Shopping For: Mid-Heeled Ankle Boots


What I always but only “liked” for the past years, has probably hit its peak as an obsessed hunt this season: Mid-heeled ankle boots.

Daily companion, comfy night-time enhancer, size affecting heel (especially in the interest of those who feel as small as 169cm at times) – ankle boots and their style varieties have possibly stayed in line of the typical fall gear in a very long time.

And still, it wasn’t until this season that I got both of my hands fully on this type of shoe and started checking out any imaginable pair of mid-heeled ankle boots I came across in the past few weeks.

While some prefer the elegant version with a slim heel and a sharp and clean shape, there came particularly the more casual and possibly easier to integrate sister into spotlight.


With a broader, block-like, heel, this ankle boot may seem a little clumsy at first but ever since discovering a friends’ black Topshop version with a block heel and a simple golden buckle on the waist, I started coveting a similar version as well.

Not only that they seem a great workaround of (too) high heels and biker boots during day, they also unite both of these types to some extent.

Sure thing: There are lots and lots of different ankle boots out there these days. And still, I found it hard to narrow my hunt a little more down and see what we really got to “work with”.

That’s why I compiled this list of different types I all found really tempting. The most common thing is, obviously and predictably, that they’re black, comfortable looking and still not too down-dressing for the rest of an everyday-look.
