WINTER STYLE:
THE BEST WOMEN’S BOOTS

Check out our guide to discover your favourite footwear of the season, from go-to black ankle boots to on-trend biker styles

Biker boots

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 shearling linings, statement hardware and cleated soles add extra style points. 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.

Hiker boots

Did you snap up a pair of hiker boots last winter? If so, you’ll be pleased to hear the trend is still going strong; if not, now’s the time to get involved. As well as being the coolest way to wear ankle boots right now, practical hiker styles are a supremely comfortable choice, bound to hold their place in your wardrobe for years to come. Try a pair of cosy borg-lined boots or branch out to chunky hiker boots with red laces.

Chelsea boots

There’s nothing more classic than the tried-and-tested Chelsea boot. However, this season’s spin is toughened up à la Bottega Veneta, Prada and Ganni. A pair of chunky Chelsea boots with a texturised rubber sole and elasticated sides will add instant edge to floaty midi dresses in the autumn; alternatively, 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 stomping around the city or countryside.

Ankle 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.

Knee-high boots

Long boots are enjoying a resurgence among the fashion set this year, although for many of us they are an annual staple. Perfect for pairing with midi skirts and dresses or tucking your skinny jeans into, knee-high styles offer an air of polish to winter looks. Fancy a change from regular black or brown boots? Try a sleek tan leather pair with a block heel to introduce contrast to dark-coloured outfits. And rubberised flat-soled boots are great for pulling up over your cosiest socks on long wintry walks.
