I have hung onto summer as long as I can but the rain and the drop in temperature has meant that I have had to dig out my winter boots. Winter Wellies are a must at this time of year but a new pair of boots, either ankle or knee length, are always tempting to me.
So here is my selection of the new boots that are available online which of course I am resisting in order to avoid any comparisons with Imelda Marcos which tend to come my way from my husband. However I have pointed out to him that men only have to engage with one heel height so do not need quite so many options.
I have tried to choose 3 different pairs of long boots.
The flatform boot from LA REDOUTE that has an elasticated half leg.
The heeled chocolate brown boot from HOBBS Ltd that has an inner leg zip opening. Hobbs always make high quality boots. I have a pair of knee length black suede boots from Hobbs that are 5 years old and still look great.
Finally the Navy blue Microsuede boot with an extra wide calf width from JD WILLIAMS. I no longer have the slim calves of yesteryear so a pair of wide fitting boots that also come in my favourite boot colour, navy, are a must and at this price cannot be ignored.
