H&M's Boots Are So Chic, Everyone Will Think They're Designer

Boot season has arrived! I, for one, couldn't be happier. As an autumn girl at heart, the excitement I feel when I slip on a pair of Chelsea boots after months of open-toe shoes is unmatched.

There's one thing that stands in the way of me fully indulging my boot-buying habit: they're expensive. Especially if you favour leather iterations. Don't get me wrong, a good pair of boots is well worth the investment. Get it right and they could last you for many winters to come. But not all of us have the budget for £200 footwear, which is why we're thankful that brands like H&M exist.

H&M regularly impresses us—from its knitwear to the dress that all our editors fell for, we've sung the praises of this high-street hero countless times over the years. But we wanted to shine a spotlight on its shoe department, which, as I type this, is brimming with expensive-looking styles. From sleek knee-highs to western-inspired designs, the boot section is particularly on-point right now. Find twenty of the best below, starting at just £35.

1. Ankle Boots

2. Knee-High Boots

3. Chelsea Boots

4. Heeled Boots

Freelance Fashion Editor

Bébhinn Campbell is an Edinburgh-based fashion and lifestyle writer. After receiving an Audrey Hepburn box set for her 10th birthday and subsequently swooning over the actor’s wardrobe, Bébhinn felt pretty confident she wanted a career that involved clothes. She started her first blog at age 14—the title was a pun, but we’ll leave it at that—and went on to intern at print and digital publications in Berlin and London, including Dazed & Confused and Indie magazine

A job at a fashion startup took Bébhinn from Ireland to Scotland in 2019, where she now works as a freelance journalist and copywriter covering everything from travel and interiors to styling advice. As a contributor for Who What Wear, Bébhinn always keeps her eyes peeled for emerging trends and looks worth writing about. She prides herself on her ability to cut through the noise and identify solid investment buys, exciting new brands and updated takes on classic designs. 

While she still loves Audrey Hepburn films, these days, Bébhinn’s sartorial taste sits closer to Annie Hall’s and Alexa Chung’s. In her spare time, she’s likely cooing over cute dogs on rescue websites, playing folk songs on her guitar and browsing bookshops for new additions to her already-overpacked shelves.
