Classic Chelsea Boots

Originating from the Victorian era as a riding boot, the Chelsea boot is a tight-fitting ankle boot with an elasticated side gusset. A huge hit on the 60s mod scene, Chelsea boots are now an enduring classic: a chic and simple style statement.

 

The classic Chelsea Boot is flat, with a serious Equestrian look and is also known as a paddock boot or jodhpur boot. The side gusset, which makes this style so distinctive, was developed by Queen Victoria’s bootmaker. He wanted to make the boots easy to get on and off to appeal to the busier and more demanding lifestyle of Victorian women.

 

Today the Chelsea boot comes in many different iterations, and can be worn for every occasion.
