Only, the design of the first version of the Chukka cleats was undetermined as the cleats have variations of the upper design already. Even the true origins of the name “Chukka” cleats still also undetermined.

It was also believed by many that polo players used the Chukka cleats during the game, but none knows if this is legit. But one thing is for sure though; the cleats were used by off-duty polo players.
