Women's Slouch Boots
Boots come in many different styles though the slouch boot offers a look that never goes out of style. Rising to popularity in the 80s, women's slouch boots became a key fashion item for dressing up a casual look but not compromising on comfort. Characterised by their rolled down appearance, they give a relaxed look without looking shabby.
When purchasing a pair of slouch boots you might want to consider the following:
It's worth considering when you will wear your slouch boots to select the most appropriate material. Leather and especially suede are not great in bad weather so if you are hoping to wear your boots on rainy or snowy days, check that they have been weatherproofed.
Otherwise, leather is great for durability and looks smart. Suede takes more effort to upkeep but has a soft luxurious feel that goes hand in hand with the comfort aesthetic of slouch boots.
If you're purchasing for winter, you may want to look into fur-lined boots or boots with a knitted portion for comfort and warmth.
Slouch boots come in various lengths with the most common being mid-calf length. This gives good coverage to the leg with less restriction than knee high boots.
Ankle slouch boots reveal more allowing you to show off either your legs or some fun hosiery. They are perfect for ease of movement and because more leg is exposed, you'll keep cooler on a warm day or in a busy room on a night out.
Type of Heel
Wedge slouch boots offer a vintage inspired look with the benefit of elongating the legs. The stability of a wedge heel goes perfectly with the comfort of the slouch boot.
With a thin and long heel, stiletto slouch boots may take some practice to walk in but they make up for this by adding elegance to any outfit.
Flat slouch boots are probably the easiest to wear with them being suitable for lots of walking and most activities.
