Each Autumn there's one footwear trend the fashion world fawns over. We've seen the rise and fall of over-the-knee boots, chunky white trainers and the classic Chelsea boot - but in the fast-paced and fickle world of fashion there's a new shoe adorning every fashion editor's feet.
This season it looks like we'll be getting all tied up courtesy of the shoe du jour: the lace-up boot.
"Lace-up, Victorian-style boots look set to usurp the slim, white, kitten-heel pair of last autumn, and I for one can’t wait," said GLAMOUR's Fashion Editor, Charlie Teather.
"More directional than boot trends of late, they look equally chic beneath feminine, lace-trimmed midi dresses (Jane Austen, we see you) as they do with straight leg jeans and a blouse.
"While sandal season may remain well and truly in the swing of things over the next few weeks (if the sun comes back out), I can't help but be a smidge excited for things to cool down - and that's almost entirely because of the resurgence of the lace-up Victorian boot."
And there's one pair in particular that's flying off shelves. Zara's Lace-Up Leather High Heel Ankle Boots, £95.99, are available in cream and sky blue and feature a soft leather upper, laces on the front, lined wide flat heels, and that square toe we'll see everywhere next season.
"The £95.99 lemon lace-up pair from Zara, with their square toe, have got my heart all a flutter," said Charlie.
It seems she's on to a winner; the high street boots have sold out in every single size except for size 3 (god damn you, petite feet folk).
The website does, however, state that the boots are 'coming soon' in a plethora of sizes. Phew.
If you have a penchant for the luxer things in life, Charlie suggests splurging on the £420 Manu Atelier offering.
"One of the most controversial pieces I own, these lace-up boots have garnered surprising reactions - with those I thought might be repelled fawning all over them, and vice versa. I, however, cannot get enough. I just wish autumn would hurry up so I can slip on a white, lace-trimmed dress and live out my Jane Austen fantasies."
Step to it.
