Dr Martens are a British footwear company who are best known for their classic boots. In recent years they have introduced a wider variety of footwear to their range to include shoes and sandals.
Dr Martens women's heels are made from soft leather, which gives them a premium appearance, as well as ensuring they are hard wearing and durable. They also feature a cushioned sole, for optimum comfort.
DM women's heels are all made to the same specification, so they all provide the right support for the foot. As with all footwear, it's important to measure your feet to get the right size, otherwise they will pinch or rub when you wear them.
Their premium leather construction means they are not the cheapest shoes on the market, but their quality and durability makes them long lasting.
The advantages of leather
Unlike synthetic materials which remain fairly rigid,
leather Dr Martens heels will mould to the shape of the foot over time, ensuring your shoes are comfortable and provide optimum support.
Leather can be treated to make it more waterproof. This is worth bearing in mind as The Dr Martens brand is common among festival goers.
Looking after leather shoes
Leather shoes need to be cleaned and looked after to prevent the leather from drying out and cracking. A soft, clean cloth should be used to remove any dirt before polishing with proper leather polish. There are also various leather treatments available which help to keep the leather soft and supple. These are usually added after polishing.
Genuine leather shoes will outlive synthetic ones, and also allow air to pass through meaning your feet will be fresher.
Storing leather shoes
Leather shoes generally keep their shape, but if they are stored with something on top they can dent and this can be very difficult to get out. The best way to keep them is to use a shoe tree which allows the shoes to breathe and makes sure they stay in shape.
