All About Boots

The change of seasons 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 your feet firmly into Autumn/Winter 2019 with the best pairs to buy now.

  • Ankles Aweigh

    A good pair of ankle boots is our feet’s equivalent to a loyal best friend, albeit one that flatters your calves on a daily basis. Classic black leather is a favourite, of course, however Jimmy Choo’s python-embossed pair is totally en vogue.

    How To Wear Harrods: No need to don a full pantsuit to 'wear the trousers', as it were. A tailored shorts-and-blazer combo feels equally sharp, while claiming the added benefit of showcasing your footwear.

Knees Up

The unofficial uniform of well-heeled women everywhere, lofty leathers step up the game of any ensemble – from a sleek-knit midi dress to light autumnal separates.

How To Wear Harrods: Speaking of heels: this season, the best styles are an artform in themselves. Look out for knee-high boots with sculpted logos, sinuous structures and abstract platforms.

  • Sloane Ranger

    Chelsea boots’ origins can be traced back to Queen Victoria's reign rumour has it she was a fan. Masterminded by royal cordwainer J. Sparkes-Hall, the pioneering style was lauded for its comfort and ergonomic design. No doubt Her Maj’ would've been into Gucci’s crystal-cabochon flourishes.

    How To Wear Harrods: Following where your boots lead, a heritage-check coat will strike the optimum balance of tradition and trend.

Go West

"These boots are made for walkin'" prophesied Nancy Sinatra. Sure enough, western boots were everywhere on the AW19 runways – from Ganni to Isabel Marant. We particularly love Off-White’s irreverent homage to Sinatra herself. Yee-haw!

How To Wear Harrods: Cowboy boots may have originated on the Great Plains, but you needn’t saddle up to make them work. Our advice? Swap cattle herding for the finer things in life; silk slips and soft cashmeres seem a fair exchange.

  • Graphic Content

    All things bold and beautiful was the battlecry of AW19 – and the same can apply to footwear. Fierce python, glamorous leopard, logomania; we’re starting our print portfolio from the ground up. Too much is never enough.

    How To Wear Harrods: Splash the clash! Embrace maximalism from toe to top, and echo your twosome’s tones elsewhere to tie your look together.

Biker Chic(k)

Biker* boots, combat boots; whatever you’re calling AW19’s fiercest footwear, prepare to stomp forth and conquer. Identified by a chunky caterpillar sole, twining laces and a solid leather construction, this hardy silhouette will do battle in the urban jungle – however harsh the conditions. *Harley-Davidson sold separately.

How To Wear Harrods:  Opposites attract. Counterpoint your biker boots’ tough edge with soft, floaty midi dresses and beautifully cut tailoring.

  • Over & Above

    If, like us, you’re not yet ready to abandon bare legs altogether, over-the-knee boots will be your autumn shoe salvation. The thigh’s no limit where these vertiginous pairs are concerned; Saint Laurent and Stuart Weitzman deliver a lesson in getting it right.

    How To Wear Harrods: Consider this your opportunity to make that mini dress go further. An oversized shirt and blazer combo will really boss the look.
