STYLE. GROOMING. INSPIRATION. ADVICE.
Desert boots are one of the most adaptable styles. You can wear a pair them with a shirt and smart pants as part of your day-to-day work aesthetic or team with a laid-back top and roll-cuff jeans for a night out. The only issue is that they’re predominantly suede, but just cover them with protective spray and they should stay slick all winter.
If you’re stuck with which style of boots to go for, a lace-up pair is always a fail-safe choice. These shoes are as traditional as they come, with added luxurious details — check out the suede tongues and cuffs — while the contrast stitching gives them an added aesthetic edge. And as they’re predominantly leather, they’ll last you for years to come.
If you’re after classic boots with an edge, check out this pair which encompasses three pairs of shoes in one — lace-up boots, brogues and creepers. Whether you’re looking to compile a refined get-up or going for something a little more eccentric, these boots will do the trick. And as they’re leather with an on-trend chunky sole, you’ll be hard pressed to find more robust footwear this season.
Popular with mods in the '60s, Chelsea boots have been a solid shoe choice ever since. They’re ideal to wear on a night out, but also serve as a sound go-to to round off any casual get-ups you may have in mind. This black suede pair make for a great staple option and the stacked soles offer up something a little different.
