The Best Leather Boots To Look Out For This Season

A new season is fast approaching and in the UK we are entering the final weeks of lockdown. A cause for celebration for most, which means boots will quickly become a necessity again for menswear - even if it is for a quick pop to the shops. A great pair of Boots offers comfort and support as the weather remains unpredictable, and the team at Walk London HQ have put together a list of some of our Best Leather Boots that you can get your hands upon over the next couple of weeks.

We always recommend boots with 100% leather uppers for a long term investment as the natural material adapts to the shape of your foot with wear. We have highlighted a mixture of weather ready boots below; both with heavier soles for strong wear and sleeker summer models to look forward to as the weather starts to improve.

Chelsea Boots

Walk London Florence Chelsea Boot

A firm favourite is a good pair of Leather Chelsea boots - found both underneath office desks and under pub tables. Despite our chunkier sole versions (such as Sean or Slick) working all-year round, the team have opted to highlight the sleeker, more traditional style of Florence.

Easily paired up with a suit or with your everyday denim, the style is featured in both Black and Brown leathers this season. Both utilize uppers that boast a slightly grained texture, that in our opinion offers the perfect blend between formal and casual.

Hiking Boots

Walk London Sean Low Hiking Boot

Not just for the great outdoors anymore, a good pair of Hiking Boots is a must as we are seeing a move towards more causal trends this year. Fit for wear right up to high summer, our top pick is the best selling Sean Low Hiking Boot.

Opting to highlight the black leather version, for stylistic purposes, the model combines a durable cleated sole unit with a grained textured leather upper which only get's better with age. The contrast red lacing and hiking details offers a focal point and this style has become an instant classic within our collection due to it's versatility as both a practical and fashion boot.

Lace Up Boots

Walk London Wolf Lace Up Boot in Brown LeatherAnother staple that is worth having in year round rotation, is a good pair of Leather Lace Up Boots which are certainly not to be underestimated for all year round wear. Best for wear outside of high summer - as per our Hiking Boots selection - there was only ever one selection on our teams mind...Wolf!

The mainstay of our seasonal collections over the years, this brown version remains an easy turn to with casual leather going hand in hand with the handmade sole unit . With a herringbone textile pull adding a rugged touch, the Wolf Lace Up boot is the go-to choice for a casual boot. 

Cuban Boots

Walk London Hoxton Hex Cuban Heel Boot

After years out of the limelight, Cuban Heels have entered the mainstream menswear circuit once again over the past year. Mainly associated with indie/rock, the high heeled silhouette has been a key focus of our collection for several seasons portrayed through the mid-height Hoxton Boot series. 

Rather than opting for an easy Black Leather feature, the team have gone for the unique high fashion look of the Hoxton Hex Emboss Boot. A statement piece within it's own right, this version boasts a full body reptile skin leather that compliments the upper pattern.

Chukka Boots

Walk London Danny Chukka Boot

The last feature on this list - and for those in the know, another silhouette with military connotations - you would be hard pressed to find another boot that is more synonymous with the British Fashion scene than a Chukka Boot. 

The chukka boot has a low cut shape and our version has a three eye fastening and comforting crepe sole underfoot. The key chukka to look out for this season is the black version of the Danny Chukka Boot. With traditional suede stripped away, the upper utilizes a grained leather which offers more versatility and can be worn dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
