I've seen alot of people asking about sizing for doc martens so I decided to make a thread about my experience.

Docs do not have half sizes and generally run a bit large. I'm usually a size 11 or 11.5 but for my boots I bought a size 10 or an UK 9.

At first the boots were very tight I'd say at the top on my foot near my ankle. It took me a month or two to break in the leather but they fit perfectly now.

I highly recommend using the wonder balsam they sale you. I believe they give you some when you purchase boots anyway. It really helps you soften the leather so you can break them in faster.

Apply about a marble size amount to a hair brush and brush it in firmly. The brush shouldn't be too soft or too hard. You should probably buy two brushes. One for cleaning the boot and another for applying the balsam

I'm on my feet alot and the insole they provide you is decent but I personally prefer a gel insole. I found some cheap insoles for about 10$. They do the trick and my boots feel like a pair of slippers. You probably should replace the insoles every 3-4 months depending on usage.

Everyone else is welcomed to contribute
