7 New Croc-Effect Boots At Net-A-Porter That’ll Elevate Any Winter Look
October consistently proves to be a watershed month for new fashion trends, often riding the adrenaline of September's major fashion week shows. While snakeskin and animal prints are still very much in vogue, croc-effect boots are the next big trend making itself known across the runways and on Instagram.
While crocodile print appeared in many designers' Spring/Summer 2019 collections — from glimmering darkly in Miu Miu to the croco-effect transparent fabrics of Sies Marjan — the most common place this trend is popping up now is in sleek boots. Chalk it up to a slow transition out of the cowboy trend that shook up 2018, since embossing leather with a croc-effect has long since been a staple in western shoe designs.
The versatility of the croc boot is key — they can be as understated or as flashy as you choose. Emily Ratajkowski wore these sultry Paris Texas knee-high crocodile boots with a red satin dress for a night out, while Kendall Jenner lounged in yellow Fendi croco-effect cowboy boots. The boots don't have to be the focal point of your outfit, either: take a page from Net-A-Porter's Instagram and pair subdued Gabriela Hearst croc-effect boots with similar shades — in this case, '70s white goes with a deep royal blue for an office-appropriate outfit that's anything but basic.
You won't have to wait for the most recent collections to hit the shelves, though. Plenty of designer croc-effect boots are already on the market thanks to Net-A-Porter's recent additions. Keep scrolling to browse seven new boots, all featuring the croc-effect trend that's going to be huge.
LOQ Matea Croc-Effect Leather Ankle Boots
Try out this trend for yourself with these booties. The embossed crocodile effect on the dark leather is striking, but the blocky heel and square toe keep these boots casual enough for everyday wear.
Ganni Callie Croc-Effect Leather Ankle Boots
The neutral crocodile-embossed leather of these boots looks hyper realistic. These don't skimp on the comfort, with a generous block heel and hidden elasticized panels, making them an easy first choice for a night on the town.
Tibi Logan Croc-Effect Leather Knee Boots
The rounded top of these boots calls on the cowboy trend, while the roomy leg and architectural heel are as modern as the runway these just walked off. While you already know black boots go with everything, try styling these boots with loose fabrics and oversized sweaters like Tibi did during its show.

Eytys Nikita Croc-Effect Leather Ankle Boots
These croc-effect boots by Eytys play up '80s goth style, with a super chunky rubber sole, exposed steel toe-like hardware, and the signature oversized Eytys pull tab.
