What could be better than style and comfort combined in a pair of boots? Foot bliss. I was recently gifted these stunning ankle boots by Van Dal. I have worked with Van Dal before. You can see an image of me wearing a pair of their lace-ups here. As well as their classic styles Van Dal is currently offering some on-trend styles as well. I chose the Barlow because I loved the grey leopard heel (you can see the detail better in the images below).
My coat is many years old originally from Nicole Farhi.
I have deliberately decided to team my boots with a very simple outfit. My personal philosophy is less is more. I like to keep my style simple and have one item as the star of the show. In this case it is my boots. I often choose a colourful scarf or piece of statement jewellery as the centre piece.
My chunky navy sweater is about three years old from Me&Em. A bit pricey but they do offer excellent chunky sweaters.
Style and comfort combined in a pair of boots
You can see more detail of the leopard print on the boots. I personally like the fact that the design is mainly grey as it combines well with the colours in my wardrobe. However, they do have a touch of tan so can also be co-ordinated with warmer tones. Van Dal specialises in wider width footwear. I actually have narrow feet but the wider width allows me to wear a pair of warm socks in the winter.

Very stylish boots and I love the colour of your coat.
I love your blog and your style! Thank you for showing us over 60s how to dress in style AND comfort. And speaking of comfort – could you share what pants you are wearing? They look very comfortable;-)
Thank you for your comment. My black trousers are by Robell. I bought them some years ago in a small boutique in Derbyshire. The brand seems to sell mainly to out of town shops I can’t find them in the larger stores. I did find some similar at Amazon click this link to take a look Robell black trousers
You look lovely, as usual, Jo. I need wide width footwear, but the options of limited here. Does Van Dal market to the US? Thanks.
Love these boots!
I looks like Van Dal do ship internationally according to their website however you will need to contact them for details
