Who deserves credit for the popularity of chukkas and their sneaker offspring in recent years? Is it Clarks Originals, the pioneer of the desert boot and wallabee styles? What about Nike, who’ve crafted countless variations including hybrids fused with familiar design language? Or is it Vans, the brand who’s had a chukka in their catalog longer than just about every sneaker manufacturer? The answer is obviously a confluence of all these forces, but when you see the Vans Chukka Boot in black/white and all-black, it’s easy to see how Off the Wall contributed to the popularity. Have a closer look so you can see which colored sole/laces you prefer, then grab a pair from retailers like The General.
