THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING...
As the days are getting colder I'm on the hunt for some ankle boots that look like walking boots but look good, are comfy and warm. I want them to go with jeans, dresses and skirts so that I can wear them on the school run, in meetings and for lunch, coffee. You're probably thinking I have lots of boots and yes I do but they all seem to be heeled boots for work or super casual Uggs that you throw on after a workout. In fact today is the day that after a few errands I am having a clear out of the under stairs cupboard, it's my shoe, boot and handbag area and its been a dumping ground to just throw everything in. Hooray, eventually a quick tidy and I'll eventually be able to find that other lace boot that I've been wanting to wear for work!
So a research task this Saturday morning for the perfect black ankle walking boot. It's actual more of a difficult task than you think as not many are around but someone has to do it!
First port of call Russell and Bromley. Why? Last year I coveted a pair of Huggy's, they didn't go in the sale and I thought I would check to see if they are back. Here they are...
Soft black calf leather, hiking red lacing, faux-wool lining and a not too chunky sturdy sole.
UGG® Black Leather Viki Waterproof Lace Up Boot £210
If you're off skiing these are gorgeous but too chunky for what I'm looking for.
GANNI Edna suede-trimmed leather ankle boots £295
Trimmed with suede at the ankle and set on a serrated rubber sole that won't slip on wet city streets. Switch between the black and red laces depending on your outfit.
Seven Boot Lane Himalaya £175 Black Leather
More of a hiking boot with a chunky look and feel, crafted from leather and suede and finished with a faux fur lining.
Seven Boot Lane Karla £165 Black Leather
This lace-up winter boot has a touch of luxe thanks to the bright silver metal ware and soft faux fur lining. Made from soft Spanish leather and I love that they are on a sneaker sole making them not too chunky. Also in Grey Camo Suede
There are still a couple out there but being designer they are all around £500 so will not feature on here. Research done and although I loved the Huggy's I think my favourite are the Seven Boot Lane Karla, look more like a sneaker and I hope will be perfect. 20% off this Black Friday weekend.
