Knowing what to wear on your feet when temperatures drop this low is a sorry task. Low-ankled trainers are out the window; you can forget about anything faux leather and if your shoes are almost at breaking point, you may as well forget about going outside. One of the biggest sartorial conundrums in the modern world is knowing how to stay stylish in the cold. Outerwear is sorted, but here’s what you should be wearing on your feet this season:
This is the shoe that made saw a total resurgence last year and continues to be at the forefront of every stylish gentleman’s wardrobe. Leather is the perfect material to reach for during the winter months; forget about suede and don’t bother with anything that resembles a floppy cotton. Pair these with a pair of black jeans, shirt and a jacket, and you’ll be the envy of every gentleman in the room.
The Brogue Boot
If you’re looking for something a little studier, but still incredibly stylish, look no further than this.

Whether you’re investing for work or for play, these beauties are guaranteed to keep you dry, warm and sartorially on-point all season.
Converse and the like are perfect for the summer months but if you’re looking for something casual but practical for when the temperature decides to drop, try something a little different like this pair from Lanvin. The brand makes some of the coolest trainers around and these are no exception, particularly when styled with dark jeans and a sweatshirt.
