A little equestrian, a little mod — English cowboy — the Chelsea is one of our all-time favorite boots, with a shape that goes all the way back to the 1800s. These are made in the Marche region of Italy with a Goodyear welt and a particularly elegant silhouette through the toe. And in rich black calfskin, this pair has a lot of range. Excellent cold-weather dress shoes, especially when you're not sure if the occasion even calls for dress shoes... Chelseas have a way of looking as formal or as casual as you want them to. In fact, in black, they're our go-to boots for black tie.
