Chukka boots are style staples, but when you search for the best pair, you’re barraged by different brands. To make things even more confusing, some of the biggest names like Clarks have multiple versions.

We took a close look at one of the top chukkas, the Clarks Bushacre 2, and broke it down piece by piece so you can decide if it’s the right boot for you.

Bottom line: The Clarks Bushacre 2 has the same casual vibe as their classic Desert boot, but it has a harder rubber sole. The rich pull up leather is durable and fairly water resistant, too.
