Men’s ankle boots: inspired by the spirit of mountain trekking, but also made to show off around town
The look of these men’s ankle boots brings to mind images of the mountains. But major footwear designers have remade this type of boot into something just right for the city and even perfect for the office. Men’s ankle boots from the FW15/16 collection are inspired by mountain trekking but are still streamlined, due to the continually more advanced, higher performing materials that go into them. These boots are the unique sign of an intrepid man who likes to have his adventures in the urban jungle.
3 rules for wearing ankle boots to the office
1) To start, the ankle boats should be spotlessly clean. Any dust or dirt should be removed using a brush made for that purpose. The boots should be treated with shoe crème and other products made for their material. Take as good a care of your ankle boots as you would your beloved friend on four wheels.
2) Pay attention to your trouser hem. It should just touch the upper part of the boot, or better yet, fall just at the point where your instep meets your ankle.
3) Take extreme care in choosing socks. Avoid white ones at all costs. When you cross your legs in men’s ankle boots, you get a glimpse of your socks… so choose coloured ones, like those that are in-style this winter season. They’re perfect when combined with a tie or maybe a wool sweater or pocket square. Elegance is in the details …
