Shoe Carnival : What are Chelsea Boots Anyway?

10/06/2021 | 11:16am EST

Get the scoop on the endless style of these slip-on boots

What is a Chelsea Boot?

Chelsea boots are ankle-skimming boots with dual elastic panels, allowing them to pull on easily. Chelsea boots usually come in leather, suede, or synthetic alternatives, and will often have a slightly tapered toe. While most Chelseas feature a low-profile sole with a low heel, some modern incarnations now feature lugged platform soles or high heels for extra flair.

Origin of the Chelsea Boot

The first elastic ankle boots may have been made for no other than Queen Victoria. Legend has it the queen had requested a pair of boots without laces for horseback riding (as her shoe strings kept catching in her stirrups). Boasting it was the only shoe Queen Victoria would wear, the royal cobbler eventually introduced his design to the public. This style would be known simply as "paddock boots" in the British Isles from the mid-1800s through the 1950s.

The early 20th century saw a new variation on this design. Known as "Jodhpur boots," this ankle boot design out of India featured straps and buckles that wrapped around the ankle, designed specifically for horseback riding and polo. While the earliest Jodhpur boots lacked elastic paneling, later versions did as the paddock and Jodhpur boot trends merged.

The name change to "Chelsea" happened in the 1960s. Having come back into style, many artists, models, and musicians would wear their elastic ankle boots along the King's Road, a street in the borough of Chelsea in London. Over time, these boots became associated with the Chelsea neighborhood.

Across the pond, Americans were reintroduced to these laceless boots by none other than The Beatles. When John, Paul, George, and Ringo first debuted on The Ed Sullivan Show, the iconic "Beatle boot" was born. Long after Beatlemania waned, the Chelsea boot trend kept marching on.

How to Wear Chelsea Boots

Chelsea boots have an unrivaled ability to complement both men's and women's wardrobes. Easy to dress up or down, a Chelsea boot can elevate your everyday denim or add some casual swagger to a suit set. There truly is no wrong way to wear a Chelsea boot; it's all about finding the right boot for your look.
