The Chukka

By definition, a chukka boot is simply an ankle-length boot with three to four eyelets for lacing. The name is derived from the game of polo, as early models were akin to the boots worn by British polo players. Soft and flexible like their cousin, the desert boot, chukkas are often crafted from leather or suede. But this spring, SeaVees is offering a moccasin version in brushed twill. Ideal for warm weather, the hand-sewn Bayside Moccasins are grounded with a jute foxing tape at the sole and lined in naturally antibacterial bamboo canvas to keep feet dry and odor free. They're the perfect shoe for guys that want the style and durability of a chukka and the cool comfort of a canvas sneaker.
