Readers may recall my post, and subsequent article on Mensflair.com, that laid bare my collection of shoes. One visitor to this blog mentioned that my possession of only one pair of boots was rather disappointing. I must admit that I acknowledged this myself. In my search for co-respondents, Berluti-a-likes and 'different' looking shoes in a variety of tones, I had forgotten the comforts and the reliable beauty of a good pair of boots. A brown pair from Zara, that have lasted four years, have served me well but I had recently resolved to look for a black pair in the sales.
I thought I had failed - nowhere seemed to stock the kind of boots I was looking for. Until I stumbled into Zara to check the dregs of the sale and found these splendid boots for £40. While certainly not the Loake boots I had been looking at, these were £120 cheaper and fit for purpose.
