Pair them with a pair of your favourite jeans and a warm woolen coat. These stylish boots are available in Black or Red leather.

Definitely one of our most popular heels, the HASSY by HISPANITAS feature a patent finish which is perfect for work or play and an elasticated top-line that helps the heel fit around your feet, increasing the comfort of the heel so you don't need to worry about all day wear.


Our favourite knee high boot this season is the HOKO by HISPANITAS. This pointed heeled boot is perfect for wearing from day to night and looks great with a pair of jeans or a dark coloured A-line dress.
