Dr. Marten Emmeline Review
The Emmeline boots by Dr. Marten are a perfect fusion of fashion and function. Delivered as a superior quality boot that doesn’t sacrifice style, they are a great choice for people wanting an ankle boot that is built to last but also very cute and trendy. With a sleeker look than original Dr. Marten boots, these boots still maintain the cult edginess that Dr. Martens boots are known for, but with a cleaner look that can be worn with a broader variety of outfits and looks. Unlike the classic Dr. Martens, the Emmeline boots have thinner soles without the signature bright yellow stitching, giving them a classier and more professional appeal perfect to wear with dresses, skirts, skinny jeans, and even office outfits.
Buyers love the shorter height of these boots too, with only 5 eyelets, stating that they look much more feminine and fashionable than the combat style indicative of the classic Dr. Martens with 8 eyelets. But the Emmeline still delivers many of the same quality attributes as the original Dr. Marten boot. Fabricated with durability in mind, they are made with the same high-quality materials, feature the iconic ankle pull tab, and are available in some of the same great colors. As to be expected from Dr. Martens, the tough leather of these boots require a bit of time to break in. But as they do, the leather softly molds to the shape of your feet, giving you customized support all day long. Stride in quality style and comfort in the new Emmeline ankle boots by Dr. Marten.
Long Lasting Wear
High Comfort After Break In
Need To Break In
As the leather softens over time, it gently conforms to your feet resulting in a truly customized and comfortable feel. And since the width around the ankle can be adjusted with the laces, they are easy to wear with varying thicknesses of socks to cushion your ankle until the leather softens. In addition to the ease of breaking in, these boots offer a lightly cushioned leather and textile footbed for added comfort and support. Rounding out the inside of the boot, is a liner also crafted out of a soft mix of leather and fabric that feels cozy with or without socks. The insoles are removable, making them a great option for those wanting or needing to insert their own orthotics.
Some wearers found the leather to be particularly inflexible at the opening, creating discomfort and some blistering as the material sometimes rubbed into their skin. Wearing socks during their initial break-in period is a great way to avoid that discomfort until the leather softens and becomes pliable. And applying a waxy balm, like Wonder Balsam, to the interior of the leather shaft will aid in softening the leather as well. But once the boots have broken in, the Emmeline boots become much more supple and flexible, allowing them to move well with your feet for lasting comfort with every step.
The durable leather will soften with wear and mold to your feet to give them just the right amount of security and space to keep you on your feet. The durable PVC outsole helps your feet stay grounded on any surface. The air cushioned sole adds support without the bulk. And their lightweight but supportive construction gives them a clean stylish look while also maintaining comfort. The Emmeline boots are a wonderful combination of edgy and elegant, making them a great choice for a pair of everyday statement boots!
