A HISTORY OF REBELLIOUS SELF-EXPRESSION.
Dr. Martens' simple silhouettes allows their wearers to adopt the boots and shoes as part of their own individual and very distinctive style; on a practical level, their famous durability and comfort make them ideal for the unforgiving world of gigs and street fashion; and then finally on an emotional level, they are a badge of attitude and empowerment.
2976 CHELSEA BOOTS
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.
