Summer seems to finally be releasing her grip upon us, and as the cooler days of Autumn begin to quickly sweep in, you may perhaps want to give some thought to your choice of footwear for the upcoming months.
A pair of boots or hard-wearing shoes are definitely an important investment for the cooler months. Aside from keeping your feet warm and dry, they are also invaluable for traversing the ice and snow on your way to work (well if not, your average city pavement provides quite the obstacle course). Functionality aside, a pair of boots certainly make for a nice addition to just about any autumnal outfit. Pair them with a wool blazer and gingham shirt for a smarter look, or pair them with a worn in pair of jeans and knitted sweater for the weekends.
For those who may not want to go full out with a pair of 8-Eye boots, the desert boot is the perfect solution. Versatile enough to be worn for just about any occasion, they are certainly an easy step into the world of boots and hard wearing footwear. A simple pair of camel or chocolate coloured suede desert boots could easily see you through the winter, however if you require a slightly more colourful approach, then the latest releases from Dr Martens should definitely have you covered.
The Manton desert boots, with their colourful contrast soles, would add a beautifully vibrant touch to your outfit. A simple colour play of either complimentary or contrasting colours with your chosen sole could add that perfect dash of variety and individuality. Some may however also feel the equally colourful 1461 3-Eye shoes a nicer option. Dr Martens sell like hot cakes, if only for their legendary soles, and the 1461 shoes would definitely be a sturdier alternative to your average shoe. -D.K.
