They are not just ankle boots, but icons of style. Chelsea boots dominate the high fashion catwalks and can be easily worn with casual chic or formal outfits. They give a unique touch, typical of the British style.
They never betray their origin: English and noble. These boots date back to the Victorian era. They were first created in 1851 by J. Sparkes-Hall, Queen Victoria’s shoemaker, who made them for both men and women. At first, they were riding boots, then they saw a period of slow decline. We have to wait until the 1950s for them to be named chelsea, when a group of young artists, including Mary Quant and Jean Shrimpton, begin to hang out in west London, near Chelsea. They wear ankle boots with elastic panels that are precisely renamed “chelsea boots”.
The triumph comes in the 60s when they became the favorite footwear of the Beatles, so much that they earned the nickname of Beatle boots.
Their constant presence at high fashion shows confirms the huge success. These ankle boots have become a must have in the male wardrobe, alongside combat boots. The classic model, thanks to the essential lines and the practical fit – which has no laces, but side elastics panels – has become a must have. With a minimal design, the slip-on style of the Chelsea boot makes it quite attractive. They are perfect with any style of clothing, from jeans to chinos and even suits.
