Theatrical and ballet shoe maker Anello & Davide created a variant of the Chelsea boot in 1961 with cuban heels and pointed toes for The Beatles, after John Lennon and Paul McCartney saw some Chelsea boots in its shop window and commissioned four pairs with higher, Cuban heels – this style became known as Beatle Boots.
