4.0 out of 5 stars Love the look, but finding them a bit painful! 4 May 2013
Ok so these were a very welcome gift from a fabulous friend and they are the coolest DMs I have ever owned, and I've owned a lot! The length is mid calf for me (I'm very tall at 6ft) and the zip and laces combo is brilliant for adjusting the fit around the calf and ankle. The leather is much thinner than traditional Docs but not initially any softer, in fact they feel a bit crispy. A bit of wonder balsam goes a long way to soften up the leather though. Anyone familiar with Docs knows the break in period can be quite the challenge, and I'm suffering for the love of these beauties but not in the normal way. The foot portion breaks in easily, but beware if you have a high instep because these are quite tight in that area. I don't normally have instep issues but to absolutely fair I do have a slightly higher instep than the average person. They are loosening but boy am I feeling it as they do! The main issue is getting the top of the boot to adjust to my enthusiastically bouncy feet, again they are gradually getting there but I've had a bit of a flare up of plantar tendon issues in the attempt to make them bend to my will. Lots of other reviewers find these instantly comfortable, and to be fair I can wear them for eight hours without wanting to cry but personally I've found them difficult to break. I'd recommend the wonder balsam daily to help with the process, and I am finding them continuously more and more comfortable as time goes by. It's a testament to how very beautiful these are that I'm determined to keep going, because I love them, love them, love them! One last point, if you have a lovely juicy calf you might find these a close fit, I have a little juice in that area and the adjustment with the laces helped with that but they are pretty much straight up and down, and probably won't accommodate the curvier calf very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great boots, but scuff badly 16 Feb 2012
By NYChic
I have a pair of these and I've been wearing them nearly every day for six months. They are fantastic - comfortable, functional, and very cool! They're even pretty good at keeping my feet dry in wet Edinburgh weather. But, there are a couple of things which I think people should be aware of before buying them. First, they are kind of squeaky! It's not a big problem, but it's certainly noticeable in a quiet office or library... it's easily solved by applying some hand lotion to the very bottom of the boot's tongue, just where it starts to curve for the ankle. This is where the leather rubs together and squeaks. Lotion usually solves it for a couple weeks (and keeps the leather nice and soft!)

The bigger problem is the scuffing. These boots are not made of normal Doc Marten leather. Not surprising - they had to be thin enough to be embroidered, and the thinness makes them extra-comfy. But, the material they are made of scuffs really easily and as far as I can tell, irreparably. These are not normal "buff it out with some shoe polish" scuffs. It looks like there is some sort of black coating over the inner material giving it the black leather look, and when you scuff it, that coating just flakes right off. I think to look like new it would need to be painted over with something, but I haven't found anything I'm willing to paint onto my lovely Vondas yet! Shining it up does make the scuffs stand out less but they are still pretty serious.

Colour Name:Black| Size Name:8 UK D|Verified Purchase
I've waited all my life for this pair of boots to come along. They are brilliant. I love them. The perfect synthesis of brute boot force and delicate deceitful roses. Stunning and about time! I look forward to their next foray into the world of tatoo embroidery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabuous 20 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
I've been wanting these boots for months. I've now a pair in size 3 as an early birthday present given to me by a friend. I'm very pleased with them. They look gorgeous on and are true to size. These boots need some gentle wearing in even though the leather is relatively soft compared to other Dr Martens. The roses stitching is very intricate and feminine. A tip, if you've a high instep as I have, you may find it useful to pack newspaper into the foot to help the leather stretch a little. These boots look great worn with leggings, jeggings and the rose on the toe area give that added stylish look if worn with bootleg jeans. I've been wearing mine with summer dresses and they still look and feel really good. I like the side zip as this saves having to adjust the laces each time I put them on. I won't mind having to wear these boots in for a while and I know that once this is done, they will last me for years. These boots are well worth every penny especially with the lacing allowing you to adjust the calf width if worn over thicker jeans in the colder months. A size 4 would be too big and my foot would slop about in them but I can still wear reasonably thick socks in my size 3's. I'm a very pleased Amazon customer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and Stylish 12 July 2011
I like these boots. They're very eye catching and unusual (I know they're mass produced but I haven't personally seen anyone else wearing them yet). Softer leather than Dr Martens usually are - no blisters and pain so far. Comfortable given that I'm not used to walking in flat shoes/boots. One little gripe is that the embroidered rose design goes all the way through to the inside of the boot (they're stitched in, not transfers) and I found this scratchy. It irritated my skin leaving my ankle area quite red and sore. Solved with a pair of decent socks but I think it'd ruin tights. All in all, fab boots. Recommended.
