Marks and Spencer has a strong track record of turning everyday basics into cult items, whether it’s a grey jumper or a beige wrap coat. The footwear section, in particular, is one of our go-to places for comfortable but stylish everyday shoes. In fact, the £35 ballet pumps from the Collection range have become a hero piece, and you’ll spot at least one pair at any given moment in our office.
M&S might have only just started teasing out its autumn collection, but there is already one item in the line up that we think might be even more popular than said ballet pumps. Lace-up boots are set to be a key trend this year, and the leather pair from Marks are our favourites we have seen this year. They are only £65, and have a soft almond-shaped toe and a sensible low block heel with laces to match the leather.
We think the fashion crowd will lean towards the ivory pair, but the black and camel versions are classics that will go with almost any winter outfit. Keep scrolling to see how the boots look IRL and shop them before they inevitably sell out.
