Take a break from black this season and step into these cherry-red Chelsea boots from the master shoemakers at Ludwig Reiter. The brand has over 125 years of experience and is as meticulous today as it was at its founding in 1885, with up to 300 steps involved in the creation of just one pair of shoes. These Goodyear welted boots are as exceptionally well crafted as all Ludwig Reiter footwear, with a vintage calf leather upper, leather lining and all-terrain soles. This makes them blissfully comfortable and hard-wearing, as well as being supremely stylish. The bravest will be wearing them as the finishing touch to an outfit of maroons, burgundies and crimsons.
