When the autumn-winter season arrives, and the elements are in full effect, the only footwear style that can successfully blend form and function while handling rain, snow and the cold is a sturdy winter boot.
The winter boot comes in many guises, from an iconic Chelsea boot to a dessert boot or a simple ankle boot. The hiking boot has recently been a popular silhouette, bringing the outdoor aesthetic into the high street.
This season the winter boot has been given a chunky sole upgrade. Gone are the understated soles, replaced with exaggerated sole transforming the footwear staple into a street-inspired shoe.
