What are Chelsea boots?
Chelsea boots have a long and illustrious history. They were designed by Queen Victoria’s shoemaker, who proudly announced that HRH would regularly walk around in them, a testament to his creation!
More recently, Chelsea boots have been associated with the Mod scene, and have been worn by a lot of rock stars in London, hence the name.
They are ankle boots, close fitting, with an elastic panel in the side and a loop on the back so that the boots can be easily put on and taken off. They are popular as a fashion item, as well as being perfect for walking or horse riding.
They are comfortable and multi functional, plus they are a good quality pair of shoes that should last you for a long time to come.
