Chelsea Milkshake Suede

Written by Guy Ferguson
Chelsea Milkshake Suede

The Chelsea boot, which is characterized by its elastic side panel, is a unisex style which dates back to the mid-1800s.  It would later become an iconic symbol of British culture in the 1950s and 60s, with strong associations to the mod scene.  Our version features a wholecut upper and a custom last inspired by a traditional Argentinian riding boot.  For the debut of this new pattern on Viberg.com we choose a heavyweight British suede in a milky, offwhite tone.  While most suede leathers are split-grain making them relatively thin and delicate, we've sourced a full-grain calf butt version which is as durable as any of our offerings, but maintains the signature soft feel and even nap of a luxurious suede.  Our Chelsea pattern has taken over a year of research and development and forced us to pick up several new machines and manufacturing techniques along the way.  It's been a long and challenging process, but we couldn't be more excited to finally offer you our completed vision.  Purchase the Chelsea Milkshake Suede here.
