October is here, which for us Brits means that summer is officially over and wet and windy, cold and crisp days are becoming ever more frequent.
Over in Germany though, Oktober is a season for celebration, with Oktoberfest festivities filling the nation with fun, food and of course, lots of beer!
If you’re partial to a helping of würstl with a side of sauerkraut, this is the month to indulge. Here at Clinkards, however, we’ve decided to treat our feet instead, with some of the comfiest, cosiest and most stylish boots to come out of Germany.
If you haven’t already guessed it, we’re talking about Gabor, one of our favourite brands! With new season styles being added to our website almost every day, we’ve picked some of our most-loved styles to showcase right here.
So put those feet up and picture them in a pair of the newest Gabor boots…
First on the podium are the Gabor Cougar and the Gabor National ankle boots. Red leather boots are a HUGE trend this season; we’ve picked the Gabor Cougar because of their subtle shade that makes them so wearable. Lace-up boots that nod to the current military-utilitarian trend make the Gabor National ankle boots are sure-fire winner. They fasten with a handy inside zip too, so there’s no fuss when you’re getting ready in a rush!
It’s that time when we’re starting to track down some practical winter footwear; the kind of shoes you can wear to walk the dog, wear to work or pull on with jeans when you’re heading into town. So the search for the low heeled ankle boot begins. The Gabor Jensen and Gabor Grove ankle boots are cute, simple and stylish – everything you could ask for from a pair of wardrobe staples!
If we had to pick one feature to define the AW14 footwear trend, it’s the zip. Adding interest to a plain pair, without ruining the simplicity of the silhouette with unnecessary details, the humble zip is the star of the season. Adorn your toes with the Gabor Lexy or Gabor Onida zip detailed boots.
