The staple winter style everyone needs in their wardrobe

Finding the perfect long boot for your style and preference can often result in years of searching. Maybe it’s been a few years since you wore or owned a pair of long boots, and this season may have the perfect pair for you! Our collection of long boots, whilst being small, has a lot of options for fit, style and occasion. Let’s take a look!

Long boots have been a fashion staple for generations.  Not only are they practical, but they’re versatile. You can pair them with any outfit for a relax casual look or dress them up for more formal occasions.  

Originally long boots were created out of the need for a man’s riding boot in the 15th Century. In the later part of the 20th Century the long boot was refined as a women’s fashion boot.

Long boots usually rise to the knee or just under. They are normally tighter around the leg shaft and can be relaxed or fitted around the ankle. The benefits of long boots are that they elongate the leg, while keeping you warm.

This classic style continues to be a key wardrobe staple. Let’s look at what’s trending in long boots this season:
