Age like fine wine, Chelsea is classy as always.
Despite being a defining fashion item of the cool British kids in the ’60s, tracing Chelsea boots’ history means dating back to the Victorian era, when they were first designed by Joseph Sparkes Hall, the Queen’s shoemaker himself. With its identifying characteristics being close-fitting, ankle-high, and with an elastic panel harnessed on each side, this particular type of boot was designed for hassle-free slipping on and off one’s feet, as word has it that Queen Victoria wore them on a daily basis, either for horse riding or simply walking.
Over the course of time, the initial design that evolved around practicality extended towards appearance as Chelsea boots made it to the popular scene as an iconic fashion item. If the legendary English rock band, The Beatles, teamed the footwear with their signature suits, people of the ’80s played a more liberated game by pairing them with jeans, leather jackets, monochromic midi skirts, even floral maxi dresses.
History repeats itself, so does fashion. Today, with a practically non-existent limit to the game of mix-and-match, people are in full charge to pair their Chelsea boots with whatever clothing articles occupying their closet. This timeless appeal of Chelsea boots has driven Txture to accommodate those free-spirited individuals in defining their characters by donning a pair of its line of Chelsea series, such as Chelsea I, Chelsea Mohawk, Chelsea for Women. Chelsea boots are praised for their versatility, not without reason, from casual to semi-formal, from men to women.
