Boots made for Walking all over Winter

We’ve done a “walk-aboot”, survived a lot of shoe envy and done some serious shopping as well. If you’re not a “boots” kind of girl, there are the shorter booties or the even practically-a-shoe “shooties” to pick from. The colours, the detailing, the heels… it’s all too much for the shoe-a-holic senses! Read on below for the hottest in Winter boot trends for ladies…

Top 4 tips you can’t go wrong with:

  1. "Haditall", Nine West, R1699*

    It’s a festival of colour – sueded romantic reds, electric blues and multi-colour designs pivot on sleek high-heels. The mid-length and slim high boots are boasting an array of interesting tops as well. The fold over or fixed fold over detail is popular this season in both the sleek heeled boot and the equestrian-inspired flat boot. If you’re feeling a bit self-conscious that boots are fitting too tight below your knee, then the fold over detail or looser fitting equestrian pump boot is a good choice for you as either of these should not cause leg bulging at the top of the boot.

    Experiment with heights of heels and choose what feels most comfortable on you. The wedges are taking a bit of a backseat this season to make way for some really fun flats and ferocious heels. We love the cool curved and contoured heels posing in the shop displays at the moment. This knee length beauty by Luella has great proportions and the broader heel makes it both easy wearing and elegant. Subtle strap detail criss-crossing makes this leather lovely a bit less cowboy and a lot more chic.

  5. studded boot closeup“Less is more” is a lie. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of loving adornment or detail on those boots. This season sees studs, buckles and criss-cross straps coming to the fore. Just be careful of an overkill of bling – heavy detail is better on mid-length to shorter boots and teams up well with a chunkier heel.

    Flat-out fabulous! The year-on-year rise in popularity of the equestrian vibe boot means that every year we see fresh and interesting reiterations of this very practical and popular style. The real clencher with the equestrian style boot is that it is both refined and real-world wearable. It is easy to slip a pair on over tights or skinny jeans and an investment in a great quality pair of leather equestrian inspired flats can pay off in timeless seasons to come!

    But in terms of practicality, let’s be honest: Cape Tonians love their Wellies! This wouldn’t be a truly Cape Town Winter footwear feature without our favourite weather-tights making an appearance. We found these fantastic boots at Superga, sure to keep your footsies snug and dry. The material is also a much more flexible rubber than the average Wellie boot which allows for easier movement and greater comfort.
