Two Tone Chukka at The Woodlands

Journal
If you haven’t made the transition from loafers to wintery footwear, you’re in deep denial.  For some of us, the promise of boots and wool-lined shoes can usher in a sense of cool weather inspiration but if they leave you yearning for the styles of drier days, The Woodlands’ Two Tone Chukka is what you’re looking for.  An antidote for the fatigue of galoshes and heavy soled boots, this customized creation made exclusively for The Woodlands in Portland is light, streamlined, and beautifully detailed.  It strikes the perfect balance between boot and oxford adding a sophistication that will make it an everyday choice even during the stormiest months.

The Two Tone Chukka is certainly hearty enough for the Pacific Northwest. Crafted from Horween’s Chromexcel leather, it retains the mastery of a leather formula developed over a century ago. The Woodlands’ crew writes, “Don’t baby it; just wear it and brush it with a good suede brush regularly to help keep the dirt off.”  As the flood of holiday obligations starts rolling in, this chukka will take you safely past casual without feeling like you’ve left your style behind.  Try on a pair at The Woodlands in downtown Portland.
