Any chance you can post some pics of the creasing please?  I was considering a Chelsea in Vitello Etrusco and would be curious to see.

Kicking around some ideas.

 

Hidro jasper monkey boot on 363 with vibram lug sole. Anybody intrigued by the idea of getting their Agnelli on with a suede tank of a boot?

 

 

looking into black stingray seamless whole cuts. Maybe blake for a low profile evening look on a black sole with flush taps. Can anyone comment on blake durability with EB in their rotation?

Can't do a Stingray Seamless Wholecut, sorry.

Sorry for the carp phone photos but that's the best I can provide now. Please note that I have only worn the boots for a few tomes at home.

That's normal creasing.

Is it normal for Chelsea boots? None of my other calf leather shoes or boots have so much increasing even after dozens of wearing.

Yes it is normal for chelsea boots. I the similar creasing on G&G Burnham boots. Keep in the mind these are whole-cut boots so it is normal to see more creasing. The similar creasing happens on a wholecut shoes too.

Thanks. This is my first pair of Chelsea boots and Bonafe so I am not sure it is due to the model or the leather.

Thanks for the pics / insights @bsmw / @laufer

 

I wear shoes pretty hard, so perhaps a calf chelsea is not the best first boot purchase for me.  I thought a calf chelsea / suede chukka combo would be a smart start to a boot rotation, but maybe I would be better served by switching the leather and shoe pairings.

 

I love the suede version of the chelsea on skoak's website and would expect the softer leather to be less prone to creasing.  There is also a chukka GMTO going on that was the exact chelsea makeup I was considering (74945 / Vitello Entrusco / Dainite).

shoes crease with wear.

Sage advice.  Diminishing returns have officially set in with regards to analysis of my boot search.  

 

Skoak's GMTO Chukka sounds perfect and will be my first purchase.  So let it be written, so let it be done.

Suede is fantastic for a Chelsea, especially if you're worried about creasing.  I think my Carmina fox suede chelseas from this summer are looking great with a bit of wear.  I was flexing my toes a bit in this so it's rolled up a bit more than usual.

The more I see the suede chelsea, the more I like the idea.  I hope to add one to the rotation down the road.  

 

Thanks for the pic.
