Year after year, Chelsea boots remain one of the most sought-after styles for men. Chelseas can be used in formal attire and casual wear alike, providing a sleek, polished look. This slip-on boot has been a classic for years. The technique used to achieve this artwork is known as ‘Anticatura’, which is the Italian word for antique finishing. It is a specialty of Italian and French maestro shoemakers. Entrusted to the hands of the antique finisher, the upper part of the shoe becomes a work of art. The Anticatura method is a hand dyeing procedure of leather.
