Like its famous 19th-century predecessors, No. 663 does entirely without any kind of decoration, lacing, or closure. The only design elements on the smooth and supple calfskin shaft are elastic side inserts and a stitched-on pull tab at the back. At the same time, a striking square-toe last form lends this dark brown Chelsea boot a certain boldness.
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.
