Who knew that rubber boots could be this stylish?
The waterproof rubber Chelsea boots by Tretorn, Sweden.
The legendary shape, with the short shaft and the characteristic elasticated insert, plus the classic men’s shoe colours make these waterproof boots more elegant and stylish than the conventional chunky hunter’s and gardener’s designs in olive green.
Made of high quality natural rubber and therefore very flexible.
These boots bear no relation to cheap rubber boots, which are usually moulded from stiff plastic. Yet they’re still surprisingly affordable. The Swedish manufacturer, Tretorn, has specialized in rubber boots and the processing of rubber since 1891. The two pull-on loops on the shaft make it easier to put the boots on. Removable footbed. Non-slip profiled outsole.
Shaft height 13.5cm (5.3"). Upper and outsole: Natural rubber. Lining and insole: Textile.
