Chukka boots review #2 and outfits (PL)

I have finished my latest post (link here) with a conclusion that I would not mention Saint Crispins as they exceed my limit price of 400GBP.

Suede chukka boots review (PL)

Some say the Chukka boot is a Fall shoe but I would say it is Fall-Winter-Spring shoe. Especially if the temperatures in your area do not drop much below zero or if there is not so much snow in the winter. It is more a casual than dress shoe although I would advise you to wear it as often as …
