Men’s Chelsea Boots
What Is a Chelsea Boot?
The Chelsea boot, also known as the Dealer boot, is a tighter fitting boot that fits high up on the ankle, typically with an elastic side panel. Chelsea boots are laceless, allowing the wearer to casually slip them on the feet. The Chelsea is named after a neighborhood of the same name in southwest London.
The Chelsea Boot surged in popularity throughout London in the 60s and has continued to be a go-to choice for fashionable men looking to make a statement in their ensemble.

The History of the Chelsea Boot
The Chelsea boot was originally designed by Queen Victoria’s personal shoemaker, J. Sparks-Hall, who claimed the Queen loved them so much, she walked in them daily. As he advertised his creation, he dubbed them the “J. Sparkes-Hall’s Patent Elastic Ankle Boots,” a name that wouldn’t prove to be quite as marketable in the future.
The boot surged in popularity in the U.K. through the 1960s thanks to rising rockstar acts like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. In fact, John Lennon and Paul McCartney took the Chelsea boot and had it refashioned with a Cuban heel, a style that would be known as the Beatle boot.
Due to its association with King’s Road, a major street running through Chelsea and Fulham in west London, the boot became known as the Chelsea boot. This area was a hub for London fashion at the time, and the Chelsea boot would soon take over the mod scene, often worn by men with tailor-made suits.
