A Bad-Ass Chukka Boot

It’s hard to make a chukka boot look bad, which would entail that it is easy to make a nice looking chukka boot. But this where it gets tricky, as I don’t actually believe this rationality. Chukka boots, for me, are just one of those things that almost always look nice, no matter what the last shape is (hence the word ‘almost’). But in reality, it’s hard to make a beautiful (being the key word) chukka boot. Saint Crispin’s have frickin’ nailed it on the head! Everything about this from the elongated toe, the last shape, the tight bevelled waist, the derby stitch design and the short height of it go so perfectly together, that I would almost call it the holy grail of chukka boots. Almost however, as it would be tough to say whose is better between this and the lovely Koji Suzuki model shown way back when (here). Nevertheless, I love a blue suede shoe, particularly when it is a model like this, and the more that I see Saint Crispins shoes, the more that I respect the brand, as they rarely make something that is shy of beautiful….not too many makers achieve that….not in my eyes at least!

  1. There is some American upstart called Justin Fitzpatrick, who is about to launch an even better-shaped chukka under the new “J. Fitapatrick” brand.

    Not in blue suede though, but frankly there are quite a few blue suede chukkas around these days.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of enthusiasm.

    These are honestly some of the best chukkas I’ve seen in my whole life.

  3. Haha @ the anonymous tough guy with the homosexuality fixation. Every blog gets them eventually…thanks for coming; don’t let your mother walk in. 😉
