Lotus have expanded their excellent Stressless range by adding leather ankle boots and leather high-tops to their existing edit of trainers. You might remember that I wrote about the range when it launched just before the first lockdown. Since then, I’ve worn my two leopard print pairs, (one pair is blush-and-leopard, the other is tan-and-leopard), more than any other footwear in my extensive collection. They’re comfortable, versatile and like anything in animal print, an excellent neutral addition to both smart and casual outfits. Take a look at the foot of the post to see some of these outfits.
As always, I only recommend products I wear or use myself. This advertorial is no exception. I chose a pair of black leather biker boots and a pair of navy leather trainers from the new Stressless collection to put to the test.
“Scarlett” biker boots
The boots have a gorgeously warm lining and a heavy cleated sole unit making them a cold weather must-have. Lotus is to the footwear world what Stepper is to the eyewear world; they are unrivalled in comfort. In common with the whole Stressless range, the biker boots benefit from under foot pressure point support and a padded insock both of which really do make for all-day comfort.
I styled them here with a fabulous tiered midi dress, another of my chunky-boot-pretty-dress-combos. (Blog post to follow showing the rest of this fabulous dress). And of course, they work with jeans and skater-style dresses too.
Sheryln navy leather trainers
The navy leather trainers have a leather upper with reptile-print panels. I love the contrasting white sole and the sport-luxe feel it evokes.
I know these will rival my leopard ones in terms on number of wears, not least because I consider navy to be a most versatile neutral, more so than black. But if you disagree, they do come in black too.
