Chukka boots, commonly referred to as the Desert boot, are an everyday essential when it comes to men’s footwear. Rumoured to have taken their name from the chukker period in the sport of polo, leather Chukka boots became prominent in Britain during the ‘50’s and ‘60’s. Likewise, Desert boots - a specific style of Chukkas featuring suede uppers and crepe rubber soles - became popular post-World War II. These boots took their inspiration from the footwear produced in Cairo for British Army officers, and are hence referenced by name to the deserts of Egypt. Both the original Chukka style and the Desert style can be found in our range of Chukka & Desert Boots by Frank Wright.
