It’s nearly Valentines day and for us that is merely another excuse to whip out our Spanish boots and go on an adventure through the countryside! A bouquet of red roses wouldn’t go amiss, don’t get us wrong as nothing says love better than nature - but we prefer to be out in the brink of it! As it’s February we’re still expecting cold, wintery days full of frost and darker skies, but wrapped up snuggly in one of Liberty Freedom’s tweed jackets and a poncho scarf surrounded by loved ones makes it all worth it!
Here at the Spanish Boot Company, we have an array of beautiful country boots to cover all your trekking, hiking, climbing, riding and walking needs - but sometimes deciding what sort of boots to go for is difficult when there’s so much choice! So we’ve narrowed it down to our five February favourites, matching the boot to your Valentine’s activity…
Horse riding? Playing a spot of Polo? Or even if you just like that rich auburn leather, our Polo boots are created with a Good-year welted sole, fashioned with a full length front zip, lined in Spanish leather and produced in Valverde del Camino. With the heritage and quality of our authentic Spanish boots, they are durable, weather resilient (if waxed and maintained) and absolutely gorgeous - available in tan and black leather.
Another great point to mention is that these beauties are in fact unisex - so you and your partner can venture out together in a matching pair on your special day!
2. The Suede Boots
Perfect for a stroll into town or through the local park, these stunning trend-led suede boots will turn heads with their vibrancy and luxury texture. Great for indoors and outdoors, our suede boots are created in a tall design to elongate the legs and add elegance! These knee highs are available in a rainbow of colours, but our dark olive green is one of our favourites; replicating the earthy tones in our natural environment.
3. The Ankle Boots
These colourful chameleons are available in stone, red, navy, green, cobalt, black and camel - a shade to pair with every outfit imaginable! In their diverse short cut format, the ankle boot is an everyday wardrobe necessity that will never go out of style. With a lavish suede finish and an elasticated gusset, our Chelsea boots are comfortable, fashionable and irresistibly charming for your Valentine’s date! Understated and wearable with skinny jeans to a leather skirt, the ankle boot is undeniably a classic equestrian favourite.
4. The Long Tassel Boots
For something different, opt for the long hassled country boot. With stunning craftsmanship and cut out detailing adorning the upper leg, these leather statements will no doubt be the topic of conversation! Accompanied with a detachable fringed tassel which can be trimmed to the length you desire, these boots have the wow factor along with the durable and functional qualities of all our other footwear.
As well as being a lovely addition to your romance filled day, these make great footwear for festivals in the summer periods.
Ok, we would be foolish to think we could compile this list without including the boot that we founded our company on! The Spanish Riding boot is everything you want from sturdy, beautiful, handcrafted, authentic footwear. With stylish elements such as the embossed detailing, a buckle and a zip tassel, these incredibly versatile boots have treaded Good-year rubber soles to ensure comfort and grip when venturing over rocky terrains!
All our boots can be made to measure and optional features, meaning your boots (whichever you finally decide to choose!) can be tailored uniquely to your taste!
