From Chelsea and bovver to Jodhpur and cowboy, allow us to introduce your new favourite boots

Not all boots are built equal. Some, like Chelsea boots (which, with their elasticised sides, were originally designed for equestrian pursuits in the Victorian era) are as great for hardy outdoor wear as they are for teaming with smarter looks.

Bovver boots, on the other hand, should only ever be worn with denim and at the weekend. Hiking boots – well, it depends on the style. Smart leather hikers can be worn with chinos and slick single-breasted overcoats, while more heavy-duty waxed styles should be saved for country pubs and country pubs only.

Here, to help you get a handle on the best boot styles on the market right now, whichever shape you're into, is our edit of the eleven best boots in the world. Happy stomping/shopping.
