As easy to slip on as it is to style, the 2976 has been favoured by musicians, freethinkers and subcultures since the 70s. Here we’ve reimagined our original Chelsea boot with standout white stitching and a black and white heel loop. The enduring, laceless boot is finished with grooved sides and a comfortable air-cushioned sole.
- The 2976 is the rugged Docs take on the classic Chelsea boot. Manufactured since the 70s
- Hardwearing and famously tough, our Smooth leather can be polished to shine or scuffed-up. It’s up to you. Clean with a damp cloth and care with Dr. Martens Shoe Polish
- Our Goodyear-welted lines are heat-sealed at 700°C and reinforced with our signature welt stitch
Durable and famously stiff to start, our Smooth Leather can be polished to a dapper shine or artfully scuffed-up depending on your preference.
Clean away dirt using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr.Martens Wonder Balsam, Neutral or coloured wax polish as appropriate, using a Dr.Martens shoe brush, (Neutral can be applied to all colours). Allow to dry, then buff vigorously to desired shine using a second clean Dr.Martens shoe brush. (We advise to use 2 brushes per colour, one to add the polish and the second, clean dry brush, to buff up the leather for the best results).
