It's a secret weapon kind of shoe—a good chukka has the power to add a sharp contrast to whatever you're wearing.


The "chukka" name is derived from the game of polo, as early models were akin to the boots worn by British polo players.

How to Wear It

Pair them with your beat-up jeans, white denim and worn-in cotton chinos. Let them give your dress pants a shot of relaxed cool. And the brave among us rock them with shorts.

What to Look for

A comfortable fit, a flexible sole and a color that will complement your wardrobe.
