How cool are these mens black suede chelsea boots?! Did you know the origins of this style of boot is Victorian. Vulcanised rubber was created in 1844 by two inventors across the atlantic. We are not sure who came first, Goodyear (US) or Hancock (UK) but we do know that it was J Sparkes Hall who made the first boot with elasticated sides. He made boots for Queen Victoria and even she gave her seal of approval by wearing these. Hence initially they were worn by men and women as walking boots and then became linked with riding too. As well as the side gusset, this style of boot usually has a tab at the back to slip them on and off with ease. The toe is generally round and the fitting is usually tight around the foot. Obviously, they became known as chelsea boots due to the young wannabes who frequented the Kings Road in search of music, film and fun in the 50s and 60s. The Beatles loved them and went on to design a similar boot with a heel called a cuban heel boot. We have a huge selection of cuban heel boots so do check them out. Other legends like The Stones wore them and the Mods took to wearing them with their very sleek cut suits. The trend continued with Steed form the Avengers wearing black chelsea boots with a bowler hat and three piece suit or a tuxedo. It just goes to show how you can wear them with panache. These designer black suede chelsea boots have a less formal feel about them due to the fabric so would work better paired with casual clothes than a suit. Now they would look really good battered with a leather jacket and jeans but if you want to keep them tip top here are some ideas. Spray them with a protective spray. Expose them to air. Invest in boot trees and stick them in. If you don’t have any, then just use butcher paper and it will do the trick of absorbing any moisture. Then get these very cool mens black suede chelsea boots on and have some fun.
