When it comes to shoes, I’ve come to believe that perfect black ankle boots are an urban myth. I’m talking about the kind of ankle boots that you can wear both for day and night, with a pretty decent heel hight that does elongate the legs but doesn’t kill your toes and a special detail that isn’t too overpowering.
I managed to find the absolute perfect badass biker boots (hello Balenciaga’s!) and got myself the Acne pistol boots that kind of serve the same purpose (thinking of selling those though… I hardly ever wear them!) – but was looking for something with a slightly higher heel. And as it goes, according to The Secret, you send out a wish to the Universe and the Universe responds. And so, I walk in to the H&M showroom (one of my favourite fashion destinations) and spot these perfect ankle boots that are everything I wanted. Really, with the zipper detail, chunky but higher heel, rounded but still elegant toe and straight cut at the top there is nothing I would want to change or add. Don’t you agree?
And since this is something I’ve been looking for forever, I can image you are too. So sharing is caring! On to some practical tips so you might be able to get your hands om ’em too. These are real leather, have a sturdy zipper and yup; they’re as comfortable as they look. If I’m correct these will retail for 99 euros and are available in stores from week 43 (between 20-26 October).
