Our No. 660 Chelsea Boot in cognac makes a fabulous addition to the stylish man’s wardrobe. The origin of these cognac-coloured leather shoes reaches back to King George IV, whose cobbler J. Sparkes Hall crafted this extraordinary boot in London. The effect then was polarising and even today Chelsea Boots remain a distinctive footwear choice. The typical elastic sidings may not normally be considered elegant, but the Beatles in particular showed just how stylish the Chelsea Boot could be, making it a signature item of their early wardrobe.
The supreme discipline of shoe manufacturing. In an elaborate process, the upper and outsole are sewn together using a thin strip of leather. This makes the shoes extremely stable, durable, dimensionally stable and extremely easy to repair.
Characteristic of the Chelsea boot are a pull tab and the elastic inserts on both sides, which especially simplify putting on and taking off. The simple design gives the Chelsea boot an avant-garde touch.
