Should I tuck my jeans into my black Chelsea boots?

Hey guys I'm new here and just wanted to get some opinions on whether I should tuck my jeans into my black Chelsea boots? 

 
 
 
 
I have been wearing it with my leather jacket and grey top. I went out in it today though and got some strange look of some guy really stared down my shoes as I walked past and I wasn't sure whether it was a good or bad stare. This is my first time ever owning a pair of Chelsea boots so i'm not sure if that looks good or not? The jeans are long in length for me and when I put my Chelsea boots on they naturally tuck themselves in automatically so I just left it like that. 
 
The way i'm thinking is, i'm not dressing them with Chinos or anything or dressing fancy like going to an interview, so I might as well tuck them in right? Otherwise what was the point in spending my money on Chelsea boots only to cover them up so they result in looking like normal shoes rather than ankle boots?

So people saying no what is the purpose of buying ankle boots if you're covering up the boot, essentially making it look like a dress shoe or something?

The purpose is to protect your ankles from all manner of things.

Only the female sex stuffs stuff into boots.

No comment on the boots and the combos tho.

Alright, thanks for your advice guys. Sorry if I came off as annoying by the questioning. And for calling me a troll on my first thread, top bloke.

The purposes have a purpose and it is not show. Don't tuck them in un less you want to appear an ostentatious nerd.

Don't lose any sleep over it. There's just a lot of teasing on this forum.

Generally, one wears a boot instead of a shoe when you want to keep yourself warmer and drier. Think of Chelsea boots as warmer dress shoes. smile.gif

When someone shoots you down hard in the dressing up game, it's the most effective way to develop an eye for working combos. This way you learn the definite nonos. It's not teasing. It's hard mentoring. You have a long ways to go but the beginning is always somewhere.

The height of the boot is largely for ankle support and keeping out dirt and water, it doesnt effect warmth much unless they are lined.

Ps. Those arent chelsea boots, they have a zipper, chelseas have side elastics.
