Boots are made for walking! This season’s trendiest boot styles have taken off at fbo

Here at fbo, we have an extensive range of the most stylish winter boots. Boots have always been considered to be a wardrobe staple as they are both stylish and keep your feet and lower legs warm and cozy.

With our inexpensive fashion options, you would be crazy to miss out on our unique collection of winter boots.

Whether you are looking for some snazzy ankle boots, some sexy over the knee boots or some warm knee-high ones, we have exactly what you need!

Black in all styles or bold in gold

Winter 2021 is all about rich colours and warm hues. Two colours that have been predominant on the international catwalks lately have been black and bright, bold gold.

Black is incredibly versatile and is ideal for your winter mix and match wardrobe, while gold is perfect as a statement item and to help you make your own, unique fashion impression.

To stock up on a few classic, black winter items, interspersed with some gold statement pieces, visit an fbo outlet or check out our online store.

Leather, faux leather and distressed leather first choice!

In terms of the most trending fabrics for winter 2021, fbo can confirm that leather, faux leather and distressed leather is definitely at the foremost of every fashion designer’s mind.

Gorgeous leather jackets, pants or a skirt will take you from a professional look for the office to a more relaxed outfit for a night on the town.

The great advantage of leather, faux leather and distressed leather is that this fabric is incredibly durable and will last you for ages, as long as you take care of it.

Ankle boots trusted to be always on trend


If there is only one item that you invest in for your winter wardrobe, it should be a good quality pair of ankle boots.

Ask any fashion expert or designer and they will tell you that ankle boots for winter simply never go out of fashion and can be worn in many different ways.

fbo customers, in particular, love wearing their ankle boots with their favorite skinny pants for the office or with a mini skirt over the weekend or anytime for that matter.

Whether you love your ankle boots with kitten heels, something a little higher or flat-heeled boots, we may just have exactly what you need.

If you are not sure which style of ankle boot to go for, an fbo team member would be delighted to assist you in store. We have stores on the East Rand in Kempton Park and Springs and in Pretoria in Atterbury Value Mart and at Mall@Reds all very convenient locations.

Mid-calf, Knee high or over the knee?

If you are new to wearing boots, you might be wondering which boots are best for you.

As mentioned above, a great pair of ankle boots should be a part of any winter wardrobe, but another pair or two of boots definitely helps to round out your winter clothing collection.

Depending on the fashion statement you want to make and how you want to wear your boots, this will help you determine how high your boots should be.

Mid-calf boots are very popular and a great everyday boots option. They look incredible when worn with jeans, a winter skirt or practically any other garment as they are very versatile. They have heels in varying heights and there are some great winter colours to choose from.

Knee high boots work extremely well with skinny jeans or pants or midi skirts. They give the added benefit of keeping your lower legs nice and warm if you are wearing a skirt and always look trendy.

Over the knee boots are definitely the sexiest option when it comes to boots. They can transform an otherwise boring outfit into something quite extraordinary! We recommend wearing them with a mini skirt or a pair of hot pants to show the world you mean business and to make a bold statement.

Classic Combat boot in black, houndstooth or bright colours make a statement

If you are a keen follower of high fashion, you will have noticed that the classic combat boot has made a comeback in a huge way.

Although they look very chic, they feel very comfortable when worn and this makes them a great choice for busy professionals, students or people who prioritize comfort as they can be worn the whole day without tiring out your feet.

Check out fbo’s selection of boots and be prepared to make a statement this winter!

Cuban heels make a comeback!

Most fbo customers have been delighted to see that cuban heels have made a massive comeback.

If you are not familiar with cuban heels, they are boots or shoes that feature a broad and low to medium length heel with a slight tapering to the front of the shoe.

They have a smart and slightly formal appearance, making them ideal for office wear or for giving a bit of character to an outfit with jeans.

Your Cuban heels will effortlessly take you from church, to work and a party with friends as they are very versatile.
