Chelsea Boots  

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am about to order a pair of brown C&J Chelsea 5's. These will be for jeans 95% of the time. Should I go leather or rubber sole? I am leaning towards rubber for the durability in the various weather climates and for the more "solid" look with jeans. Thoughts? Any reason I shouldnt go with the brown?

I'd go for the leather. I think it's more elegant.

If they're for jeans that have even a moderate bootcut I'd go with dainite to add a bit more substance. My C&J Chelseas have a leather sole and it's just a bit too sleek, in my opinion, for 'streetwear'. I reserve them for dress and casual trousers.

I think it depends on the formality of your style. I usually wear a sport coat with jeans so leather-soled chelsea boots work better with what I normally wear. If I wore lots of hoodies or something, I'd probably choose differently. dan

I would say leather can be dressed both up and down - whereas rubber tends to be harder to dress up. So, at least in my opinion, leather is more versatile. I will agree that rubber holds up better to fouler weather. I think the brown is great - I have both black and brown.

I completely agree, and will move this thread to streetwear and denim, where it belongs. When will you guys learn?
