2976 Chelsea Boots
While the first Dr. Martens 2976 Chelsea boot was produced in the early '70s, the original style has Victorian origins. First envisioned as a riding boot, the style's sure fit and easy-on, easy-off elastic ankle gusset gained popularity in the farming community. Today, the unisex 2976 Chelsea boot is a slick, uncompromisingly fashion-forward look for both men and women. Dr. Martens gave the boot extra class with rich, full-grain Brando leather, complemented by smooth paneling in stylish, water-resistant Hi Suede. And, like all Docs, the boot only gets better with time and wear. The 2976 Chelsea in Brando/Hi Suede has the iconic AirWair Bouncing Soles, that's oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance-and has been since 1960. The boot is Goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in a heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. The Brando leather will change appearance with age, giving it a distressed look, while the Hi Suede WP is traditional, lightweight suede that has the added benefit of being water-resistant. The classic Dr. Martens heel loop is self-scripted in leather-giving it an extra premium touch. Material: Leather.
