I have never purchased Dr. Martens before but I love this style and was looking for something comfortable to wear to a festival. I'm a true US 7.5 and after looking at reviews and suggestions I sized down to a US size 7 (they don't carry half sizes). Even with a 7 they are a still a little large and require thick socks which is fine I guess. I'm left wondering if I could fit into 6 in this style but oh well. I have already worn them a few times and they are comfortable with the right socks, although heavy, which I expected based on previous reviews as well.
These boots are even better than I expected. Very attractive brown, contrasts nicely with the way-cool black platform. They are very heavy, but that should not be a problem. The leather is much softer than many Docs, so I don't expect a long, painful break-in period. I normally get a UK 7/US 9 in Docs, but went with the UK6/US8 in this model, and I am glad I did. Perfect fit!
Love the heel height. Definitely need thick socks while breaking in (I wore them with regular socks and had bruises around my ankles by the end of the day). I wear these almost every day.
I've wanted Dr. Martens for years but have always been too scared to spend so much money online for a shoe that I know runs pretty large & might be tough to break in. I wear an 8 1/2 normally so I ordered an 8 and they're absolutely perfect! SO comfortable (surprisingly, since I was prepared to deal with a break-in period) and they haven't given me any blisters. The quality is incredibly nice. I would buy them again in a heartbeat! I got dark brown and the color is super beautiful. Plus, this high sole is too cool. Love love LOVE.
