Arguably the most famous boots with buckles on are Hunter Wellingtons. But unless you live on a farm or muck out stables, they are reserved, for the most part, for an annual outing to Oxegen. Though incidentally New Yorkers are huge fans of the humble welly, I was there in April and I promise you they are the footwear of choice for all of Manhattan!
Leaving the mighty Hunter aside, designers have put buckles all over their ‘regular’ boots and I personally would love a pair; the only requirement is the more buckles the merrier! They would look incredible with dresses and skinny trews alike and would bring right through the seasons offering that edginess that plain old non-embellished boots would be hard pressed to.
