Overall Take

These Docs have the time-honored, air-cushioned sole that can put a bounce in anyone's step. What's more, they're much easier to put on thanks to a zipper on the interior side. The leather material and stitching makes them as long-lasting as they are fashionable.

From The Manufacturer

This classic boot from Dr. Martens features an eight-eyelet design and signature air-cushioned sole. Dr. Martens is the stuff of legends. It all began near Munich, Germany in 1945 when Dr. Klaus Maertens injured his foot in a skiing accident in the Bavarian Alps. To make walking easier during the healing process, he designed a shoe with an air-cushioned sole. Using old rubber tires, he constructed soles that had air trapped within closed compartments. He showed his prototype to his engineer/inventor friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, and together they decided to develop and produce the shoes. Not only did the shoe solve the doctor's immediate problem, but it also started to sell well in Germany. By 1959 the two decided that they needed a company to produce and distribute the shoes, then called Dr. Maertens, in other parts of the world. At first, many manufacturers rejected the concept of an air cushioned sole as a short-lived gimmick. However, the R. Griggs Group, located in the village of Wollaston in England, decided to go along with the idea by creating the first work boot with the revolutionary sole. On the first of April 1960, the first cherry red eight-eyelet work boot was produced and named 1460. To sell the brand name better in England, the name was anglicized to Dr. Martens. The range was branded AirWair and the rest is history.

An Overview On Size 4 Girls' Boots

A sturdy, stylish and comfortable pair of boots is an important part of every girl’s wardrobe. Boots can go with pants, skirts and dresses, and can help you dress up or dress down any outfit.

One of the most important things to look into when buying a pair of size 4 girls’ boots is whether they are waterproof. This is especially key if you live in a climate that sees a lot of rain, snow, hail or sleet. Waterproof boots ensure that your child’s feet don’t get wet or cold during the fall and winter months. If you love a pair that’s not waterproof, you may wish to treat them with a protective spray, wax, or cream to get the same effect.

The sole of the boot ensures stability, comfort and safety. In snowy, icy or wet weather, it’s best to wear a boot that has a rubber sole with traction. This prevents your child from slipping and getting hurt. If you live in a dry climate, traction can come in handy on sandy or smooth surfaces.

If you’re buying ankle-height or mid-length boots, then look for a padded collar at the top of the boot. This makes it less likely that your child’s ankles and legs will rub against a hard part of the boot and become irritated. If your child wants to tuck their pants into the boot, then having a padded collar ensures the pants don’t keep slipping out.

The Size 4 Girls' Boot Buying Guide

  • There are so many stylish size 4 girls’ boots available, that it may be tempting to prioritize fashion over function. However, an uncomfortable boot may hurt your child’s foot and lead to pain and injury. Ensure your child has the freedom to move about easily without any issues.
  • Girls’ boots have different types of closures, which include zippers, buttons, laces and Velcro. Consider what type is most convenient for your child so that they can independently put on and take off the boots. Show your child how to fasten boots properly.
  • Finding the right size boot can be challenging, especially since a size 4 in one brand may be a different size in another brand. Be sure to carefully measure your child’s foot and compare it to the sizing chart to ensure you have the right size. Note that some kids have two different-sized feet, so it’s best to measure both feet and use the larger foot to size the boot.
