I don’t know what the weather’s like where you are, but this week in London it’s been WET. And as I learn that some massive storm is heading this way for the weekend, complete with more rain, my thoughts turn inevitably to wet weather footwear. And in turn, anklingtons.

“What are these anklingtons you speak of?”, I hear newer En Brogue readers crying. Well, anklington boots is a phrase I coined a while back to describe Wellington boots that are ankle length (a much more stylish option in the city than a full-on knee-boot if you ask me) after I ran after a girl wearing a pair in Barcelona to get a closer look (read about that here). And by a stroke of luck to coincide with this inclement weather, I’ve stumbled upon a brilliant and reasonably priced brand that makes them: Meduse.

What I love about Anklingtons is that you don’t really need to change the rest of your outfit to accommodate them. They work best with skinny turned up jeans but also with smarter trousers and skirts too. And if you get a particularly smart pair, you won’t feel the need to change out of them into something else when you get to work. Because let’s face it, we flat shoe lovers aren’t ones for carrying spare shoes in our bags…
