As the weather starts to chill and temperatures drop here in the fabulous city of Toronto, on those cooler but dry fall days, step into a pair of Chelsea boots. The Chelsea boot also known as Dealer boots and are tight fitting ankle high boots that first became popular in the 1960’s. The standard signature of these boots is the elastic sides allowing for an easy slip on and off! Of course top designers Gucci and John Varvatos have taken this to the next step. These designer boots do not boast the signature sides but yet signatures of both designers. The Gucci Chelsea is adorned with horse-bit hardware which has become an iconic symbol of Gucci. The John Varvatos Chelsea features a button opening providing a classic yet updated look.
Gucci: $840 available in sizes 6-13
John Varvatos: $495, available in sizes 7-12
