Chukkas With A Twist – Norman Vilalta

Norman Vilalta

I like a chukka boot, I really do. But sometimes I see them (or wear them) and feel a bit bored by the monotony. Every now and then, I feel like it needs to just be stirred up a bit. And that is what I love about Norman Vilalta’s chukka boot that really took the idea of one and twisted it so well that something completely different (yet the same) come into place. Because I am also really not too fond of splitting the colors from vamp to heel counter but love the idea of doing so from the top to bottom (like on a balmoral boot), which his pattern allowed for. And boom! Greatness occurred. Now just imagine all of the cool possibilities that could be created!!

Here are two to get the creativity flowing:
