Frequently Asked Questions about Chelsea Boots

Why are they called Chelsea boots?

The Chelsea boot – which is characterised by its vulcanised rubber side panel – is named after the trendy Chelsea area of London. This style of boot first gained popularity after Queen Victoria wore them in 1851, but at that time, they were still called ‘elastic ankle boots’. It wasn’t until they had a resurgence in popularity with the mod-culture ‘Chelsea Set’ in the 1950s that the name stuck, and the rest is history!

Can I wear Chelsea boots with a dress?

Yes. Chelsea boots look amazing with dresses, despite the boot’s long history as a work boot. Modern Chelsea boot styles have been designed with the contemporary wardrobe in mind and there are many feminine options available that look great with a dress. Heeled Chelsea boots can be paired with almost any style, from short to long, tight to flowy. The classic low-heeled Chelsea also looks great with a short skater dress, shift dress or fluttery skirt. If you want to retain the rugged look, pair some low-heeled Chelsea boots with a denim dress or skirt. 

What are the best outfits that go with Chelsea boots?

Chelsea boots can be paired with many dress styles, from flowy to tight and in every length imaginable. An oversized knitted jumper dress will pair perfectly with your boots in cooler months, just grab some tights and a scarf and you’re good to go. Another great option is to don your heeled Chelseas with dress pants and a nice blouse. For more casual wear, you can pair your boots with your favourite denim, from baggies to skinnies and every style in between. You can find more styles at our Chelsea Boots Trend Insight blog post.

How to Measure Your Size

1. You will need a ruler, pen, and a piece of A4 paper.

 Place the piece of paper flat on the ground and stand on it. Make sure your foot is flat and your foot is in the middle of the piece of paper.

 Draw a mark behind your heel and another in front of your longest toe. If one of your feet is larger than the other, use the longer foot to calculate your size.

4. Measure the distance between the the two lines.

5. Find your measurement on the ladies’ size chart above to determine your correct size. If your measurement falls between two sizes, we recommend taking into consideration whether you're purchasing a closed in shoe such as a boot or ballet flat and whether you'll be wearing socks or stockings.

Also remember your left and right foot will vary in length and width, so choose the size you think will be most comfortable for you.

Each shoe style is fit tested in Australia and we do everything we can to make a fit as close as possible to the correct AU standard sizing measurements.

Use these sizes and measurements as a guide only. You know your feet best!
