The chukka boot has been a godsend for people who are looking to wear the same shoe to work as they do to social functions. They are the perfect shoe to dress up or down, depending on the occasion. Rock them with a pain of chinos to work or throw them on with jeans before heading to a first date.
The demand for chukkas is, and always will be high. I’m no economics major, but this pushes the price up for most of them. And for those of us dudes who are ballin’ on a budget, they become an unrealistic purchase. But check out these 5 affordable chukka boots on sale now (all below $75). I’ve made sure to sift through reviews for each boot to make sure customers were satisfied. These kicks have dropped well below the original price, so take advantage while you can.
New Republic Luther Chukka
Possibly the best bargain boot on the market. For the price of a moderate bar tab, you can cop yourself some high style shoes at a low cost. The New Republic Luther Chukkas won’t last you a lifetime, but when you consider that other Chukka boots typically cost three times the price, they have enough desirable features to pull the purchase trigger. They sport a classic, desert boot textured sole and the reinforcing spine on the back of the shoe gives it more structure and durability and helps remedy the annoying floppy top problem of similar boots in the space.
Clarks Katchur Top
These bad boys were originally priced at $135, and have now dropped to nearly a third of that price. The Katchur Top features a rugged profile and its treaded rubber outsole provides great durability. Multiple reviews on Clarks website claim these boots are comfortable, great for everyday wear, and work well with jeans and chinos.
Rockport Total Motion Fusion Chukka
Rockport is known for their comfortable footwear products, and the Total Motion Fusion Chukka is no different. My dad has foot issues and sweats by Rockports. Perfect for work or dress and the orthotic footbed wicks away moisture so your feet stay cool even in warm climates. These kicks were originally $150, but dropped to $99.99, and with PROMO CODE: EXTRA30, they drop to $70.
SPERRY’s Men’s Dockyard Chelsea
Originally priced at $150, these versatile boots have dropped to half that. The boots are the perfect mix of heavy-duty and lightweight, featuring premiumfull grain tumbled leather uppers with stitch-out detailing and no laces. The sole is flexible and provides good traction, it’s easy to get in and out of. The only negative, per some reviews, is that the boots are too narrow for dudes with particularly wide feet.
