Buy Chelsea Boots On Sale

As well as being sought after by the stylish gentleman they are also popular with women and in fact, Queen Victoria was officially the first owner of a pair of Chelsea boots. Her bootmaker, J. Sparkes-Hall is credited with inventing the boot in 1837. His invention came to fruition following the development of vulcanised rubber. This gave him the idea of creating a boot with an elastic side that could be pulled on and off easily.

Sparkes-Hall filed a patent for his creation of the Chelsea boot in 1851 claiming, ‘She (Queen Victoria) walks in them daily and thus gives the strongest proof of the value she attaches to the invention’.

The appeal of the elastic sided boot continued to grow, firstly as footwear for riding horses but by the mid nineteenth century had become a must-have fashion accessory and this trend continued up to the beginning of the First World War in 1914.

The Chelsea boots real next show of prominence came during the 1960’s when the Mod culture arrived on the scene. This was the time when young people had more money than ever and fashion became the order of the day with image conscious youngsters wearing tailored suits, driving their iconic scooters and wearing only the most fashionable footwear, Chelsea boots being the number one choice.

Many, understandably also think that The Beatles played a huge part. The most famous band of all time were often seen wearing them!
