The season to trade in the sandal – RUSSH rounds up our favourite boots for the cooler season

As the winds start to pick up and the air starts to cool down, we feel a change in the air and start to begin our own internal transitions. With winter finally settles in, we start to pack away the memories of summer and roll out our layers, coats and favourite sweaters. Just in time for the months reserved for introspection and hibernation, we share with you our favourite boots to warm the cooler months we have ahead.

At the moment, we are fixated upon knee-high riding boots. Sleek, chic, and timeless, the right riding boot will last you a lifetime. Boots of the knee-high variety have replaced the ankle boot from a sartorial POV this season, but some still linger in the mind, like the below from Gucci and Acne, because you can never go wrong with a classic shape. A really special evening boot comes by way of Bottega Veneta, knee-high and intrecciato woven, and we can count on Hedi Slimane to produce a perfect cowgirl boot for Celine.

For those searching for a boot to carry you through the entirety of winter, we'd reccommend a flat, black leather riding boot, offered her by Dior, Toteme, and Legres. If you are after something of the motorcycle variety, the below from Alexander McQueen look killer with a dress – just saying.

Below, are our favourite boots for the winter ahead.
