Best Chelsea Boots For Men Between $100-$300
1. Meermin Chelsea Boots
Chelsea boots by Meermin are fashionable footwear with a European flair. They are renowned for their modern style and alluring pricing, which in the United States is about $250. The sturdy materials and high-quality leather used to make these boots make them last a long time. Chelsea boots from Meermin are distinguished by their sturdy soles. Overall, these boots are a great choice for anyone who wants a stylish, high-quality pair of boots for a fair price.
Meermin Rust Chelsea Boots
Best Overall Comfort
Suede leather in English style, reinforced with a durable Commando sole and storm welts. Constructed using Goodyear welting on the traditional HIRO last, lined with full calfskin and featuring vegetable-tanned leather insoles.
2. Blundstone Chelsea Boots
They’re in the $100-$300 price range, but you can often find them cheaper on STP or eBay. I really like the wingtip chisel toes on them; they’re a nice precursor to the super chunky original silhouette. They also have a thermal variety for winter, with waterproof goring and leather, thinsulate insulation, and a sheepskin footbed, so you can wear them barefoot!
Overall, I think Blundstones are fantastic; many people prefer the chunky silhouette of the original, but the regular variety is fine as well, even in cold weather if worn with thick socks. The only downside is that they don’t breathe that well, so in warm weather your feet might get a little sweaty in them.
3. Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boot
Have you looked at the Chelsea boots by Astorflex Bitflex? They’re extremely solid; they have a bit more rugged style, but they’re made of genuine, premium Italian suede leather, so if you take care of them, you can be sure they’ll endure. They look fantastic in most colors, though I would recommend starting on the chestnut brown side. Additionally, you won’t have to break the bank to purchase these because they are a decent price.
4. Doc Marten Chelsea Boots
I really like their 2976 Crazy Horse Leather Chelsea Boots in brown. They are very warm and extremely comfortable (as are most Doc Martens). These boots run pretty large, so keep that in mind when you order. They also don’t do half sizes, so that’s also a bummer for me.
5. Jack Erwin – Ellis
These have a more professional finish. They have more of a wing-tip toe compared to some of the rounder finishes many of the other brands are sporting with their rugged Chelsea boots. These could be used as more of a dress-casual boot. Super sleek and high-quality build.
6. Will’s Vegan Shoes
Chelsea Boots are available in some really cool vegan leather options here. Honestly, I strongly considered going this route when I was due for a new pair. The Goodyear looks really nice. We get snow where I’m from, so the extremely grippy sole almost got me.
They tend to run between $100 and $200 USD as well, so they’re pretty affordable for a good vegan leather option.
7. Thursday Boots
I’ve become more and more of a fan of Thursday Boots over the last three years or so. I did grab a pair of their white sneakers, and I’ve been really impressed with the quality. I haven’t owned their Chelsea Boots, but they look like they’re great quality.
Their pricing is never discounted, and they don’t offer coupon codes, which is fine because they are less expensive than other Chelsea Boots that are close to the same quality and style in the $150-$200 range. Free shipping is available in the US as well.
8. TAFT’s Jude Boot
TAFT is a pretty interesting and cool sneaker and boot company. Their Jude Chelsea Boot in Tonal is a sick addition to your wardrobe if you already have a set of dark brown or black Chelsea boots. I never recommend this lighter color for your first set, but these are a great piece to add a little flair. I also find the different style of tread and the unique way they add it to the sole very interesting and quirky. But it works really well.
Best Men’s Chelsea Boots Below $100
1. New Republic Chelsea
In general, they are always on sale for less than $100, even though the retail price is technically above $100. They are great entry-level Chelsea boots. For the price, they are absolutely amazing. Get suede, though, because budget suede will last longer and look better than budget leather any day of the week.
I have recently removed the ASOS Chelsea boots because, in my opinion, they aren’t good. But I wanted to add this disclaimer in case people were checking this post out before and wondering why they were removed. I tested them out and sent them back to remove them from this list.
If you have any other recommendations for me to try, let me know and I’ll check em’ out. Cheers. Or if you’ve tried a pair and want to contribute, send me some info and I’ll consider adding your comments to the post as well.
