Right out of the box these shoes look great. I commute to work 5 days a week in the city. So it is very important to have a shoe I can depend on. I was happy that these did not have to go through much of a breaking in period if any. They're comfortable and durable. They run a little big in case you're concerned about half sizes, which I was. Great fit! Great shoe! Looking forward to getting another pair of Docs.

When it came time to buy a new pair of work shoes I decided on Doc Martens. I had a pair of 1460 boots that lasted 15 years and where the best shoes I owned. I decided on this shoe and am so glad I did. They look really cool and I got a lot of compliments at work and they feel great. Took a little time to break in but that is standard procedure with Docs. I highly recommend these shoes for both comfort and style.

Been wearing the wingtip shoes since 1996. I actually just received my 7th pair of black wing tips which I use for work. I also have a brown and a burgundy pair both wing tips of coarse for other occasions or when I go out. I wear them till they are an eyesore to my wife but every pair has lasted me no less than three years and the only reason they become an eyesore is because i wear the bottoms out. These are great shoes and I will continue to purchase them until I retire which is still 20 years away.

I like the shoes a lot. They're a bit different, breaking the mold of the typical office shoe. They're comfortable to wear all day long. I like the trademark soft and rubbery sole of the shoe.

Be aware that Dr Martens are now made in China as opposed to England...like they were back in the days. My husband gets to rock a little of his punk rock style at work with this Docs since they're more work appropriate than the boots.

Speaking from my husband's point of view, he's in love with these shoes. We have been looking for a casual wing tip shoe for 2 years now. They are extremely well made & comfortable. True to size. Go for it, if its' what you're looking for.

I have had a pair of Doc Martens in the past, so I knew what size to get. These shoes are very stylish and durable. I work on my feet and my last pair lasted 1½ years. I still wear the original pair on the weekend. I chose this model for its style.

These are good shoes. None of that strange yellow stitching around the edge, chunky soles. Not much to the interior. I added a pair of orange Superfeet, and now the shoes seem perfect. Comfy, durable, handsome, what more could I want?

This shoe is the perfect blend of classy with its wingtip design and sturdy with all leather upper and rugged sole. It has a wider toe box than most wingtips that I have tried. The sole is a bit chunkier than I would prefer, but looks good with chinos and jeans. In my job as a high school teacher, I want to look professional, but also be comfortable. These needed very little time to break in [about 2 days]. I wear them just about everyday at work. They can really handle rain and snow too. Give the construction, probably the last pair of dress shoes I will need to buy. Thanks Dr. Martens and thank you Zappos.com.

In typical Doc Marten fashion, these shoes take a few days to break in and conform to your foot. Once they do, however, they are amazing. Much more style and appeal than standard Gibsons, and they are far more comfortable than any other longwing style shoe I could find. My entire footwear wardrobe has just been reduced to these, NB 990's, and Merrell hiking boots.

Love these shoes. Stylish and comfortable as all Dr Martens. I wear a size US 11. So - just a heads up to those with wide feet...these fit a bit more like a dress shoe than other Martens...so - they may be tighter than you would expect. If you wear a thicker sock and have a wider foot, then you may want to order a size wider than normal. Otherwise quality and comfort are superior to most others.

This is my third pair of Dr. Martens. About fifteen or twenty years ago I bought the black & white version of this model. And then about ten years ago I bought it in a brown (greasy?) finish. They were all comfortable right out of the box and still are. In between I've bought many other shoes from manufacturers like Mephisto, Allen-Edmonds, and Nike but none feels as good as this model. I'd buy more, but how many wingtips does anyone need?

They are just what I hoped for. Built like tanks, and full of style. The leather is high grade and stiff to begin, but with conditioner and clear wax they are the bomb. I get on average 6 people per day comment, all positively, on the style and flair. They feel like they will last 10 years, just like my other Docs.

I'm a big Doc Marten's fan and actually were these shoes to the office. At eight years old, these are the oldest pair of shoes I own! I do a lot of walking and usually shoes just last a year. But these have defied the test of time and aside from needing a polish, still look brand new.

Love the shoes. Remember, they are stiff and will take some time to break in. The rim of the shoe rubs against the the protruding bone on the outside of my ankle. I am wearing a band aid at the rub spots until the shoes loosen.

Super cute, even in women's size 11. One very slight issue is that the tongue of the shoe is very stiff, to the point of making the front of my right ankle sore from poking my ankle all day. I think it softens with age/use though.

This is the third pair of this style of shoe I have purchased in the last ten years - first time in brown. I have always had to break in the shoes a fair bit but these had particularly stiff leather. I had to do a rather thorough mink oil treatment to get the leather pliable enough to not create blisters on my slightly larger right foot. Once that was done - these shoes are great! Stylish, good support and good durability.

This is my 4th pair of Dr. Martens shoes and I have to say this brand really lasts. However, for this pair of shoes, while style is still excellent, the quality is really not what it used to be. Outside they look great and well made but inside both shoes had insole lining that only went half way (only the back of the shoe covered). Inside the shoe, where the lining stopped, glue was visible all around the front of the shoes making them look unfinished. In addition, there was a big glob of glue inside one shoe. I am still keeping them but I would expect a lot better quality for the shoes that cost above $100. As for the fit, they run large, feel really roomy and require thicker sock. Would be excellent shoes for someone who needs wider and roomier fit.

So cute. So uncomfortable. Something inside near the side of your foot made them unwearable as soon as you put them on. Bummer! Returning sadly.

Way too large! And the leather feels very stiff and uncomfortable. I agree with another reviewer who mentioned a decline in quality. The shoe is quite hard to put on, at least initially. Perhaps when it's worn in it would feel softer... I ordered my usual size but my feet were swimming in these. Very cool looking though.

I love the look of these shoes, but, as other reviewers of Dr. Martens have noted, the ones manufactured outside of England show a noticeable drop-off in quality. The sole of my left shoe separated from the upper after only 5 1/2 months of light wear. I'm not talking about extreme sports here, just commuting to and from work by train. Zappos' customer service was awesome and replaced them; we'll see whether it was a one-off defect or a problem that replicated in the replacement pair.

I nearly returned these shoes because of their questionable quality. The partial footbed was peeled back due to not being glued down adequately. This was without ever being worn! An excess of glue was used on one of the shoes, leaving an unattractive residue that can't be taken off without stripping the leather. It looks like dried snot! But blemishes aside, they are still really cool looking shoes. Just plan on buying a super cushioned footbed to slip in there for comfort and support. There's more than enough room to accommodate it.

Leather is hard. The shoe takes some time to break in. Wear around the house a few times before attempting to walk long distances. Other than that it is a great looking shoe and once broken in comfortable.
