WORDS BY FLORENCE TROTT
Mock-crock, candy colours and neutral shades – our favourite boots for spring.

The cornerstone of every well considered shoe wardrobe, perfectly seasonal boots make getting dressed easy. This year, the need to socialise al fresco means there’s more demand for springtime boots than ever before. No-one wants cold toes when they’re sipping aperols at sundown. We’ve all grown accustomed to comfort in the last year or so. That, combined with the popularity of lug soled boots, means it’s going to be hard to pry us out of our trusted Bottega Venetas. But spring trends don’t begin and end with chunky rubber soles. This season, look out for elegantly stylised silhouettes, luxe textures and fresh shades of green to make your wardrobe really go. Spring up with Wandler, Jimmy Choo and Paris Texas.
In nature, spring is a season of growth. Buds bloom, the trees turn green – and we suggest your wardrobe does too. The fash pack can’t get enough green for SS21. Gentler than our trusted black boots, but just as versatile – we’re loving Bottega Veneta’s lime green lug update and Jimmy Choo’s verdant suede. Alternatively, go full country girl in Ganni’s wellington-inspired boots. Perfect for changeable spring weather, paired with a cotton dress or your favourite jeans.

Paris Texas has become a byword for sass. The Italian label’s mock croc boots are as luxurious as they are playful. Add texture and a touch of decadence to your spring look with buttery soft reptilian-look leather by Jimmy Choo, By Far and Alexandre Vauthier.
