Essential Winter Footwear Styles To Invest In

Winter Footwear: The 4 Essential Styles To Invest In | The Undone

Finding the perfect winter shoe can be difficult, especially when we’re bombarded with “on trend” styles on the daily. Whether you find yourself sticking to the same boots you've worn for years or feeling unsure about which styles will work best with your wardrobe—we’ve got you covered. 

To make your transition into closed-toe styles a breeze, we've narrowed down the search to four essential styles that everyone should have in their winter shoe collection. From the timeless black boot (an absolute must-have) to the classic white sneaker.


A black boot should last you several seasons, and there is a guide to looking after your boots to help you achieve this, but the first step is ensuring you’re investing in the right pair to begin with. Our advice, be picky.

We like to keep it classic, opting for an ankle boot in either a heeled or chelsea style

The shoe of the season. The flat can be seen everywhere from the runway to street-style, and we’re not complaining. Endlessly versatile it’s a silhouette that you can pair with trousers, skirts and dresses and instantly feel elevated. 

We love to wear ours with a cropped tailored trouser or a midi skirt.

In the world of fashion, trends come and go, but there's one timeless piece that has stood the test of time—the classic white sneaker. With its clean, simple design and versatile nature, there's no wonder it has become a wardrobe essential.

It’s time to put the strappy-heels away, and introduce the closed-toe heel. But don’t fear, this style is just as chic. We love the classic Manolo Blahnik Pump or a sling-back with a kitten heel for versatility and comfort.Opt for a black pair for endless outfit pairing.
