The boots guide: step into winter in style

There’s no doubt about it, the temperature’s dropping fast and winter is definitely here. Now that the winter months have rolled around, you’ll likely want to upgrade your footwear to something a little sturdier and warmer to get you through the cold snap.

If you’re not sure what type of boots suit your style best, read on. I’ve picked out 5 key designs and a few key brands you might opt for this winter.

Red Wing Boots

Red Wing boots are the king of the moc toe boot and for good reason. Each pair is hand made in the USA and signed off by a member of staff for approval. This style is available on the high street but if you’re looking to invest in a boot that could last a lifetime, the Red Wing brand is your go to. Opt for the 6inch in a classic brown or rust to throw in some winter tones and colours.

Chelsea Boot

The chelsea boot offers up style and function in equal measure. They’re the ideal boots for pairing with skinny jeans and can take you from a daytime shopping spree to evening drinks with nothing but a shirt change. Whilst leather options are available, the suede chelsea boot is a classic that’s ideal for casual drinks and Christmas parties this winter.

Dr Martens

Born in the punk era, Dr Martens have played a key part in British style for decades. The range is huge but the classics literally never go out of style and will fit seamlessly into any wardrobe. Both understated and stylish, Dr Marten boots are also extremely durable and the goodyear sole will protect your feet in colder weather year after year.

Desert Boots

A classic boot from the ‘60s that plays a key part in today’s minimalist and streetwear styles. If that’s not your thing, the desert boot can also be paired with your everyday jeans and shirt combo, they’re really that versatile. Choose from high street ranges to keep the cost down or invest in the classic Clarks Originals if heritage is your thing.


If you think of chunky winter boots, then you’ll probably think of Timberland’s. The classic golden yellow boot is completely waterproof with sealed seams meaning your feet will stay dry regardless of how bad the weather gets. Shopping on a budget? The high street has been keen to adopt this trendy worker boot style and put it’s own spin on things too so there’s no reason you can’t get involved in this on trend look!
