These were an excellent choice, since I've always wanted Docs, but hated the shininess and yellow seams. The black matte, slightly textured finish on the boot is super-fashionable and will surely wear well with anything. From dresses, to jeans, to leggings, to shorts-you can definitely dress these up or down very easily. They feel slightly stiff, but they are still new, so they just need some breaking in. Nothing crazy though, just a little wear will do the trick. Otherwise, they are true to size and are crafted very well. I bought a size US 6 and I normally wear a woman's 7-7 1/2 (my feet are slightly on the wide side), and they fit like a glove with even a little room for a medium weight sock for colder weather. They are actually much more comfortable than I expected. Thanks to whoever I spoke to at customer service prior to ordering for also helping me with sizing, as well. :). Shipping took about a week, not too bad. Overall great experience. Ow I'll definitely be shopping here again.
