The Tread Sole: Our Style Guide

The Tread Sole: Our Style Guide

Practical tread soles needn’t be boring. See our boots and styling tips here.

A tread sole isn’t necessarily a top priority for most when looking for new everyday boots. However, the addition of the wet-weather friendly sole grants you points for practicality, which with the recent weather, surely doesn’t go amiss.

We understand the words ‘practical’ and ‘tread sole’ aren’t the post appealing. Yet, look beyond the words and we think you will be pleasantly surprised by the designs we have available to you.

The most obvious choice for us and a great place to start is our Balla ankle boots, which prove that practicality can gain you style points. Marrying a tread sole with traditional brogue detailing, the ankle boot also features a complementary leather trim, adjustable laces and a handy zip up the side, making it unsurprising that this boot is a bestseller.

Above all, the ankle boot is versatile. Take a look at how DuoBoots’ customers have styled their Balla boots, proving them to work for any occasion and any style.

Ankle boots not for you? Fear not, as we have Marvel, the knee-high sister you are sure to love for its relaxed edge.

Marvel proves a staple of the DuoBoots collection year-round, and for good reason. The lace up front allows adjustment for a perfect fit, yet the side zip makes putting them on easy. When it comes to your styling, we think playing on the biker edge is your best bet. Add in feminine colours when it comes to accessories or your coat to offset the tough design of the boots.

Need boots to take you from city to country? Oakford and Bramley are here to do just that. New to DuoBoots for AW19, and now continuing into 2020 for good reason, the styles are water resistant and henceforth perfect for the outdoors.

Knee high Oakford is far more than a typical country boot. Featuring flattering whip stitch detailing and a mixture of nubuck and leather, the style takes practical far away from boring.

What’s more, the boot has a dual density sock padding for comfort, a tweed lining for warmth and of course, the heavy-duty tread sole.

Bramley, the ankle boot version of Oakford, boasts all the great features above, as well as a full-length zip for ease when putting on.
