This is a pre-order item.

The first Chelsea boot was put together in 1837, leveraging the new wonder material - elasticated fabric - of the time to create flexible side gores for easy on-off. This was a true revolution in boots, which had been closed up with hooks and loops (or buttons).

As with all John Lofgren boots, these are a heavier riff on the originals. The uppers are Horween Chromexcel, lined in Japanese cowhide, with heavy-duty elastic side gores. A 360 degree storm welt holds it all together and keeps your feet dry. Under the foot, USA-made Vibram 430 mini-lug soles keep you grounded.

These are built in one of the best boot factories in Japan, with every detail taken care of down to the padded leather heel pad.

Choose 0.5 size smaller than your Brannock device size.
