Chelsea boots can usually be found in leather and suede varieties. Much like the chukka boot, suede Chelsea boots come in a myriad of colors that you can pair with your lighter spring outfits. These boots look best with slim fitting pants or denim and may not be ideal for super hot days where shorts are a better choice.
Leather boots are a big fall favorite but they can also be pulled off during cooler spring and summer months. The key to wearing leather boots during warm weather is to make sure that they are unlined. Many leather boots are lined with heat retaining material for wear during colder seasons. An unlined boot allows the leather to breathe and provide more circulation to the foot.
These boots go great with denim and a t-shirt for an easy casual look during the spring or early summer. We do not recommend wearing these boots on scorching hot days, but for spring weather these boots look and feel great.
If you are looking for a work-wear inspired boot we highly recommend the Danner Bull Run Moc Toe. This unlined leather work boot is made for wear during warmer weather months and has pretty great air circulation when considering how rugged it is. Brands like Wolverine and Chippewa also make unlined leather boots that can simply be beefed up with thick wool socks for wear in the winter. We recommend these boots for year-round wear.
