ON TREND: 4 Ways To Wear Your Boots

Think of yourself as more of a trainer guy? It might be time to reconsider your options. Opening up a whole new load of looks for your winter wardrobe, designers are delivering ample winter boot styles this season. From (almost) country-appropriate hiking boots via Dolce & Gabbana to the combat boots of the moment from Prada, we’re talking BBE. That’s Big Boot Energy to the uninitiated. Here’s four ways to style out the colder weather.

Maybe it’s the amount of time we’ve spent outside over the past 18 months, but our newfound love for the great outdoors is seeping into all areas of our wardrobes. Think hiking but make it fashion. Dolce & Gabbana are serving up a chunky quilted pair that will be as at home in the city as in the country. While Dsquared2 and McQ are making their interpretation a little more literal with hefty soles, colour-contrast laces and eye-catching stitching.

Our love for oversized, heavy-weight fashion has found its way into our footwear. For AW21, boots are coming with thick, chunky soles – perfect for those of us who like a little added height. Versace have given a twist to the traditional Chelsea boot with their Labyrinth design. Givenchy have built theirs with a handy leather handle at the back. And Valentino have taken cues from the wellington boot with an easy slip-on style and rubber soles.

Heavy-duty combat style boots have been in favour for the past two years and they’re back and bigger than ever. Top of our list? Prada’s sturdy Monolith Biker boots, which have taken things up a notch for AW21, complete with their own removable pouch. Dolce & Gabbana’s come with soft, supple leather. And Vetements complete theirs with trademark splayed across the back.

Prefer your winter boots on the slick side? Enter the Chelsea boot. Playing with the classic, Givenchy have added a square toe, metal cap and hefty block heel. For Gucci, it’s all about the sturdy soles and thick grip. While Tom Ford offer theirs up in a soft chocolate brown suede.
