Wowcher vs Oucher: Winter Footwear



Boots are essential in this winter weather, but with all that rain and potential for snow, splashing out on a fancy pair may not be the greatest idea. While designer labels set the trends, we know that they’re certainly not the be all and end all of fashion – so with a Santa-style sack full of bargain wintery treats for your feet, today’s blog is designed with the sole purpose of showing you how we deliver style at a fraction of the price! With a variety of different trends on offer, we invite you to buckle, lace and fasten up as we walk you through a selection of the most boot-iful winter footwear trends…

Round 1: Ankle boots


A staple this season, ankle boots will see you right through from autumn to spring and are perfect whether worn at work, play or during the day. From red to animal print and sparkly to peep toe, we’ve seen them all – but if, like us, you can’t afford them all, we think a simple and elegant black pair is your safest bet for maximum wear!

Perfect with just about anything, these black platform Chelsea boots are a sure-fire winner. The chunky heel is bang on-trend and the height is perfect for giving shorter girls a little lift. Similar to the Kurt Geiger ankle boots, we just love the height, gold zip and buckle detailing.

If its everyday flats you’re looking for then these ankle Chelsea boots will certainly do the job. They come in six different styles, including faux suede and faux croc skin, which adds a fabulously luxurious touch – priced at just £14, they’re boot-ilicious!

Round 2: Sheepskin boots

Always a hit for their comfort and warmth, sheepskin boots are an easy way to keep cosy this winter. These super cool and versatile Australian Sheepskin Zippyboots can transform into four different looks, featuring a zip-off tall section and foldable tops. Alternatively, get a pair of these sheepskin and merino wool boots in one of six fabulous colours, which are perfect for tucking in jeans and can be enjoyed for a fraction of the price of luxury brand UGG®.

If your budget doesn’t stretch that far then don’t worry, as we have great faux fur options too. These winter ankle boots feature a cute buckle detail and come in gorgeous teal, and these simple fleece-lined beauties are the cheapest of the bunch at just £8. Baa-gain!

Round 3: Riding boots
A classic style that will forever be in fashion, the riding boot is a must-have that could potentially yield years of wear, providing you give them plenty of care and attention. With lots of different styles kicking about, you could easily grab a slice of this elegant look that’s a favourite of our glamorous Duchess of Cambridge.

Feast your eyes on these beautiful leather riding boots, for example – not dissimilar to those by fashion footwear favourite, Dune, they come in high quality genuine black or brown leather that will weather well and stay solid for years to come. Fantastic for maintaining a snug fit around the calf, they have an elasticated back that also provides breathing room for extra give, stretch and comfort. We think these boots are great, neigh, gorgeous!

Final round: the best of the rest!
A massive trend this year, the thigh-high boot is sexy, daring and fabulous, and we wouldn’t be doing our job right if we didn’t offer you a pair to get you strutting your stuff with the likes of the Kardashians, Rita Ora and Beyoncé!

A slightly more wearable option to the dominatrix-style celebrity showstoppers, these over the knee boots are the perfect statement shoe for the Christmas party season. Wear with a dress or skirt and show off those pins in style!

Forget those Wowcher vs Oucher comparisons for a minute, because we have the real deal with these winter warmers. From fashion brand Rocket Dog, these suede boots are lined with faux fur and come in five neutral colours. The perfect option for the cold winter weather, these casual boots are just right paired with jeans and a jumper on a blustery day. Long-lasting wear and toasty toes? Brilliant!

Finally, if we haven’t quite soled you our theory that our boots can hold their own against high-end retailers, maybe our final pair can seal the deal! Keeping warm is the aim of the coming months, and these 2-in-1 winter boots won’t disappoint! Made from genuine leather and lined with fluffy faux fur, they’re super cosy with sturdy ridged soles that are ideal for wet wintery weather and snowy, slippery streets. “Sold! To the thrifty, fashion-forward miss looking fabulous at the back there!”
