The perfect autumn boots – the search is on!

Put it down to yesterday’s downpours. I spent ages checking out the new season’s boots online with a girlfriend, bottomless mugs of tea in hand.

Like me, the friend in question likes the idea of high heeled boots more than the (teetering) reality. I walk like I’m wearing stilts in anything steeper than an inch (honestly. I lose my centre of gravity immediately). Which is a shame, because I love the look of them. And all the wedge/platform boots which are back again this season.

Here are a couple of styles we tagged in the name of  ‘tiny heel but stylish’ research …

These from Boden (£199). Liking the clean, simple lines …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… and a cheaper alternative from Next (£75). Never gone for patent before, but these aren’t too glossy and could, don’t you think, look great with black leggings, skinny jeans or skirts with opaque tights?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That said, the tall, snuggly  FitFlop boots I got two years ago are still going strong (like the original FitFlops, they go on forever). The shorter autumn styles are just in and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s new in the longer lengths for winter. I could happily live in FitFlops all year round …

I SO didn’t want to be thinking about boots already.

Promise to be back in summer next week! …
