Leather Chelsea Boots have always been a part of Burberry’s history, drawing on the brand’s British roots and refined mod aesthetic. Now, the iconic brand is teaming up with Barneys New York for a fresh take on the footwear classic. Crafted from rich genuine leather and finished with a crepe sole and unique perforated detailing, this exclusive silhouette is part of a limited-edition capsule collection between the two brands.

These boots draw inspiration from the traditional Chelsea Boot, popularized in London in the 1960s. Slim fitting and hitting just above the ankle, the boots feature an elastic ankle panel and pull tab for easy on-and-off transition (You’ll never have to fight with this boot). Medallion brogue detailing at the toe is complemented by additional dot perforations along the elastic gore.

The crepe rubber sole updates the look and provides unmatched comfort. With a weightier construction, crepe rubber absorbs the shock of every step, which is perfect for people who walk a lot during the day. And you don’t have to worry about the sole breaking down – crepe rubber was used for the desert combat boots issued to British soldiers fighting in North Africa during WWII.

Leaning toward the dressier side of casual, they look great with a pair of jeans and crew neck sweater. For a more polished look, try flat front wool pants with a solid cardigan. Then add a necktie or scarf for color accent.
