A classic style that never lets me down.
17 July 2016
This style boot has been my reliable choice in footwear for some years. As long as I am able to find them for a good price, I will return to the DM Chelsea boot as long as they make them.
A nice shinny (but not glossy) leather, when new these boots can be worn as smart casual. As they start to wear, they are better kept for regular jeans.
The Air-wear soles make for a sturdy, supportive and comfortable walk. And although tight when first bought, it does not take long before the leather stretches and starts to mold to your feet.
If you have never bought DMs before, I would suggest trying them on in a shop first, because the sizing can run large. I selected 'fit as expected' for my review because I am used to buying a size 9 in DMs, when I am usually a 9.5 or even a 10 in other types of shoe.
RRP for these boots is around £120 direct from DM, but you can get them for far less if you hunt around online and have patience. I watched these boots in my wishlist for a couple of months, waiting for them to get close to the £75 inc postage mark, and to my surprise they hit a low of £66. Bargain!
