Doubtful that warmth and business style can be combined? Think again. Even in winter, there’s no need to put the proven quality of LLOYD 1888 on the shelf. The Ankle Boots from our premium collection combine toasty toes with stylish appearance – a vital feature, because rugged boots are often frowned upon in the workplace even when the snow piles up outside. Elegant lace-up styles in jodhpur or Chelsea designs in smooth leather are the perfect solution.
1888 Boots are manufactured using the sturdy Goodyear Welted technique, making them extra durable and protecting your feet from adverse weather for longer. Welted ankle boots incorporate a cushioning cork filler between the outsole and insole that provides additional insulation and ensures comfort in wear. This offers a considerable advantage over bonded shoes, in which the pores of the leather are clogged with adhesive, impairing breathability.
If ankle boots are to keep their good looks and weatherproofness for longer, regular care is essential. Two-weekly application of a nourishing leather care product is usually sufficient; massage it well into the shoe and then polish with a horsehair brush. Before their first outing, the shoes should be treated with a suitable impregnation agent, to protect the leather – and your feet – from moisture. Repeat this step at least monthly.
