Summertime is here and it seems intuitive to pop on the flip-flops and other sandals during this season, but guess what - wearing boots in the summer makes perfect sense as well. As counter-intuitive as it might sound, the fact is that there are gonna be times when you’d need to wear summer boots. Now, who wouldn’t love a great pair of leather boots that can serve you all year round? As the spring season gives way to bright summer, your shoe wardrobe could benefit from a few lightweight boots to keep your style on point.
There's something about a boot that pulls an outfit together, which even the greatest pair of sneakers can’t do. Dressed up, casual, or anywhere in between - the main key to wearing boots in summers is to lighten up the weight, material and cut down the height of the shoe to make it something you can wear without suffocating your legs. This year, be confident to step out in leather boots as long as you think: Chelsea boots, Chukka boots, Combat boots or Brogue boots. Basically, anything non-bulky and ankle height. Avoid heavier boots that often have a warm lining and you can look good and feel good in your men's summer boots. And the best part about all these boots is that they'll work for any time of the year.
This style of boots made their debut as a legitimate men’s shoe style in the 1960s, when a similar boot appeared on the feet of the members of the band, The Beatles. Fast forward several decades later and the boot now is the perfect pairing with a Wall Street business suit as well as a casual coffee shop outfit. Chelsea boot aka the short boot will save your feet and your style on both wet and hot days. These boots are easy to wear, not too heavy, and they look good with any preferred color of jeans or trousers.

Made with pure Portuguese leather, our Chelsea boot ages handsomely and has a water-resistant wax coating. Our special heel protector ensures that you can wear your pair of boots not just in summer but all year long.
