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, lofty leathers step up the game of any ensemble – from sleek midi dresses to light separates. Look to neutral hues like deep brown and buttery cream to echo the palette of the season.

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; Jimmy Choo and Amina Muaddi deliver a lesson in getting it right.

The Ankle Boots

A good pair of ankle boots is our feet’s equivalent to a loyal best friend. Classic black leather is always a favourite – thank you, Chloé – while stompy Chelsea boot iterations by the likes of Loewe and Proenza Schouler are utterly en vogue.

The Chunky Boots

After the arrival of Bottega Veneta’s XXL Lug and Tire boots, it was only a matter of time before chunky-soled styles became the boots to be seen in. With hefty rubber soles worthy of a Wellington boot, they’re the all-weather pairs that will see you through winter. Prepare to stomp forth and conquer.

The Day-to-Night Boots

The svelte antithesis to AW21’s chunkier offerings, a sleek day-to-night boot is brilliantly versatile. Clean and elegant, these pairs transition as smoothly from AM to PM as they do from season to season. We especially love them with a heel à la By Far, Amina Muaddi and Loewe.

The Riding Boots

Where cowboy boots once reigned supreme, sleek riding boots are now in the saddle – an evolution of the two styles’ shared equestrian roots. Stacked atop a chunky sole, Stuart Weitzman’s mid-calf pair are the cream of the (riding) crop.

The Lace-up Boots

Biker, combat, hiking... Whatever boot camp you find yourself in, lace-up pairs stand firm as fashion’s most functional footwear. Identified by a sturdy sole and twining laces, this silhouette will do battle in the urban jungle – however harsh the conditions.
