How to Find Your Perfect Boots

We all play favourites with certain fashion items. Be it a worn-in leather biker jacket or carry-everywhere bag, we guarantee that every season there will be something on repeat. For Kendall Jenner, that something is KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Strut' ankle boots. And when we say on repeat, we basically mean living in them. First seen on the supermodel in February at Paris Fashion Week, there have been countless sightings since – 11 to be precise. And that’s just the times she was actually papped. Such is the selling power of Ms Jenner, they sold out in record time but fear not, we’ve restocked them for the new season. The white hue will score big autumn style points while the cool Perspex block heel makes them comfy enough to wear 24/7 – as Kendall knows all too well.

So, Kendall’s found her perfect boot, now it’s time to find yours. As summer draws to a close and September is in sight, boots are firmly back on our fashion radar – stay tuned for an exciting boot announcement next week – and, if you’re thinking about investing in a new pair, we’re here to help. Seriously, with over 300 styles on offer, we know what’s what when it comes to AW17’s coolest boots, whether you’re in the market for ankle boots, knee-high boots or over-the-knee boots.

From classic and practical to high-fashion, our boot collection runs the gamut of styles, trends and occasions. Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Slow' is a best-seller for good reason – luxe brogue detailing puts a fresh spin on the classic chelsea boot, and they’ll take you from work to weekend. Ditto Carvela Kurt Geiger 'Waffle'; a riding boot with a glossy gold horsebit trim. After something a little more statement-making? With its pearl buckle detail Kurt Geiger London’s 'Sparky' is quickly becoming a fashion pack favourite. Speaking of details, we’re all about them when it comes from boots, from trend-ticking adornments to functional must-haves like flexible outsoles and elastic back panels for maximised stretch and comfort.

Just as with clothes, you need to think about what boots will suit your body shape to find the perfect fit. It goes without saying that petites can benefit from the boost of a heel and ankle boots will give the illusion of longer legs. Tall ladies, you’re in luck. Flats, mid heels, knee-highs and OTK’s will all look great. Heeled boots are a must for showing off gym-honed calves, while over-the-knee boots are great at giving slender legs a shapely silhouette.

On the menswear front, the classic Chelsea reigns supreme for the new season. Crafted from soft supple suede with a clipped chisel toe, 'Francis' comes in black or tan and 'Frederick' in grey brown or navy, meaning there’s a pair to wear with any look. Both strike the perfect balance between the Chelsea’s signature rock and roll cool and smart sensibility. 'Syd' offers a more casual take on the classic Chelsea boot thanks to a crepe sole. Wear with chinos and a t-shirt now, denim, a knit and overcoat when the weather turns.

Now you’ve got the boot lowdown, it’s time to find a pair that you won’t want to take off…
