Ankle boots

I’m looking for a pair of flat ankle boots that will last for years, I’m happy to look at different styles etc but in my head I’d like tan suede ones,

Does anyone have any recommendations?
My boots always seem to end up with the sole peeling off and that does not make for warm feet in winter.

I have these ones from We Are Cara. They go really well with jeans and skirts!

What is your budget?

IMO the best ankle boots come from Penelope Chilvers but they are quite expensive. In my view, cost per wear they are definitely worth it though, and the styles are classic.

I have the inclement boots and can report that they are such brilliant boots.

I also think penelope chilvers are great, and russell and bromley do great ones too. They last ages.

Oh god now I want those olive green inclement boots..<drools>

I’ve had long lasting boots from the French brand Bobbies

I have a pair Blundstone boots. Seem to be lasting well, and very comfortable.

I don't think tan suede will last you years...

But my most comfortable, and long lasting are Sam Edelman Pettys, or H Hudson boots.

Have you looked at Duo Boots? They do ankle and knee length boots...

@Bluntness100 I adore mine, two years in, I wear them most days and I am still excited about them.

Bluntness100 Thu 03-Sep-20 18:06:05

I’m seriously tempted, I just keep buying expensive boots every winter though,,🤪

Russell and Bromley
That is all

I have a size 9/10 feet. I always end up with cheap fugly ones

Timberland? Some of the chelsea boot types are nice.

I'd rule out suede, try nubuck instead. Leather is better but not patent leather as they tend to be unyielding.

I've drooled over Penelope Chilvers boots not that long ago. Didn't get them because I won't look after suede properly.

Fairfax & Favour do nice tan riding boot styles. There's a less expensive make too.

Depends what you mean by “last for years”. I think ankle boots are outdated now so you might not want to wear them year on year

MikeUniformMike Thu 03-Sep-20 20:31:43

Why did I click that link? So many nice boots.
The cropped leather ones are nice.

Oh I know <sigh> the long boots are gorgeous too.

I appreciate that Kate Middleton is not everyone’s style icon but she has these long boots and I would very much like some too.

Chattercino Thu 03-Sep-20 21:25:34

I have these and they are beauts!!

MikeUniformMike Thu 03-Sep-20 21:29:15

Yes. The CoW wears Fairfax and Favour boots of a sort of similar style.

KM would look good in anything and is always dressed appropriately. Her MIL wore some real horrors but was a style icon.

MikeUniformMike Thu 03-Sep-20 21:30:44

I really like the CoW's style in general.
PD once she got the dressing to her body type was transformed.

MikeUniformMike Thu 03-Sep-20 21:32:35

Cross posted, and indeed they are but I'd get nubuck
