Winter means we can finally trade in our open-toed shoes for boots, from ankle-height to thigh-high, but my favourite remains the classic knee-high.
These sturdy stompers have been trendy since ancient times with tribes of Native Americans, though back then they were predominantly worn for warmth and the rugged travelling conditions, rather than style.
These days there are all kinds of styles and ways to wear them for distinct winter looks from modern vintage to classic riding.
Here are four stunners:
