Great boot. Wish it came in an actual black though. The black greenland is dark brown.

Awesome boot. Love the fit and its light weight, which was refreshing compared to the old Dr. Martens I remembered with the heavy lugged soles.
The picture on Amazon is a little misleading. I was expecting a weathered black finish, but it turns out the Black Greenland leather from Dr. Martens is actually a weathered-looking dark brown.
I ordered them thinking they were black and would match my old motorcycle jacket. They don't and almost got returned because of it. I tried them on first to at least make sure I had the sizing correct. They fit and feel great, so great in fact, that I decided to keep them despite the color not being what I wanted. (I'm usually a 10-10.5 in American brands)
I'm currently looking for a similar pair with the air soles and open top eyelets in a true black to use on my motorcycle. For now, these have replaced tennis shoes as my daily work shoe. There was no loss in comfort making the switch and now I get better support, plus they breathe incredibly well. These were very expensive Nike AirMax's being replaced, so the fact that I didn't have to trade comfort for the more mature look seems incredible to me.
