Don’t get cold feet
The UK cold weather snap is officially here as we woke up to crisp frost and pink sky this morning.
I immediately rummaged around to find my trusty pair of shearling boots for the school run and then spotted a picture of Sienna Miller on Instagram looking like her usual cool self in a camel coat, leopard print tights and Gucci logo feet warmers. I was smitten.
Naturally, I immediately jumped online to track down a pair and came face to face with numerous shearling options.
Living in the countryside, I am immediately drawn to a hiking style as not only are they sturdy, but they have also proven to be one of trendiest silhouettes of the season.
The new UGG’s
Next up were the designer UGG-like shearling boots that feel a little more sluggish and casual – perfect for lazy winter mornings. Personally, I feel they are too laid back for every day but I’m sure come Christmas morning, they would seem like the best footwear option.
If you’re a fan of chunky soles – such as the BV Tire boots from Bottega Veneta – then the Prada Monolith stompers will make you feel like a tough b*tch while keeping your feet nice and toasty.
Whether you’re a lace-up or slip-on-and-go kinda gal, below I have selected my wish list of shearling boots that will give you a sense of comfort with a dose of style on the side. There are versions with heels (like the one’s I’m wearing in the top image) but I decided to stick to flats. I think we should give our feet a break after a year we’ve had!
