I Think These Are the Best Boots on the High Street—and They're Finally Back

Emma Spedding

When it comes to boots, Whistles has long been one of our favourites on the high-street as they manage to tick trend boxes, at the same time as creating elevated, timeless boots that will go the distance. Back in September we wrote a piece about how strong Whistles' boot section is this autumn—and there is one pair in particular that have been yoyo-ing in and out of stock ever since. The Amber boots are a city spin on a classic hiking boot—they have the chunky sole and typically outdoors-y eyelets for the laces, but are in a soft black leather and have chic stitching around the toe.

They sold out almost instantly and quickly became a regular feature on my Instagram feed, with fashion editors and influencers wearing them at weekends with coats and jeans, and even to work with printed midi dresses. I have worn mine every single day since I got them—and have been surprised by how smart they can look when paired with dressy dresses. The boots came back in stock at the end of last in week—just in time to use the 30% off Black Friday deal. Keep scrolling to see the trending Whistles boots.
