Boots season is finally here, huzzah! Bring on the lace-ups and the combats, the Chelseas and the knee-highs, because nothing quite stands up to the cosy appeal of foot-cocooning leather. Unlike a boxfresh sneaker or a flimsy ballet pump, a good boot will withstand whatever the great British winter throws at us and look good along the way. It will work with both dresses and denim, skirts and suits, so you know you’ll get excellent cost-per-wear. It’s sure to be a go-to staple over the next 6 months.
We understand that it might be trickier to shop for boots this season, with social distancing measures and shop closures, so we decided to put a few styles from our favourite high street brands through their paces (literally). From Whistles’ lace-up pair to Arket’s heeled knee-highs, each editor styled-up and reviewed their favourite looks so you can make the most informed decision this season.
