How do I know what size I am?
Need help finding the right size Docs? Use our size guide to help you determine the best fit for your feet. Our iconic original styles like the 1460 8-Eye boot tend to run a little wider, so we recommend ordering a size down.
To ensure you choose the correct size for your feet we recommend you follow the method described here.
*Please note that Dr. Martens products are by default in UK sizing.To measure your size is better if you are helped by a second person.
- Put a sheet of paper along the wall and fixed to the floor using scotch tape.
- Then you stand over the paper, you must be standing straight, wearing socks, heels and back against the wall and feet together.
- Draw the outline of both feet and draw the straight line where the silhouette is longer. Draw another line parallel to 0.5 cm from this line (and the clearance is measured).
- Finally, measure the distance from the wall to the second line you have drawn (both feet do not have to be the same length).
- This will be your reference to know your shoe size.
When you find a Dr Marten that you like, simply select your preferred size metric (US/EU/UK) and choose your size. If you are unsure of which size is right for you, here are some helpful tips:
Already own a pair of Docs?
Generally sizing tends to be standard across all Docs, although sizes can vary slightly depending on the style, shape, and material of the shoe. The size of the pair that you already own is a good guide!
Use product information and reviews.
Certain styles can run a size larger or smaller. We’ll include this information on the product page when we have this information available, and often, fellow shoppers will leave reviews with size information that you can use.
