20 pairs of boots designed with both comfort and style in mind

Yesterday I put on a brand new pair of black suede boots and walked five miles in them in the utmost comfort.  I expected to be comfortable as I’d chosen with care, a heel that wasn’t too high and a brand that I knew, had tried before, and is famous for comfort.  This is due to the cushioning inside, the shape of the foot and the rubber sole.

So if you like pointy toe boots with the highest stiletto heels and leather soles this post is most definitely not for you.  But if you want to buy a pair of boots where (as we all have such different feet) you have the greatest chance of hitting it right straight away, then read on.

Two brands who specialise in boots that are both modern and comfortable are Geox and Gabor.  Geox has the more sophisticated designs on the whole and is a little more expensive.  With Geox you will need to go half a size down as the sizing is generous.  Gabor designs footwear for everyone and is found more easily.

You’ll find the biggest range of Geox at their online store, at Zalando, House of Fraser and John Lewis.   For Gabor check out the collection at Zalando, House of Fraser, Cloggs and John Lewis, so if you really like something that’s not in your size at one store you will probably find it at one of the others….

And the boots that I wore all day yesterday?  These ones.  Black suede knee high boots with a low heel, rubber sole and incredibly comfortable..
