Fashion: Favourite New Boots

When I fall in love with a pair of shoes, I wear them to death. I buy several pairs in all the colours and wear them to death too. I only wish I could get hold of a few more pairs of these boots!

They look much more expensive than their cost. They are well made, the soles are thick, the heels substantial. They are nicely lined inside, with the only blister being caused by a three-hour wear with no socks.

I’ve wandered about town for hours in them, travelled on trains in them, really put them through their paces – and they still look great. This is all the more surprising if you consider my very dodgy gait. I roll my soles as I walk. I’ve destroyed a pair of shoes in a single school day before, I’ve cracked the wooden sole of a (£80) pair of boots in a fortnight. So for these to look virtually as good as new, with very little erosion to the soles and heels, is pretty damn good.

Do you have a favourite pair of winter boots this year?
