These are a great pair of shoes and although I have only had them a few days I feel they will last many years. If you are looking for a hardwearing, fashionable and substantial shoe for work or otherwise then you can't go wrong.
A couple of issues however, I did on the advice of reviewers order the size below, I'm glad I did as they are one size bigger than advertised, so if you usually take a 9 order an 8 for example.
Secondly there is no Doc Marten logo visible on the shoe (unlike the picture), for me this is a bonus as I need them for work but just in case this is an issue for you. I would also say that the shade of brown is a lot darker than appears on the picture and in some ways you might not instantly recognise this as a Doc Marten shoe so its more for work purposes than for fashion.
