The best boots for winter

Font Size:

While high heels vs flats may be divisive, boots bring us together as the unanimous must-have. An essential item to own for winter, this season they are soaring to new heights.

Whether you prefer ankle, calf or knee-length, here’s our pick of what to wear when it comes to each height. 


Arguably the easiest style to wear, make sure you choose a pair with a good heel in which you can run around. 

Sportsgirl, Ike Vintage Mid Heel Boot, Tan, $89.95


Rubi Shoes, Lloyd Stud Boot, $59.95



The key to pulling off calf high boots is to ensure they don’t cut you off. Try them on with stockings and pants and with a bare leg so you’re confident they flatter your legs and don’t make you look shorter or stockier than your natural build. 

Glassons, Back Zip Boot, Black, $69.99

Wittner, Maison Boot, Putty Suede, $229.95



The hardest height to pull off, the main focus here should be on finding a pair that does not stop abruptly under the kneecap, as this again has the potential to cut you off and can look rather unflattering. Aim for a pair that sit slightly below the knee or, for the brave hearted, just above. 

Wittner, Buckley Boot, Black Suede, $199.95

Spurr, Leo Boots, Black, $69.95
