As we embark once again on the quest for the perfect pair of ankle boots, one particular label hoves into view. Burberry Shoes, which brings Christopher Bailey's unmistakably British style into the footwear arena, is one of the most exciting names of the season, with a wonderfully grown-up selection of shoes and boots with a distinct Burberry heritage.

As essential to the look as the trench coat, these brogues are an iconic autumn staple with a twist: the super-high platform and slimline straps give them a real contemporary edge that's steeped in tradition but in no way staid. We love all the little details on this boot, from the jagged upper edge of the sole to the gold metallic capping on the laces. The style also comes through in more lightweight form in the label's Dafforne Court Shoe in cream; another linchpin piece from the collection.

For those wanting to invest in the iconic Burberry look for A/W 2012, we advice getting in early, if only to maximise the opportunities to wear! The boots are priced at £575 and available from now at My-Wardrobe.
