Contrast Soles

Steven Taffel of Leffot recently received his new pair of Hiro Yanagimachi chukkas boots and was kind enough to share it with the world and I am glad that he did. I was blown away by the beauty of this pair of chukkas. I have seen that brick colored sole before but mainly in that Dainite version. It is not common on a leather sole as it is a unique dye that needs to be […]

Septieme Largeur – Spring/Summer 2018 Line Up!

Septieme Largeur has made a clear statement this Summer with their color scheme of Snuff suede, Bottle Green suede and what looks like Deep Red Suede. Quite the choice of colors.

Those just might be my favorites of the […]

New & Lingwood – Summer Chukkas in All Colors

The word ‘boot’ usually brings to mind Autumn/Winter feelings and thoughts of the corresponding attire but when thinking of a chukka boot, I tend to think of it as a go-to Spring/Summer boot. The casual nature of the chukka boot often sits better under the materials/styles we tend to wear in the summery months, such as chinos/denim/linens etc . Whereas our corduroys/wool/tweeds tend to pair nicely with leather boots, often high in nature and quite […]

Chukka Boots in Color?

I love a good chukka boot. But I have always mainly loved them in either suede or some sort of grain leather as I see chukka boots as something to wear casually i.e. with jeans, chinos, cords etc but not so much on a super smart level with a suit or anything like that. But the more that I see them in the wild (and online), the more that I am tempted by making them […]

A Very Elegant Chukka by Bestetti

  I really like chukka boots, but just realized that I only have one pair of them and don’t wear them often. I don’t know why that is but I need to change that! I saw this one here by Riccardo Bestetti and was quite fascinated with its beauty. Everything about it is very elegant and appealing. And I know that some have an issue with how long Bestetti’s lasts are but after looking at […]
