Do Doc Martens run small, narrow, etc.?

Asked by poofandmook (17272points) October 12th, 2010

I’m looking at a pair of Doc boots, and “Ellen” style flats to add to my Christmas list, and I’ve never owned a pair. My foot is a size 6, but depending on the shoe, I have to go up to a 7 sometimes to fit because I have a wide foot. Should I be asking for a 6 or a 7?

In my experience, there is nothing like actually trying them on. I’d suggest a visit to the mall to avoid having to return a present if they don’t fit like you thought they would.

meh I’ve been to the mall so many times in the last two weeks shopping for a wedding outfit that I’m plum burned out on the damned rotten stupid freaking mall LOL

When I bought mine I got my normal size and they were perfect. They don’t seem to run small or narrow at all.

I bought mine a size too small per the sales person’s suggestion. The did not stretch out as much as he told me they would. They did stretch a bit though. At best I would suggest half a size smaller than your normal size. Maybe a six and a half?

I’d worn various styles of that brand for many years and they ran on the wider side and only in whole sizes so I always had to go up a bit bigger. I don’t remember them being comfortable or made from very good leathers. I do remember them being uncomfortable as hell and wondering to myself what Brittish people’s feet looked like for “comfort” shoes and boots to be built like that. Hopefully times have changed.
