Boots to Beat The Chill

If, like us, you’re living in denial that it’s only going to get colder over the next few months, it’s time to face facts. And, if there’s one thing that makes the thought of those icy temperatures that little bit more bearable, it’s the excuse to upgrade your winter boots. From shearling lined bikers that are like a duvet for your feet to insulating over-the-knees (trust us, nothing keeps the heat in like them) meet the winter boots ready to beat the chill – and whatever other meteorological delights Mother Nature decides to throw at us between now and mid-March…

Practical and on-point (a winning combination we think you’ll agree) Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Sly' combines the ever-cool biker boot with this season’s love of all things faux fur. If sensible doesn’t exist in your fashion vernacular, this is what we’d call a wardrobe happy medium thanks to the merging of an ultra-comfy biker shape and a burst of fluffy ombre faux fur. Keep styling simple to let them standout – slim jeans and a chunky jumper are all you need.

If bikers are your bag but you prefer something less statement, you’ll love the Kurt Geiger London 'Richmond'. With twin straps and chunky gold-tone buckles, biker boots don’t come more classic than this. But it’s what’s inside that makes Richmond the ultimate boot investment – a seriously cosy lining crafted from genuine shearling that takes the warmth factor off the scale. Add in supportive cushioning to the sock and you’re looking at one enduring boot buy. Both Richmond and Carvela Kurt Geiger’s faux fur-lined 'Snug' sit on cleated soles that provide much-needed grip on wet weather days. As well as being insanely cosy, our fuzzy-lined biker boots are beyond versatile. Up the cosy factor even further by wearing with a shearling jacket, or try with printed midi dresses for a feminine spin on the tough vibe.

The appeal of a knee-grazing boot when the temperatures drop is obvious, so we’re very happy about this season’s knee-high revival. A flat equestrian-inspired style will see you through the season and stand the test of time. In rich tan or go-with-everything black, Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Waffle' add a polished touch to any outfit but will look especially good with this season’s sweater dresses. It’s the subtle details that elevate the simple riding boot to luxe status, from Waffle’s gold horsebit and zip to the buckle and chunky gold chain decorating Carvela Kurt Geiger’s equally elegant 'Wrap' boots.

The knee-high boot’s racier sister, over-the-knee boots offer a few inches of extra coverage that make all the difference when it comes to keeping you toasty. Sitting mid-thigh and crafted from buttery suede, Kurt Geiger London’s 'Violet' boots are already a firm favourite among the style set with Emma Hill and the We Are Twinset girls working them with their latest wrapped-up looks. Made to be worn slightly slouchy, the 85mm cone heel not only ups their on-point credentials but makes them comfortable to wear all day. For day, it’s all about cosy knitwear and denim, so take a break from your straight cuts and dig out your trusty skinnies. Come evening, they look great under silky printed midi dresses and thigh-flashing mini hemlines alike. The only decision is black or grey…
