Autumn is officially upon us. The weather is changing and it’s time to pack away the flip-flops and instead get yourself a new sturdy pair of boots to battle the elements. Here at Mainline Menswear, we love trainers, but you can’t rely on them all season and it’s always nice to upgrade your outfits. This is where boots come into play. Stylish and sensible, boots are a great alternative when the weather is any less than perfect.
To help you prep we looked through our collection and found our top 4 styles of boots to grab this year and how you should be wearing them (spoiler: on your feet).
Everyone knows about the shoe that helped start Timberland’s journey over 40 years’ ago: the iconic 6-inch boot. These timeless classics are popular for a reason; Timberland boots are durable, sturdy and built to last. Everyone has a pair of 6-inch boots. Which is why we think you should stand out from the crowd with a slightly different silhouette: Timberland Brooklyn City Mid Boots. With the Timberland wrapping around the heels, these boots are loud, proud and make a refreshing change from the 6-inch. Featuring premium waterproof leather and reliable gripping power from the honey lug soles.
It is widely understood that Timberlands look better when worn looser, but it doesn’t mean that you have to fall out of your boots with every step. These boots look perfect with a pair of rolled-up jeans and your favourite checked shirt.
Chelsea boots are a smarter option for your feet. The Oliver Sweeney London Burrows Chelsea Boots is a smart alternative for those cold, Autumnal days. With its classic Chelsea boot shape and distinctive gusset, the colourful play on this classic boot ensures that it’ll be the most modern boot you own.
Match your Chelsea boots with a suit for a classic look, or make things more casual with a leather jacket and skinny jeans for those weekend drinks.
