In our opinion at Barrels of London, a staple in every gentleman’s wardrobe should be a good pair of Chelsea boots. Impeccably maintained Chelsea boots, might we add. The Chelsea boot is the perfect winter shoe, combining versatility with effortless style. Perfect for a weekend’s adventure or for the infamous smart casual dress code in the office. We very much live by the philosophy that a good pair of shoes are a sound investment. So we want to make sure you buy right, not twice this Christmas.
Our recommendation to you is the Burlington Chelsea Boot by Russell & Bromley. As one might expect, they’re certainly not the cheapest option, with a price tag of £195 but we really do think they’re worth it.
As we are sure you are familiar, we highly advocate combining style with function and we were delighted to see the Burlington Chelsea boot does so perfectly. We love the combination of iconic, timeless design with the rubber, ‘Day & Night’ sole. Russell & Bromley have done what so few brands have done before them in pairing an undeniably practical sole to a beautiful, elegantly designed boot. We take our hats off to this.
Our Barrels of London top pick, is to opt for the dark brown suede finish but you can’t go wrong with any of the other stunning finishes. Look after these boots properly and they’ll be sure to last you some time.
