Details about 212
Designed in 1830 by Queen Victoria’s royal shoemaker, the Chelsea boot is a flat ankle boot that achieved global popularity when it was worn by the Beatles.

Handcrafted and Goodyear-welted, No. 212 is a dark brown women’s Chelsea boot. This full-leather shoe is extremely breathable, flexible, and long-lasting.
Youthful charm—women’s Chelsea boot in dark brown velours
No. 212’s upper is made of soft velours that has been fully-dyed dark brown. In keeping with tradition, this Chelsea boot features elastic side inserts and a pull tab stitched on at the heel, and does without decorative elements. The only feature that breaks up this ankle boot’s upper is a delicate double seam running beneath the elastic inserts. This seam extends to the bottom of the shoe, and emphasizes the clean lines of the overall design. Because this shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, Goodyear-welted construction, and a Rendenbach leather outsole, it is breathable, easy to repair (if and when necessary), and runs true to size.
This women’s Chelsea boot in dark brown is made of soft and supple velours, and has a casual, nonchalant look. While this shoe is poorly-suited for formal business affairs, its youthful charm makes it a strong choice for relatively informal workplaces. A tip: this model’s simple design looks best with slim-fitting trousers.
Boots with a short shaft that only extends three to five centimetres above the ankle. These boots are sturdier than classic flat shoes and provide greater protection for your feet during inclement weather.
Subtly narrows at the front of the shoe. Features an elegantly rounded toe and a slightly elevated instep arch. The marked rise of the toe from the ground and the average-width middle portion of the shoe ensure wearing comfort. Ideal for average and high insteps.
Processed velours is an extremely fine, fully-dyed type of rough leather that is taken from the flesh side of the hide. Velours is extremely soft and resistant to soiling. It is easy to care for; regular brushing with a suede brush suffices to keep your velours shoes in good shape.
For the past 140 years, Rendenbach has used oak bark tanning to produce leather soles—the process can take up to nine months. These soles are renowned for their extreme durability and natural water repellency. Women’s shoes with Rendenbach soles are a real novelty.
