Again, the title of the article for the product is wrong. Again, these aren't Chukkas.
The first instance of the Footscape Woven upper was as a low-cut runner with a 360 sole in a one-time-only release (in 2004, I think). Then came a couple more variations of that, as well as the Bodega low, before they added the ankle side panel to turn them into a chukka.
At any rate, these are among the most comfortable shoes you're ever likely to lace up. My Bodega black cats always draw questions and compliments, too. Definitely head-turning kicks that you don't see every day.
