"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.
• Pull-on style, with elastic gussets
• 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
• Serves up all the signature Doc's DNA, like our iconic stitching, grooved sides and scripted heel-loops
• Built on top of our rebelliously comfortable air-cushioned sole
Durable and famously stiff to start, our Smooth Leather can be polished to a dapper shine or artfully scuffed-up depending on your preference. Restores and rejuvenates with no polish or shine: our Wonder Balsam is formulated to keep leather strong and supple, and ensure your boots last even longer."
