There is no season more important for footwear than Winter. The months where were are out and about in extremes of weather our footwear needs to withstand the elements. Investing in a beautiful, perfectly fitting, high quality winter boot is the best investment you will make, as they will carry you from October through to Spring with ease of wear.
Luxury footwear is a purchase that we tend to not always invest in each winter but a boot that is made from the highest quality leather inside and out, hand tainted for a unique finish is definitely an investment in itself.
Melvin and Hamilton produce boots filled with character and soul and give their own personal take on the traditional style boot. Made in Heidelberg, Germany, a romantic city situated on the river Neckar in south-west Germany, Melvin and Hamilton stride themselves on creating beautifully crafted leather footwear collections, finished to perfection and proudly displaying the Melvin and Hamilton stamp.
German quality footwear is exceptional, in terms of all the characteristics that we would all desire in the perfect pair of winter boots and Melvin and Hamilton reflects this high standard through their quality, fit and finish of each boot.My absolute favourite boots from M&H’s Autumn/Winter collection is the XSARA Chelsea boot.
The XSARA comes in three different colours, Venice Black, Venice Mid Blue, and Venice Wood.
The colour style I fell in love with was the Venice wood with elastic navy on sides. The richness of the colour reflects that of a chestnut, rich, warm tones with both a hint of auburn and brown mixed together.
I cannot explain the feeling of quality and workmanship when you hold the boots in your hands other than it is that of luxury and beauty. The Xsara Melvin & Hamilton boot embodies the traditional Chelsea boot style and are made with the highest quality leather inside and out which means comfort and warmth are a given all Winter long.
Because of the classic style of the Xsara they are perfect with any style outfit, from jeans and woolly jumper combos to tights and winter coats outfits. I wanted to bring a magical feel to my style portrayal of the Venice Wood Xsara’s so I layered a long-sleeved linen embroidered dress under a navy military style coat with a heavy fur stole to create my perfect take on the M&H style.
