Sam Edelman Pettys

Price: £190

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

Price: £110

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."

Hudson Horrigans

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."


Aquatalia Marc


Price: £245

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


Price: £185

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

Price: £38

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!"


Ugg Gershwin

Price: £225

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 Boot

Price: £60

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."
