​Your guide to long boots this winter

by Alison Fuglsang, Marketing and Customer Service

Nothing will keep you as warm as a long boot. The extra coverage over the leg makes all the difference especially on those truly icey days, a long boot is absolutely essential. Let us help you find the right long boot for you as we explore our new season styles.

Long boots for work or an occasion

Although long boots can be very functional, they can also be sophisticated and elegant - and ideal for work or a night out. If you're drawn to the colour depth of a brown boot then Martina by Sempre Di is for you with its classic elegance in luxurious Italian leather. Completed with a Cuban-inspired mid heel, these boots are perfect for day and night and their classic style will never go out of fashion. Wear with jeans during the day for a smart casual look, or a bright dress for a stunning look on a night out.

   

For a dressy high boot in a black, look no further than Nadia Long by Hispanitas. These boots are a wonderful combination of sophistication, elegance and timeless design. Featuring an almond shaped toe, patent leather panels and a subtly striped block heel, the attention to detail is exceptional. This boot will dress up any outfit, and would stand out paired with stockings and a knit dress.

            

A long boot doesn’t have to have a heel to be dressy; Sempre Di’s 11.561 sports a comfortable 2.5cm heel that is in a contrasting tan colour to the black leather of the boot. This colour combination, along with its pointed toe and soft leather and elastic panelling, creates the most graceful low-heeled long boot you could wish for. These would be absolutely divine paired with a shirt dress.

   

For everyday

For a boot that is the perfect combination of casual everyday wear but is also easily styled with pants, skirts or dresses, try Carmela’s suede 66931. The matte texture of suede creates a depth of colour, creating a more sophisticated appearance that other leathers occasionally lack. With a 3.5cm block heel and almond toe, this boot is endlessly comfortable, while the black suede will dress up any outfit.

          

For another versatile everyday boot try Sempre Di’s Z11. This oiled-suede boot reaches over the knee so will provide ultimate warmth, it has a small 3.5cm heel for all day wear and the rich brown colour makes these boots perfect to wear with skinny pants or stockings and a floral dress.

         

Perfect with pants

The 9635 high boot by Pikolinos is the ultimate jean boot; its warm tan colour and riding-style design make it perfect with both blue and black jeans. Pikolinos have incorporated striking cut-out edging along the seams of the boot that really lifts these boots into something special that you will find yourself wanting to wear every day.

   

    

If your style is casual and your go-to pant is a warm comfy legging, then Ace by CLD (Cloud) is for you. Comprised of soft black leather, a grippy sole, ultra soft footbed and elastic panelling at the back to ensure a warm, firm fit around the leg, these boots will give you endless comfort all day long. Their simple, understated look is incredibly easy to style for everyday wear and if you want to create a smarter outfit try them with black or grey jeans, a blouse and a trench coat.

     

For a standout style you can’t go past, try Fly London’s Mol 2 in tan. An incredibly popular brand, Fly London are famous for both their distinctive chunky, combat styles, and the high level of comfort all their shoes offer. The Mol 2 will make you stand out from the crowd with its thick, corrugated wedge sole, buckle detailing and unique grey-toned tan colouring. Although perfect with skinny pants and jeans, they would create a great contrast outfit is combined with a floaty knee-length skirt.
