Winter can be harsh. Seeing summer fade into the background, the chill roll in, and the slip-slops and shorts disappear can be a harrowing sight, but Jeep is making things a whole lot easier with their upcoming footwear range for 2016. We got the chance to check some of it out and take them for a test-drive (yes, that was an obligatory bad pun).
The Classic Ankle High
Boots don’t need to be all rough-and-tumble, and Jeep’s Gecko boots help give that robust yet stylish look without weighing you down. This bold design features leather uppers and durable soles and comes in a wide range of colours including yellow, brown, grey, navy and red. Boasting a lace-up front for a secure fit and a rounded nose, they offer a high ankle cut. Perfect for the modern guy, pair these bad boys with jeans and a classic white Tee and check shirt, and you’re good to go.
The Ruggedly Handsome
If you’re looking for something to hit the streets with this season, the Chizzle boot from Jeep will provide versatility and style in one handsome package. The Chizzle comes in black and brown but I really liked this dark brown colour as it paired awesomely with just about anything. For a relaxed day-time look pair it with tan coloured chinos and a casual sweater.
Ready for Anything
Give your adventure apparel a new spark with Jeep footwear’s Iguana Lace up boot. This trendy design has brown coloured uppers, a lace-up front for a secure fit and they offer a round nose and high ankle cut. This pair can be teamed with chinos, a shirt, and smart cardigan to create a strong contrast in your outfit.
A Casual Statement
A challenge we guys often have is deciding whether to wear casual or smart shoes out on the town in winter. The Willow boot from Jeep Footwear provides an option which delivers that casual vibe while also offering something a bit more substantial in the style department. The ankle-high boot features navy mock-suede uppers and the beige lace-up front adds some comfort and style to the footwear. Pair with light blue skinny jeans and a collared shirt for a solid look. They’re available in brown with red laces too.
All of the boots featured in our winter boot collection are from Jeep Footwear South Africa. The boots are available from select Stuttafords and Edgars stores nationwide as well as from various other stockists around South Africa. For a full list of stockists visit the Jeep Footwear website.
