The best things in life are not free. The best things in life are boots! And with the right pair, you’ll be set for several winters to come.

South African winters are short, so the perfect pair of boots can survive a few winters. Choosing the right boots to wear across fashion trends, ever-changing styles and different occasions is a matter of personal style and comfort. Go for a pair you’ll love for more than just one season – your budget will thank you.

These boots were meant for walking

If you struggle to spend the day in high heeled shoes, you may find it easier to keep wedge or block heels on through the day. Even so, making sure you get a comfortable pair is important, especially if you spend a long time on your feet – it isn’t as easy to slip out of your boots under the table as it is to slip out of pumps to rest your feet! If you’re looking for some extra height, consider a wedge heel.

Get the right fit

Shoe size isn’t the only thing to consider when picking boots. The length and size of the trunk of your boots make a big difference. Some women struggle to find a comfortable fit around their calves. A trunk that is either too tight or gapes may exaggerate the size of your legs  The solution for both issues is to go for ankle boots which flatter legs of any shape or size.

It’s all about shape

Fashion trends relating to what shape the tips of our shoes should be are constantly changing. Which is a problem if you’re trying to find a pair of boots to wear for the next few years.

Round-tipped shoes always seem to be in, making them a safer style choice. Plus they’re a lot more comfortable than boots that taper at the end.
