they're definitely on the chunky side...especially compared to a florsheim kenmoor but i don't think they look overly big while on.

the pics on onlineshoes i think are the most acurate for judging their proportions:

Yeah, I mean it's a given they're gonna be big, but it's hard to tell what the general shape is because a lot of pictures I've seen online are taken from pretty extreme angles. If they're not too over the top I think I'll snag a pair sometime soon.

Those are incredibly hideous.

Is the sizing exactly the same for the made in england and made in china 1460s?

As far as I can tell there are no shops in Australia where I can try on the vintage made in england boots so this week I'll just try on a pair of the made in china ones and then buy online.

I recently bought two pairs online for sizing, and I was going to send back the one that didn't fit. I went with the larger one, and after breaking it in for a week or two, it gave too much and now its hard to keep tight and the right heel slips, so I need to wear the smaller one and try to sell the big pair.

But I love how they look and they are a lot more comfortable than a pair of boots I had before. And they add quite a bit of height.

you can pad out the larger ones easier than you can break in a pair of docs that are too small. I can't imagine the pain of that especially if they're MIC boots. shit. there will be blood.

Just get an insole or tongue or heel pads or something and ditch the smaller ones.
post #191 of 277
i have an insoles and heel pads. the left foot is okay, its loose at the toe from being large but the heel sides are okay, but the right, even with the heel pad and insole, is too loose at the heel. after trying the smaller pair again, it feels fitted but not tight. and there is plenty of toe space even on the smaller pair. in hindsight, i'm not sure why i went with the larger pair. As an update, I messed around with insoles and used a pair from boots, and they made a difference with the heel slipping, which was my biggest problem with them. So I don't need to switch boots anymore. And doc martens still look awesome. What would be better for polishing/sealing them, the dr martens wonder balsam, or sno seal?

I'm having a lot of trouble deciding between two sizes. I tried on both a size 8 and 9UK today, the size 8 was quite tight in some spots, especially at the bottom of the tongue towards the front of the boot, it was digging into my foot a lot there. How much do the boots stretch after breaking them in? The size 9 felt quite comfortable but my heel was slipping a bit even with the orthotics that I need to wear. I feel like after breaking in this size they would end up being too big.
post #193 of 277
^^ I would go with the larger. I suppose at some point you'll develop a callous if you go with the smaller size but I find Docs feel better to wear when they arent so tight. The lack of half sizes often means having to go up to the next full size
post #194 of 277
Yeah it's a shame there aren't half sizes, I think the 8.5 would have been good.

It is hard to tell which is the better size because I just have no idea how they will feel after a few weeks of wearing them. I'd prefer not to have to exchange them for a different size too since I am buying online and international shipping costs are quite high.

I just cant help but feel that the size 9 would end up being too big after breaking them in. Do they stretch a fair bit?
post #195 of 277
I always size up to the next full size so I couldnt tell you if they stretch much

Ideally I'd be a UK7.5, but I go with 8 as the 7 is a bit too short lengthwise
