Nice firm foot cushion (think Dansko) but the heel space was too large. Also, not a lot of support if you have high arches. The ankle space was a little big for me as well.

These are the cutest shoes I have ever owned! They are made of a very soft leather and have a comfortable, true-to-size fit. What a great combination of style and quality construction. I love them!

I can sum up my review of these totally great shoes by quoting my daughter, a major shoefashionista since age 2 - " I would buy those shoes" - a very high compliment.

These are more like awesome leather sneakers rather than boots. They felt super comfortable but they are just too cool for me and had no support in the ankle. I sent them back because I know I'll never wear them, but I wanted to keep them. If you like leather high tops or super flexible boots, these are probably perfect for you.

I LOVE these shoes, I've been wearing them almost daily. I was so happy to be able to wear Dr. Martens--I had tried a pair years ago and fell between sizes, but now my feet have spread enough with age that a UK 6 (US 8) is perfect. I usually wear 8.5 US, but these were just right, a UK 7 would have been too big. I have a moderately high arch and had to put arch supports in them, and they actually fit even better with those (I have a skinny, bony foot.) Very comfortable. I love the chunky (but still supercute) look, and the leather really stands up to scuffs--you can rub them out with your finger generally. Super sturdy upper and deep tread on the soles.

These shoes are so light, comfy and the sole has the perfect amount of grip. I wear a size 9.5. I ordered 7 (womens 9) and there is just enough room for some thick wool socks. I guess this is something to consider if you are a size 9, however i have always worn a 7 in docs.

I love these boots! I feel like I'm going to go out and take on the world when I put them on. The leather is soft - not stiff like many other Dr. Martens boots. The fit is similar, though, to other DM's, so they are a bit more generous than your typical boot fit. The height is just right at mid-calf; they look great with skirts or jeans. The quality is worth the cost. You won't regret these boots!

Ridiculously uncomfortable shoes! I've been a Dr. Martens shoe fan for many years, especially for comfort & these were brutal to wear.

These docs are fantastic looking. Took me forever to find this style. I originally ordered my normal size but had to rerun those for the next size down. I usually always take a woman's ten, so that was unusual. Once I got the right size they were great. Still roomy, but broke in great after a day or so. Love love love these docs.

Lorne Monk Shoe

I love these shoes. Doc Martens quality and comfort with pleasing styling - especially the monk strap. I wear them with casual work pants every week, and so far, there isn't even a crease across the toe bend. You do have to be comfortable with a menswear look - while these shoes are attractive, they are NOT distinctly feminine. They are a unisex style. Sizing: In most other shoes, I wear a 9.5-10 women's. However, I always wear a 7 in Doc Martens. The Lorne Monk is exactly true to size, as always.

The first pair I bought were too short. I didn't return them but just bought another pair the next size up. They are comfortable and comparable to the original insoles in the Nunn Bush shoes. They also are priced right.

I love this stuff. I use it on all my leather boots and shoes (excluding suede and nubuck). A can goes a long way, even though I purchased three :) The balsam doesn't darken my lighter-shaded leather much, if at all, depending on the shoe. Very happy.

I wear a size 10 in US and ordered the shoe in Size 9 UK as it is the equivalent to a size 10 US. The shoe fits my foot perfectly. The leather is soft and of excellent quality. I've owned Dr. Martens shoes and boots for years and I wanted a softer leather shoe that would not take long to break in. I had surgery recently and I can't tolerate a harder leather that constricts my feet. The shoe's softer leather does not restrict the foot, breaks in great, has the awesome air sole that comes with all Dr. Martens and is an awesome shoe. I like how they used darker stitching at the sole too instead of the traditional bright yellow stitching in the classic Dr. Martens. The shoe has a nice insole and is very comfortable. They can be worn casually with jeans or would look great with shirt and dress pants. I would recommend these shoes to anyone! Great quality, great buy!

I think that Dr. Marten's are good boots and shoes because they come in different colors and designs. And they can be worn in all types of weather except the summer.

The leather quality on these boots is cheap! There is an exchange in the usual Dr. Marten lush leather here for cuteness. In my opinion, I am not sure if the trade is a fair one. I am on the fence about keeping them, I will continue to try them on for months.

This is the second pair of these same shoes I've bought. Latest pair 6 months ago. Both pair have failed at the sole, and the sole has split off from the shoe. Both pair failed the same exact way. That's what made overseas does for you I guess. Never ever again dr marten, your poor quality has lost a lifetime wearer of your shoes.

I'm used to Dr Martens being on the larger side, so I felt ordering my usual size 8 would work. It did, but per warnings from this site & other sites, people suggested getting a size smaller as they run large. When I received them, I did see that the 8s were rather big, so I figured a size down (7) would work. However, those were too small. My toes "hit" the end of the shoe. Too bad there weren't any 1/2 sizes available! A 7 1/2 probably would've worked. But 1/2 sizes aren't offered, so I decided to keep the 8s because I love these shoes. I've read that people get shoe inserts to adjust the roominess. Hopefully that'll help. If not, I'll just wear thicker socks. I tend to wear thinner ones to begin with, so maybe that's the ticket.

Gorgeous, gorgeous boots. I used to wear Docs in my early 20s, and now many years later, I'm the proud owner of these beauties! These do not need to be broken in. Previous docs of mine have had to be, but this is a softer leather. The color is gorgeous! Another website however is selling this same style and color for MUCH cheaper. Not sure why, because the other colors are more expensive. Same exact shoe though. I highly recommend these though and expect to wear these for a long time.

No, they're not as sturdy as the old UK-made Docs of yore, but they're still good quality. Run just a bit big, but that just makes room for thicker socks. Fantastic boots for those of us who want to add a little subtle spookiness to their outfits.

I'm not sure if it is too early to provide such enthusiastic praise for my Victor Chelsea Boots, as I've just taken delivery yesterday, but here goes: these are without fail one of the best pairs of shoes I've ever had the pleasure of wearing. Right out of the box, the fit was perfect. The quality and finish of the leather is excellent. They look great with jeans, and can be put into service as "dress casual" or just throwing on to walk down to the local coffee shop. Highly recommended.

This is my first pair of Docs in many years and I love them! They have a very 90's throwback style which is popular this fall and also gives me a pleasant sense of nostalgia. I bought the black floral style, they come with both ribbon laces that match the boots floral lining and a pair of plain black laces. I'm normally a size 6 1/2, but Doc Marten doesn't do 1/2 sizes, so I ordered the smaller size (UK 4/US 6) and they fit well. I do have narrow feet, if you have wide feet and are between sizes I can't say for sure if you should order up or down. As far as comfort, I'm only giving it 3 stars because I'm still in the process of breaking them in. If you haven't had Docs before you should know that they require an intense breaking in process and you may suffer from a few blisters while doing it. Once you have them broken though, they will last you for years because they are so well made (my last pair I wore for 8 years before retiring them.)
