There’s nothing I love better in the winter than a decent pair of winter boots that will see me through the cold season and last for the whole year afterwards. I always look for good quality, knee high boots that fit well around my calves and zip up. Just before I went on holiday my boots from last year finally gave up the ghost and I tasked myself to look for a new pair once I got back from holiday. That’s when Brantano came to the rescue.
I took a look at their vast range of ankle boots as I love a good ankle boot for a night out but I knew exactly what I needed to see me through this winter so opted for these Emilio Luca X Trumpet knee high boots (RRP £48, currently £36).
I believe when it comes to boots, it is much better to pay a slightly higher price than grabbing from one of the cheap high street stores as it is often true that if you buy cheap, you buy twice. Winter boots are something I only buy once or twice a year so I allow a little more wiggle room in my budget and found these were down the lower end of my budget – how great is that?
Let me just say it is very hard to get good photos of boots when they’re attached to your feet and your usual photographer is either at work or has the man flu – yep, that’s what I’ve been dealing with recently!
The boots are super comfy and as you can see fit snugly on my calves without being too tight or too loose. They haven’t caused any rubbing which some new shoes or boots do and are super easy to walk in, even with a slight heel. I’ve been really enjoying going for walks in them, through the fallen leaves and across my local common, and they’re showing no signs of wear and tear.
They’re super easy to clean if needed – often needed when walking across the common in this village – any mud or whatever simply wipes off. I will definitely be picking up more footwear from Brantano in the future if the quality is as good as these boots. They’re my new favourite footwear and I am wearing them everywhere.
Do you always purchase a decent pair of winter boots for the cold season?
