British weather is unpredictable. So it’s always best to expect the unexpected, and be mindful when choosing your shoes.
January is a great time to invest in comfortable and sturdy footwear, to protect against the tempremental elements in the coming months.
Flimsy shoes are a no-go when it comes to rain, icy winds and bitter snow flurries. Instead, durability is key. Steer clear of suede-like fabrics when choosing practical winter shoes,
instead opt for heavy-duty leathers and more forgiving materials.
So now is the time to snap up some stylish yet substantial winter footwear, to see you through into spring, and to have in your wardrobe when the colder months hit again later this year.
