Winter boots with a wow factor to brighten up your wardrobe
Alas, summer is over - time to invest in some snug footwear to see you through the colder months
Sam Edelman Pettys
Best for: An effortless day-to-night transition. These suede ankle boots can be dressed up or down - perfect if you don't want aching feet after a night on the tiles.
MNers say: "I swear by Sam Edelman Pettys, every colour/style imaginable. With a bit of searching you can find a deal - very, very comfy, and still look fantastic after a year's wear."
Dr. Martens Flora Boots
Best for: Those who favour a design classic. Dr. Martens' take on the iconic Chelsea boot is a beauty. Polished leather and the trademark DM sole mean they're hard-wearing too.
MNers say: "I bought some Dr. Martens Flora boots in black. They are super-comfy and go with everything. I was worried about them being too chunky but they look great."
Price: from £99
Best for: A twist on the classic suede boot. With biker-style leather straps and a distressed beige finish, you won't have to worry about keeping them shiny.
MNers say: "I have battered and mistreated my Hudson Horrigans for just over a year and they look as good as new."
Best for: Practical glamour. Strut through winter in weather-resistant suede, and laugh in the face of the downpours to come.
MNers say: "I bought my first Aquatalia boots five years ago and they have been amazing. I've just cleaned them for this winter and they still look nearly new."
Glenalmond Tweed Boots
Best for: Adding an intriguingly mannish vibe. These statement boots are hard-wearing without compromising on style.
MNers say: "These are dreamy..."
Caterpillar Bruiser Scrunch
Best for: Quality on a budget. With a leather upper and a rubber sole, these boots were most definitely made for walking.
MNers say: "So comfortable, and they kept my feet lovely and dry in a downpour yesterday. Really sturdy soles, a bit like DMs. They feel really grippy too - I think they'll be great when it gets icy. And have you seen the price?! Bargain of the century!"
Best for: A longer-length boot that doesn't compromise on warmth. These beauties are lined with sheep-skin - like walking on a fluffy cloud.
MNers say: "They're so comfy and warm, I love them. They're lined all the way up."
Next Forever Comfort Strap Biker
Best for: A change from standard black or brown. The fab oxblood shade adds a subtle pop of colour to winter outfits, but don't worry if you're not ready to veer away from monochrome - they're available in black too.
MNers say: "Not only are they supremely comfortable, they seem to match everything I've tried them on with."
