When it comes to the best shoes to wear in the cold wet months of winter, the ankle boot is hard to beat, and this season the colour to go for is black
The black ankle boot is a staple of any wardrobe. It’s a go-with-anything, wearable-in-any-weather stalwart that works no matter the season.
As well as being seen on the autumn and winter catwalk at Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, they were also seen for spring and summer 2020 at Balenciaga, Chloe, Burberry and Dior – making the black boot the piece to buy now and watch as the price per wear tumbles over the next year.
The great thing about the trend this season – and next – is that it’s not limited to one style. There are elegant heeled boots, chunky combat boots, easy to wear Chelsea boots and, the fashion team’s favourite, the square-toed boot. The only key ingredient is that the boot is black.
Taking proper care of your garments can add years to their lifespan, which is great for both the environment and your wardrobe. From washing silk to essential leather maintenance, keep reading for our definitive guide on caring for your favourite Whistles pieces.
We use only the highest quality leathers, suedes and other materials to produce our range of footwear, however occasionally slight marks and variations in surface colour and texture can occur in our products. This is an inherent characteristic of natural materials which may develop further during wear. Such marks should not be mistaken for faults, as it is part of the unique appeal of leather.
These sell-out boots are back, but thanks to their directional style, we’re betting they won’t be around for long. Raise the style stakes during the 9-5 by wearing with cropped, wide-legged trousers or a patterned midi-dress.
Not all shoes come fully waterproofed, so we recommend treating these shoes with a waterproof spray before the first wear. Specialist sprays are available for a variety of different leather types. If in doubt take the shoes with you when purchasing a shoe care product and ask for advice as to which product is most suitable.
After natural wear and tear you may want to revitalize the color of your shoes. This can be done with specialist sprays which have a similar tone to your shoe leather. We recommend making a trial on the inside of the shoe beforehand to ensure a perfect match and avoid any unwanted color change.
The metal toe cap gives these boots a subtle element of evening interest, making them the perfect pair for upping the ante after dark.
Aeyde was created in Berlin, but the line is produced in Italy to create contemporary women’s footwear designs at affordable prices. Think clean shapes in luxury materials, with a range of different shoes from pretty boots to elegant heels, as well as a few chic flats.
But more about the brand first. Aeyde is committed to making sustainable footwear, so it buys directly from the manufacturer. It’s also chosen to leave out pricing components that are costly for customers only, meaning it can keep the price lower for us.
