This is the perfect time of year to invest in a new pair of ankle boots.  Smart and chic with dresses, pants and skinny jeans or leggings they quite simply work with everything.  This is Autumn’s favourite boot.

It is, however, all too easy to fall in love with a new pair of ankle boots without checking out the essentials.  That there’s cushioning inside.  That the sole will cope with surfaces that may not be smooth pavements.  That you can walk for miles in them. Whether out for a day in town or going away, your new pair of boots fail in their duty unless they can keep you going in comfort.  And so many can’t.

I’m not including traditional sheepskin boots, sneaker boots, wedge boots or flatform boots here as some don’t offer enough support and others have soles that are not flexible enough to enable you to walk properly.

Favourite brands for comfort are Carvela Comfort, Geox and Gabor who all concentrate on modern styles you can walk all day in.  This is particularly important for those don’t want a lot of impact when waking on hard surfaces.  These brands take care of that.
