I'm really not impressed with the new "refined" shape, i got the impression that the difference would be purely aesthetic i was hoping for a shoe which fit like a doc but which looked a bit neater. Unfortunately, the "refined" shape is at the expense of the fit. The toe area is inhumanly narrow and pointy inside as well as out.
This is very disappointing since my favourite thing about Doc Martens is that they - unlike a lot of other shoes - are usually actually foot-shaped, wider at the toe than the heel. These aren't, these are plain old typical shoe-shaped, with silly pointy toes, which does not resemble any human foot i've ever seen.
If you like the way typical docs fit, consider buying a larger size, or preferably a totally different style.
