The Chelsea boot has become something of a style staple for the modern man. Smarter than desert boots but just a tad more casual than formal lace-up versions, the Chelsea boot has become synonymous with understated style; invest in a good pair and they’ll last you a lifetime.

The name ‘Chelsea boot’ was derived from 1950s Chelsea, the height of the London fashion scene and a place where Chelsea boots still pound the pavements in their droves. The great thing about this style is its versatility; wear your best pairs for days in the office and nights that demand a clean shave, then bring out those slightly scuffed favourites, embracing that worn look for a rock ‘n’ roll edge favoured by Mr Beckham. Channel the man himself with a simple white tee, slim black jeans and a Belstaff leather jacket.

Our delivery of new season styles from men’s footwear maestro Jeffery West brought us the “Horror Show” Rioja Wine Glass Chelsea Boot, one of the most unique we’ve see in a while. Navy is the shade of the season when it comes to footwear and a flash of red – in the Rioja Red Suede backstrap and the Wine Glass shaped gusset (hence the name!) is just the nod to naughtiness that we have come to expect from Mr West.

Make the Chelsea boot part of your AW16 look, with a visit to the Robinsons of Bawtry boutique. With so many new season styles from Jeffery West, we can’t promise you’ll only leave with one pair…
