What about a Chelsea with a more substantial sole. I’m looking for something similar to these at the moment, but in a better colour.


Not keen the Camion boot from OL? Trying to find the black at the moment as well.

These Gardeners are way chunkier than traditional chelseas and could do the trick

I got the black mono low version of those, really decent shoes for the money.
