Check out our favourite footwear styles of the new season, from ankle boots to cowboy boots – all with major style and comfort credentials
Statement-making patterned boots
Patterned boots are a tried-and-tested way to inject personality into your look. Animal print boots have been on the front foot for the past couple of seasons – a trend that continues this year. Add attitude to an all-denim outfit with snakeskin boots, or try leopard-print boots with an oversized jumper and straight-leg jeans. If you’re all about making a statement this winter, opt for retro-inspired platform boots, which are having a serious fashion moment and are great for days spent stomping around the city.
Keep it sleek with ankle boots
The most adaptable addition to your footwear wardrobe, a pair of simple ankle boots will go with almost anything. They add practicality and polish to autumn dresses, jeans and trousers, as well as keeping your feet comfortable, thanks to our clever Insolia technology. Choose between plain black and colourful options, plus luxe suede and leather finishes. Unsure where to begin? These wedge-heeled ankle boots from our autumn collection are flying off the shelves – run, don’t walk, to get your hands on a pair. Make like campaign model Sienna Miller by styling yours with a lime cable-knit jumper and slinky satin skirt.
Add edge with chunky boots
Drizzly weather calls for durable, hard-wearing footwear. When winter kicks in, a pair of hiker or biker boots will be your best friend, giving your outfits edge while also keeping your toes warm (it’s not just about looking tough, after all). Details such as multiple buckles, statement hardware and cleated soles add extra style points. Like many of our shoe styles, these stone-coloured lace-up biker boots have Insolia technology, designed to keep your feet super comfy, even as you pound the puddle-strewn pavements.
Head-turning Western boots
Say howdy to one of this winter’s biggest footwear trends: the cowboy boot. Forget any associations with fancy dress or festivals, Western-inspired styles are surprisingly versatile and add a playful twist to the most failsafe outfits. Look for pointed toes, Cuban heels, stitch detailing and embroidery to nod to the trend. Toughen up a floaty midi dress with a pair of cowboy boots, or add some edge to a mini dress. Cowboy boots also work well with jeans – choose wider-leg styles for a contemporary look.
