The Must-Have Boots for Winter
The dip in temperature isn’t all doom and gloom. When the mercury plummets, so too does one’s pedicure bill, and cold mornings herald our favourite time of year: boots season. Step firmly into it with the best pairs to buy now.
The Knee-High Boots
The unofficial uniform of well-heeled women everywhere, knee-high boots step up the game of any ensemble, from sleek midi dresses to light separates. But our question is: are you team timeless, or team trendy? Saint Laurent and Christian Louboutin keep things classic in capsule-wardrobe tones, while the likes of Gucci and Dolce&Gabbana aim to keep eyes on the ground with look-at-me styles to build your outfit around.

The Chunky Boots
A good pair of ankle boots is our feet’s equivalent to a loyal best friend. For Autumn/Winter 2022, chunky-soled flatform styles continue to reign supreme, whether in stompy combat-boot form à la Givenchy or moulded Chelsea-boot iterations from Loewe. Lace-up or slip-on; whichever you prefer, these hefty soles will weather a storm or two.
The Platform Boots
This year has been no stranger to platform shoes, largely thanks to brands like Versace and Valentino, whose viral Mary-Jane styles have been filling our Instagram feeds (and our wish lists). As we head into winter, the trend shows no sign of slowing down, with both brands applying their super-stacked soles to autumnal ankle boots, flanked in good company by the likes of Christian Louboutin and Amina Muaddi.

From ultra-stacked platforms to sculptural heels and neon party pairs, these are the heels making headlines right now.
The Western Boots
Spotted this year on certified trendsetters Kendall Jenner, FKA Twigs, Emily Ratajkowski and more, cowboy boots have made their way out of Nashville to become the ultimate cool-girl shoe. When it comes to silhouettes, a mid-calf length is usually the sweet-spot, but it’s up to you how literally you want to wear the Wild-West look. True to its irreverent ethos, Ganni plays up to classic cowboy tropes with embroidered detailing and a slanted block heel, while brands like Isabel Marant and Paris Texas pay subtler tributes with slouchy boho shapes and steel-tipped toes.
