The Patent Boot

It’s very rare I am getting myself dressed and I feel like I have a gaping hole in my wardrobe – for one – I keep clothes for ever – I still wear pieces I’ve had since before University. And secondly – with the amount of clothes I buy of course its no surprise. But the other evening getting ready for a (rare) night out and I couldn’t find a pair of boots I wanted to wear. The only heeled ankle boots I have are suede. Nothing with a harder edge. Two pairs of soft suede leather heeled boots which I still love but bought pre-children in the style of the ‘pistol’ boot but from Russell and Bromley. One black and one beige. I just wanted something a little tougher – more modern and with a bit of attitude…

I wear my Acne Jensen patent leather boots – to death! They were such a good investment. Simple enough to wear with anything but the patent leather just makes them a little bit special. And that night I was desperate to just add a heel to my Jensens. I ended up wearing some court shoes which are my go-to easy to wear and extremely comfortable high heels. They’re from LK Bennett and anyone looking for a comfortable high heel I would highly recommend these you can dance all night in them and not feel a thing.

Anyway… so this started me on an Acne Jensen style heeled boot search. I didn’t want to spend too much as unlike flat boots I know I’ll only wear these every now and again. & Other Stories was my first port of call… then Zara, H&M, Mango… then I spotted a few online at Topshop. I ordered two pairs – the Hoxton and the Mambo – and the Hoxton just fitted like a glove. With heels comfort is key for me otherwise I just will not wear them and its money wasted. Painful evening shoes can ruin an evening. And when you go out as little as I do – nothing can put that at risk! 😉 I’ve linked both the boots here for you, the Hoxton is the cheaper one much to my delight when I chose it… and the way it dips at the front is super flattering on the leg too…

So after filling my little wardrobe hole I thought I needed to share the love and introduce you to the boot you need in your sartorial armoury… I’ve popped my edit below and a plethora of styling inspo below that.
