These (black) boots were made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do… through whatever the Irish elements throw at us this autumn.
We all know that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but the months preceding the so-called “silly season” are pretty great too. Coloured leaves, cosy jumpers and a return of the humble black boot; what’s not to love about that?!
For many, autumn dressing is when they feel their true sartorial selves. After a summer of dousing ourselves in fake tan and pretending it’s warm enough to wear flowing white linen dresses, we’re finally ready to succumb and break out the tights again. But before we start investing in knitwear and other autumnal staples, a pair of good black boots is key.
Doc Martens are a divil to break in but they’ve been my best purchase to date. Find yourself a good pair and they’ll last you a lifetime if you’re lucky.
We’ve done the groundwork (no pun intended) and rounded up some of our favourites. Shop our edit of black boots below.
