The Must-Have Boots For Winter

FEATURE: LONG READ
Words by ABIGAIL GURNEY-READ

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 AW20 with the best pairs to buy now.

The Knee-High Boots

The unofficial uniform of well-heeled women everywhere, lofty leathers step up the game of any ensemble – from sleek midi dresses to light autumnal separates. Rich, natural hues, from merlot to umber, echo the palette of the season perfectly.

The Ankle Boots

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 Loewe’s stompy Chelsea boot iterations are utterly en vogue.

The Over-the-Knee Boots

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; Bottega Veneta and Stuart Weitzman deliver a lesson in getting it right.

The Riding Boots

What cowboy boots were last autumn/winter, sleek riding boots are for 2020 – the latter, being a sleek evolution of the two styles’ shared equestrian roots. Gucci’s sophisticated knee-high pair, emblazoned with the brand’s tiger signature, are the cream of the (riding) crop.

The Lace-Up Boots

Biker boots, combat boots... Prepare to stomp forth and conquer with this season’s XXL pairings. 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.

The Printed Boots

All things bold and beautiful is our battle cry du jour – 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.
