Autumn 2013 Ankle boots

(89 Posts)

Ok, wise women of Style and beauty. Autumn ankle boots to see me through winter. I am a teacher so something to go with skirts, dresses and skinny jeans that have a bit of a heel but are comfy. Are the same styles in again this year or something new? Kinda thinking of something like this
Clarks Moonlit Cool I know, what a cliche, Clarks for a teacher, but they are so comfy..... Open to any ideas and thoughts!

I like those.
A shame they don't do them in my size...their size 9 is too small for me.

i quite like those, but would probs prefer something a bit more edgy. i don't know your style though! and they do look comfortable and versatile.

I have two pairs of ankle boots so don't plan to buy more this year. mine are these and these

What age children do you teach. I work with a Reception child and would avoid suede as I think it would rub as I crawl around the floor! Also you can wipe paint, snot etc off leather.

If you teach older children please ignore the above wink

I think brown suede feels a bit dated suddenly. But if you're not a fashion slave, ignore me! Those ones are nice and will go with everything. And I do love Clarks.

If choosing I would go for leather, black, and totally flat - something like the COS Chelsea boot or Boden Urban Biker, which I'm about to order squeee grin. To be paired with woolly socks in warm colours.

I teach 8-9 year olds, so hopefully a little less snot etc. Foxysocks, love both of the boots - I have a biker boot so I'm looking for something a little tidier IYKWIM, love the Ash jalouse.
See, with my Clarks boot, the black is a shiny black. If it were a suede black I'd be buying them hot off the marks. I do like the camel colour boots too, but they don't fit my purpose so that leaves me with the brown suede.

I bought these last year and they are so comfy, even though I'm not really a heels person. They are still in great condition after having been worn nearly every day in all weathers,size:

I managed to find another pair of these. I already have a semi-battered pair. They are from a couple of years ago.

I also have mini Bailey Uggs (shoot me now) and a pair of Kensington Uggs that will be getting Ebayed as they are too small.

Imscarlet Sun 11-Aug-13 21:29:34

I have Kensington Uggs as well, they have gotten great use, though I did have to size up, so they look like boats on my feet - nothing dainty about them but they are a real utility boot!!

Twinklestein Sun 11-Aug-13 22:20:29

You know what OP I actually prefer your Clarks boots to the Ash boots linked. I also prefer them to the Cos Chelsea & the Boden biker... I'd never have thought they were Clarks they look like Vic Matie'..

TK Maxx have got some lovely ankle boots in at the mo (online).

Imscarlet Sun 11-Aug-13 22:51:06

Thanks Twinklestein. I got the Mascarpone knee high boots a few years back and lived in them, they were so comfortable and these seem to be the same shape/height heel. I'm very tempted....
finlaysmum12, I saw those and did consider them, but I don't like the sole being a different colour. Not fussy at all then.

Imscarlet Sun 11-Aug-13 23:02:07

Morethanwords, gosh they do have some nice boots in at the mo....I could be tempted for a second pair there....the SixtySeven black boots look like a steal for £30, leather too....hmmmm....

MoreThanWords Sun 11-Aug-13 23:48:40

Yes, wish I had bought those when I first saw them - now out of stock in my size I think hmm

My Acne Pistol boots are great, expensive but have had them for three years and still going strong.

ShoeWhore Mon 12-Aug-13 05:36:30

I've got these ones from office and I love them.

snowlie Mon 12-Aug-13 08:40:00

I like them - no idea about suede feeling dated. Boots like this are pretty standard in styling - the important thing is the cut of the shoe and it's impossible to tell what that's like from a pic.

I like them - no idea about suede feeling dated. Boots like these are pretty classic now - the important thing is the cut of the shoe and it's impossible to tell what that's like from a pic.

Oops! grin

jimjamspam Mon 12-Aug-13 09:40:05

These are a bargain & very comfy

primallass Mon 12-Aug-13 10:30:02

I stalked these all last year waiting for them to be reduced. I think I'll have to give in and try them on. Maybe in the tan however. Can't decide.

QueenQueenie Mon 12-Aug-13 11:02:51

FOXYSOCKS, (or anyone else who has them), are the "wood ash" colour Jalousie boots grey? or are the "blue / brown" as the Ash site describes them... They look grey, I want them to be grey!

dirtyface Mon 12-Aug-13 11:08:03

i bought these beauties yesterday

think they might be a bit marmite though tbh grin

missmartha Mon 12-Aug-13 11:32:23

I like Clarks Morgan Carla boots at the mo. The haven't got a heel though.

The brown are particularly nice.
