When Jeanne Damas came into our office last month wearing a pair of brown suede heeled ankle boots, they instantly became the shoes that everyone in our office wanted. I was so into brown boots that I bought two very similar pairs from the French label Sézane. As you might have worked out by now, brown suede ankle boots are a Parisian go-to and are the French equivalent of black flat Chelsea boots. Brown is traditionally seen as a very tricky colour to wear. However the "awkward" colour is one of the key shades for the season, and brown-on-brown styling has been embraced by the Instagram set. Whether you're looking for classic heeled brown boots just like Jeanne's or something a little more out of the ordinary, we have trawled the internet to find you the best brown boots out there. And be warned: You might end up buying more than one pair just like me.
