Dr. Martens: an iconic boot with a long heritage

Doc Martens ord Dr. Martens is a UK-born shoe brand that has become an evergreen in casual boots for all men, ladies, and children of all ages! As a truly global brand, size-charts.com has dedicated a Dr. Martens Size Charts and a fitting page on the website. Discover the Dr Martens Belt page here.

  • Dr Martens offers whole sizes only. If you are a half size, it is recommended going down to the nearest size.
  • Going up a size will mainly change the length of the shoe, not the width.
  • Sizes will be marked on the tongue of shoes, and the ankle strap of most sandals. Made in England styles will show the UK size, rather than the US size.

How to use the Dr Martens size guide:

  • Inch measurements are of the length of the shoe insole, not the length of the foot meant to fit in that size. Size-charts has added the foot length as an extra service.
