Sizing: Dr. Martens only come in whole sizes and run big. If you usually wear a half size, we recommend going with the whole size below it. If you usually wear a whole size, we recommend sticking with that size. IE, if you wear an 8.5, we'd recommend an 8 in this shoe. If you wear an 8, we'd suggest sticking with an 8.
The first Dr. Martens Chelsea boot was produced in the early 70s, but the style dates back to the Victorian era. Our 2976 boot is a slick, easy on-and-off boot built with tumbled Ambassador leather, giving it a worn-in look. Ambassador is a heavyweight and oily leather that has been tumbled – meaning it retains its natural characteristics and markings. Clean with a damp cloth and care with Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam.
