Review | Brantano Lotus Lilian ankle boots

Brantano Lotus Lilian boots

It’s about this time of year that I start thinking about winter clothes – swapping the tshirts for wooly jumpers and the flip flops for boots. Even though the sun is still shining there is a chill in the air. Brantano recently sent me a pair of their rather gorgeous Lotus Lilian ankle boots in brown leather – perfect for the colder, damper school runs to come.

The military inspired styling makes these boots really on trend right now, and the chocolate brown colour goes with everything from jeans and jackets to skirts and tights. I love the comfortable rounded toe – although if you have wide feet you might find this a bit on the tight size. I would definitely  recommend getting your feet measured first if you have a chance. The top of the boot sits a couple of inches above my ankle bone, which is just right for me.

I am never brilliant with heeled footwear – anything too high just isn’t comfortable for everyday wear, but the small 3cm block heel on these boots is easy to wear and causes me no problems. They are incredibly comfortable to walk in and fit snugly to my feet without any rubbing or pinching. The soles have a good amount of grip, yet remain flexible enough to walk in on all surfaces.

The detailing really makes these boots. The wrap around buckle and the small studs at the top mean they can be worn for any occasion, and they really help to lift an outfit. The burnished leather is delicate, soft and lightweight, and the inner textile lining is warm and cosy. Perfect for autumn, winter and even the cooler spring days, these Lotus Lilian ankle boots are my new wardrobe essential!

    I do love a good ankle boot and these look so durable and practical…without looking mumsy. I’m not surprised you love them! I hope you enjoy wearing them over and over again! #TriedTested

    I LOVE the look of these and as it happens, I really AM looking for new boots. I feel a trip to Brantano coming along. Love the colour too. Not too ‘brown’ to go with black either (which I know is a no-no but with a budget, it’s a must!!). Thanks for hosting #TriedTested

    Oh yes, I just dug out my winter boots too – it’s that time of year!
    These do look lovely and easy to wear which is essential when you have little ones to keep up with. There’s a Brantano just opened near me, I may pop in!
    Thanks for the linky

    These look fab and I really like the colour as it will go with everything! I’m not a great fan on heels when out with the kids. Thanks for hosting #TriedTested xx
