Are Chelsea Boots a Fall Shoe Staple?

Dear readers, have you ever heard of the Chelsea boot? It wasn’t until I really got into music in middle school that I heard of this style of footwear. I was instantly intrigued. They weren’t like any other boot I’d seen before because they took on an odd shape and maybe even took cues from […]
