Shoeperwoman’s Top 10: Shearling Boots

Alexander McQueen shearling ankle boots, £950

If you’re anything like me, the words “shearling boots” probably instantly make you think of Uggs, and their ilk: or it would’ve done up until now, because this winter the fashion world is just awash with pairs of heeled, shearling boots. They’re as far removed as it gets from the humble Ugg whilst still remaining in the “winter boot” category, but they should be equally cosy (if not quite as comfortable).

Here – in no particular order – are ten of the best of the current crop of high-heeled shearling ankle boots: enjoy!

Burberry biker boots, £695

ASOS ‘Trecker’ shearling effect ankle boots, $92.68

Viktor & Rolf shearling lace-up boots, $750

River Island faux-fur lined boots, £125

Jimmy Choo nappa and shearling boots, £684

New Look buckle boots, £34.99

Topshop ‘Amore’ shearling ankle boots, £95

KG by Kurt Geiger ‘Wentworth’ boots, £190

Gianmarco Lorenzi shearling boots, £859

Now, I know this isn’t a style that’s going to appeal to everyobe, so tell me: what do you think of shearling boots?


  • The Burberry ones surely make me drool… Those from ASOS are nice too, I remember they had a wedge version of these that was absolutely great in cognac. But they all are so darn expensive!

  • Oh yes, those boots are the best! I totally agree with your choice of McQueens (posted them as well!) and River Island.
    I bought the black faux-fur lined boots from River Island 2 weeks ago and they’re perfect! Amazingly comfortable (well, not for long walks..) Funny thing is I like them more than those of Burberry, they’re too wide for my taste..

  • I like my Ugg-Type boots, but they aren’t weatherproof. These should be weatherproof, rugged, wide base for stability, plus looks, then they would really be worthwhile. I’m a believer in functional beauty.

  • I kinda loved them all. I don’t even have shearling boots, uggs included- Now I need them. I am thrilled with all of your selections, and the prices of a few are amazing- for a boot.

  • I heart the River Island ones…. They are the most comfortable boots I own.. Shmae my credit card doesnt agree…

  • I first saw the New Look ones when they first came out and I didn’t like them, then they grew on me very quickly until I could no longer resist. I managed to get my hands on the last pair in my size after going to 3 different stores!! They are perfect and look much better on than in the pictures, real easy to walk in too!
