    Snakeskin Chukka Boot

    Euro 480

    This is a very fancy, lace-up, dress boot in very nicely matched  brown snakeskin, with the addition of a decorative brass buckle.  Not to be confused with the heavily built chukkas for the outback, this is an elegant shoe for town or country. Of course tremendously eye-catching worn with everything from jeans or khakis to handsome slacks or tweeds and blazers.

    Both the Chukka Boot and the Jodhpur Boot derive from the 19th century British presence in India, and the discovery of the game of Polo in the 1850s by British tea planters on the Burmese border with India. (A ‘chukker’ is a period of play in Polo). Both boots were readily adapted by the British at home and quickly became staples of the Gentleman’s wardrobe. The Chukka Boot is a casual, sporting boot to just above the ankle, plain toed, fastening with two (although sometimes up to five) lacings or strap (as in a Monk). The Chukka Boot is often called the ‘Desert Boot’ through being much adopted -in suede- by British forces.
