Help Deciding What Winter Boots To Buy?
It is getting closer and closer to winter and I definitely need to buy footwear for the occasion. I have a pair of high tops, a pair of brogue shoes, plimsolls and a pair of plain white trainers, however this collection of footwear will not be kind during the freezing months ahead.
I would like you guys to suggest some boots that both look stylish and practical for winter. Price range up to £100.
Something similar to these: Tan Duck Boots - Boots - Shoes - TOPMAN

There's something about Topman making work boots I don't understand; the quintessential hard wearing shoe, cheapened and flimsied up for the high street. There doesn't seem to be any point.
Thing is £100 is what I'd call the sensible minimum for a boot; I'm a hypocrite here because I've got a cheapass pair of Topman deck boots I wear everywhere but I wouldn't recommend it.
If £100 is your maximum I suggest you check out discounted places like the Asos clearance/outlet and the Allsaints Archive.
Allsaints are pretty well made, and if you like the distressed, vintage look, which many do, they'll be perfect for you. The archive has big discounts. Asos has a wide variety - but it's hard to find your size. Key styles this season are definitely brogue boots and work boots - the military boot still has a strong presence but hey, don't we all want to be a little ahead of the curve? If you let us know your shoe size I'm sure a fellow or two would be able to pick out a specific product.

Slightly over your 100 quid budget but they will certainly keep your feet warm and won't fall apart a month after buying them.

Well I found these, they look nice to me and I am looking for a tan leather look I guess. However I know loads of people are against timberlands because they have become common. I do feel they are still good quality and value for money at £75. Let me know what you guys think. I am size 11 for anyone who cares.

In my opinion, the best winter boots are from English shoemaker, Clarks. They are timelessly fashionable, high quality, and very comfortable.
