timberland sale boots Fall boots for every style

Each year, as the leaves turn rusty and the air cold and misty, fall fashions fill boutiques like presents under a Christmas tree. This is my favourite time of the style year.

It’s the season where functionality and style are in balance. Cozy sweaters flatter, patterned tights warm and fitted jackets in leather and tweed ward off the elements.

The wild card in every fall fashion season is boots. The boot du jour is not always fashion forward and functional. Slipper like Uggs are rarely flattering. Thigh high kinky boots are uncomfortable and, let’s be honest, most of us couldn’t get them past our ankles.

This year the cosmos has aligned to put forth not one boot trend but several. It’s the Big Bang of boots. I discovered this when a reader asked where she could find stylish boots for fuller calves and set me out on some research. We set out to find a pair of wide calf friendly boots for our reader, and others appropriate for every type of boot lover:

Wide calves

Designers have wised up to the wide variety of leg shapes and sizes, carefully placing elasticized gussets and adjustable buckles on traditional styles. The Montreal shoe line Ferra Giacomo is a good example. Their winter line includes mid calf boots with full elastic backs and lace ups. Ankle boots are another option for those with shapely calves. The key is to wear ones that are snug around the ankles. Wide or slouchy ankle boots will accentuate wide calves.

Slim calves

Thin women have a tough time with boots that gape or fall down. The return of thigh high go go boots is a fun option if they fit somewhat snug to the body. Slim legs can look more shapely with snug, embellished boots. Buckles and different textures will flatter and personalize fit.

Short: The bad news is that short legs rarely look good in boots that rise higher than the knee. They look like hip waders on a petite woman. Believe me I’ve tried on every pair. The good news is most boot styles this year do flatter short women, with enough heel to elongate but not teeter like stilts. Tall women of all shapes can benefit from the leg flattery without the extra height of heels. Rustic low heeled boots, such as those by Timberland and Frye, also look best on taller women especially paired with slim fit pants or leggings.

Fashion and function

Probably the biggest advancement in fashionable boots is the styles made by trusted lines. My personal favourite is the Indigo line by Clarks. I’ve stood for eight hours outside in their three inch heel ankle boots. Slouchy boots are pushing through this style season. The multi purpose style is often comfortable and warm and works well with anything from jeans to tights. A pair of fashion forward boots can be the centerpiece of an outfit, so venturing on the wild side is beneficial while leggings and tight pants still dominate.

Unlike last season, rubber boots are moving from fashionable to rainy days only. Teens should stick to less than two inch heels (this is much better for body development) and look for comfort and expressing their newfound fashion sense with graphics and colourful designs.

Posture and comfort: Orthopedic style shoe lines have come out with fashion friendly lines this fall. Doc Marten is the veteran of this trend, with high buckled, snake skin, wild coloured and embroidered takes on their classic boot.

The Cobbler also carries two styles of shoes that use negative heel technology: Earth Shoes and MBT (Canadian designer Simon Chang is a big fan). The soles are thicker than the heels, propelling the wearer’s heel downward as if walking in sand. Some of the claimed benefits are better posture, reduced stress and increased calories burned. Both lines have stepped up their appeal and look more ready to wear than medical aid. Earth has a flattering soft leather ankle boot and MBT has a black leather and silver buckle mid calf boot that barely shows the thick sole. Special thanks: Social media can have real life benefits, I learned this week with a call for fashion models on Twitter. I’d like to thank Jill Heggie, Fawn Beckwith and Kirsten Loran for their time and flair.
