Excellent quality for the money. Not the same quality as the Docs from the 90s but hey, the world isn't the same either. Great boot for casual Fall and Winter wear, not a boot for the construction site. I will buy another pair for sure! Shipping was slow. I was once a VIP Member and am no longer. I miss that shipping expedience. Well done Zappos.

Fit true to size & color is great. Love them. Perfect for winter weather. No slipping & sliding with these on & fairly warm for everyday wear & tear.

I bought my first Doc's lace up boots, back in the 90's. Warning do not kick a log into a fire. leather kinds of melts? So bought another pair, same kind in the early 2000's. they have been good boots, they back stitching has came loose, so I will have to repair, myself. I will if i have to another pair. just love these boots and have had several comments.

Mmmm. I love me some Doc Martens. I have been wearing them since the 90's and they bring back some great old memories. I have stuck to the low cut oxfords lately since I am an office guy now. HOWEVER, after I saw Miley Cyrus riding a wrecking ball wearing nothing but her 1460 docs, I had to get a pair.. as gross as that was. I used to wear these back in the day, listening to the awesome music of the 90's in my late teens and early twenties. Oh the memories. Definately a keeper but go for the Black NAPPA leather rather than the smooth. It holds up better in my humble opinion.

Dr. Martens are my favorite boots. I have a few pairs I bought 20 years ago and they still look like I purchased them last week. Not only are they durable, but they are the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. Also, they never ever smell bad. I could wear them with no socks for a year and they still don't smell. They are worth every cent I paid and are always stylish!

I bought 2 pairs of the 1460s, one Smooth Black and the other Aztec. I bought the size I used to wear back in the 90s with my Docs. They are a little big but not bad, a thick sock took care of that, I couldn't have gotten them a size smaller. The black smooth looked so cheap, it looks like fake leather, UGH made in Viet Nam. On the other hand the Aztec looks good (still made in Viet Nam) but a different type of leather, a little distressed which I like, doesn't look fake. SO the black smooth are going back. It's all in the leather, I think the black greasy would look better but that is just my taste. I decided to get a black pair of the Dr. Marten's Vintage 1460s from another site as they are actually handmade in England like the good old days. Zappos is still my favorite place to buy shoes!

I wear a woman's 10, usually, and a UK8 is usually perfect, these in a UK 8 were far too big, I exchanged them for a UK7, which has been snug but definitely stretching out, SLOWLY. Regardless, I love them. I got these in "greasy" which is a good thick leather, I believe if you want to cut out on the wear-in time, nappa leather may be a good move.

These are the #1 best shoes I ever purchased from Zappos and I've purchased a lot of shoes from Zappos! I ordered the "Black Smooth/Union Jack". I get an abundance of complements every single time I wear them, without fail! Since the British shoe size is slightly different than USA sizes, I got a shoe foot lining.

These boots are nowhere as shiny or as marbled red as the photo. They arrived looking like a darker oxblood color rather than red, near black. On the upside, they show red on creases and scratches. Sizewise, they are seriously wider than expected. I bought the proprietary insoles and still had to put in my old orthotics and wear heavy hiking socks. Not a bad boot, will be great in winter.

Buy Solovair! Do not buy these plastic pieces of junk. Solovair shoes are amazing, and they are even better quality than I remember Docs being. From what I understand, they made the soles at the Solovair factory, but stamped them as Docs. The Solovair leather is supple and real!

I've been wearing Docs since the '90s. This is the second pair of boots I've gotten rid of. Anyone else have this issue? The heel cup top cuts into the achilles tendon. This is a serious problem. After walking all day it feels like a razor blade. I don't think it is confined to this style, as another style I had did the same. Don't get me wrong, these boots are beautiful! Amazing. Look just like the photo. But they are not comfortable. I know the pop sound as the ankle bends on the right boot would get to me over time, and the way the top of the boot digs into my calf. But right away I knew that breaking in wouldn't be enough. I'll be buying something not Docs next time. Wish they felt as great as they look, but I don't care how nice they are if they can't be worn all day. Now Keens are another story.

This is my second pair, the first were too small, but they don't come in 1/2 sizes. I went a full size up and the boot fits with a little bit extra room; however, they are still comfortable.

Other reviewers are right that the leather on these boots seems a lot like plastic. That's a bit unnerving, but the real problem with it is that the boots are super stiff, especially where the top hits my calf. I feel like I would injure myself walking down the street. So they're going back.

At first glance, these boots are great. They're comfortable and the shine is durable. The arch support is mediocre and you may want to get a slightly (1/2 size) larger boot in order to include a better insole. What isn't durable is the leather, which other commenters have noted. Within 8 months of purchase, I experienced cracked leather on the outsides of the toe caps, and the inside heel sheared from the sole of one boot. Since these were used primarily for commuting, I am disappointed with what appears to be poor quality leather in conditions that were hardly demanding. Shoe trees may have helped the toes by cutting down creasing but there's no excuse for the leather to come apart at the heel.

They come in UK sizes, not US sizes & I got a UK size 11, not exactly comparable to a US size 10.5, but I love it! The design is amazing! Told my European Facebook friends all about these sweet shoes!

These are awesome boots! I like the brand for quite a long time and they are my first brand new ones. It really takes time to get them fit your feet, but then they feel so natural and comfortable.

I have been wearing these specific Dr. Martin boots for over 20 years. They are incredibly comfortable, perfect for wherever you are walking/going and last a long time. Even if you are as hard on them as I am. The last pair I bought I have had with me when I have stayed in various hotels that offer complimentary professional shoe shining service and no matter how badly I have scuffed up the tips (that happens when you wear them when you are remodeling your home) they have come back the next morning looking nearly new. If you want stylish boots that will stay in style, comfortable no matter how long you are on your feet, and provide great ankle support these are the ones to choose!

Buy the Dr. Martens leather balsam with these. The break in will be easier, and it's good for them.

Got these because they're supposed to be great quality, cool shoes, comfortable etc. They are definitely cool, and of average comfort, though it did take a good month of wearing band-aids on my ankles to break them in. I agree with the other reviewers in that they aren't great quality. The leather is painted, not dyed, so in the first week of wear, a patch of the paint scraped off to reveal the tan leather underneath. It looks like mud on the shoe. I am now ~8 months into wearing them and they continue to develop cracks around the crease from walking. Which also open to reveal mud-colored bare leather. I'm all for distressed looking docs, but these uppers aren't getting distressed from wear: they're disintegrating. They still look cool, but I can tell that another week of wear will see a crack straight through to a hole. On sizing: I went with a size UK 4 (US 6) even though I usually wear a US 7, per the advice of other reviews to size down, and they fit.

Felt a little large, but Doc Martens tend to feel that way, and I've been cursed with narrow feet. Thick socks ought to do the trick. Look great, a little tough to break in. Glad I finally purchased these.

The fit and style were fine. The Chinese made DM 1460s felt cheap. The leather was thin with no lining or the kind of attention to detail you'd expect from Docs. I sent them right back. In my opinion they were not worth the price being charged.

These were my 15th birthday present. I received the 1460 Black Patent. I got a size up which felt great from my perspective. There are many reviews saying order up or order down. I think it is best to try them on for yourself just to see how they might feel, with your own 2 feet.
