The walking boot trend hit muddy fields and pavements running this season, making a big pair of boots every man’s autumn/winter must-buy.
Whether you choose tanned leather with contrasting red laces from Hogan, or sneaker-style fat tongues and layered soles from Bernhard Willhelm for Camper, walking boots are the perfect stylish solution for keeping your toes warm and dry. Classic versions stomped their way down the catwalks of Burberry Prorsum, D&G and Paul Smith, while British designer J.W. Anderson prettified his footwear by capping the toes of his boot with dazzling Swarovski crystals. Laced straight or criss-crossed, polished or puddle-splashed, trousers tucked in or rolled-up, get your hands on a pair, tie them tight and take to the streets in style.
