This fall, I’ve definitely seen a return to more classic silhouettes, particularly ankle boots made of gorgeous leather or suede with low-stacked heels. Even though this may seem like an extremely specific style, I’ve actually had a hard time picking a pair to invest in because there is such a variety of boots in my favorite stores nowadays, until I saw these boots from J. Crew.
These boots are actually Chelsea boots, otherwise known as dealer boots, jodhpur boots or paddock boots, and they were extremely popular in the 1960s as everyone from the Rolling Stones to the Beatles wore them. I love the subtle rock-and-roll vibe that these boots can bring to an outfit. Unfortunately, $248 is a lot more than I can afford right now, but I was thrilled to find cheaper alternatives that still have the same feel—and almost half the price of J. Crew’s.
