Dr. Martens 8053 Reviews:


These have been my steady work shoes for 3 years and 3 months. They were comfortable out of the box, but with constant wearing and some conditioning have become uber-comfortable. The original insole gave out within 2 years, but some Dr. Scholl's gel-pads have done well to replace them. At long last I am looking for replacements. The padding that goes around the ankle on these is the weak link. It is not leather, but rather plastic and it is starting to crack and flake away. I think for my next purchase I may get a pair of 1461's that do not have the ankle padding feature. I think these shoes were an excellent value. Overall, I have been extremely pleased with these shoes, with the exception that they eventually wore out. Is it too much to hope for them to last forever?

I work at a large, somewhat conservative, software company and wear these in the office with casual pants. Love them! They are about as well built as you can get. Beware, they definitely run large. I usually wear 11 1/2-12. Here I went with UK 10/US 11 and it fits just right. I haven't worn an 11 since high school- and I don't think I'm shrinking.

Like the shoes, however if you are looking for the more original Doc don't go for the butero. Also have the shoes from about 5 years ago and the sizing is marked a size down from was it was then, so think about ordering smaller if you are looking at your old Docs for sizing. Other than that, love the shoes.

Yes, the shoes are okay. They're not the quality of the Vintage line, but with sole insert replacements they work out okay. The tread does wear out fast. I get less than a year out of them working on concrete. For summer shoes, I choose Dr. Martens, for winter boots, I choose Wolverine. Works for me.

This was my first pair of Dr. Martens shoes. They are as comfortable as they appear, broke in very quickly and are very well constructed. I wear them a lot and it seems like they are up to the task.
