Dr. Martens -- 2296 Wellington Boot Review

Recently, I was given the opportunity to test out a pair of
Dr. Martens (Doc Martens) 2296 WELLINGTON GAUCHO VOLCANO pull-on, heavy-duty work boots.

I will tell you straight - I am very impressed. As a Land Surveyor, I'm constantly in all types of weather and all types of terrain. Not to mention the mud and the muck I track through daily.

I need a boot that will take me anywhere and everywhere I have to go and provide comfort, safety, and warmth. The 2296 WELLINGTON GAUCHO VOLCANO not only meets my needs but exceeds them. This is a high quality workboot.

I've put these boots through the wringer. They've been in ditches and culverts, gravel pits, and swamps, deep woods and marshes -- no leaks, no tears, no discomfort. They've done all I've asked of them and more.

The Wellington Gaucho Volcano is a part of the Icon collection.

The 2296 Wellington is a heavy-duty boot, built to Perform in the most demanding of environments. Durable Full-grain leather upper, padded ankle locking supports and Hard-wearing slip-resistant outsole Make this Boot a must have. Electrical Hazard rated.


Water-resistant Full-grain Leather, Padded Ankle Locking Support, Double Stitched, Leather Pull Loops

Nylon Mesh

Removable Nylon Mesh Covered EVA Footbed

Standard Wood

SAF Patented air-cushioned sole, slip-resistant to oil, fat, petrol, and alkali

Stitch Welted Contoured full cushion insole
Full quarter and vamp lining
Patented air cushion sole
Resists oil, fat, acid, petrol
and alkili
SAF sole

Volcano is a worn /and distressed leather with water resistant properties which provides a rugged appearance.

The boot is very comfortable but it does run a bit narrow and short. I wear a Men's 9 1/2 and would recommend that you buy one (1) size larger and wider-width than your everyday shoe.
