New trends come up in the shoe industry every year, some of these are great and some of them are craps. Just like the popular Chelsea boots, the Chukka boots hover in the ankle area.

Although the leather Chukka boots for men are one of the most popular men’s boot styles now, the boots are not meant for everyone; as popular as the style is, not everyone knows how to make it work. It is the perfect style for any man who wants a pair of casual boots that pairs easily with jeans or other casual pants and who is ready to wear them rightly. The leather Chukka is the perfect choice of casual footwear for men who appreciate authentic heritage style.

The Chukkas are built to offer unmatched comfort. They have high-traction latex-rubber out soles that give cushioning effects when they are worn on uneven surfaces. There are many varieties of the leather chukka boots and they are available in a range of materials and prices. You can easily find a pair that marches your tastes. Personally, I prefer the suede chukka. The full leather chukkas can look too formal when paired with jeans, but with the built-in durable soles and rugged casual looks, the suede chukka are not just comfortable, they can also be paired with all kinds of outfits including suits.

When you are ready to drop the sneakers, get a Chukka boot. It can replace your sneakers. Chukka boots with jeans can work really easily just as jeans would work with a hi-top or regular boot. You can tuck in the jeans, allow it rest on the ankle section of the boot, or you can allow it to sit on the boot.

The boot can also work in more relaxed formal outfits such as skinny trousers and chinos. You can also pair it with a polo shirt if you are looking to create an English Gentleman look. You can pair your Chukka boots with a suit (if you can pull it off) to create a true formal yet casual look. When you pair one with chinos, it will give the whole attire a casually formal look but when worn with formal pants, it gives them a less formal look.
