Six pairs of boots to put an autumnal spring in your step


Posted by , 6th September, 2017

You can add a layer or two to shield your skin, you can slip on a hat to keep your ears warm, but when the autumn drags in the colder, wetter weather, it’s primarily our feet that need the investment of a luxury upgrade. It’s the season for skipping over puddles on the pavement and kicking through the colourful autumnal debris on the ground, so do it with designer shoes that don’t turn into a soaking, squelching piece of cloth within five minutes of a downpour. These boots will have your feet ready to brave wind and rain, whilst still being beautiful enough to give you a spring in your step.

Keep your toes toasty when the temperature drops. Shearling linings will forever bring a cosy British look to your outfit, and the buckles on these boots add a biker-chic element. Burberry is at the heart of British luxury fashion, and these boots will be at the heart of my autumn wardrobe.

Make dog walks and country strolls more comfortable, weatherproof, and… stylish. Hunter have always been at the forefront of fashionable wellies, and this pair doesn’t disappoint. In fact, give me a torrential downpour and I’ll be rocking these no matter where I’m going!

For the outfit exuding cool and chic vibes, you need a pair of boots to do the same. The pop of bright red against a contrasting silver zip down the centre will bring cheer to anyone on the verge of a September slump. It’s easy to fall into the trap of wearing darker, more neutral tones when the days get cooler – break the habit with these statement boots from Whistles.

The quirky, rock-and-roll persona of Alexander McQueen’s collections are characterised beautifully in these boots. The classic Chelsea boot silhouette, high-quality black leather and red lacing reminiscent of Celtic wishing trees will add a certain edginess to any outfit.

How can we not include Dr. Martens in our autumn boot round-up? These chunky chukka-style boots, with a fresh athletic air to them, exude luxury and comfort, thanks to their iconic stitching and air-cushioned sole. White, yes, but sturdy (though soft) leather so they’re conveniently wipeable!
