I'm looking for a pair of calf leather laceless short ankle boots, similar to that of what Sean Connery wore in Thunderball as James Bond

I couldn't find any. Most chelsea boots are too high

Thanks!

The shorter ones are hard to find these days. Even elasticated shoes seem more common. The shortest I've found has been Brooks' Peal chelseas. They're shorter than most of my others.

IIRC, they're by Alfred Sargent, though I'm not looking at them to confirm. Great boots, if they're short enough for you.

The elastic in those boots always makes them look so cheap to me.

My search indicates that Crockett and Jones Chelsea is pretty decent
