5 Days, 5 Ways: How to Wear a Chukka Boot
the shoe that keeps on giving
If the quintessential SG Reader were to wear a shoe—just one—it would be a chukka boot. The ankle-high leather boots with suede or leather uppers, leather or rubber soles, and open lacing with two or three pairs of eyelets, are a timeless piece of footwear that can be worn year round. They work equally well mixed into casual or more elevated outfits, and look great with basically everything you already own.
The beeswax leather pair below are desert boots, a type of chukka boots (the same way an orange is a type of fruit), and you’ve probably noticed them pop up in quite a few past 5 Days, 5 Ways. Meaning? It was about time for the spotlight to shine their way!
SG Says: Easy to dress up or down, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a shoe more universally #SGapproved by the whole team than the chukka boot.
Wear it well: Ease into the work week with a slightly more casual shoe than the rest of your office wear.
Wear it well: Update your standard shirt & sweater combo with cozy cords for a pre-fall lewk.
Wear it well: When the weather starts to cool, layer the chambray under the sweatshirt under the topcoat for the most casual-yet-pulled-together combo possible.
