The jodhpur boot and its close cousin, the Chelsea boot was originally designed as riding boots back in the late 1800's following the introduction of the ankle length riding pant, the jodhpur. The shorter ankle boot caught on quickly. They were less expensive, easier on and off and cheaper to replace when feet grew. They were adopted by riders, grooms, and patrons of the thoroughbred racing industry and came to be associated with this elite lifestyle. By mid 1960's they were seen as a staple in any British man's wardrobe and have since been endorsed universally. The Newmarket, with its two piece leather construction and contrasting ankle elastic is made on the sleek 82 last, an elegant look for the modern man that fits both casual and dress applications. The sizing scale includes both British and American sizes, and a U.S. size 10 is expressed as 9 1/2 / 10.
