Chelsea Boots History

The design of the Chelsea boot is credited to Queen Victoria’s shoemaker J. Sparks-Hall who claimed that the shoe was indeed Queensfavourite given its practicalness for both walking and riding. Clearly, Queen Vic was ahead of the times!

The Chelsea boot took off globally with its close association with the London mod scene and the swinging sixties. Worn by the ‘trendy’ Kings Road Set and by the early Beatles and the Stones. Indeed, the Beatles asked theatrical and ballet shoemaker Anello & Davide to create a variant of the Chelsea boot in 1961 with higher Cuban heels and this style became known as the Beatle boot.

The fashion-conscious Mods loved the attention to detail and Italian inspired high fashion design of the boot whose style worked well with sharp suits or straight leg trousers or skirts to reveal the ankle detail.

A highly comfortable boot which today retains street style with a cool legacy worn today by the likes of Kanye West, Harry Styles and the Arctic Monkey’s Alex Turner.
