Anyone who likes to wear Chelsea Boots should have this pair in their wardrobe. The Bordo Shadow patina on this pair is of a darker tone compared to my Double Monks, at first glance I felt it looked like a simple dark brown when uncovering the boots inside during the winter, but the sophisticated burgundy shows itself nicely outside during both cloudy weather and sunshine, hard to catch on camera and photos do not do it justice at all, one must see the patina with their own eyes in outside weather. I started favouring these over the pair I have in Guimaraes. I would recommend owning both, but if you have to choose either one, I recommend these in Bordo Shadow.
Great quality for your money as usual from Carlos Santos. This is a purchase I can highly recommend.
Very good boot, I will have given a 5 but for some minor issue. When I opened the box some mess fell off one of the shoes I quickly cleaned it only to realise it was part of the patina polish. So now I keep thinking the shoe will have looked different if I had polished the boot with what I thought was mess🤔

These Boots are Perfect,the fit UK 12 color a very impressed with the weight of the boots light on my feet I am totally blown away, this is my second pair of Carlos santos, I will be ordering more if this boot was in black I would order to day thanks Kostas!
I bought these chelsea boots in size UK 8 based on the sizing recommendation, and it worked out very well. I have a higher instep so often need to get size UK 8.5 to accommodate but in this last/fit it is perfect (and I don't have the surplus length I sometimes get in the larger size). The boots themselves are well made, but it is the colour that really stands out - deep and dark in the shade, but bursting into a rich vibrant burgundy in the sun - I am really pleased. Shipping was free and very fast (to New Zealand), just 8 days. I will be back for more!
These arrived seemingly as soon as I ordered them. And to think the shipping was free... I will be a return customer when I can save up some money for the double monks.
Kostas, thank you so much. Your advice was spot on; as you predicted, these were a little big, but I was able to fit in them with some thick socks and insoles. The shoes are beautiful and look even better in person. They light up really nicely in the sun and are such an elegant pair of boots. The quality is a step above anything I’ve owned. Thanks for the great service, Kostas!
