The First Boots of Autumn

October 2, 2013

We have been really lucky with the weather this year. We have had a gorgeous summer and it seems to have lasted well into September. It is only in the last couple of weeks that I have decided the time has come to put away my summer shoes and put on the first boots of autumn. There is something poignant about doing this, it is a way of saying you know that the weather is about to change for the worse. It is an admission that rainy grey days and snow are on the way. It is saying that your feet need to be ready for the winter, after all there is nothing worse than cold wet feet.

What do you look for in an Autumn boot? These days I am practical. I need a boot that I can take for long walks though the country park with the dog. A boot that will see sunrises with me, whatever the weather. Boots that will allow me to jump in leaves and plod though the snow without slipping. Boots that I can go to work in and drive in without heels getting in the way. A few studs and buckles never go amiss either, I am not quite ready to give up my inner rock chick.

So what did I choose? I opted for a lovely pair of Lotus Biker Boots from Barratts. These tick all the boxes for me, they look smart and stylish whilst being comfy. The heels are not too high and I reckon they will tramp along a few paths with me.


The buckle detailing is perfect, not too flash but just enough to add a touch of attitude. They even look smart inside with a tartan lining. The zipper makes it easy for me to pull them on as well.

What do you think of my choice? What boots are you wearing this year?

Disclosure: I was sent some boots from Barratts in return for an honest review. I was not told what to write and my opinions are my own.
