Autumn’s back and that means long walks in the country, open fires… and boots! Lovely leather boots. Boots to keep you warm and dry, and boots to get you noticed. Get out your old favourites or buy some new ones and be sure they’ll see you through many more years to come. If you are buying, here’s our sustainable selection of our favourite women’s boots for this season, and way beyond!
Day to night – The Aline by Musier’s heels are high enough for a bit of evening glamour but sturdy enough to see you through a day on your feet. With luscious, slightly glazed leather and colour-coordinated zip, they come in any colour you want, as long as its black.
Classic style – Common Projects’ Chelsea boot does not move far from the established, classic style, but it is a pretty perfect interpretation. Made in Italy, in black leather with tonal elastic inserts, a gold serial number stamped above the heel separates these from the rest.
Patently perfect – They don’t come much sleeker than these Miista Ekatarina boots in tan patent leather. The square-toed sliver-heeled lines could have jumped straight from the sixties. With products designed in London’s East End and crafted in Alicante, Spain, Miista was founded in 2010 by Galician born Laura Villasenin.
Doctor’s orders – In smooth leather, these classic eight-hole Dr Martens can be worn with anything from dungarees to a cocktail dress. The goodyear welted ‘AirWair’ soles guarantee comfort and the leather guarantees style!
Active autumn – These classic brown premium nubuck leather Timberlands can cope with just about any activity in any weather. And with laces made from recycled plastic bottles and eco-conscious Prima Loft linings, you can be sure it is not just the leather that is sustainable.
Autumn trend – Chunky, combat soles are this autumn’s dominant profile and these mid-calf Chelsea boots from Ganni sit on top of some of the season’s boldest. Round-toed with pronounced leather welts, these boots mean business.
Date night – These thigh-high Alexander McQueen beauties might be a major investment, but there’s a whole lot of top-quality leather involved. A high block heel and pointed toes complete the look and scream sophistication.
