Meet our Chukka, the perfect balance between elegance and casual style ! Either with a suit or blue jeans, it will become your new daily basis!
First used by Polo players, the term Chukka come from Polo game periods, the "Chukkers".
Pied de Biche decided to give a special touch to this classic : subtle interplay of materials, between suede, smooth, full-grain and pull-up hides.
Chukka : a lace ankle boots for gentlemen
It was in winter 2016
We missed an unmissable in the man catalog Pied de Biche. This model was the Chukka: a model that could be worn in the office as well as to visit grandma.
These boots Chukka for men, it is since winter 2016 that it does not leave us. Today we present you the 3rd of the name, which has taken a new wave of youth.
For this new version, we worked a lot the yoke area at the laces. This time, it is more obvious, more contrasting. It's more dressed and on a shoe that wants to be casual, we found it clever.
It also reinforces our bias: the bi-material on each of our shoes. Here it is on the quarters that the material is different from the rest of the shoe. Perfect to combine this Chukka with most of your clothes.
Sewn blake: a guarantee of quality for this lace ankle boots
The soles are joined to the upper thanks to the Blake sewn: a sign of quality and durability. It's thanks to the Blake mount that you can design shoes that are softer, more elegant and thinner than most shoes on the market. Do not forget to put a skate at the shoemaker's. In the meantime, we offer you a temporary pad. Hop.
Very fat leather Or crafty nubuck
We present you 2 models :
Chukka boots in fat leather: guarantee of a resistant and waterproof shoe, while bringing a maximum of flexibility. This is the leather we chose for 2 models of the Chukka.
Suede Chukka boots (velvet calfskin): more dandy and more casual. It's okay with everything. For example, imagine them with raw jeans: it slaps eh.
These men's Chukka boots are flexible and that's thanks to the lining. It is made of natural cowhide - a leather that is applied on all our models of shoes (sneakers included). Also known for its resistance and breathability properties.
Chukka ankle boots with well made laces
Another advantage of this shoe Chukka V3 thanks to the inserts: the laces are proportioned differently, they are arranged so that is more elegant. This is a detail that will not deceive the most aficionados of you.
Our laces are waxed cotton. They are neither too thin nor too thick. Fine. Elegant. Visually something is happening. It's also that kind of touch that reinvents timeless things like these Chukka.
High, but not too high!
Just below the ankle
These Chukka boots are "Ankles Boots" man, shoes but not too high, that is to say a pair that does not rise higher than the ankle. The higher it is, the more formal it is. The less it is, the easier it is to wear. See?
The highlight of the show
For the heel, it's as usual: we stick it, then we nail it and we insert it directly half a skate. Like that behind you are good.
