The first in our shoepedia series, step it up with our pick of the season’s most stylish winter boots…

With the new year in full swing, there’s never been a better time to revamp your wardrobe and invest in a new pair of boots. From luxe textured leather to elegant suede, browse our shoepedia and find the perfect pair to see you through until spring…

High heel
Sleek, glamorous and refined, a good pair of high-heeled boots will solve those winter evening style woes. Ditch the stilettos and protect your feet from the cold with countless options to choose from. A pointed toe will dress up skinny jeans, while a playful printed pair will take the classic LBD to the next level.

Mid heel
A cool alternative to the high-heeled boot, the mid heel is both practical and on point for the season ahead. For day-long comfort, choose a weighted block style that cuts just above the ankle, then play up the shoe’s edgier side with metal tips or studded embellishment. Pair with a mini dress and cropped jacket for an effortless urban look.

The flat boot has a chic durability that’s irresistible for the winter season. The shoe’s versatile nature means there’s something for everyone – keep it simple with a beautifully crafted Chelsea style or make a statement with suede fringing.

Protect your feet from the icy weather with a cosy pair of shearling boots. Super soft and luxurious, keep the look sophisticated with soft tones and structured leather straps that are simply perfect for après ski.

Over the knee
Elevate your wardrobe with one of the season’s key silhouettes! To elongate the legs, look for styles that sit just above the knee and play around with earthy tones as an alternative to black. Luxurious textures and thick heels only heighten the shoes wearability, so style yours over dark denim or embrace the season’s retro mood with a sixties mini skirt.

Knee boots
This fashion-forward style should skim the top of the calf and cut an elegant, flattering shape. To add some height, go for a concealed wedge and maximise comfort with padded soles and a soft leather lining.

Ankle boots
A staple in every woman’s wardrobe, the ankle boot can be styled with pretty much anything! Ensure a comfortable fit with flexible side panels to give your feet extra room. Depending on your look, add buckles for a tough-luxe feel or keep detail to a minimum and pair with modern separates.

Evening boots
If you know you’re going to be inside for the evening but still want your footwear to ooze winter elegance, after-dark boots are your new go-to. From handcrafted lace to leather peep-toes, these structured works of art go equally well with bare legs or sleek tailoring.

Rain boots
Designed to withstand treacherous weather conditions, black rubber rain boots strike an equestrian inspired silhouette and are just as ideal for rainy city commutes as they are for brisk country walks. If minimalism isn’t for you, look for patterned variations or striking buckled pairs to make a statement.
