With just six weeks to go until the big day, the Christmas shopping panic has officially set in (unless you’re one of those insanely organised people who finished theirs in September). Whichever shopping camp you belong to, once you’ve got the friends and family gifts nailed, it’s time to think about what you want for Christmas. We like to think of Christmas as the perfect opportunity to get your hands on the investment boots you’ve been coveting all season, so we’ve rounded up the styles that should be right at the top of your list. All you have to do is pick your favourite then forward this link to whoever’s going to be treating you. Easy.
The Classic Ankle Boots
Ankle boots have transcended winter wardrobes to become a cult style you can wear year-round. In our opinion, that makes it perfectly acceptable to have multiple pairs in your arsenal. Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Stop' takes the black ankle boot to the next level, fusing Chelsea boot styling with standout studs and a comfortably cool block heel. If flat boots are your thing, Kurt Geiger London’s 'Dalby' is the last word in luxury. Crafted from the richest smooth leather, Dalby’s minimalist looks will lend a premium feel to even the simplest of outfits. For an on-trend touch that won’t date, the military-inspired studs on Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Soldier' boots elevate this easy to wear style.
The Statement OTK Boots
While an essential addition to any boot collection, over-the-knee boots are undoubtedly an investment buy. If you want to embrace the OTK’s inherently sexy aesthetic, it’s all about Kurt Geiger London’s 'Vita'. Loved by supermodels Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman, the mid-thigh grazing height, pin-thin heel and back split ensure they’ll turn heads. Offering a totally different take on the OTK silhouette is Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Wilson'. A combination of plush suede and a comfortable block heel create an elegant boot that you can truly wear day or night, for seasons to come.
The On-Trend Slouch Boots
With the likes of Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent sending slouch boots (coming soon) down the AW17 catwalks, it was only a matter of time before the trend exploded. Despite being an 80s throwback, the style feels super-fresh, and the mid-calf height means they will be perfect for spring too. Millie Mackintosh has been spotted in Carvela Kurt Geiger’s stiletto heeled 'Special', while influencers Laura Fantacci, Florrie Thomas and Silvia Bartabac have all sported 'Scrunch'. It’s a tough call, we know.
The Cool Biker Boots
No boot offers cool factor and comfort quite like the biker. Their ability to amp up an off-duty jeans and jumper combo is unrivalled, especially when you add in ante-upping details like studded straps, patent toe caps, and faux fur trims. Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Swish' has an endless list of fashion pack fans, and taps into this season’s pearl trend, while Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Sly' will keep you super cosy. For a more feminine take on the biker boot, Kurt Geiger London’s 'Daze', with its bow detail and patent trim is the way to go.
