    Not necessarily the style of boots I think of for this kind of use but most definitely the leather and construction that comes to mind. Excellent choice sir!!!

    I think chelsea boots are perfect for this because they are much more flexible around the vamp area than lace up boots. So kneeling down etc is more comfortable.

    I’m the same, I don’t mind getting them muddy, wet etc but always clean, polish, shoe trees etc too.

    I’ve never had Chelsea’s but can definitely see the appeal.
