27 September 2019
Nothing hails the start of autumn quite like the reappearance of Chelsea boots. A style staple for the chillier months, read on to find the best Chelsea boots of 2019 - as chosen by Mumsnetters
1. Clarks Orinoco Club Boots, £69
Clarks' Orinoco Club boots have achieved cult status on the Style and Beauty boards. Chic, versatile and understated, you'll be pushed to find an outfit they don't pair well with. The perfect daytime companion, your feet will stay cushioned and supported no matter how much rushing around you do.
“I really like Clarks' Orinoco Club boots. They’re just so comfortable. I have some black and brown ones, which I bought a few years ago, but will probably re-purchase another black pair this winter as I've worn them so much.”Buy now from Clarks
2. George Brown Leather Chelsea Boots, £25
If you’re looking for something similar but for less than half the price, check out this brown leather pair from George. For under £30, you get excellent quality and comfort to boot (sorry). Boasting a classic style, their leather upper and elasticated side panelling make them look far pricier.
“I have two pairs of these. I loved them so much I went back for a second pair. They're amazing for the price."
“I've had mine for a month. I've worn them most days and absolutely love them. They still look as good as new and have been comfortable from day one.”Buy now from ASDA
3. Clarks Taylor Shine Ankle Boots, £65
If you're looking for a classic, no-fuss design, search no further than these tan beauties. Featuring a double elastic gusset so you can easily pull them on and off, the Cushion Soft technology enables you to run around all day without a complaint. Stylish and practical, they're available in black and navy, too.
“Clarks do some fantastic cushioned boots called Taylor Shine.”
“I’ve got the Clarks Taylor Shine ones too. They’re on their second year and I can wear them for hours – so comfy.”Buy now from Clarks
4. Dr. Martens Flora Chelsea Boots, from £99.99
Another firm favourite among Mumsnetters is the Dr. Martens Flora Chelsea boot in black. Constructed to last and featuring a pin dot lining, this pair is made from smooth leather that’s easy to wipe clean – just make sure you use a damp cloth and allow them to air dry. Than add some wax polish to keep them shiny for years to come.
“Dr. Martens Flora Chelsea boots are just lovely.”
“Another vote here for Dr. Martens Flora Chelsea boots. I've had mine for about a year, they get a lot of wear and still look good. I spend a lot of time on my feet and they're really comfy.”Buy now from Amazon
5. Joules Westbourne Chelsea Boots, from £55.95
A classic design with a modern upgrade, the Joules Westbourne boots have style in spades. Apparently, Chelsea boots date back to Victorian times (who knew?), but thanks to a splash of leopard print, this pair is anything but stuck in the past. Transforming a simple jeans-and-tee ensemble with a statement print has never been so easy.
“They’re super comfy and have plenty of grip.”
“Joules Chelsea boots are my go-to forever!”Buy now from Amazon
6. Ugg Bonham Chelsea Boots, from £125.79
For a Chelsea boot that’s a little chunkier, Mumsnetters opt for Ugg Bonhams. This second generation pair features a waterproof leather upper and cosy wool lining, keeping your feet warm and dry throughout the wetter winter months. Smart enough to wear to work but laid back enough for the weekend, you'll certainly get plenty of wear for your money.
“I've got a pair of Ugg Bonham boots I live in. They're sheepskin-lined and super comfy.”
“I’ve got the Ugg Bonham Chelsea boots. They're very comfy and super warm.”
“I recommend Ugg Bonhams. I can wear them all day even with plantar fasciitis and a torn ligament in one ankle.”Buy now from Amazon
7. Russell & Bromley Chelsea Boots, £275
On the pricier end of the scale is this pair of Chelsea boots from Russell and Bromley. But if you're after excellent quality, this sleek pair is a worthy investment. Sturdy and sophisticated, their polished, black leather composition will give any ensemble an added touch of elegance.
“I bought a pair of Russell and Bromley ones a few years ago and they're still going strong. Well-made, comfortable and good looking, they're well worth the investment.”Buy now from Russell & Bromley
