Every winter, it’s our mission to find a footwear solemate to spend the cold, dark season with. A pair that will see you through the madness of festive shopping, trips in the cold weather and just general winter life.

Here are a select few that we at schuh HQ have been sporting almost fulltime this season; our ole’ faithful styles that have been keeping our feet cosy and comfy and still seem to be standing the test of time.

Claire’s schuh Cohen Chelsea Boot –

Claire’s tried and tested Chelsea Boots

Claire – “Does the humble Chelsea boot ever go out of style? Hopefully not; I’ve been wearing these all the time since I got them a couple years ago and they still seem to have some life left in them. Perfect with jeans for everyday wear; they’ve really become my go-to boot.”

Ross’ Dr Martens 1460 Gibson

Smartening up a casual look – the Dr will do that for you.

Ross – “I’ve had these beauties for a couple of years now and they’ve never done me wrong. I’m not one for the tailored look but these babies do smarten up my day to day casual look. I like to wear mine with black skinnies and block coloured tee’s.”

Amy’s schuh Philosophy Boots

Ghetto gold & brightly coloured hair; that’s Amy’s style Philosophy

Amy – “I bought these babes towards the end of last year and I’ve barely taken them off since! They have become an instant staple, they go with all my favourite dresses and they were comfortable from the first wear. Let’s just take a moment to look at that chunky gold zip… I can’t resist a bit of ghetto gold.”

Now, we don’t advocate that you buy shoes for the sole purpose of winter only to dump them when the warmer, lighter days arrive – how cruel? Remember, a schuh is for life. Not just for winter.
