A contemporary take on the classic cowboy boot, Acne’s Pistol ankle boots, is a wardrobe staple regardless of season. With a clean leather finish, curved heel and almond toe, these Swedish designer boots are made for walking. Available from all leading fashion stores, rrp £380. Available in different colours and there’s also an option with fur lining to keep feet warm in the colder months, with more colour options such as the beautiful vanilla. Just to add to the confusion. But I’ll aim for a classic pair of pistol boots. Only problem is, what colour do one choose?

I actually discovered this brand in a second hand store in London. I noted down the brand, thought about it over night and went back the next day to buy the pair -but it had already been snapped up by someone who knew their fashion labels. Shame! So Camilla Skovgaard has been on my radar ever since. Every sesaon she captures silouettes and forms them into extrodinary stylish footwear for feisty young women with enough attitude to wear them. We love her signature sole and the more femenine styles, although secretly impressed by the more bold ones as well. What do you think? Have you been to Selfridges to have a look?
