Ticking off almost two centuries of adventures, the Chelsea boot is a style staple for men around the globe. First making an appearance in Victorian England when it was created by Queen Victoria’s personal shoe maker, this elastic side boot has only gotten better with age.

There is something undeniably cool about these iconic boots. They are the perfect combination of class and charisma with so much smoothness that they always stand out from the crowd. Plus they are just as versatile as they are stylish, as easy to wear with your work suit as they are to team up with your favourite jeans.  Wherever your week takes you, to the concrete jungle or somewhere off the beaten track, a pair of Chelsea boots are the ultimate companion.
