Your Guide to Tall Footwear for Men

When it comes to creating effortless, comfortable outfits as a tall man, American Tall has just what you need for any outing with a selection of leather and suede shoes in sizes 13 through 15. Whether you’re heading to the office or out for a cup of coffee with a friend, everyone needs the ideal pair of shoes for the occasion. Here’s a breakdown of our key styles.

What are Chelsea boots?

This style of boot dates back to the Victorian era and was popular for horse riding and walking. Known for a close fit with an elastic side panel, the Chelsea boot is considered a classic silhouette for both men and women alike.

Their name comes from their initial rise to popularity in Chelsea, London during the ‘50s and ‘60s. During this time, they were seen as a must-have for those in the ‘mod’ scene (think The Beatles). Fast forward to now, where they have become a staple footwear choice for both function and fashion.

Front and back tabs make the boot easy to slip on and off, while a moderate heel cushions your step. Crafted with genuine leather, the American Tall Chelsea Boot will become an instant go-to in your collection as it pairs effortlessly with your favorite pair of jeans or trousers.

What are Oxfords?

Like their cousin, the loafer, Oxfords are known for their slightly upscale look, but they have a lace-up closure instead of being a slip-on style.

They were formerly considered a dress shoe but have since evolved into being an easy everyday choice that pairs well with formal, uniform or casual wear. They come in a variety of styles, from simple basics to elevated brogues, and are suitable for any manner of dressing, from office wear to casual weekend denim.

The American Tall Rugged Oxford has a classic silhouette and thoughtful design with a durable lug outsole to provide grip and support to every stride you take.

For added refinement, the American Tall Brogue Oxford features baroque details and a subtle wingtip. The perforations along the wingtip design add a timeless look to this pair of shoes while durable premium cow leather stays supple for years to come.

What are desert boots?

Also known as chukka boots, desert boots are a type of ankle-high boot with laces. The primary difference between a true desert boot and a chukka boot is that the former has rubber soles, whereas the latter can have any type of sole. The rubber construction allows for a more cushy step and a softer structure for a boot that will relax and appear more casual over time.

Originally worn in the African desert by the British military, desert boots were a popular option due to their simple design and became popular as casual wear in the 1960s and mid ‘70s when they were the choice footwear for leading men like Marlon Brando.

At American Tall, our Desert Boot is made of genuine suede and a leather lining for added flexibility that pairs well with your go-to chinos or jeans.
