I’m a big fan of Chelsea boots. They look sleek with no fussy laces or buckles, and they’re easy to pull on in a hurry.

Before I had Mini Shoe Consultant, I needed Chelseas so I didn’t miss my commuter train. Now it takes long enough to get the baby ready without delaying things further with my fussy boot fastenings.

I had a pair of white patent Chelsea boots, that I wore until they begged to go to shoe heaven. They had black elastic, pointed toes and a rubber sole. The contrast of black versus white gave an edgy rock-chick look, and the point completed that aesthetic. Once the patent leather lost its initial stiffness, those boots were incredibly comfortable.

Sale time is over, and new boot styles are jumping on to the shop shelves. The shoe gods have bestowed a fine selection of cool, comfortable pointed Chelsea boots this season. Click through the slide show for my selection.
