Chukka boots have been around for a long time and they are said to be originally from India. Of course, they were mostly worn by the British Army who were based in India at this time and more commonly worn by off-duty polo players. The name “chukka” is said to be derived from the playing period in polo which is called a 'Chukka' or a 'Chukker'.
A Chukka boot can be characterised as a low ankle boot and usually features two or three-eyelets, an open lacing system and a rounded toe. The chukka boot's appeal lies in its ability to be worn with a large array of outfits. Reliable and versatile, chukka boots are suited to all seasons.
