Chelsea boots from Jones Bootmaker

What does it mean?

Chelsea Boot


Men’s Chelsea boots have been a British fashion favourite for decades. If evidence stands correct, the first pair of Chelsea boots were designed by Queen Victoria’s bootmaker, Mr J Sparkes-Hall in 1837. However, this would not have been possible without the prior invention of vulcanized rubber by Charles Goodyear.

The 1950s saw widespread adoption of the Chelsea Boot, and its contemporary naming. Worn by the cool art set who hung out around Chelsea, the ‘Chelsea boot’ was born. Popularised by the Beatles, the mods soon followed captivated by the Italian inspired design and classic look.

Now, men’s Chelsea boots are a wardrobe staple for everyone from country gents to city slickers. Rounded toes can give a more relaxed aesthetic, whereas a pair with a sharp chiselled toe adds smart allure perfect for teaming with a suit. An infinitely adaptable and undatable style, there is a Chelsea boot for every man.
