I've had my Gideon boots for just over 2 months. The break in period was very quick and the "cracks" in the leather add a lot of character. The boots are very comfortable and durable.

At first, I was concerned that the Dr. Martens leather balm would remove the weathered cracks in the leather. Fear not! The balm nourishes the leather and the cracks reappear after taking a few steps.

Like the other reviewer, the tongue in my left boot slides to the side. Maybe I walk funny?

I would definitely recommend these to anyone who needs a solid, stylish, and durable boot.

I've ordered and returned lots of shoes because sizing is never right. The same size fits differently even between different shoes of the same brand, let alone different brands, as well as between shoes and boots; the fact that Doc Martens are made in even- numbered UK sizes further complicates matters.
I really wanted it to work out with these boots so I ordered them in UK 8 and UK 9. The UK9s were too big, although I think of myself as a USA10. Loved the boots, sent them back, kept the smaller ones.

Like most good quality leather boots, they look better as they wear in.

I put a huge gouge in the front of one of them with a nail on accident and was a little bummed, until I put some shoe polish on there and it covered up the change in color between the surface of the boot and the inside leather, and now they look even cooler!

They aren't inky black, which I really like. They wear in and have some variation in tone.

Buy them. Now.

Great color, almost suede-like. These don't look too edgy which is good if you're a forty something like myself. long ago having ditched the club scene. They look great in khakis at the office and in jeans and fit as expected, although I do wear thicker socks. Good flexibility and reasonably comfortable to wear, but being a stiffer Dr. Martens, I wouldn't recommend extensive walking. Surprisingly light, too. Would get another color if available.

I loved these the second I opened the box. like all doc martens high quality and heavy duty. love the weathered look of the leather! It is nice in person. They are fairly comfortable to wear right away but with a little wearing in these will be perfect! get many compliments every time I wear them!

Totally flimsy. Stitching fell apart after two months and the glue in the sole disintegrated. Looks nice, if that's all you're going for. Expected more toughness from Docs.

The Gideon Boot by Dr Martens looks amazing! Stylish and rugged. The sole is tough, durable and holds its ground very well. I wear a size 9 1/2 US Mens and ordered a size 8 UK / 9 US mens. Fits my foot beautifully. The Black is actually a dark brown, don't be fooled. The outside is a nice leather stitched to a very durable man made product on the inside. This man made material is very very very stiff. Although I did put mink oil on the leather, the boot doesn't bend like it should and the designers could do well to put a couple of notches in the boot after the 6 inch high mark and make this boot flex. It could also use a little padding on the top, as this is so stiff that it wears off my skin...so be sure to wear tall socks. I can only lace the boot up the original 6 eyelits otherwise I can't bend my ankle forwards or backwards at all. I had much higher hopes for these boots.

These boots are now one year old now and they have held up great, despite being worn nearly every day. Great buy!!

I enjoyed comfortable and endure long walks use them on a journey of 15 days without problems, the only detail I did not like is that the left boot tongue moves inside the boot even though the put right is still moving but other than that I found very good

Me Gustaron Mucho son cómodas y aguantan largas caminatas las use en un viaje de 15 días sin problemas, el unico detalle que no me gusto es que la Bota izquierda la lengüeta se mueve hacia dentro de la bota por más que la pongo bien se sigue moviendo pero aparte de eso me parecieron muy buenas

Love the style of these boots. Already own a pair of the Tan Greenland so thought I get a Black Greenland pair. When I first opened the box I thought I must have been sent the wrong color. I realize that the Greenland leather has variations, but the entire boot doesn't look black. The black doesn't look anything like the black in the picture. It really is a dark brown. The laces are black and the sole is black, but the leather itself is certainly not black. If you need a pair of dark brown boots that are well built and comfy these are your boots.
