Aside from the ones I have mentioned above, there are other girly styles that you can check out. I have listed all 13 of them in this article so you don't have to stress yourself by comparing them using different tabs.
Devon Heart Leather Platform Boots is one of Dr. Martens bestsellers! It has a towering platform sole and it is made of milled Nappa leather— you can bank on its durability, plus it feels supple and soft to the feet even on the first wear.
In fact, most people claim that it isn't hard to break into these boots. They're very comfortable even right out of the box.
The main feature that makes the Devon heart very feminine is the heart-shaped buckles attached to the woven straps. This pair of boots also come in black, pink, and white colors, so the buckles really stand out.
In addition, it has a padded tongue and quarters so you wouldn't have blisters after hours of wearing it. Just like most classic Docs, the Devon is also Goodyear-welted, heat-sealed, and stitched using the iconic yellow thread.
Just one look at these rugged boots and you'll surely fall in love. Leona Women's Vintage Smooth Leather Heeled Boots combines a rebellious style with a feminine touch so it really looks classy but intimidating.
It uses Vintage Smooth which is a retro version of DM's smooth leather, so you'll see a subtle grain effect and a contrasting base color.
Moreover, it has a sleek silhouette and antique-looking brass tunnel eyelets. Every detail of the Leona is empowering to its wearer.
Similar to other DM boots, this uses an Airwair air-cushioned sole that is made extra towering, grooved sides, visible yellow stitching, and a scripted heel-loop.
The sole is also of high quality— it is slip, oil, and fat resistant. Plus, it has superior abrasion.
The 1460 Vonda shouts feminine all over. Right off the bat, you'll see that it has embroidered rose details that run on the side of the boot. This is actually Dr. Martens iconic 1460 boots but it is inspired by the 14-eye 1914 Vonda.
Unlike other classic boots, the 1460 Vonda uses a lightweight leather called Softy T. It is full-grain, but is treated by DM to make it supple and soft.
On top of this, the 1460 Vonda has Airwair bouncing soles, 8 eyelets, grooved edges, scripted heel-loop, and yellow welt stitching. It is also Goodyear-welted so it's highly durable.
This pull-on style boot will definitely make you rethink purchasing the one I already mentioned. Although not as loud and bold as other DM boots, the Rometty Wyoming is perfect for the minimalist woman.
The upper is made of leather that has an oily surface and a subtle grain feature. It is actually burnished to darken the counters and toe of the boots.
Unlike other DM boots, this one has a cemented construction. In other words, the sole is attached to the leather upper through cementing for extra durability and flexibility.
This also features elastic gussets, a rugged heel, heel loop, and yellow welt stitching.
If you want a playful-looking boot, go for this polka lace-up! It has a high-impact print that combines stripes and polka dots— perfect as a party pair.

Another nice thing about this 1460 women's boot is that it is oil and fat-resistant. It also has exceptional slip and abrasion resistance.

Dr. Martens call this boot "footwear for the fearless" and it is easy to see why. It has 26 eyes and is perfect for tall women!
For the upper, this boot uses Virginia leather that is enhanced for better comfort. Since it is thigh-high, expect a lot of things going on with this boot.
For starters, it has gunmetal trims, adjustable lace, and a zipper on its inside quarter. Of course, it still exhibits docs' DNA— the yellow stitching and heel loop. It also has cemented construction so it's pretty sturdy.
The only downside of this feminine Doc Martens is that it only fits women with narrow feet.
