The CHUKKA model is based on the Chambord.
It was clear to us that converting the Chambord into a Chukka version – i.e. with a semi-high ankle – would produce an unusual, complementary design that would fit effortlessly with Arpenteur's casual look.
The hardest part of the project entailed redesigning the quarters of the model. The Chambord has a wide front with a fairly high apron. With these specific features in mind, we attempted to resize the quarters and define their angles so they fitted perfectly with the apron of the shoe, extending it evenly.
Our aim was to make the design appear natural, giving the impression that this model has always existed. We hope we have succeeded.
