. In the (ahem) 20+ years I've NEVER had a pair of Doc that didn't feel like buttah on my feet. (I did avoid them those awful Japanese years.) I just need some simple black flats. These seems that they would fit the bill but they do not. Here are my complaints: 1 - A size 6 is a UK 37. This is (the only) thing I wish zappos did differently - tell us the UK size. This is not Docs fault, but you should know before you buy. I wear a UK 36 and that is not a size 6 in these. They have been in other Docs I've purchased from Zappos, however. 2 - They are painful across the top and sides of the toes 3 - They show some toe-crack which I am as opposed to as I am butt-crack and drug-crack. Say no to crack! 4 - The toe bed is very narrow. 5 - They aren't like Payless shoes hard on the sole but I'm not feeling the airware love at all. I know what you are thinking, because I thought the same thing. You are thinking, I am special. Dr. Martens love me. These will work. Save yourself some pain and grief and do not buy them. You will be sad. PS I love love LOVE Zappos and their return policy. I'm sending these back and hoping for better luck in some Born black flats.

Bought the Size 10 and they looked and felt like an 11 or 11.5. Sizing is way off. Cute shoe though...too bad.

I wore Doc Martens all the time 15 years ago and do not understand why I stopped wearing them! These flats are incredibly comfortable and even wearing them for the first time on an extended shopping trip they did not give me blisters (I was wearing tights, however). The color is fantastic (I wear a lot of bright clothing) and I may buy another pair in another color!

I absolutely love these beautiful comfortable shoes. Thank you reviewers for telling me to order a full size down. I wear s size 10 and after reading the reviews ordered a size 9. Voila! a perfect fit, They are definitely a full size smaller. The color is fantastic and it looks beautiful on my feet. I love them! In fact, I ordered another pair as soon as I received these. I ordered purple and blue and will order the pink. Not only did I love the shoes but the shipping was great. I received them within 2 days.

A great comfort shoe with just a slight edge to it that I really like. Too bad they did not fit in the toe area. There was a slight gap in the toe area. I believe it is my feet and not a real problem with the shoe. Must be designed for a more average foot. if they fit, they will look great and also, love the patent and cream colored sole.

This shoe runs big, trust me. I wear a size 10 and with many of the newer shoe designs I need a 10 1/2. I purchased this shoe in a 10 and it fit like an 11.

So, got these in a 6. I am typically a 6.5, so the fact that these run large is perfect for me. I own many Dr. Martens in a U.S. 6 and have no problem with them. These are a bit roomy for me; there is a tiny gap between my heel and the back of the shoe, but my feet do not slip out. Unfortunately, these are going to take forever to break in, and I have to take a few days off between each wearing. My little toe on each foot is mercilessly rubbed, and I'm left with the small beginnings of blisters. Hopefully this is just due to the unforgiving leather that will soften up after quite a few wearings.

Love the look of these shoes but the sizing is way off. I ordered a 7 UK/ 9 US size. No EU size was listed when I ordered but the box has an EU size 41 on it. I think that would equate to a 10 or 10.5 US size. They were way too big and had to go back. Maybe contact customer support to see if they have the EU size in their product description before deciding to buy is a good idea. That way you can get the right size.

Yep, way too big. Adorable, high quality shoe. Got it in pink. Reordering two sizes down. I think it will look fabulous with skinny jeans.

I can't say enough good things about these shoes. They are very well made, with good quality leather and much sturdier than most ballerinas. The leather is a bit stiff at first, and I would suggest a couple of shorter wearings to break them in. I wore them too long the first day (12 hours or so) and the tops of my toes told me about it. The second time I work them they were perfectly broken in and felt great. They are a flattering shape and I will enjoy them for a long time. I bought what they said was a 41 and an American size 9, even though I generally wear a 40 and am a 9.5. They fit perfectly, but I think I was lucky. The sizing does seem a bit odd.

So pretty. Unfortunately I need a 6.5 which doesn't exist. For the price I can't justify that much toe scrunching or having the flop off when I walk. But they look just beautiful - exactly like the picture. I have never worn Docs and was surprised and pleased that they are so sturdy and pretty wide for a B width.

Beautiful, classy, versatile. Leather is gorgeous. If you have a bunion, the break-in process is about two weeks for the leather in the toe box to work with your foot. I have arthritis in my left big toe joints, and the seam hits the painful area. I have been purchasing Dr.'s (that I still own/wear) since 1996, so for me the two weeks to break in that left shoe is worth it.

I should have read the reviews before I ordered. These run HUGE. I ordered the US size 8 and it felt like at least a full-size, if not more large. Cute shoe.

Cute, comfy and they're Doc Marten's...couldn't ask for anything more. Just remember that Doc's shoes run a bit larger than most U.S. brands.

I followed the advice of the other reviewers and ordered a size down from my normal 11. The size 10 definitely fit true-to-size; and it didn't fit me at all. I've returned them and will get the size that I normally wear. As for everything else - lovely. Good, quality leather and I know these are going to last me a long, long, long time.

Beautiful fit and look! I ordered a full size down after reading all the reviews but they fit perfectly! Arch is in the right place, they are not too wide or too narrow. This is the perfect black flat. I hope to order another color now too!

After reading the reviews I ordered two pairs in an 8, rather than my usual 9. They are a tiny bit snug but a good fit overall. I like the look of them, they are a bit more feminine that an earlier pair of Dr. Martens ballet flats, but I expect they will last just as long. The earlier pair is over five years old and still don't look worn.

These shoes are great looking. I stated they are true to size, But this is only true size if you order a size down. I am normally a 5.5-6, but I ordered the 5, and the five fit well. I did take note of everyone's review that the shoes ran large. These are my first Doc Martens after many years of fantasizing about them. The color is great and stylish.

The shoe is very cute, but very large! I normally wear an 8 - 9 and the 8 was way too big. I am going to return it and hope that the 7 is in stock. As of now, it is not. But the shoe looks great and just the right amount of support to wear on long trips.
