The Chelsea is handmade to offer a generous fit with an unrivalled comfort. The balanced silhouette gives a sleek impression while expressing a sense of confidence with the slightly wider toe box. Goodyear welted on a sturdy rubber sole and soft calf suede makes this a head-turning piece of craftsmanship that will become an indispensable part of your everyday wardrobe.
Fits true to size: Take your normal size that you wear in other dress shoes.
Eliminate any excess dirt with a damp soft cloth. Brush the leather outer with a high-quality shoe cream in a suitable colour, this will help to protect the leather and restore the natural oils lost during outdoor wear. Buff any excess cream with a dry cloth to achieve a natural shine. If your leather feels especially dry use a shoe conditioner before the cream to increase longevity.
Our friend Anders won the Swedish national championship in shoe care and recommends 3 golden rules:
1. Alternate between wears: Let your Morjas shoes rest after wear and rotate between your styles. The shoes need time to recover from the humidity produced by your feet and the outdoor elements.
2. Use shoe trees: Shoe trees will help maintain the shape and structure in between wears. Using our specially crafted cedar shoe trees will encourage the evaporation of moisture and eliminate any undesirable odors.
3. Use a shoehorn: Using a shoehorn will protect the counter ensuring your shoes maintain their proper fit and comfort.
In general, we recommend selecting the size you normally use in other dress shoes. However, if you don’t have any clear references to other dress shoes we recommend measuring your feet and selecting the size based on this.
How is the fit?
Our shoes are between medium and wide in terms of fit. They are designed to give a timeless impression with enough room for your feet to feel comfortable. All shoes are handmade in UK sizes.
How to measure your feet
Wearing socks, stand on a piece of paper with your feet against the wall. Make a mark at the front of your big toe. Now measure between the base of the paper to the marked line and select a size from our size chart.
Runs true to size. We measure from the third hole to the end of the buckle and convert to the waist size in trousers.
