DACK'S CHUKKA BOOT - A MUST

DACK'S CHUKKA BOOT - A MUST

July 30, 2016

Our new JULIEN suede chukka boot is a must for every man's wardrobe. 

The chukka boot is back but in truth, it never went away. It is an enduring classic that first became popular in the late 1940s through the 1960s.

Standard issue for the British army, chukka boots (also known as “desert boots”) were worn in the desert campaign of World War II. The name “chukka” comes from the game of polo, where a “chukker” is a period of play.

Designed to provide both comfort and style, chukka boots are quickly becoming a staple of every man’s wardrobe. They can be worn with both business and casual attire. Trend forecasters say the chukka boot can be worn year-round.

Shoe Width

Our standard shoe width is an F fitting. However, in order to accommodate variations in foot size, alternative width fittings are available in certain styles.

Narrow Fit = D width (USA E Fit)

Standard or Average Fit = F width (USA EE Fit)

Wide Fit = G width (USA EEE Fit)

Extra Wide Fit = H width (USA EEEE Fit)

As a shoe increases in size, the length and width both increase. A size 10F shoe is therefore one size bigger and one size wider than a size 9F shoe. A size 9G shoe is a size wider than a size 9F - in other words the width of the shoe would roughly correspond to a size 10F.

In the table below, the 11D, the 10F, the 9G and 8H would all be roughly the same width.
