The Chelsea boot, invented for Queen Victoria in the mid-19th century, was shaped by London's creative scene in the late 1960s. The term “Chelsea boot” was primarily established by the artists from the Chelsea district of London who wore the shoe. The Beatles' choice of shoes in the 1960s also spread the model further.
But the DM 2976 are not the only absolute Chelsea classics.
Blundstone also offers sturdy, functional and stylish boots. The Australian company has been producing the Blundstone 500 (“The Original”) as a work shoe since 1870.
However, boots have long ceased to be pure work shoes. Originally constructed as a work shoe, we know Blunnies as sturdy, comfortable and versatile shoes. In addition to the Classic series, there is now a Comfort series, dress boots, or work shoes (CES1-3) and many more.
We have also been offering Chelsea boots from both companies in a wide variety of colors and designs for many years. So if you're now in the mood for a cool Blundstone or DM 2976, then feel free to come to our store and we'll help you find the right shoe or take a look at our large selection online here .
