Help with sizing for those with half sized feet
on 27 April 2017
I'm a 5 and a half and ordered a 6 because I have a pair of Doc Martens 'Drench' boots in a 6 that fit perfectly, and a pair of 'Pascal' boots in a 5 that are a pinch too small. Unfortunately in the 1460 style the 6 is too big for me so I returned them and am currently awaiting the arrival of them in a 5 and shall review again once I have them. I called Doc Martens customer service before making the exchange and although I've bought these through a third party seller they were very helpful in explaining the different fits. The 1460 boots are unisex and therefore wider around the toe (this also somehow makes them longer too - I put sole to sole), so the advice is if you're a half size go up for Pascal style which is a ladies boot, and down for the 1460 which is unisex. It doesn't quite explain why the Drench fit me in the larger size when they're also unisex, but there we are. Hope this is helpful to someone. If in doubt, call DM themselves and they'll be happy to talk it through with you.
Now have the pair in a 5 and they're perfect. I used the Dubbin to soften them, then warmed with a hairdryer whilst wearing them to mould them to my feet and they're fantastic. Worn to death already and so comfortable
