Chelsea Boots for Men: The Kerry and The Antrim from Dubarry of Ireland

The Kerry Boot - Photos by Salt Water New England
Many find Chelsea Boots to be their footwear of choice for an ever widening variety of situations.  Comfortable, good looking, and tough, they come in both more casual styles as well as dressier.

An example of the latter is Dubarry of Ireland's smart Kerry Boot. (Dubarry's Antrim, shown below, is a more casual boot.)  As with many of the best Dubarry products, The Kerry Boots are traditional in design with high quality materials that have been carefully treated for waterproofing and durability.
"The Insole is made up of three layers including a thermal foil lining, to protect the foot from the cold."

  1. Classic elegance.

  2. Hopefully one of your readers can shed some light on sizing for the Kerry boot for men. I wear a size 12.5 US. What is the correct equivalent to buy for a proper fit ? Thanks so much.

    1. We are a US size 13 and wear the size 48 in the Kerry, with no room to spare.

    2. A bit late with my thanks. Bought the 47 and it is a perfect fit. Lovely boots.
