Fashionable lace up military style ankle boot – By Wendy

Black Military Boots

Kizzy has been trying out a pair of really fashionable lace up military style ankle boots.

They have a zip feature to the side of the boot (which is for decorative purposes), a buckle to the back and panel detailing.  The eight hole lace up on the front of the boot allows the shoe to be put on and taken off easily, and the cleated sole has good grip. Kizzy says they are comfortable to wear and she loves how versatile they are.

The style is totally on trend this season, and Kizzy has been teaming the boots with various clothing for different looks.  With skinny jeans and a jumper, they make a practical, casual look for the autumn, or they add a stylish edge to a feminine look, when teamed with a cute dress or skirt for the party season ahead.  They really do look great on my little fashionista and she highly recommends them as an autumn/winter must have!

Knee High Boots, the essential Winter footwear – By Wendy

Womens Knee High Boot A good pair of knee high boots is a must have accessory for the winter season. The Lilley Knee High Black Boot with Faux Shearling from Shoezone is a fashionable boot that is great value for money.

The leather look upper has a silver strap and buckle feature to the bottom.  There is an inner side zip running  along the bottom half of the boot to the foot, which makes it easy to get them on and off.  Another zip runs down the top of the boot for decorative purposes.  The top opens up enough to allow the collar to be turned down to show the inner grey faux fur lining, for a completely different look.  The lining of the boots is so cosy and warm, perfect for the colder weather. The sole has good tread and a small heel, so they will be a safe option when out walking in the winter.

I am really impressed with the style and comfort of these boots and the £24.99 price tag makes them an ideal choice.  With the two different looks in one, they are really versatile too.
