Do They Sell Dr. Martens at Journeys?
Yes! If you're seeking Dr. Martens "near me," you'll find them at your nearest Journeys store. You can also shop for Dr. Martens online right here.
How Do You Decide Which Dr. Martens to Get?
When picking out Dr. Martens shoes, consider your own personal style as well as when and where you want to wear them. The classic 1460 boot is a solid choice, but you could also opt for a platform Chelsea boot, a casual shoe, or a strappy sandal. Pick a pair in black that goes with everything, or stand out with a bright color or funky pattern: It's up to you.
What Are the Most Popular Dr. Martens?
The top-selling Dr. Martens boots are men's and women's 1460s, the first Docs and still the most popular.

Do Dr. Martens Run Big or Small?
For the most part, Dr. Martens fit true to size, but some styles of Dr. Martens boots do run a little big. If you'll be wearing thick socks with them, this shouldn't be an issue, but otherwise, you may want to consider ordering a size smaller when buying boots online.

Are Dr. Martens Comfortable?
Once your Dr. Martens are broken in, they are incredibly comfortable shoes that mold to the shape of your feet. They'll be the most durable and comfortable boots you own!
How Should Dr. Martens Feel?
Right out of the box, your Dr. Martens should feel snug, but you should have a quarter-inch of length from your toes to the end of the shoe. The shoes will mold to fit your foot over time, but you can break them in faster by putting on multiple pairs of socks at once, putting your Dr. Martens on, and using a hair dryer over the tight spots.
Do Dr. Martens Stretch Out?
Dr. Martens boots do stretch when they're broken in, molding to the shape of your foot.
Can You Return Dr. Martens in Store?
Yes! You have 365 days to return your order or exchange them for a different pair, as long as they're still unworn and in the original packaging. Just bring the shoes and a copy of your order confirmation email to the store for a fast exchange or refund.
How Much Do Dr. Martens Cost?
The cost of Dr. Martens is typically between $100 and $200 because they are created from high-quality materials and are made to last, but keep an eye out for sales, which can drastically reduce the price.
How Long Do Dr. Martens Last?
Women's and men's Dr. Martens can last for many years if they are well taken care of. Many people find that they can wear the same pair for a decade or more!
Are Dr. Martens Worth It?
Dr. Martens shoes may seem a little pricey at first glance, but they are well worth it due to their high-quality construction. They last for years, even if you wear them through inclement weather like heavy rain and snow. And if you take good care of the leather, they will continue to look brand new for a long time.

Why Were Dr. Martens Originally Made?
Dr. Martens were originally modest work boots and were even advertised as gardening boots at one point. This is why so much emphasis is put on durability.

Are Dr. Martens Good Walking Shoes?
Dr. Martens are great all-in-one shoes for anything you may need them for: walking, hiking, working, and more.

Do Dr. Martens Have a Good Grip?
Dr. Martens boots have a deep tread and sole, both of which are helpful in maintaining a good grip in inclement weather conditions.
How Can You Tell if Dr. Martens Are Fake?
There are a few ways you can tell if your Dr. Martens sandals or boots are fake:
  • Look for the air-cushioned "bouncing soles" of a real Dr. Martens shoe.
  • Check for typos on the logo inside the shoe.
  • Examine the back heel for the AirWair loop, which is only on authentic Dr. Martens.
  • Check the base of the shoe for the characteristic Dr. Martens yellow stitching.
  • Check the imprint on the bottom of the shoe for a cross with the Dr. Martens stamp.
  • Of course, if you buy genuine Docs from Journeys, you won't have to worry about any of that.
