From the Isle of Wight to Inverness, all Brits are used to wearing clothes that can weather a storm. So, in terms of footwear, given that a) British men only keep their sandals for the most sweltering of occasions (or just on holiday); b) Formal shoes are only for fancy events and, c) Trainers don’t really do the trick in colder weather, boots are pretty much our autumn to spring saviours!
Think about it: for the next 6 months, there will be nothing in your wardrobe as reliable as a sturdy pair of boots. Specially designed to keep up with our busy lifestyles (and the ever changing weather!), their designs are varied enough in colour, fabric and style that you can wear them with an array of outfits; for work, dress, or play. Choose well, and they have a way of looking as rugged or refined as you need them to, putting a polished twist on your weekend casuals or adding a tough finishing touch to sophisticated suiting. Frankly, is there anything they can’t do?
