✓ While the first Dr. Martens 2976 Chelsea boot was produced in the early '70s, the original style has Victorian origins. Farmers loved the sure fit and easy-on, easy-off elastic ankle gusset - kickass style was just an unexpected side effect.
✓ These days, the 2976 Chelsea boot is a slick, uncompromisingly fashion-forward look for both sexes. Part of our Lost Archives collection, this boot is made with the classic Dr. Martens Smooth leather, a lightly textured, highly durable leather with a soft sheen.
✓ The 2976 serves up all the signature Doc's DNA, like our iconic yellow stitch, air-
✓ Cushioned soles and scripted heel-loops.
✓ Please note sizes are UK sizing, refer to size guide chart.
Durable and famously stiff to start, our Smooth Leather can be polished to a dapper shine or artfully scuffed-up depending on your preference.
[Smooth] = Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth, allow to dry apply correct coloured wax based shoe polish to restore shine as desired.
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
ABOUT DR MARTENS
The first pair of Dr. Martens 1460 boots rolled off the production line on the 1st April in 1960, and thus began the iconic boot that we have come to know and love. Originally designed for workers, these boots are sturdy and made to handle anything. The brand has been adopted by diverse individuals, musicians, subcultures and tribes and has a history of rebellious self-expression. Doc Martens have become a cultural phenomenon, and the unique way they are made means air is sealed inside the sole, making them a comfortable and durable boot. Dress it up, dress it down or get them dirty at the next festival, Doc Martens are our go to boot!
