Whole lotta Chelsea boots out on them streets lately, eh? Maybe too many. Every trend-hopping, celebrity-aping lame you know has got themselves a pair of the classic slip-on mid-tops. And sure, they’re pretty sleek and all, but you’re not about to literally follow in the footsteps of those guys. No, you’re a trailblazer, a true pioneer of panache. That’s why you’re going to be the first man on your block wearing Jodhpurs.
Named for the city in western India, Jodphur boots share the same elegant lines and seductive curves as the Chelsea, but feature the welcome addition of a trim, buckled strap. This version, from Beckett Simonon, is rendered in smooth, polished Italian calfskin and will complement your finest suits or favourite black jeans the way Kelly Rowland does Nelly.
Oh, yeah, and all those dude-bros in Chelsea boots will feel like absolute knuckleheads the moment you roll in rocking these babies. That moment alone will be worth the price of admission.
