Classic

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it a million times more, a basic combat boot is the winter essential that literally everyone needs. Suede or leather, black or brown, it doesn’t matter. They’re the style that goes with everything. Something warm, comfy and fashionable anyone can simply slip on and head straight out the door. Whether you’re going on a night out, going to work or even adventuring the outdoors, these boots are made for wear and tear, and the best part is, the more thrashed they get, the better they look.

If you don’t already have a pair of basic combat boots in your wardrobe, first of all, what are you doing? Second of all, we’ve got you covered. We’ve done the hard research for you, and picked a few of our favourites to get you started. It’s time to reboot your winter look.

Patterned

For those of you who aren’t afraid of a little colour or texture, printed combat boots are the staple boot that will turn a basic or bland outfit into a high fashion statement look in seconds. They effortlessly add flair and excitement to your look, and your day, because who doesn’t feel better about their day when they’re wearing a bomb outfit.

It’s so easy to slip into monochrome during the winter months, but if you ask us, bold colours and prints are the ultimate boss mood for winter. Nothing says, “I’m here and I want you to know about it” more than a bright statement piece. And why shouldn’t that statement piece be your shoes? It’s the easiest way to spruce up a winter outfit and make your cold, rainy days that much more enjoyable.

Platform

If you’ve been deterred from combat boots because you need a little bit of extra help in the height department, platforms will be your saving grace. You get the extra height without putting yourself through the pain of heels all day long, just slide on a pair of these combat boots and you’re ready to go. Comfort, style AND the extra height to boot.

Platforms aren’t just for the short girls either, they make every outfit look just that little bit edgier. These boots are for anyone and everyone who wants to grunge up their outfits and add a little bit of extra height while doing it.

You’d be amazed how much extra confidence you get in a pair of killer platform combat boots. You don’t walk into a room, you strut. Elevate your winter wardrobe with a staple platform combat boot, we promise you won’t regret it.
