Combining the aesthetics of two classics is nothing new despite how difficult it is to truly create a "new classic" from preexisting ones. Sperry's new Authentic Original Workboot Chukka isn't really a "new classic" by any stretch of the imagination because it's just a boat shoe chukka which as far as I am concerned is a straight up classic in its own right. So what do we have here? Simply put, Sperry AO chukkas now have a version with orange workboot/hiking laces for a little F/W twist. That's it. But maybe this is exactly the shoe you're looking for or maybe you're too lazy to change out the laces of the usual AO chukka yourself (that 360 degree lacing system can be a bitch). All I know is that I like boat shoe chukkas and I like these.
