The Del Toro chukka is a timeless classic. The chukka style originally caught the public eye after desert boots (chukka boots with a crepe sole) were distributed among allied forces in the African campaigns of World War II. The durability and versatility of the chukka style have helped it become a footwear staple for over 60 years.
The DT iteration takes cues from the classic desert boot, yet is fitted with a crisp margom sole for a sleek, modern edge. Constructed from luxe materials and topped off with a pair of premium leather laces, our chukkas make for a seriously sharp pair of kicks.
Despite their bold look, the chukka sneaker can be styled with ease. An easy go-to combo is your chukkas paired with some fresh slim-fitting jeans and a clean tee. This look can transition effortlessly from afternoon to evening. Remember, adding a single or double-cuff to the hem of your pants will help bring the best out of your Del Toros.
For more seasoned style vets, try pairing your chukkas with a pair of tapered jogger pants. The bottoms of the cuffs should just kiss the tops of your sneakers, combining for a modern, streamlined look.
Whoever told you that you can only wear low-tops with shorts was off by a mile. The chukka sneaker’s sharp mid-cut design looks awesome with a pair of tailored shorts – just don’t let em see socks.
The best thing about Del Toro Chukka Sneakers is their undeniable versatility. Steph Curry paired them with a suit and rocked them court-side. LeBron James stunted in his chukkas wearing a pair of tailored sweatpants, a modern button-up shirt and a snapback. The Del Toro Chukka Sneaker goes with whatever you decide it does.
