'Tis the season for boots shopping, and after scrolling through basically all of Instagram and all the best street style looks recently, we think we've got a pretty good grasp here at Who What Wear UK of what the biggest boot trends will be and which styles are set to be iconic for 2019. One that appears very high on the list is obviously chunky hiking boots. This is a style that works harder than any this winter, making your summer dresses cold-weather appropriate as well as being the perfect accompaniment for weekend walks with knits, jeans and fluffy coat.
Of all the places we thought we'd find the perfect hiking boot, forgive us but M&S was not one of them. The high-street favourite never disappoints when it comes to classics, especially cashmere and coats, but it's not always the first place we turn to for trend-led pieces. The new boots launch, though, has absolutely proven us wrong and these black leather hiking boots we keep seeing on Instagram this week are possibly our favourite style of the season so far. They come road-tested by our very own shopping editor Joy Montgomery, who can attest to the fact that not only do they look great but they're so comfortable as well.
Keep scrolling to see who's been wearing them with what outfits recently and to shop this style and more from M&S's amazing boots collection.
