The origin of the Chukka boot for men.
The Chukka boot for men is perhaps the “youngest” shoe model for men since its appearance dates back to not more than 100 years ago. There are different theories about its origin. In the case of the Chukka Boot for men, we must differentiate the origin of its name, the origin of the design of the boot itself.
The name “Chukka” with which this boot model has been baptized for men, has its origin in the Polo. In this sport, 6 parts of seven and a half minutes each are played, and each of these parts is called Chukker or Chukka. This term comes from the word ‘chukkar’ which means circle or turn.
There is another very interesting theory about the name of this boot for men, dating back to the use of the word “chukkar” in India, which means taking a walk or going for a walk.
The chukka boot in the war
As for the origin of the model of the Chukka boot, it emerged in World War II, specifically in Africa. It was here that the British military realized that the shoes they wore were not suitable for running loose in the desert terrain. They needed their shoes to have rubber soles for a better grip, which offers them greater protection so that the sand does not enter the interior and especially that they are light to resist the long marches through the desert. That is why the Chukka boot for men is also known as Desert boot.
It is clear to us that the Chukka mens boots were designed to provide comfort and to a certain extent style. Precisely because of these two qualities, its popularity was very great in the decade of the 40s and 50s.
