De La Vina Dos Chelsea Boots By Teva – A Quick Review

Fancy name…understated yet elegant boots! Teva’s  De La Vina Dos Chelea boots are the shortest boot style in the De La Vina line (which also includes a tall boot and a mid-sized boot).

I love the Chelsea because of its no-nonsense pull-on style (I can tug these babies on and be on my way in a flash) and its fine detail. You get a lux leather welt and collar lining, which makes the boot look high maintenance, while remaining low maintenance. The Chelsea looks fantastic with skinny jeans and leggings.

I won’t wear a boot that’s not comfortable and functional, and the Chelsea delivers, which doesn’t surprise me, coming from Teva. The pig skin lining is soft and supple, and the leather upper is fully waterproof.

There’s a canvas lining, which is awesome, and the footbed is clearly meant for use…this is not a boot you’re expected to wear for a few minutes for style points then take off.

I’ve worn my Chelsea boots on longer walks around new cities and towns, on long travel days through airports and security lines (they’re easy to slip on and off, remember?) and through autumn puddles and leaf piles.

It’s not a hiking boot, but is still functional enough for easy trails, should you find yourself on one. The boot is lightweight at only 13 ounces, which makes it a good travel option.

It comes in four colors: black, bungee cord (a smoky brown), pecan, and redwood, in women’s sizes 5-11. As noted above, there are two additional styles of the De La Vina boot, in tall, which comes to the knee, and the Dos, which is a mid-height boot that comes to about mid-calf.

I think the Chelsea is the most versatile, as I’ve been able to pair mine with both tights and leggings and a tunic, and with jeans and trousers. Plus, their light weight makes them the best bet for travel days.
