Every year, as we approach winter, I always look at adding a new pair of quality boots to my collection. This season however, has been a tough one as there are three boots on my wishlist: (1) A great pair of comfy black ankle boots, (2) a beautiful pair of tan, slightly heeled ankle boots and (3) a pair of structured, high quality traditional riding boots.
So far, I’m happy to say that number one has been checked off the list, with these stunners from Saint&Summer.
The style is called “Swagger” and these are exactly what I had been looking for! Structured, comfortable and stylish ankle boots that I can wear every day, all day if needed.
Like all of Saint&Summer’s shoes, these too are “jelly” shoes and they are incredibly lightweight and just plain beautiful. They feel like I’m walking on air, and since they are jelly, I don’t have to worry about ruining them in the rain.
Love, love, love them!
The stretchy sides allow for my foot to easily slip in (provided I unbuckle the belt of course) and they fit snug, so there aren’t any massive gaps around the sides. For those of you gals with skinny legs, these will also look fab as they have a very narrow “tongue” detail that elongates your leg and doesn’t look bulky.
Try them on, you’ll probably join me in wishing they were available in more colours too!
Then for your man, I have a beautiful pair of winter boots, because your perfect accessory also needs to look stylish you know!
The hubs only had one pair of boots in his shoe-collection. Living in Durban meant there was no need for boots, except for a pair of Wellies (hence his one pair), but now that we live in smarter, colder Jozi, he needed a pair of great boots, but hadn’t found ones he liked. Until these beauts from Hi-Tec fell in love with his feet!
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “isn’t Hi-Tec a brand of hiking boots?”. Well ya, but they’ve recently added a beautiful line of stylish men’s casual shoes to their Carrick collection and these Bradford Hi boots are just one of the very stylish pairs available.
They sit on the ankle and look really stylish, especially with distressed blue jeans – but I think they would look great with a pair of black skinny jeans for a more tailored look too!
The Hi-Tec Bradford Hi’s have full grain leather uppers, making them durable, while the EVA sockliner provides comfort. The brass eyelets are rustproof (so he can sing in the rain with you), and they have a durable moulded rubber outsole with leather inserts.
In other words, quality shoes he will love!
I love the distressed look these boots have going on, with a slight two-tone toe effect. They really look sleek and are the perfect city shoes for the urban cool dude.
