velvet-ankle-boots.jpgVelvet ankle boots are a staple this autumn/winter, so if you've always secretly wanted to channel a 70s glam rock band, now could be your chance! If you're still not convinced by the look, fear not: there are plenty of more subtle ways to get these lustrous tones in your footwear. But we can't help wanting to 'have a go' on these super-tall velvet platforms!

Perched on top of a chunky wedge, the boots are based around a traditional skater-style with lots of laces for a super tight fit. For those ticking off the trends, the purple is just the right tone for those working the jewel-colours look, and you'll soon be working the room with all that additional height!
