Patrick Cox Brown Knee Boots

It’s not just me is it? It feels unseasonably mild outside. I hear that the cold snap is coming though, so today I thought it would be nice to wear some knee boots with a skirt. As I’m now back to work, I tend to get so hot commuting on the train, and carrying the ridiculous amount of bags I always seem to, so I didn’t really want to wear tights.

I bought these Patrick Cox boots on 15 Jan 2008 at the Sloane Square store. I know this because I still have the receipt in my wallet! The boots (Jaipur) were originally £395 but I picked them up for £51. I think that’s why I have the receipt still – such a great bargain (or I’m a hoarder).

I have a few pairs of knee high boots, but these are my most classic meaning I can pair them with skirts or trousers. The brown leather also makes them less dressy than black boots which I love.

My love affair with Patrick Cox actually started whilst I was at Uni , thanks to my friend Gini who had a couple of pairs. Being a student, I could only look and adore (as I didn’t work as Gini did) but upon leaving Leeds, I bought a couple of pairs. I’m not a fan of all his styles, as I do find them quite masculine, but these were too good to miss.

Today, I’m wearing them with:

  • Navy and White Stripe Pleated Collar T-Shirt – Cos
  • Navy “Hitched up” Skirt – Maison Martin Margiela for H&M
  • Grace Wish Bracelet – Estella Bartlett
  • Statement Ring – J.Crew

I’m always unsure about pearing brown with navy as it could resemble a bruise, but I think I’ve gotten away with it today. A great winter, but not too hot, office outfit.

I’ve not really seen anything similar to these boots out there. There are lots of brown knee high boots of course, but the soft leather, heel detail, and the cosy lining all make these unique.

Are you a wearer of boots no tights in the winter? Would you wear Navy with brown? Would love to hear from you!
