Last season, these simple yet elegantly designed boots were the centerpiece of men’s footwear. Not only did they ensure that you feet stayed dry but their streamlined appearance looked great for any occasion. For this coming autumn, we expect the Chelsea boot to make regular appearances in our footwear rotation. Here are three of our top picks; they were chosen based on their overall quality and look:
Santoni Polished-Leather Chelsea Boots:
These brown leather boots are perfect for more formal occasions due to the polished upper. However, you can still dress these down with well-fitting denim or trousers for a weekend jaunt.
Thom Browne Pebble-Grain Leather Chelsea Boots:
If you’re just going to have one pair of Chelsea boots in your footwear collection, then you should definitely have them in black. This particular pair from American designer Thom Browne offers the perfect mix of formal and casual, thanks to its rounded toe and ankle height. The textured pebbled leather looks fantastic as well.
John Lobb Abbott Suede Jodhpur Boots:
Should you want to stick to traditional footwear, wingtips and oxfords, for your suiting, then you should reserve these John Lobb boots for a relaxed autumn day. The deep caramel colors undeniably attractive and the straps give it an extra edge.
