We are right in the thick of winter and though temperatures range from 75 degrees one week to 40 degrees the next, there is nothing better than having a reliable pair of boots on those frigid days. To prepare for the cool season, I have saved up from summer 2019 through now to purchase three different pairs of boots. When selecting the shoes, I had three goals in mind: elevate my style, pick durable materials that will last for a long time and opt for colors that will easily match the clothes already in my wardrobe.
The first pair I purchased were these rich, brown riding boots from Anne Klein. I adore these boots. They keep my feet warm, the heel isn’t too high and most importantly, they are super cute! I liked these boots so much that I ended up getting the same pair in black.
In my opinion, the black pair doesn’t look as striking as their brown sisters since the metal hardware accent piece is silver. But I have to say it is so refreshing to finally have a pair of black boots that don’t look too masculine or have a rounded toe.
I also purchased black leather ankle booties from Vince Camuto this season. I was a bit hesitant about this pair since the heel is higher than what I was originally searching for and the wrap-around strap near the ankle is an edgier design. Once I received them, however, I really enjoyed how different they were from the other shoes in my collection.
Overall, I’m really happy with my purchases and would definitely recommend them. I will say that all of these boots run a bit narrow. They fit me very comfortably but if you have a wider foot, I would recommend sizing up a half size.
