10 Pairs of Eye-Catching Boots That Are Totally Party Ready
Now that winter is on the horizon, we're on the hunt for a boot refresh. We love the breadth of boots out there, from faux fur–covered moon boots for ice-cold days to leathery knee-highs and platform booties. In the same vein, we love how versatile a boot can be, whether you're pairing them with a miniskirt, a floral maxi dress, or your everyday boot-cut jeans. A good pair of boots will work with just about anything.
From chic metallic cowboy boots to faux snakeskin booties and vibrant blue Chelsea boots, below you'll find some of our favorite pairs for the new season — bold, runway-ready options that'll make a statement no matter what you've got planned.
Pull&Bear Faux Leather Knee High Chunky Boot
There is nothing quite as eye-catching as a knee- or thigh-high boot. This faux-leather pair ($90) hits right in the middle, with a comfortable sock-like cuff. The chunky sole and molded tread add to the edgy vibe. Wear them with a mini skirt or dress and an oversize blazer for a statement-making look full of attitude (and style).
Sophia Webster Ziggy Crystal-Embellished Patent Leather Biker Boots
These glossy patent-leather combat boots ($675) by Sophia Webster are at once glamorous and rugged. Embellished with glitzy crystal trim and oversize buckles, they look like they're made for the runway, but will serve you well no matter where you're headed.
ASOS Design Cozy Faux Fur Knee Boots
Want to prep for the upcoming chill? Pick up a pair of these furry boots ($81, originally $95) to keep you toasty and runway ready. We love the thick molded treads, the slight platform, and, of course, the warm fuzzy faux fur. Slip them on with a pair of leggings, a chunky sweater, and your warmest coat, and you'll be prepared for whatever weather winter has to bring.
Johanna Ortiz Paradise Garden Metallic Leather Boots
Infuse a little Western flair into your wardrobe with these show-stopping bronze metallic cowboy boots ($950). Made from 100 percent cowhide leather, they're buttery soft — and so comfortable that you'll reach for them day after day, whether you're sporting a billowy maxi dress or casual jeans and a tee.
Clergerie Nava Crystal-Embellished Booties
At first glance, you may think these ($995) are just a classic pair of black booties — albeit with a bold, Clergerie heel. But look a bit closer and you'll see that they're actually completely crystal-embellished, a subtle yet remarkable sparkling addition that takes them to the next level. Sure, they're perfect to glam up your everyday look, but they'd also work with a chic black dress and tights for a fancy night out.
ASOS Design Eden High-Heeled Platform Boots
You can't talk about bold footwear without mentioning these exotic faux-snakeskin boots ($68). Complete with a platform and a high block heel, they'll deliver a stylish lift to a relaxed pair of black trousers, a work-ready shift, and anything in between.
ASOS Design Evolve High Heeled Cleated Sock Boots
These booties ($51, originally $60) are at once subtle and statement making. We love the pull-on style and the high block heel that's supported by a slight platform. But it's the cleated sole that takes these booties to new stylish heights. They're the ideal everyday shoe with just the right amount of attitude.
Topshop Margot Chunky Chelsea Boot
You know a Chelsea boot when you see one: they generally have a low profile and a stretchy side panel that makes them easy to slip on and off. This pair ($67) amps up the classic Chelsea style with a block heel, a chunky sole, and an eye-catching blue hue. They're perfect for trudging through whatever weather winter has in store, and we bet you'll make good use of them in the warmer months, too.
Staud Rowan Shearling Over-the-Knee Boots
Take on the chill in runway-ready style with these sumptuous thigh-high shearling boots ($695). Despite their fashionable appearance, they're built for function, too, with a thick rubber crepe sole that offers plenty of traction if you happen to hit an icy spot. Pair them with a cozy sweater dress and some tights for covetable apres-ski style.
Stradivarius Heeled Sock Boot
If you want to stand out from the crowd, there's no better way to do it than pulling on these vibrant red sock booties ($70). The angular pointed toe and thin heel make the look even edgier, whether you're wearing a sheath for work, a pair of relaxed jeans, or a utility jumpsuit.
