Around July of every year, I start looking for my winter flat boots; I scour the stores, high and low, for boots that will (a) look good with the floral dresses I seem to live in, come September and (b) suit for Oxegen and Electric Picnic – festivals that require a certain amount of waterproofing, a decent leg height (just below the knee is ideal) and a colour that won’t show up flecks of mud for months – nay, years – afterwards.

But July is usually not the best month to buy boots – the shops are full of gladiator sandals and strappy shoes, flip flops and glittery, coloured pumps. But here – lo! – Asos has come to the rescue with a selection of summer-appropriate boots. Now, all that said, I might not recommend these for festival fun, but they are perfect summer boots, and won’t set you back too much (many a time I’ve been tempted into Brown Thomas by their boot selection at un-boot-appropriate times . . .)
