Victorian lace-up boots are *the* boots of the autumn

Not quite sure what constitutes as Victorian lace-up boots? Just imagine whatever Jo March would wear and you've got a pretty good idea of what we're talking about.

Victorian lace-up boots are *the* boots of the autumn

The saying goes that people wait all week for Friday, all year for summer and all their lives for happiness… that might be true of some people, but to be perfectly honest, I think most of us are just waiting for autumn. No one likes having to bid the sun farewell, but the sartorial choices that the fall affords us is always a good distraction from the cold. 

Everyone has pieces that they look forward to rewearing with gusto, but usually it’s our outerwear and our footwear that really help to make a statement. Both are necessary outfit components, but practical doesn’t have to mean démodé. We’ve already compiled some of our favourite trendy transitional coats, but this here listicle is all about the new ‘it’ shoe of the season; Victorian lace-up boots. 

The new trend-du-jour, they actually date back to times gone by – which just proves that investing in a pair will really stand to you. Think laces, pointed toes… perhaps even a small heel too.

We’ve done the groundwork and rounded up some the best Victorian lace-up boots for you below.
