Check out our favourite footwear of the new season, from ankle boots to cowboy boots
The most adaptable addition to your footwear wardrobe, a pair of simple, block-heeled ankle boots will go with almost anything. They add practicality and polish to skirts, jeans and trousers, as well as keeping your feet comfortable thanks to our clever Insolia technology. Choose between plain black and colourful options, plus suede and leather finishes.
Chelsea boots are a tried-and-tested wardrobe hero. Toughened-up styles have been on the front foot for the past couple of seasons – a trend that continues this year. Add attitude to dresses with texturised rubber soles, or team them with an oversized jumper and straight-leg jeans. If you’re all about making a statement this winter, opt for platform boots, which are having a serious fashion moment and are great for days spent striding around the city or the countryside.
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, snake print, 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.
Grotty weather calls for durable, hard-wearing footwear. When winter kicks in, a pair of 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 interest. Like all our boots, these buckled leather bikers have Insolia technology, designed to keep your feet super comfy, even as you pound the puddle-strewn pavements.
