Currently Craving: Winter shoes

winter shoes, black boots

I’m usually not a winter person and I think because of that I’m quite fussy about winter clothes. Jokes not fussy more unimpressed – in fairness it’s probably my mood from that cold Joburg chill. But this year I’ve found myself a bit winter shoe crazy. Maybe it’s just general shoe crazy. Or maybe it’s just my current mission to expand my ankle boot collection. Either way I spent a good chunk of my weekend looking online at winter shoes because I’m obviously going to need to buy a pair (or two) soon.

winter shoes So I’ve put together 10 of my currently craving list of winter shoes for 2015! A lot of them are leather because uhhh leather is the best… but there are a couple of synthetic options which are also more affordable. Most of the winter shoes I’ve chosen are ankle boots but a few masculine shoes came creeping in. I’m currently lusting a lot on a more sturdy version of a moccasin shoe. They’re totally ideal for winter when you’re over boots but ballet pumps just aren’t cutting it. Plus there’s something about a feminine blouse, pants and loafers that Alexa Chung pulls off so well – and who wouldn’t want their winter wardrobe inspired by Alexa?!
