Or rather, feast your eyes on our selection, chosen to reflect key trends in this seasonal staple.
The combat boot: This winter we’re welcoming the plethora of rugged-soled but fashion-forward boots that have popped up everywhere. The higher cut of this Chelsea style ups the stakes, making them a great choice. Dune London Palms £140 dunelondon.com
Tasselled: We are loving the equestrian vibe here, but what makes these boots unique is the interchangeable tassel. Fringing has crept back into favour and that pop of colour brings some much-needed cheer. The Heeled Regina £365 fairfaxandfavor.com – tassels from £20
Rock ’n’ Roll: A white boot may be a tall order, but the deep-V of that scallop, coupled with studs and western heel have seduced us. Alnwick Boots £199 hush-uk.com
High boots: These high-leg boots are giving us serious 80s vibes. The forest green suede helps dispel the Pretty Woman vibe but that high heel keeps them uber-sexy. We’re also gratified to note that Mango have them in both their smaller and larger sized collections. £169.99 mango.com
Cult classic: Not only a seriously comfortable and practical hiking boot, the Nanette by heritage brand Grenson has achieved cult status as the must-have winter boot for style mavens of all ages and genders. Shown here in snakeskin leather, but available in variety of colours and lengths. £295 grenson.com
Slouch: Especially for those who find the blacks, greys, and brown tones of winter anathema to their colour-loving souls. One of Irregular Choice’s more restrained designs but still vivid in leather-free pinks and burgundy. No Slouch £119 irregularchoice.com
The Square Toe: It’s a warm welcome back to the square-toed boot, the best dressed of which include a geometric heel and manifests in a suitably disruptive shade. Tick, tick, tick and a round of applause to Cos. £150 cosstores.com
