Why It’s Hard to Find the Correct Dr. Martens Size

Should Doc Martens be loose?
You may have some room in the shaft (ankle) of the boot, but they shouldn’t feel loose in the forefoot or heel. It’s perfectly fine if you can fit a finger or two in the top of your boots. The main thing you should be feeling for is if your foot has an excessive amount of room to move around in the boot—that’ll cause blisters and discomfort over the long term.

Do Docs stretch?
Yes, all leather boots and shoes stretch a little as you wear them. It’s not like your Dr. Martens will stretch out an entire size, but they will get slightly looser over time. It’s ok if they’re a little snug to start. But your boots/ shoes shouldn’t ever give you a “tingly” feeling in your feet: that means they’re too tight.
