Chelsea boots were the walking boot of the Victorian Era, and now in 2018, they're the hottest shoe for fall! The boot's been rocked by musicians like Kanye West, Harry Styles, and Lenny Kravitz, and it'll put some extra swagger in your step — maybe even moves like Jagger — whether you’re in your 9-to-5 slim-fit suit or your everyday T-shirt and jeans. You can bet your boots that an average Joe can pull off this fancy footwear! Check out our favorite Chelsea boots for men, along with some simple styling tips.
