HOW TO POLISH YOUR DR. MARTENS FOOTWEAR

THE BOOT DOCTOR SAYS: SHOE POLISH RESTORES, NOURISHES AND PROTECTS FOR LONG-LASTING LEATHER

Even tough shoes need a little looking after. Dr. Martens Shoe Polish is designed to restore, protect and add shine to tough smooth leathers — bringing well-worn boots back to their best. In three colours, Black, Cherry Red and Neutral, DM’s shoe polish helps cover up scuffs and marks, and shield the leather from additional wear.

Here’s how to polish your boots — in five easy steps — with a few tips from the Dr. Martens Boot Doctor. Check out our full video at the bottom of the page.

BOOT DOCTOR TIP: DM’s SHOE POLISH CAN BE USED ON MOST SMOOTH LEATHERS. TEST ON A SMALL CORNER OF THE LEATHER IF YOU’RE UNSURE.
