marc-jacobs-boots.jpgThere are some styles that you know you'll be happily wearing for as long as they last, and that are worth that little extra expenditure at the time of purchase. Marc by Marc Jacobs' utilitarian, practical approach is evident in these midnight-blue suede boots, and as ever he's used his design magic to make them cute and stylish too.

These shoes will see you right through the year, and will look good on colourful tights, cotton socks or sheer hosiery. They reference the 'dessert boot' look without getting too carried away with it, and the chunky heel makes them nice and comfy to wear, too.
