I pretty much live in black boots but I’m always drawn to the chunky pairs with buckles, zips and big soles. However, when I spotted this slightly more girly pair in the Topshop sale for a bargain price, they went straight in my basket.
They are a faux suede (maybe not a good choice for the Manchester rain) and have a unique lace-up detail at the back with two tassels. They also have a cut out design at the side, which does mean that I can’t get away with wearing my Christmas socks anymore… That said, they are easy to style with black/ nude tights, or as they are shown here on the Topshop website, with bare feet. They are skinny in shape and have a small block heel. I’ve already worn them a couple of times and they were perfectly comfortable for an afternoon of walking around London and squeezing on the tube in rush hour, so I know I’ll be getting a lot of use of them.
