We all love a good spoil and sometimes retail therapy helps, so why not do it with a guilt-free mind? You don’t have to put a dent in your wallet by digging deep and spending thousands of rands on a pair of boots for the new season – you can start being savvy, and we’re here to help. Our fashion team has found 20 different styles of ankle boots under R400 just for you!
Block Heel Boots
Comfort is key, and that is why we love block heels. There are so many options to choose from – geometric shaped heels, textured heels and even some round shaped heels! Take advantage of the fact that these boots will never go out of season so you can adapt them for any type of weather.
If a wide boot isn’t your style, try something more fitted around the ankle. Find a fully elasticated sock boot or one with a stretchable piece. Our favourite is the tie up sock boot, because you can alter how tight or loose it fits your ankle.
Suede and leather boots are basic must-haves, because of their versatility and longevity. Most of these boots have a natural looking heel which gives off an earthy/cowgirl kind of feel to your look, and you can edge it up by pairing it with a leather or studded jacket.
The lower the heel, the more comfortable, right? If you do however decide to go for a stiletto, find one that has a strong support structure – that way your feet won’t feel like it’s about to break down halfway through the day! Kitten heel low ankle boots look great with rolled up jeans while higher boots need a midi skirt or dress to show off your kicks.
