If there is a pair of shoes we can describe as ‘timeless’, then Chelsea Boots would be the one. Dating back to the Victorian era when they were used purely for practical reasons, with their elasticated sides making them the perfect shoes to slip on and off when horse-riding. It was years before they became a fashion statement in the sixties, thanks to The Beatles and mods. Step back into the 1960s with an iconic pair of Chelsea Boots: these cute ankle boots make us feel like a true sixties kid. Named after the renowned high-class London borough, Chelsea, it is no wonder fans of hipster and grunge, as well as celebrities like Alexa Chung, Victoria Beckham and Kanye West are rocking these vintage boots. Male or female, summer or winter, they can be worn by anyone, with plenty of inspiration on Tumblr.
