Our original (often imitated, never surpassed) Penelope Chilvers Tassel Boots in sustainably sourced Spanish leather are the epitome of luxury. Exclusively cut for us close to the ankle for a more feminine fit with a scallop detail at the zip panel and a leather tassel on the zip pull. These handmade boots are partially lined in deerskin with a Goodyear Welt rubber tread sole. Perfectly styled and wonderfully practical – these boots are made to last. Our Tassel Boots (as worn by HRH Catherine, Princess of Wales) encase the leg beautifully giving a sleek, leg lengthening and elegant silhouette.
Available in two calf widths - Standard and Generous. Please consult our SIZE GUIDE for specific size calf width measurements. The Generous is a more relaxed fit which is wider than the slim tassel boot fit.
Please note that these boots are individually cut and constructed by hand and therefore slight variances in the final measurements can occur. If you need any further clarification, please contact our Customer Services team who will be happy to help.
Please scroll through the imagery to find technical details and a video from Penelope to guide you on finding the perfect fitting boots.

True Fit - Take Your Actual Size
The calf measurements are based on measurements taken from the inside of the boot.
How To Measure Your Calf
Step 1: Stand up and place your feet flat on the floor.
Step 2: Wrap a tape measure around the widest part of your calf.
Step 3: Measure each calf to the nearest 1cm. Do not worry if each calf is a different size - use the larger measurements as your true calf size.
For a comfortable fit, your calf measurement should not exceed the CALF CM size in the table below.
