The Great Chukka Roundup

Tired of wearing sneakers as your go to casual footwear of choice? Maybe you’re searching for something with a little more style without looking too much like a modified dress shoe? If this sounds like your dilemma, then perhaps the Chukka is for you.

The  ankle-length Chukka boot (in leather or suede)  gained popularity in the 40s and 50s and has essentially withstood the test of time (and the harsh eye of fashion).

They can be lined, unlined, come with a crepe, leather or even a commando sole.  So, as with everything else, knowing what you want is half the battle. In the event that nobody has that perfect Chukka you’ve composed in your mind, bespoke footwear may be an option?

Below you will find a selection which includes Alden, Crockett and Jones, Barker and more.
