Today’s no footwear face-off, oh no – this bootie deserves a post all to himself. Introducing the Almira.
Like you need reminding, sheepskin will be everywhere come winter – lining your boots, lining your jackets, and lining your boots some more – which might explain why I’ve gone a bit giddy over the Almira. In a sumptuous brown suede with a cosy sheepskin trim and rustic leather stitch detailing woven along its sides, this is my kind of boot. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate a darn good stiletto when I see one, but I prefer my heels a little chunkier, and the Almira’s got just the kind of fat wooden heel I long for. Low enough to wear during the day but high enough to ooze a bit of cool-girl glamour, I might have just found my favourite winter boot (though I wish I hadn’t, almost as much as purse). With jeans, khaki trousers or a sheer midi dress – hell, with my pyjamas if needs must – I want to wear the Almira all winter long; it’s the perfect new-season update to a basic brown boot.
Yeah, ok, it might not have had competition of any kind, but give it competition of the toughest kind and I reckon old Almira would still come out trumps.
