Chelsea boots never really needed Kanye West to be cool. They were already the Beatle boots—famously worn by the Fab Four—and popular with the British mod aesthetic of 1960s. ÂBut ever since the hip-hop artist started wearing pairs of them by Bottega Veneta, Chelsea boots have seen something of a resurgence, and have remained a reliable, on-trend staple for any modern footwear rotation.
These days, Chelsea boots are paired with tapered denim jeans of different colors (the trick is contrast: dark boots with light stonewashed jeans; light brown boots with dark jeans) for a look that’s just the right balance of dressy and casual, with a pinch of rock n’ roll. Here are some solid pairs you can get here in the Philippines.
