The Chukka Boot or Desert Boot has both a military and sporting heritage. The lace-up ankle boots were once worn by British polo players in India, the name itself originates from the word “chukker” which signifies a period of a polo game.
Straight out of the box, the ﬁrst thing to do with your suede shoe is to apply a “suede protector” spray. The preemptive spray will partially water proof your shoes and keep a lot of the dirt and stains from sticking to them.
To maintain your suede shoe it is best to regularly brush them with a suede brush. Brush them while dry, do not press to hard and always in the same direction to keep the nap uniform. For more persistent stains that wont come off with the brush, use a suede eraser. Apply a light pressure.
To revive your suede shoe, use the steam from a kettle then brush the hairs with a rubber suede brush.
HOW TO STYLE
The Puerto Madero works best with a good pair of jeans but can also be easily dressed up. The boot is available in two colours of suede, light brown and dark brown.
CONSTRUCTION & LEATHER
The Chukka is constructed using three pieces of outer material and finished with vibram rubber soles. The soles are lightweight with a discreet dotted surface, for a grip to face all kinds of weathers. As for all Casa Fagliano shoes, this chukka is Goodyear welted, all the elements are at hand for a boot made to last.
The Puerto Madero uses a soft suede from Italy, the leather is handpicked to only select un-split skins, ensuring the durability of the suede.
