The worker boot
No list of boot recommendations is complete without some Timberlands. The original yellow boot has a timeless look, simplicity and is instantly recognizable. These classic 6-inch waterproof boots are a winter staple with killer waterproof seams and a leather upper. Pair with cargos and jeans for a weekend look or wear with black chinos to smarten the overall look. This is an investment boot that will last for years as they never go out of style.
The rain boot
What’s not to love about a rainboot? Everyone needs a pair at some point when it’s pouring outside. While you may not wear them all the time, it’s good to have a classic knee length pair in the shoe cupboard for those impromptu country strolls. Don’t forget to layer up with chunky socks to keep feet warm and comfortable and don’t be too strict on size as if you buy too small, you’ll more likely get blisters.
