Over the years that I have been obsessed with Chelsea Boots, I've realized something. As a woman, I've always loved seeing guys wear Chelsea Boots. There's something about it. Maybe it's because they've outgrown the Vans and Nike Free Runs (which I have nothing against). But the Chelsea Boot gives some type of maturity but not as much as a loafer or an oxford gives. But THEY NEED TO STOP BUYING THE WRONG CHELSEA BOOTS!
ASOS, Forever 21 and H&M are stores that I love because they have really good tailoring and VERY cheap. But there's a reason why they're cheap.The quality of their clothing isn't the best. I've seen their Chelsea Boots -- in fact, my first Chelsea Boots were from Forever 21. Today, I saw it under a pile of my other shoes. It was all beat up and looked really cheap and ugly! From my first Chelsea boots, I've grown to look at other brands (sometimes unknown brands) and tried to find better ones without spending $900+ (like YSL). I bought black leather Chelsea boots from "Poshmark" for only $30 and that was 3 years ago and it's still looks brand new. I also found these sand brown boots with a wood sole at Dillards for only $25 and it's been my favorite ever since and it's lasting better than my Forever 21 "Chelsea Boots".
The better quality Chelsea boots are obviously gonna cost more than the ASOS, H&M and Forever 21 ($30-$60) -- but there are some great quality boots from $80-$150.
STOP BUYING THESE!
AND START BUYING THESE!
WHERE AM I?
