The classic smooth leather is durable and famously stiff to start with; it molds to your feet and gets more comfortable with wear. Smooth leather can be polished to a dapper shine, or artfully scuffed up, depending on your preference. Use a quality polish to keep your 2976’s clean and to protect the leather to keep it soft and supple. Regular cleaning also protects against water, liquid and salt marks.

SHOE CARE RECOMMENDATIONS:
A proper Chelsea bootThe 2976 is Dr Martens' classic Chelsea boot style. It first came out in the early 70s and has been a staple in the Docs range ever since. Featuring a stretchy gusset and a pull tab, they're designed to be slipped on with ease (once broken in) no laces, no fuss.
Fit: The 2976 has a slightly roomy width, like the 1460 boot. Customers with narrow feet sometimes go down a half or full size. The 2976s are pretty true to size with length. A good leather will always give in the width, but never in the length so they could feel a tad snug at first but hang in there!
Feel: At first, they can feel a little stiff but the quality of the leather means that it will mould to your foot in time. Dr Martens are not particularly supportive, but they aren't completely flat either. If you require extra support, theres room for an insert/insole.
Durability: The famous smooth leather makes this a durable and solid boot but like anything, if you look after it, it’ll look after you, what you give is what you get so just make sure you are using care products on these boots to keep them mint! Beeswax, Polish, or Dr.Martens own Wonder Balsalm should be all your go to’s! Check the guide out here shoe care guide!
- perfectAll my work mates wear quite dressy chelsea boots and have been trying to get me on board, but they weren't really a bit of me but these suit my personality more and are a perfect middle ground of dressy but still cool and can wear in my days off for casual things, thanks for the find!!
