Forever 21

Ni Hao

How we love this brand though marginally dubious it may sometimes seem. Bringing you the latest in fashion from the streets of Shanghai, Hong Kong and Korea, the winter collection sees plenty of boots thankfully. From solid army sorts to fringe embellished wedge ones, we love that they don’t mindlessly sell woollen ones for the Bangalore non-winter.

Not your fancy high-street {unless Brigade Road and Commercial Street count}, this store was around selling boots before the onslaught of foreign brands. While you can certainly make out that these aren’t designer wear, if you can carry of fur-lined knee highs or diamante booties, then head on over because you’ll have a shelf or two to pick from. Be careful of sizes though as they differ from boot to boot.

Forever 21

The current rage for all things fashionable, and at reasonable rates, Forever 21 will spoil you with their collection of boots that range from practical and flat to over-the-top party ones. We particularly love their faux suede selection which comes in Chelsea style {block heel and flat} as well as ankle level. On offer are also knee high ones that are great for the mild winter. Pay attention to their ankle-strap booties too, they’re very chic.

Marks and Spencer

What we’d give for the entire range of M&S boots to come to India. But alas, we have to make do with a few Chelsea boots, tan and black cowboy ones, woolen UGG sorts and block-heel Jodhpur boots. Clearly, we being a bit greedy in asking for more. Check in just around Christmas and you may be lucky enough to get lace-ups as ’tis the season for those kinds back in England.

Earthy brown boots from Clarks

Glory be the winter collection is in stores! Hand-picked material and elastic panels define this new range and with biker and hiker elements this year, expect to don boots with statement buckles, straps and zips and wedged and cleated soles. Blood red and earthy browns dominate as leather, grainy textures and suedes are used for contrast. Check out their older collection too for teal, yellow, maroon and more autumn colours and design.

Playing with style and contrast, you’ll find faux leather body with metallic block heels or shiny patent leather uppers with wooden heels, in this collection. While these quirky style are meant to jazz up your outfit, there is also the usual, and we daresay more popular, flat Chelsea, blocky army and lace-up Chuka boots.

Boots with heels in Zara

Source: Zara

Pretty much outdoing themselves this year, Zara has brought in their latest collection of beauties. We’re talking off the runway lace-up leather high heels with cutout body, slingback adaptations with bows, fringed ankle boots and even kitten heeled over-the-knees! Perfect for the slew of parties you’ll be attending, you can actually pick up a few pairs here and you’ll be sorted for a few years. Plus, dancing in solid boots is much easier than tottering around on sky-highs. We’ve tried both, trust us. We dig their all out biker boot style too. So pop into the store for an all-round boot makeover.

Steve Madden

Chunky, knee high and ideal to pair with minis, Steve Madden’s boots are quintessentially Steve Madden. For the uninitiated, this means lace-up knee high ones, big buckled army ones and even the odd diamante-encrusted ankle pair. If you manage to get your hands on the ones on the international site, then you’ll have more choice though.
