Carvela ‘Storm’ studded biker boots

Carvela Storm studded ankle boots, £179.99

I know this is a bit of a departure from my usual style – I’m much better known for super-high stiletto shoes than I am for chunky boots – but it’s a little-known fact that, when it comes to casual footwear, I have a bit of a soft spot for biker boots.

This isn’t something I’ve actually acted on, mind you. There isn’t a single pair of biker boots in my collection, and the pair I ordered earlier this year went straight back, because they were much too large, and made my feet look like they belonged on a cartoon character. I will persevere, though, and I’m sure that one day I’ll find the perfect biker boots, which should look…well, a lot like these ones by Carvela, actually. They’re chunky, but not too chunky, they have those all-important studs on the leg shaft, and they’re the kind of boots that look like they’ll only get better with age and wear. I suspect I’d have trouble finding the right outfit to go with these, because causal looks aren’t my forte, but I think they – or something very similar – could be worth the effort.

What do you think of biker boots? Do you own a pair?


  • I don’t have biker boots, but my young daughter does. She wears them with EVERYTHING. She’s very girly and the boots “toughen” up some of her dresses. They are surprisingly versatile! If you can find the right pair you might love them too 🙂

  • My feelings towards biker boots are very similar to yours: i don’t own a pair, but i find that i’m becoming increasingly attracted to them. However I don’t think I’m ready to spend so much money (even 100 eur seems a lot) on something that I don’t think fits my wardrobe.

  • I have a few pairs – they’re among my favourite styles. Recently I saw a pair with square studs that I fell in love with but couldn’t afford… but just now while looking for them (as I can’t remember the brand), I’ve found a pair I can (provided the vendor isn’t dodgy)!
