Fifteen new takes on the classic black boot (to rival all other black boots)

You might have heard (and seen on your news feeds) that brown boots are the new black ones. In varying shades of chocolate, beige and biscuit, brown is quickly overshadowing millennial pink as the in-demand colour of the year. But if classic footwear is your thing, don’t fret. Our wardrobes go through a rigorous change from season-to-season but one thing that remains constant is black the ankle boot. It’s a wardrobe cornerstone; a true hero for modern women. Ideal for cool autumn evenings and sharp, frosty mornings, they provide your feet with style and comfort. So . if you’re ready for a black boot update, here are fifteen pairs to try on for size. Brown will come and go, but a true classic black boot will long outlive a fast trend.
