This Boot Trend Is Back—And It Girls Are Loving It

Share

Booties are clearly having a major moment lately via stilettos and slinky sock numbers, but another silhouette is also making its mark … again. Vastly popular in the ’90s and in the early 2010s, combat boots are back and cooler than ever thanks to embellishments, edgy detailing and unique shapes. In fact, they’re rapidly becoming the choice footwear for It girls like Kaia Gerber and Bella Hadid (and they showed up on numerous fall runways). The beauty of these chunkier boots is that they complement everything from off-duty leather separates to feminine dresses. They’re a fresh alternative to delicate heels when you’re coveting a tougher look—or just something more comfortable. Shop our picks ahead to shake up your collection this season.
