Ash ‘Joe’ camel ankle boots
I’ve been watching these boots for weeks now, hoping they’d be reduced in the Spartoo sale. Well, I finally got my wish: they’re currently down to £141 from the original £189, but unfortunately that’s still just a little too pricey for my post-Christmas budget, so I’m going to have to wait a little longer, and hope they’re reduced a little further, if I’m ever going to make them mine.
If that day ever comes, however, it’ll be a very happy one for me, because I haven’t called these the perfect camel ankle boots for no reason. Not only is this such a versatile colour, and an awesome neutral to add to your winter wardrobe, I also love the block heel on these: it should make them really comfortable to wear, and while it’s not really in my nature to choose comfort over style, I do think it should be possible to be stylishly comfortable, and I think these boots would achieve that. Although the embroidery on the ankle gives them a bit of a Western feel, they’re still a long way from being cowboy boots, and I think they’re the kind of classic that you could wear forever – and probably all year round, too, if your climate is anything like the one I live in!
These also come in black, which, I have to admit, has given me a bit of a dilemma. If given a choice, I’ll almost always choose lighter colours over dark ones: partly because I find them more flattering, but also because I think winter can be gloomy enough, without adding gloomy clothing into the mix. At the same time, though, there’s no denying that I get a lot of use out of the various pairs of black boots I own already (Er, I guess the fact that I have more than one pair of boots in that category should tell me I don’t need another, huh? Doesn’t stop me wanting them, though…), and I’m sure I could easily find room for another pair, too.
Which colour would you go for?
