What… The pale urban boot

Why… Need something more original than the traditional combat boot to stomp around town in? Turn convention on its head with light-coloured, durable footwear

The winter boot is a foundational item in any woman's winter wardrobe. We require them to weather the trodden path and keep our toes dry and our spirits high. We've found two examples of stomping boots that go unconventional with not-so-practical colour palettes. Yet what they lack in blending in, they gain in desirability!

Legres’ simple, minimalist footwear will see you through not just this winter, but seasons to come. Launched in September in stealth mode, the brand specialises in subtle, clean minimalism that oozes elegance. Their lace-up flat ankle boots are hand crafted from beige leather with a gripped lug sole that gives comfort.

Bally's Swiss mountain hiking heritage has evolved and today their creations have a  “a strong dose of functionality and modernity”. This season's lace-up hiking boot is made of smooth, off-white leather and as part of the Bally Grunge collection, its technical lacing and brass notches recall hiking boots, and the Vibram Arctic Grip sole render even slipperiest of terrains passable without problem. These boots are made for walking strutting.
