Chukka boots have evolved from their original form to much more sophisticated footwear for men. You can dress up or dress down with them.    

The Chukka boot is the true embodiment of classic elegance, ideal to pair with casual and dressy attire. You should invest in these versatile boots.  

History of Chukka Boots

The name Chukka was originally coined after the name Chukker which is a Hindi word that means moving a round circle. Chukka means a seven-and-a-half-minute period in the Polo game. They originate from India but by a British man named Nathan Clark. 

Clark found the need to introduce heavy-duty shoes to the British army in World War II as their other option was lightweight desert shoes. It was made with two leather pieces stitched to its rubber soles. They become a durable yet comfortable option. 

Later these shoes traveled to Britain with the Duke of Windsor and they became a hit among common civilians. It is now a stylish ankle-length boot with three laces and the toe shape can vary slightly. Its thin leather sole provides the comfort of walking for men. These amazing boots soon became a staple in every man’s life as they adapt extremely well to almost all outfits. 

They look very classy if you are looking for other options than Oxford shoes, and Derby shoes, Chukka boots are the best option for you. 

Desert Boots VS. Chukka Boots for Men

Originally people used to confuse the two but the difference is huge. Desert boots belong closely with the chukka boots family, with lightweight construction, unlined interior, and crepe rubber soles (often light-colored). They are generally considered more casual due to their relaxed design.

Chukka boots on the other hand have either dark or light-colored thin and hard leather soles. Desert boots are a relaxed version, you can wear them comfortably for casual wear. Chukka boots are the icons of versatility and they can make your outfit look stunning. 

If you are looking for a change and want to experiment with your footwear options then choose Chukka boots! At Leather Skin Shop we have a wide range of leather boots and shoes to match your style.

How to Take Care of Your Chukka Boots

Buying an amazing pair of footwear is not everything, you must take care of them. Here are a few tips for you to consider. 

Begin with lightly dusting your Chukka boots with a soft brush to remove any dirt or debris. Then proceed further with a gentle soap to clean your boot’s surface. Avoid making your leather boots too wet, as it is not good for them. 

After finishing this procedure, move on to polish your shoes with a mild conditioner. This treatment will keep your Chukka boots shiny and new while protecting them from drying out. 

After treating your boots, you must store them well. If you don’t wear your Chukka boots regularly then make sure to stuff them with newspaper before storing them away. This will retain their shape. Keep away from sunlight to avoid any sort of fading, and also keep them in a well-ventilated area so there is no moisture build-up. 

You can keep your beloved Chukka boots safe and free from wear and tear for a long time by following these steps.
