With the popularity of the Dr. Martens brand, you would easily spot women wearing a pair of DMs in the streets, at work, or even in social gatherings. In fact, Dr. Martens is really famous in the female population that popular celebrity A-listers like Olivia Rodrigo, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, and Kourtney Kardashian have rocked this brand more than once!
Some of the most popular Dr. Martens boots for women are the 1460 Women's Smooth Leather Lace Up Boots and the Jadon Smooth Leather Platform Boots. As for shoes, females love the 1461 Smooth Leather Oxford Shoes and the 8065 Smooth Leather Mary Jane Shoes. For the sandals, the Voss Women's Strap Sandals top the list.
There are other designs that you may consider if you are an empowered woman looking for footwear that can match your style! I have listed 15 of them in this article, so don't go anywhere.
The majority of the boots that women love are unisex— meaning to say, they are also worn by men. These boots are chunky and add more character to whatever outfit you would pair them with.
The 1460 Women's Smooth Leather Lace Up Boots which come in black, white, and cherry red color are very much like the classic 1460, but it is a bit narrower to fit the usual shape of women's feet.
Just like the standard 1460, it has 8 eyes, grooved edges, and yellow stitching. The Smooth leather used for the upper is Goodyear welted, or in other words, heat-sealed to the sole and reinforced with yellow stitches for extra durability.
This boot style actually ranks supreme for men as well. So it is no wonder that the female version is also a favorite of many!
The DM Jadon Smooth Leather Platform boot which is a bit more expensive than the 1460 packs a chunky sole that is really women empowering! Its platform height is actually 1 ½ inch and its heel height is 1 ⅞ inch.
The Jadon is an evolution of Dr. Martens' 1460 so it still has 8 eyes, grooved edges, heel loop, and yellow stitching. The material used for this boot is the Polished Smooth leather so you can expect that it is lightly textured and has a noticeable sheen.
What makes the Jadon even more unique from the 1460 is its inner ankle zip. This feature makes it easy to wear and remove.
The DM Devon Heart Leather Platform boot screams femininity all over with its heart buckle detail and high platform. Dr. Martens consider this boot as a symbol of their customization history and their detailing that is DIY inspired.
The Devon Heart is made of Milled Nappa, a type of pebbled leather that is hardwearing and is very soft even in the first wear.
Women love the two woven straps of this boot and the heart-shaped buckles attached to them. This footwear also boasts of a padded tongue and quarters for extra comfort. The yellow welt stitching and heel loop are also present in this design.
Since a good number of women love the 1460 design, it is not shocking that they also love its Crazy Horse leather version. This boot showcases the same details like the classic 1460, but it uses Crazy Horse— an oil-finished leather that has a worn appearance even when brand new.
If you are looking for a rugged-looking boot, this is definitely for you. The boot's stylish 8 eyes, AirWair soles, iconic yellow welt stitches, and heel loop are really highlighted in this pair.
The leather used is also oil and fat-resistant, plus it also has good abrasion!
This Vegan Chelsea boot is perfect for women who prefer synthetic material over leather. This is 100% vegan as it is made of Felix Rub Off Leather. The material is soft and supple and also has a two-tone finish albeit subtle.
Another thing that should be highlighted about this Chelsea boot is its fit. It is a bit narrow, so make sure that you go to a physical Dr. Martens store when purchasing one.
Nevertheless, this boot is perfect for women who are always on the go since it has elastic gussets that make it a pull-on style.
The sole used for this awesome boot is the Quad Bex sole. It is stacked for extra chunkiness.
The most popular DM shoes for women are part of the brand's ever-evolving collection. Most of these shoes pay tribute to the original DM silhouette, but they're also very trendy and contemporary.
I know what you're thinking! Isn't this the same bestselling DM shoe for men? Yes! You got it right. This bad boy is well-loved even by women too.
The 1461 Oxford Shoe of Dr. Martens is very iconic because it is the second style released after the 1460 boot. This shoe is made of the same material (Smooth leather) and also exhibits DMs DNA— the yellow stitching and grooved edges. Although, this doesn't have a heel loop.
Another great thing about this shoe is that it comes in playful colors like cherry red, acid pink, and purple. Perfect for women, and women at heart; if you know what I mean.
Who wouldn't love the T-bar fastening in the 8065 Smooth leather Mary Jane! I know it's very 80s, but it still matches a lot of outfits up to today. Not to mention, the white color of this shoe is really gorgeous!
This Mary Jane shoe is made of DM's famous Smooth leather so you can bank on its durability. Although it is quite stiff in the beginning, this will be very comfortable with continuous wear.
The T-bar fastening of this shoe is what really makes it iconic, along with the holes in its upper that give it more character. We also love how the AirWair gives a rugged look to this lovely pair.
I think the tassle detail of the Dr. Martens Adrian Leather loafer appeals to both sexes! This is actually the very first Doc to be inspired by subcultures, so it's really pleasing to look at.
Made of smooth leather, this shoe is of high-quality and comfortable. It also uses AirWair and is heat-sealed and reinforced with stitches. Unfortunately, though, the stitches are black and not yellow.
The tassle and stitch details on the upper of this shoe are really commendable. It is also slip-on footwear, so you can easily wear and remove it if needed.
This Docs only come in black color, but it looks very stylish.
Dr. Martens Bethan Polished Smooth Leather Platform Shoes
The DM Bethan polished platform shoe looks and feels very premium— perfect for every stylish woman! This shoe combines two features that have been archived by DM for years: the Commando tread sole that has a double-height, and the T-bar detail.
Another thing that I love about this shoe is that it has a toe cap that creates a sleek look. The leather linings also feel very premium, so you get an incredible established look.
As for quality, this shoe utilizes Polished Smooth leather so it is extra shiny. The upper is Goodyear welted to the sole and reinforced with yellow stitches.
Among all the shoes listed above, the DM 8053 Leather Platform shoe is probably the most comfortable. It packs a padded collar and an AirWair sole so you won't have blisters even if it has a platform height of 1 ½ inch.
Unlike the DM oxford shoe, the 8053 has a 5-eye style and is made of Polished Smooth leather. It is super durable and you have the option to polish it to a high shine.
This shoe also has yellow stitches and it is very chunky! People would immediately identify this shoe because of its character and power!
Currently, this only comes in black color, and the largest size for women is 12.
Dr. Martens sandals for women are not just pretty, but powerful. They're very chunky and they exhibit Docs' DNA through and through. They're the perfect summer footwear as they are very comfortable to wear!

The DM Voss II Sandal is the re-engineered version of the Voss women's sandals. It is made of Hydro, a smooth PU-coated leather that has a matt finish. It's fairly easy to clean than the original Voss.
Another feature of this sandal that is different from its predecessor is its Ziggy sole. This material is very light but is made to outlast summer since it is very durable.
This sandal tends to run small so Dr. Martens suggests going down a size when purchasing.
This DM Francis Leather Strap Sandal features a contemporary design. It has a wide central strap and silver-colored hardware in the middle. This is one of the most popular sandals for women since it is fairly new.
The material used for the straps of these sandals is Hydro so you can expect it to have a matt finish. Meanwhile, the straps sit on a tall Quad sole. To be specific, the sole's platform height is 2 ⅜ inches, while the heel height is 3 inches. Almost twice the size of most platform sandals!
Despite the towering sole, this sandal is super lightweight!
Dr Martens Myles sandal is a unisex pair that is very appealing to women. With its slip-on style and two adjustable straps that come with a hardwearing buckle, this sandal is meant to empower and boost the confidence of its wearer.
As for the material, this sandal uses Brando— a famously known full-grain leather that is waxy, tough, and durable. Over time, this leather develops a worn-in vintage appearance, perfect if you are looking for a dramatic touch in your footwear!
This sandal is also tall as it has a 1 ½ platform height. Since this is Goodyear welted, you can expect that this will last you several years.
