I've resisted this trend so far - I am always late to the party, especially if the trend is something a bit bright, a bit out of my usual stay safe comfort zone. But I spotted these in Next when I was on my 'No Spend February' plus I've seen Avril at A Life to Style wearing a pair she got in the M&S sale and she is one of my inspirations. So I looked at the options more closely.
These are the Red Mid Point She Boot from Next at £38 so pretty good price. As red boots are a trend rather than a classic I don't think it is worth spending a huge amount. I doubt they will be worn daily. They are not leather but look pretty good and were comfortable despite being a 3.5 and I am a 4, also being a shoe boot they are lighter for going into spring. Next had a few other styles so worth browsing but these were my favorites.
These M&S Kitten Heel Pointed Tow Ankle Boots are £35 and look good but I've not tried them on (yet)! Now reduced to £20 - very few sizes though!
Going up a bit in price are these gorgeous pair from Dune - Osha currently reduced to £85.
My favourites are the Dune ones but I am not sure it is worth spending that much so I may try the Next ones in a 4 and see how I get on.
Have you got a pair of red boots - do you wear them?
Update: Between writing this post and actually publishing it, M&S started their mid-season sale and I picked up their red boots for £17 via the Sparks offers. I wore them last night and they are on my Instagram.
