21 BEST CHELSEA BOOTS FOR MEN THAT GO WITH EVERYTHING 2024

Few things in the male wardrobe are likely to link reigning monarchs and rockstars. Nonetheless, the best Chelsea boots for men have managed to attract wearers as diverse as this, a most notable achievement.

Of course, it’s not as simple as just slipping on any old pair. You need to look out for the hallmarks of quality before you reach into your pocket. “The quality of the material is the most important when buying men’s Chelsea boots,” says Dune London men’s shoe buyer, Louise Godding. “Premium, buttery leather will age well and can be polished up easily while adding character to your look.”

When it comes to your suede selection, length matters: in this case, the shorter, the better. “Short-pile suede is a sign of quality and will wear better. Long-pile suede, on the other hand, will get scruffy quickly,” says Godding.

You can learn a lot about the quality of men’s Chelsea boots from the shape of their toes, too. “The curved shape – which is created using heat and pressure on the front of the boot – is key. Any chunky seams or lining creases can rub with wear, so always try them on to check for a smooth finish inside.”
