These H&M Boots Look Expensive, and That's Why Editors Want Them

·2-min read

I have to be honest: I'm a bit of a snob about high-street shoes because I worry about quality and fit. But every now and then, a pair comes along and alters my fussy viewpoint. Trust me—My wardrobe is not stacked high with Manolos and Guccis. I do have styles in my collection from Marks and Spencer that look very premium (and editor Emma Spedding swears by these ballet pumps), Uterqüe is a real winner for real leather, and every now and then, H&M comes through with the goods. But I am selective.

It looks like autumn 2021 could be a turning point, as there are a handful of new footwear trends—namely the ongoing adoration for chunky-soled boots—that translate well when it comes to wallet-friendly price tags. In the past fortnight, I've noticed one particular pair of H&M boots standing out above the rest. In fact, after we included them in a round-up of the best affordable chunky boots for the new season, our readers confirmed our suspicions and have been buying them in earnest. The £40 knee-high pull-on boots are notching up more and more favourable reviews by the minute, scoring four out of five stars online, which is no easy feat considering the volume of H&M orders that ring through the tills each day and how discerning customers can be. The cream and taupe colourways are currently sold out, but I'm keeping everything crossed that they come back in stock soon…

So let's take a look at these wunder-boots and see what the fuss is all about.
