I bought these boots to wear while riding a motorcycle, and because they have a proper tread for wearing in the dirt and occasional mud. They've been great. The cap toe provides additional protection against wear from the shift lever. The fit is really good, and they are more comfortable than they have a right to be, right out of the box. They have a very functional look. They are also decently waterproof- I walked in some deep puddles and my feet stayed dry.

Great stuff. I was reluctant to jump back into Doc Martens since the last time I had a pair was in high school and I remembered Docs being on the clunky side. I wanted a slimmer profile boot with extreme durability. I'm a musician and I'm on my feet for 5-6 hours a night and weather is always a factor as well. I had another brand of boots that actually came apart at the heel after only 6 months. However, these boots are amazing, they are super comfortable and get more cry every day. The color darkens with wonder balsam, but the leather is so well conditioned that the color comes back through. Awesome boots, and I feel like they will last a long time.

I am a female but could not find the perfect boots for women so I hoped these would work. I have been searching for months and months for a boot to replace my 10 year old Stephanie Kelians! I am normally a women's 9 and ordered the UK 7/men's 8/women's "9" but they are huge! I should have ordered the UK 6 which is the smallest size they come in but apparently they are out now. Ugh. Aside from that the boots are not really black at all. They are a brownish black. The style is so great though and I would have kept them if they fit me. True to all Docs the leather is thick and stiff and needs a good breaking in before they would soften up. I hope this helps, girls. If you are a women's size 9 definitely order the 6. Do not get the 7. They will be way too big I promise!

I bought these boots because I didn't really have any light boots for winter. That being said, I've worn these boots almost everyday since I got them. I use insoles with these boots so that coupled with their solid construction make them very comfortable. Overall, these are great boots, the color is great, (I have the tan ones) they are comfortable, and they seem like they're going to last a while.

These boots just arrived. Very nice looking and great style. The "distressed" leather looks great and gives the boots character. They are definitely a bit bigger than men's size 9 (US), but that's OK by me. I bought them for cooler weather so with thicker sock and an orthotic insert for arch support (the boots come with none, just a flat, lined footbed), they feel great. It seems that they will break in very easily since they feel quite comfortable right out of the box. I'm glad I got them.

Great boot. Breaks in fast. The shoe strings, at least the ones that came with my boots, are too short. Way too short.

Love Doc Martens and have been wearing 1460's for decades. The last pair I had was close to 10 years old before I wore a hole in them this year. Purchased the Franco as something different. They look great and are comfortable but after about a dozen wears, the heel started to separate from the sole. Very disappointing.
