Turns out the all weather, go anywhere, wear all day & with everything black ankle boot is quite an elusive creature. I should know. I’ve been searching for best part of a year. I had a pair that fell apart – too cheap. I also bought a pair recently that I thought were The Ones – almost but not quite They turned out to be a disappointing smudgy grey rather than black.
And so my thoughts keep turning to the much loved Acne Pistol boots favoured by the likes of Rachel Weisz, Keira Knightley, Clémence Poésy et al. Good heel height, right shade and a simple enough shape and design to wear with any look.
