Boot Season...

September 17, 2019

Well, YEAH; boot season’s here. It never really goes away for me, but THE REAL BOOT season has definitely arrived. That wonderful time of year when I can actually wear my beloved foot gloves without contracting some kind of nasty fungus.

So, what you going to be wearing? Well here's a couple of my favourites.

It felt right to start my first ever blog with some boot chat. My Instagram page isn’t always about boots, but more about sustainable style.

Fashion that doesn’t cost the earth; in more ways than one. I wouldn’t say I’m particularly eco-friendly, I just try to be sensible with the clothing I purchase, by not going for the latest ‘fashion’ but more about buying a stylish piece that’ll stand the test of time.

It’s safe to say I’m pretty much, barring bedtime; always in boots. I love ‘em. They look great with anything.

A couple of my favourite brands are @trickers_shoes and  @jeansda_jeans

Tricker’s are obviously a well-known global brand, producing footwear since 1829, with this being their 190th year. I have quite a few differing styles of Tricker’s including the Stow country boot, the Burford and the Brett in Iris cordovan. Their workmanship is second to none, which kind of goes without saying with a brand that’s been around for 190 years and still owned by the same family. I think that’s one of my favourite things about this heritage brand, the history. The passion that everyone who works for them has is resounding. 

Jeansda, aren’t so well known, but are really growing in popularity. I have their Lancelot semi-dress boots and the construction is wonderful, the fit is always spot on and the last shape is rugged but sleek. I really love the feel of the higher heel and the CXL, it’s robust, but not too thick.

They use a Cat’s Paw heel, which I hadn’t come across before, but are well-known with boot purists. It’s really comfortable and grips particularly well. I also really love how the toe box isn’t flat, I hate boots that have a flat toe box or a toe box that will collapse over time.

So, there you go, a couple of my favourite boot brands. I’ll be writing about all sorts of stuff over the coming months, so pop back and please take a look. Let me know any topic suggestions you'd like to know more on.

Also, check out my man @almostvintagestyle on Instagram and his blog at https://almostvintagestyle.com he has some super dope style and some interesting opinions.
