The footwear brand has served up the most perfect pair of hiker, lace-up ankle boots that are not only achingly stylish, but score major points on the practicality scale too. 


Mukluk Suede Shearling Hiking Boots, £150, FitFlop


Dubbed the Mukluk, the shearling boots feature a cosy, thick lining and metallic hardware eyelets to tap into the hiking boot trend. They also feature FitFlop’s supercushioned, triple-density Microwobbleboard™ midsoles, for the comfiest fit – there’ll be no excuse for you not to go on that rainy day dog walk hike with these beauties. Just spray with suede protector and you're good to go!

Like a little hug for your feet, the underfoot cushion makes them like wearing slippers and the triple-density midsoles are actual heaven for your feet.

We’re all for wearing this style of boot with jeans and knit, but they look equally as stylish with autumnal floral dresses and thick black tights or under a pair of mom jeans and striped knit for a girls’ brunch or pub date by the fire.
