over-knee-boots.pngShoe trends change so rapidly that it's becoming impossible to wear some styles for more than a year without looking horribly dated. Despite this, certain shoe truths never seem to change, and there has been no trend more enduring than our love for Italian leather. Most of the biggest designer names use it in their collections, as the quality is second-to-none.

That's just one reason to love the current boot collection from British-designed shoe label Classic Italian. Simple and elegant, these styles are sure to be endlessly wearable for as long as they last, which given their quality, will be many years.

If you're looking for a pair of stylish boots to stand the test of time, we recommend investing in one of these three timeless styles: Cara (£195) is a simple black zip-up knee-length boot with a square heel while Rowena (£240) is a little more trend-led with broguing and laces up to the ankle. Clarissa (£225) is a gorgeous conker-brown pull-on boot with subtle stitching and a low heel.
