For me. And possibly perfect for you too, if you’ve been searching for a pair with a sole that’s neither too thin nor too clunky, and a shape that’s nicely refined, but not too fashiony-streamlined . Such a delicate balance.
I have wanted a good chelsea boot ever since i went to visit a swiss boyfriend and he was so appalled by my appalling shoes that he took me out to find me a nice “chelsea boot.”
And I never dated another European/Metrosexual again.
but I DID order these boots. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Yes please do! So glad you agree.
I don’t understand. He took you shoe shopping and this was bad??? Was he mean about your shoes? Or was the relationship already doomed for other reasons, but at least he got you some nice boots?
Ha. That didn’t really make much sense I guess did it. As i recall–and it was a long time ago–we never did find any shoes.
I guess I prefer men who are oblivious?
I have been searching for a good Chelsea/paddock/jodhpur boot! Beth, please let us know what you think of the leather quality–does the quality match the price tag?
Finally, something on trend that I already own in multiple pairs!!
which one’s do you own? And like best?
They are basically pull on jodhpur boots for riding. My favorite is the Ariat Louisville, which is (unfortunately) no longer in production. I have multiple pairs in black, brown, and black patent, that I bought when they stopped making them. There are many similar boots at various tack stores, especially ones that cater to saddle seat show riding: http://www.ehorseequipment.com/product.aspx?no=811800&sort=&page=&cid=131
Now my comment looks random, since the spam comment was deleted!
I like the boots, but I prefer a more substantial sole/heel. But simple black boots – they make everything better.
Tods has great Chelsea boots, sometimes Cole Haan ( with all that comfortable Nike Air stuff inside) has them too. Also, get some that are waterproof, you’ll get so much more use out of them.
I love flat boots – Have a pair similar to these,but they are so old I may need to replace them. Thanks!
