Featuring a classic air-cushioned sole for comfort and durability it offers excellent resistance to slip and abrasion. Goodyear-welted the Dr Martens Originals 2976 Chelsea Boot is the perfect way to complete your look. FEATURES & BENEFITS The original Dr Martens air-cushioned sole, providing underfoot comfort and durability since 1960. It is oil- and fat-resistant, tough and offers good abrasion and slip resistance. This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This, together with our Z welt-stitch and heat-sealing process, makes it unique to Dr Martens. Products with a plain welt are still stitched, but the constructional thread is not visible. Smooth is the classic Dr Martens leather: durable, with a smooth finish.
