The Best Chelsea Boots for Men 2022

 

The Chelsea boot was originally designed in England in the 1950s. Since then, they’ve become a wardrobe staple for both men and women.

Chelsea boots are a great choice for those who want to look stylish without breaking their bank account. They are comfortable, versatile, and affordable. They really have become a country-style favourite amongst our customers.

So in this week's article we have decided to show you a couple of our favourites and how we would style them.

 

1. Hoggs of Fife Stanley Semi - Brogue Boots

 

It really was a no-brainer when deciding which Chelsea boots to start the article with.

Hoggs of Fife have been creating classic gentlemen's country wear since 1888! They gradually built an excellent reputation and became a much loved brand within the agricultural and farming communities.

Each year, they release their take on the traditional market boot. This year, the Stanley semi-brogue boot is a classic go-to style. It features a hand-stitched Danite rubber sole, which has been made with goodyear welted construction, ensuring it has strength and durability.

The rounded toe makes them comfortable yet stylish, along with the brogue serration and punching details.

The perfect boot if you want to impress at the local country pub or when socialising with friends. If you really want to be the talk of the town, we think they would look great paired with the Hoggs of Fife Tummel Tweed Sports Jacket and a classic Hoggs of Fife Inverness Pure Cotton Tattersall Shirt.

 2.  Blundstone Classic 585 Boots

 

The Blundstone Classic 585 are the perfect pair of leather boots if you're looking for something modern yet practical. 

Blundstone is a well-known Australian brand that is known for its comfort and durability. The 585 was designed with XRD Technology to absorb shock, as well as their legendary comfort insole, to ensure you have happy feet all day!

A slightly different look to the Hoggs of Fife classic Chelsea, the leather fabric has a weathered matt brown finish for a more rustic appearance.

The boot also features a thick, chunky rubber sole, which has been designed to last! Overall, a great all-rounder boot which can be dressed both up and down. We think they would look great with the Harkila Akkan Shirt and the Harkila Retrieve Jacket for colder days.

Our directors also styled these boots with their wedding suits for the ultimate country look, even on the big day!

3. Cotswold Siddington Commando Brogue Chelsea Boot

The Cotswold Siddington is a great alternative if you want the classic style at a lower price. Their modern twist on the Chelsea boot not only looks impressive but features premium leather and a heavy-duty commando sole. 

We also like the contrasting elastic side gusset, which makes it much easier to get the boot on and off. The brogue detail is also a great added detail and makes them feel more premium.

Like the others, we wouldn't suggest working or walking too far in this type of boot, but if cared for correctly, it could be a key piece in your wardrobe for many years. 

A true gentleman's boot, ideal for town or country. Try pairing this boot with a classic quilted jacket like the Hoggs of Fife Thornhill Quilted Coat and Hoggs of Fife Comfort Fit Heavyweight Jeans.

Our Top Tips

Don't forget, though we can help you style your Chelsea boots, they won't last if you don't care for them. Leather is a sensitive fabric that needs all your TLC! 

Try treating them before your first wear as well as regularly restoring them over time. We would suggest either the Hoggs Wax Leather Balm, which will nourish the leather with essential oils and waxes, freshening the appearance and preventing the leather from drying out and cracking, or the Nikwax Fabric and Leather Proof Spray.

You may also be tempted to pop them under your warm radiator to dry off, but STOP! It's the most common mistake our customers make, and it can seriously damage the look and construction of the leather. Try drying them at room temperature.
