Tan ankle boots, £24.99
Late last summer, after yet another day spent trailing over rain-soaked ground in unsuitable shoes, I made myself a promise to never get caught out like that again, and to invest in some nice, low heeled ankle boots which would keep my feet dry, and which I wouldn’t mind getting covered in mud every so often. This explains my recent interest in ankle boots, and why I’m showing you these ones today, even although they’re a little bit different from the type of shoe I usually feature here.
These are by New Look, and remind me a lot of a very similar pair from Zara, which I liked, but stupidly didn’t buy, last season. Unlike the Zara boots, however, which had a paler, suede upper, and would therefore have been that bit easier for me to ruin, these ones are made of imitation leather, so they should be reasonably hard-wearing. (They’ll also fulfil the “I won’t mind too much if they get covered in mud” part of my criteria. Well, there’s no point ruining a good pair of boots, is there?) Tan is also one of my favourite colours for boots, because it looks good with most colours. At the weekend, I saw a woman wearing pale blue jeans and shirt, a camel coloured coat, and boots very like these: she looked great, and is probably one of the reasons I tracked these down today, so credit where it’s due.
The best thing about these is probably the price, though: they’re just £24.99, which is about as cheap as it gets for a pair of boots!
