The Chelsea boot was originally designed for the Queen Victoria upon her request, she wished to have a riding boot that would also be suitable for walking. The boot was designed to be easily slipped on and off, with elasticated side panels and a pull tab.
Nowadays, the equine boot has stepped out of the country side and invited itself into the city life of the modern gentleman.
It is important to regular maintain your shoes to ensure there longevity. Before applying any products make sure to clean your shoes using a humidiﬁed sponge or cloth, then let them dry.
Once dry, use a conditioning cream to hydrate the leather, which will bring back its suppleness and shine. Use a cloth to apply the cream, then wait 10 to 20 minutes before bufﬁng with a soft cloth.
If you want to give your patina an extra shine you can apply a good quality wax polish. Use a cotton rag twisted around your ﬁngers to apply the wax, then remove the excess with a soft brush. The wax adds a small degree of protection against water and dirt.
