The Chelsea Boot Co Est. 1851

In the year 1851 Queen Victoria issued a challenge to the royal shoemakers to make a pair of boots minus shoe laces which were constantly getting tangled in her stirrups whilst indulging in her favorite past time of horse riding. Our first boots were made by J. Sparkes-Hall employing the use of vulcanized rubber (elastic) which allowed Queen Victoria to slip the boots on and off easily. For almost two centuries now, the Chelsea Boot has endured as a true style icon incorporating the highest standard and design elements. This unique pair of boots is significant, not only for their extraordinary provenance, but also for their innovative design. A Brand fit for a Queen and probably the most comfortable boot you'll ever wear!
