I love these boots so much, but I had trouble figuring out the sizing. After reading reviews and checking many sizing charts, I went with the 8 UK/M 9 - W 10 M US, as I usually wear a 10 in women's shoes. My advice is to size down. The tongue of the boots say they're a 9 men's/10 women's in US sizes (which is what I ordered), but a 9 in men's shoes corresponds to an 11 in women's. These boots are more true to the men's sizing, so the supposed women's 10 fits more like an 11. I have way too much room in them. Docs are supposed to fit a bit tightly so they can stretch and conform to your foot, but I have a good inch and a half to two inches of space in the toe.

Tl;dr: If you're a woman buying these boots, get the UK size 3 sizes down from your US size. I.e., if you wear size 10, get size 7 UK and so on and so forth.

This is my second time buying these exact shoes. I'm a women's size 7 and I got US Men's 7 and they are a little big and clunky, but I like them a little loose. Next time I will probably order a size down.

Fit is great! Great build. Colour true. Will be buying the Black version soon. It is quite stiff & needs to be broken-in, so be aware of this. I've used mine 3 times. Just love the pair!

Dr. Martens boots are a classic. Yes, they tend to run large (so order one a bit smaller than your usual shoe size); and yes, they take a while to break in. But once they are broken in, they are a great boot. Comfort, support, and a certain "style".

The real problem was the vendor - Elite Hero. I appreciate and support small business people trying to make a start, but I expect them to be honest and professional in their business conduct. The amazingly long time it took to get my order from them leads me to believe that as they receive orders, they then go out and purchase the item you ordered and resell it to you. After waiting over a week for any indication of my order status, I contacted them and was told that they checked their warehouse and the boots were in stock. My experience leaves me skeptical that they have a "warehouse". When I received my boots, they were too-big, so I returned them and requested an exchange for the next smallest size. Instead (and to my great - and unpleasant - surprise), they issued me a refund for a fraction of the purchase price - told me it was a restocking fee, they provided an almost incomprehensible explanation for why they gave me a small refund instead of doing an exchange as requested. I love my Doc Martens boots - but I cannot in good conscience recommend Elite Hero at this time. I hope if they read this review, they will reconsider their approach to business. If they want to play with the big boys out here on Amazon, they have to up their game.

Though I feel bad at the first try of the boot(hard, very hard), but after about
half a month's wearing, it becomes soft and fits on your foot and legs.
Great!!!-

I bought these because I love the quality Doc Martens make for a boot. Though these are made in China I did not notice much of a quality difference like other cry babies might spew about the UK made boots. If they want to pay $230 for a pair of boots go for the UK ones at this point you are paying for the name.

I rated it 4 stars because of two issues I had with these boots.
1. The right boot tongue was sewn in crooked so it moves off to my far right side. My quick easy fix was to take a lighter and heat up some needle nose pliers and crimp it into place.
2. My boots came scuffed so I had to polish them before I got to wear them.

When it came to breaking them in I did it hardcore. I work them to work where I am on my feet for 10 hours a day and wore them for two days tightly laced so the break in period was quick for me. If you are a casual boot jokey then you might want to fill these up with water for 30 mins. Then dump them out put on two pairs of socks and tie these bad boys on. Wear them like this for 8 hours. After 4 hours take them off. Dry your feet with alcohol and foot powder replace your socks and put them back on. After 8 hours let them air dry for 24 hours in front of a small fan. This will fix your complaining about your delicate little feet.

I strongly suggest keeping them clean and polished. This will improve the life time of the boot by a year or two. I know this because I wear combat boots A LOT.

These were purchased to replace a pair of 1999 Dr Marten 1490s. I was supprised to see that the boots are manufactured in China (minus the sole) and not England. I found through some research that compleate English made boots are still available for purchasem but for almost double the price. They are holding up well with daily use. It took one week to break them in so not to get blisters anymore. The laces are not of the best qulity and I am prepared for them to break soon, but othere than that, so far, so good.

I bought these for my fiancé for Christmas 2013. He is obsessed! I recommend getting some sort of shoe polish as well. I didn't buy the dr marten shoe polish I got a different one from amazon but it works amazing on these beautiful boots. We live in VT and the winters are touch & they are lasting and lasting, haven't knocked or dinged them once. They came on time as expected from the shipping & the boots are veryhigh quality & very durable and my fiancé couldn't have loved them more. Im so glad this is the gift I got him because I can tell he'll have them for a very long time because he literally sits and shines them atleast 1x a day. haha.
