Chukka boots have a timeless appeal and it is very easy to pair with almost any outfit because of its versatility. However, it is still very important to know which pairs are hot and which pairs are not.
Check out below the best-selling and top-rated products of 2013:
Clarks – When it comes to timeless classics, this brand will always be on the forefront especially with their Clarks Originals collection which includes the Desert Boot and the Wallabee.
When people talk about chukka boots, the first thing that usually comes to their minds is the Desert Boot which bears resemblance to those that were used during the mid-1940s by Officers from Great Britain. It is ankle high, has a flat toe, minimalist lacing, flat collar, and the famous genuine plantation crepe out-sole.
Another amazing pair is the Wallabee which also has the flat collar, crepe out-sole, and simple lacing closure that we all look for. But the most interesting feature is its moccasin-toe design which, coupled with the nature-formed last, made it as the world’s first comfort footwear.
Both products are available in leather and suede uppers and there are so many color combinations to choose from. It also comes in MEN’S, WOMEN’S, and even KID’S sizes which mean your entire family can have a pair each.
Sperry Top-Sider Boat Oxford Desert Boot – This is one of the fastest-rising pairs in terms of popularity because of the positive feed-backs it is receiving from customers. It looks similar to the classic desert but with a modern twist and it is lighter and more comfortable especially that it has the EVA heel cup that adds to its cushioning. One of the things that I really love with this footwear is its leather laces. It also has the Wave-Sipping design in the out-sole which Sperry Top-Sider is famous for.
Vans Chukka Low – This is perfect for the young and hip. Vans has been mixing and matching various designs and this product, which is designed by their skate team, is actually a combination of the Authentics and the chukka. This means that you get to enjoy the comfort, flexibility, and coolness of a sneaker with a hint of timeless classics. It is available either in suede or canvas uppers and there are so many colors to choose from. And of course, it still has the waffle-tread sole which offers a lot of grip.
John Varvatos Hipster Chukka – This brand is known for its retro style with a modern twist. The Hipster comes in so many variations that it is almost impossible for you not to find a pair that you will like. You can get the dark brown in full-grain leather upper for a classier footwear. Or choose the dark ghurka in suede with a slightly burnished toe and heel for that worn-out style. Some pairs have a tonal and some have a contrast stitching.
It has everything that we all look for from the flat collar, minimalist lacing, and a rounded-toe design. Its synthetic out-sole is also treaded and looks very impressive.
Frye Oliver – This is the most popular pair from all the Frye boots. It looks very elegant with its chukka design and quality full-grain leather upper making it ideal for casual and business attire. Its out-sole is made from leather as well but has rubber inserts for traction. It also comes with a stacked heel to make you look sexier. Aside from being stylish, the Oliver is comfortable with its padded leather insoles and long-lasting because it is well-constructed.
Red Wing Heritage Work – This brand is a big believer of hard work and as a result, they create durable, functional, and comfortable boots without compromising style. The Work Chukka features smooth but long-lasting upper with detailed contrast stitching for style. Its comfort features include a leather foot-bed that eventually forms to the contours of your foot. Its rubber out-sole also adds to its cushioning and provides grip especially that it is textured. And most importantly, this is made in the U.S.A.
Sofft Boone – This women’s boot has been creating a lot of buzz in the fashion world. It has the flat collar, rounded-toe, and ankle-high shaft design, but it looks extra stylish as it has an over-sized buckle and strap as its decorative closure. It also features a synthetic lining and the insole is padded. The Sofft Boone has a welted-construction so it will last long and a stacked heel which will boost height.
Born Fina – This may not look like your typical chukka boot for women because it is very stylish and has a heel height of 2 ¾ inches. Its upper is made from quality full-grain leather upper with the famous Opanka construction making it long lasting and flexible. It also has a lea-wrapped heel and its out-sole is lugged so you do not have to worry about stability with this one. You will look very sexy pairing it with shorts or skirt.
