Suede Chelsea boots are basically the bomber jackets of footwear right now (that is, they’re having what they call “a moment”), but for some guys, the price of entry for a great pair is just too steep. Around 500 bucks for Common Projects boots, all the way up to nearly $900 for a pair of Saint Laurents.
Enter the New Republic by Mark McNairy Houston Chelsea.
At $99, these things are a steal, even at twice the price. Especially since they have all the elements of a much more expensive boot. There’s the suede upper, the leather insole, and the soft crepe sole, not to mention the sleek styling. All of which will make people think you spent five times more than you did.
You also get four colors to choose from: sand, grey, brown, and black. Hell, buy one in each color and you’ll still come in under the price of most other Chelseas on the market. Pre-order them now at newrepublicman.com and they’ll be shipped to you within the next two weeks.
