Like clockwork, the world continues to spin out in its cycles and here we are, finding ourselves drawing closer to the hours of hibernation. Time for sun kissed skin to be replaced by pale slumber and dewy nights to be taken over by balmy mornings tucked in. We finally trade in our flimsy summer sandals for something more aligned in armoury whether that be winter loafers, closed toe sandals or in this case, a good knee high boot. As you may have already noticed, at RUSSH, we get excited about the thought of a season of layers and start our winter round-ups, already sharing what each and every editor is coveting this Autumn to our favourites in knitwear and leather.
When it comes to coveting the perfect boot, it can be either easy or tricky. It seems with boots - we are never short of opportunities. However, whether you go ankle, mid-calf, knee high or thigh high, like a perfect pair of jeans, one should allocate a good amount of time and care and the upmost consideration. With endless windows of opportunities from Nappa leather, metallic calfskins to the studded and embellished, like any other item that you hope will stay with you forever, it should remain timeless in its own expression.
Maybe it's strictly personal, but I have come to think that the time of frivolous buying is over. At this point in time, whatever you buy, buy it with the hope that you will love it and it will last you forever. No matter what price point, whether we are talking high or low, any piece you bring home should be one that is well made, seasonless and transitional - able to move as you move and grow as you grow. We are in the time, after all, where we really need to care and become more mindful, a time to only invest in the truly timeless.
So here at RUSSH, we share with you just a few of our favourites - some to seriously consider or to seriously aspire - our top 10 favourite knee high boots to warm you and help you stride through this winter.
