As the British summertime ends and the clocks go back on Sunday 27th October, we look at the beginning of boot season.
Boots are a fantastically versatile type of footwear, able to be worn with a range of different outfits. Here at British Shoe Company, we have an excellent selection of expertly designed Boots with a huge number of styles, colours and materials. Whether you are looking for a sturdy outdoor winter boot with great traction, slimline leather boots for the office, or casual boots for everyday wear.
We have a number of Brogue boots, Tricker's Stow, Barkers Calder, and the Sanders Aintree to name just a few. They all have their subtle differences but they are all linked by a number of factors. They all have thick Goodyear Welted double soles in either leather or rubber which are hard-wearing, ideal for the wet weather. Half bellows tongue to add even more water repellency and of course the classic brogue patterns which give these boots their distinctive look. these look fantastic worn casually with jeans and a plaid shirt.
These boots can be worn with a number of outfits the smarter boots such as the Berwick Chelsea and Sanders Chelsea are versatile enough to be worn with suits midweek, then at the weekend, exchange the suit for jeans and a shirt and you have a whole other look. The Heavier brogue Henry looks fantastic with jeans around town but is built to last and to be worn hard across all terrain.
Chukka boots, to put it simply, are more casual than Chelsea boots and have distinctive features such as ankle-length uppers, 1-3 sets of eyelets and an open lacing system. Most Chukka boots consist of suede although leather can be used too, especially for use during the winter months when durability is important. They’re nice enough to wear for many different occasions, including the workplace.
