my shoe collection is so varied, as you can see. from a classic, black leather chelsea boot to a chunky pair of platform sandals, i absolutely adore them both. 

when these duo leather chelsea boots arrived in the post, i couldn't quite grasp the words to express how nice they are to look at, let alone wear. the leather is suuuuuper soft and as they're such a simple design, you can chuck them on with ANYTHING (i usually wear mine with skinny jeans.) they come in various widths (narrow, standard and wide) to make sure they fit everybody and, just to tempt you even more, they're available in other colours. if you're after a timeless, well-made pair of boots for the upcoming seasons, duo have got you covered.

although i briefly mentioned the upcoming season's above, i'm currently living in these sandals and making the most of the weather. this summer i've found it so hard to find any sandals i like; being super picky doesn't help but, for some reason i haven't seen a pair that screamed at me, until i saw these. i was originally looking for some cleated or chunky soled sandals (and i still am) and i wanted to pay a little more to ensure they were leather so they'd last me a while. unfortunately the pairs on ebay weren't what i was looking for and i'm aware these aren't going to appeal to everyone but, i couldn't say no.
