Are you wondering which to buy or which to wear with a particular outfit?

I have a pair of shoe boots but they are very high so I tend to wear them for going out in the evening wither with skinny jeans or a dress/skirt and opaques.
During the day I tend to wear shoes, ankle boots or a pair of calf length boots which I love as find them more up to date than knee high but go with both skirts/dresses and jeans.

I got mine in the Mint Velvet sale last Christmas and wore them loads last Winter and already wearing them again this year, neutral colour, very comfy and go with anything!

With tights I'd go knee boots for day and shoe boots for evening. Tbh I'm thinking warmth and practicality over fashion with the knee boots.

Knee highs for me. I don't care if they're supposed to be 'out'. I see loads of people in them!

I might be totally out of touch but I think both are still a current look. I have high leg brown flat biker boots from Asda from a few years ago and chesnut brown brogued flat -ish shoe boots from Topshop. Both have had same amount of wear and Im looking forward to wearing them this winter.

I think low heeled shoe boots look cool with skinnies and dresses. These in leather if I can find them, are on my winter buy list:
