Today’s Coveted Working Look: J.Crew Field Boots

by Anne Dreshfield | October 30th, 2013   

I have a confession to make: I have been wearing the same pair of knee-high, leather boots for years. I’ve been wearing them for the past six years, to be exact!

They’re the J.Crew Field Boots, or the version of them that was around six years ago.

I’ve basically worn mine into the ground over the past six years, and while the toes are a bit scuffed and need some love, and I should get them re-soled, the boots are still in great condition. I’m sure they’ll last me for much, much longer than six years – these boots are a fantastic investment.

Inspired by a vintage pair she found years ago, our designer created these classic riding boots to go with everything. Crafted in Italian leather and finished with essential equestrian details, this style is a wardrobe workhorse (and a sole savior).

I own a dark brown pair (a few shades darker than the one pictured above), but they also come in black and a gray cobblestone color. Craving a little more texture? The Field Boots also come in sumptuous suede.

I swear, these boots are the most well-loved piece in my closet. They’re the best!
