Spend the season in style in these chunky fur-lined hiking boots.
But aside from the fact that it could mean another year without family and friends, there is also the consideration that a repeat of last December could mean a return to our once-a-day al fresco locked down selves.
After all, one of the few stylistic virtues to be born of locked-down life was, in fact, the return of the hiking boot – albeit a hiking boot with the kind of high-fashion makeover all manner of haute brands gave their walking wares.
From Gucci’s sell-out collaboration with The North Face to Bottega Veneta’s endorsement of ankle-length puddle boots, fashion has got functional in recent years and it’s time you did too with a pair of comfy and achingly cool fur-lined hiking boots. According to Google Trends, searches for the chunky-soled stompers have spiked by 60% in the last week.
But for the fashion conscious, don’t look away just yet: these are cosy shoes that can be as easily slipped on with your workout gear as they can be with a slinky slip dress. The point is to keep your toes toasty and your feet happy, and there’s no other footwear that promises to do both.
