Highly flattering to the foot and leg and well-made as only Dr. Martens can be, their Marcie boot is a style for which I have been searching for years. With its refined styling and sleek leather, this boot is as appropriate in inclement weather as it is in any stylish office.

But with quality often comes cost ($130, eek!) so imagine my joy when I found these lovelies on a seasonal sale on the Dr. Martens website at half price, then added a coupon for 25% off. I was able to snag them for less than $50, and I would definitely do it again.

(In actuality, I have had my eye on these for a while and was attempting to save up for them. But having worn them almost constantly since they were shipped to me, I know I would lay out the full price for these in the future if I ever had to.)

Wear These Boots with Anything

I have chosen to wear them with a blouse and tailored pants, a twinset and slouchy pants, and a crew-neck cotton-knit top and jeans, and each outfit looks great. I've also tried them on with dresses of various lengths, and I still can't lose with these boots. They make planning an outfit around your Docs completely painless.

Part of the Elevate Collection

The Marcie boot is part of the Dr. Martens Elevate Collection, and elevated you will certainly be as you are raised over three inches from the ground. This wonderful rubberized wedge heel is comfortable and manages to be flattering to even a fuller leg like mine while also appearing to decrease the size and width of my foot! That was a great surprise. When wearing these magical boots, I stand tall and slimmer... whether I am improving my posture naturally or trying to show off the shoe, I am just not sure!

But in all seriousness, this is a very well-made shoe with its concealed zipper and feminine styling. The Marcie boot truly belongs in a smart and sleekly designed line such as the Elevate Collection. This shoe is just right for the DM wearer who needs something a little dressier, but just as comfortable and sharp-looking.

Alsina Leather

The leather used is the Alsina type... a smooth and sturdy, yet flexible and fashionable material that suits the style of the Marcie boot to a "t".

Care will be a no-brainer for these as well... a quick swipe of a damp towel and a little wax to brighten up the shine on these babies is all that's needed.

Marcie Boots are Made in Vietnam

These boots are not made in England; rather, they are constructed in Vietnam. Personally, I have no problem with that as these are a modern, updated look and not the original 1460 style.

The Dr. Martens' Logo on the Marcie Boot

Without the usual iconic bright yellow stitching, most people will have no idea that these boots are part of the Dr. Martens brand. But if you look closely on the outside heel of the leather and the gray rubber sole, you'll find the "Doctor" logo stamped cleanly into the surfaces.

These boots absolutely do not scream to others that you are wearing DMs. Passersby will simply notice a well-made and attractive shoe! And that's the mark of real style.

Compared to my well-worn (and very well-loved!) smooth 1460s, the Marcie boot stands head and shoulders (ok, ankle and laces) above its thick, less graceful cousin, gloriously ladylike yet just as protective.

The Marcie Boot Will You Feel Great!

Wearing these boots, I feel fierce, tall, and like a beautiful ninja. Ready to take on the world, kick some booty, and take names (while also looking gorgeous the whole time). And what other boots can one say that about?

Breaking in the Marcie Boot

Breaking this boot in took me less than a day. Except for a very painful half hour early in the day during which I drove to work wearing these boots, they softened up around the ankles very quickly and I have been able to wear them for three days in a row without getting any of the dreaded DM-blisters (really!)

Also, the width of these boots is great -- not narrow, but not too wide... definitely true to size.

Marcie Boot Pros and Cons

Pros
Cons
They are fashionable. I've received numerous compliments while wearing these boots.
These boots are fairly expensive. Although the high price tag was not relevant in my case as I bought these on a great sale and topped it with a coupon code, $130 is certainly a lot of money to lay out. But I'm confident that these will last me a very long time.
They are sturdy with their rubber wedge heel, which makes them ideal for a perfectly zaftig chica like me. I won't fall off of my shoes and the rubber won't break. The Doc Martens brand is synonymous with quality, and these certainly do not disappoint.
 
They make me feel great! When something as simple as a shoe can do that, it's a little bit magical.
