THE DR. MARTENS

FOR LIFE COLLECTION

After careful consideration, we've decided to discontinue the For Life collection.
The last day to purchase a For Life product with a lifetime guarantee is March 26. Please register the product immediately, because your last chance to register, or activate, your For Life product is May 31.

THE GOOD NEWS
In August 2018, we're launching a collection called Hard Life, with products very similar in performance to the For Life range. However, the products do not come with lifetime guarantee.

Are you a current For Life owner?
Don’t worry: we’ll still honor all our existing For Life guarantees for products purchased before March 26, and registered by May 31.

If you need to make a claim, go ahead and click the yellow button below.

TERMS & CONDITIONS
*The FOR LIFE guarantee only applies to the Dr. Martens FOR LIFE products.

WHY THE FOR LIFE RANGE

IS THE BOOT FOR YOU

We have added weight and thickness to the inner core of the sole and used a highly resilient and supple leather called Hardlife. With a little help from you, these boots and shoes will give you a lifetime of wear.

The insole is made with a higher percentage of ground leather to give enhanced cushioning, breathability and absorption of odour
Every lace has been waxed and metal tipped for longer life
With prolonged wear this insole will mould to the shape of the foot for superior comfort
Made with a Hardlife Leather. We use a traditional footwear process to saturate the grain of the leather with water resistant oils to make it supple, yet durable
Made on our unique bouncing AirWair sole but with added weight and thickness to the inner core of the sole to give them longer lasting wear
Manufactured with a Goodyear Welt and coupled with our unique Z welt stich to give a more durable construction

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR

FOR LIFE PRODUCT

Without proper conditioning, even the finest-quality leathers, like those in the for life products, will eventually dry and lose their durability. Take the time to care for the leather - and you'll be rewarded with a pair of boots or shoes which will not only keep their looks, but last for years to come.

Care instructions

  • Remove dirt with a damp cloth.
  • When dry, apply a small amount of Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam to the leather, in an even layer, using the sponge provided. Ensure that the balsam is worked into the seams.
  • Leave the wonder balsam to absorb for five minutes.
  • Remove any excess with a cloth
