5.0 out of 5 stars I was a Doc Marten virgin! 22 Dec 2012
By stevieb
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:10 UK|Verified Purchase
I needed some new slip-ons and was going to buy another pair of 'Hush Puppies' (good shoes), but they were out of stock in my size.
These were a bit more expensive and being the age that I am had always associated them with skinheads.
But after looking around the shops at the quality of shoes these days (bloody awful) I thought I'd give them a try.
They are wonderful and worth every penny, excellent quality and so comfortable, even on day one.
I love them!

A week later. OUCH!
I have blisters on my heels!
One would think that part of the design process would be in wearing them.
The 'lip' on the heel really digs in.
Been trying to soften them (Vaseline Intensive Care, well leather is skin!) and it seems to be working.
I have now bought another pair of Hush Puppies (they were on sale).
Wish I had done that in the first place. Hush Puppies have padding around the heel.
These are good shoes and well made but soften them up a bit Doc!

Another week and happy again.
Bought some Collonil shoe stretch, works like magic! Collonil Stretch Shoe Boot Leather stretcher 100ml
Still like the Hush Puppies but think I will grow to like the Doc's more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Men's footwear 30 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Dark Brown| Size Name:9 UK|Verified Purchase
My order was first class in terms of delivery and well packaged, zero criticism on that score.

It is perhaps too earlier to give 5 stars as to the durability ( ownership less than one week ) of my Dr Marten shoes, but they appear to be well made and reasonably inexpensive in terms of daily footwear and perceived quality. However, I would caution on two points, one, they may feel tight at first across the shoe since the shoe size is as expected, but they do require wearing in for a short time to improve wearable comfort. The second point, the shoes although described as brown are in fact almost black in colour, bitter chocolate colour, or 70% coca bean if one thinks of a chocolate bar.

2.0 out of 5 stars Faulty 5 Nov 2013
By Tim
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:9 UK|Verified Purchase
Nice shoe comfortable, but had to return two in a row as both had moulding faults in the sole near the toe on the right foot. Maybe a duff batch?? Will not be ordering any more from Amazon.

Brilliant returns service via DPD, collection day given when requesting a refund, one hour collection window given by text message on the day of collection with the option to defer to another day. Returns label and receipt provided by driver.

1.0 out of 5 stars Substandard Product 26 Oct 2013
By Niall
Verified Purchase
I have used these shoes in connection with my work (dog walker) for the last six months from new. Last week, when checking the sole of one of them, I noticed a small tear in the sole. That's effectively the death knell for the pair as water will now start to get in to the interior of the faulty shoe and walking around with one good shoe is somewhat impractical.

When you buy a pair of DMs with an RRP of around 90, I don't think it unreasonable to expect you get at least a year's wear out of them without problem. I got six months!

Update (May 2014):-

Further to my initial review, Amazon kindly and efficiently replaced the original faulty pair of these shoes with a brand new pair.

Within six months of use, one of the replacement shoes developed exactly the same problem as the shoe from the first pair. A split appeared in the sole, which then developed into a small hole, letting water inside the shoe, rendering it useless.

Each pair of these shoes has lasted around six months before becoming unfit for purpose. Shame on the manufacturer.

Thankfully, Amazon again came to my assistance, refunding my original purchase price after I returned the second pair to them. Also, superb service by their returns courier DPD.

I did contact Dr. Martens via their official website when the first pair of shoes became faulty. Their response was very much couldn't care less, with a promised contact to my initial email never returned. Poor customer service and in my experience, poor shoes. Pity, as the company used to make real workhorselike pairs of shoes and boots. Never, ever, will I buy their products again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lace free 8 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:10 UK|Verified Purchase
I am now wondering why I have not brought a pair of Dr Martins for over 20 years! Excellent build quality and so comfortable to wear. I was trying to find a pair of shoes that would slip on as easily as trainers, yet not have to deal with laces or walking around with one undone. Perfect compromise. Fully recommended.
