This season is a witness to the comeback of the sock boots, thanks in part to It girls wearing them on off-duty days. Honestly, it’s just about time; when everyone’s busy covering themselves up in preparation for the temperature, why not do it stylishly and comfortably? Besides offering your tootsies that snug fit and blister-free feeling by the end of the day, the pairs also work sections by embracing the contours of the legs and even lengthening its appearance. What’s more, the kicky booties give your entire ensemble that much needed edge to stand out in the season.
Want to know what we mean? Check out our edit of sock boots to elevate your style this fall.
1. Stuart Weitzman Margot suede sock boots
Stuart Weitzman is easy to pick from the bunch; besides the lovely blush hue of the suede, the pair matches with almost anything from your wardrobe, allowing you to maximize them as much as you can. The color named “Dolce” translates to “sweet” in English, and we believe that that’s another apt way to describe these kicky boots with 4-inch heels.
2. Reike Nen Black and Brown Curved 90 Leather Sock Boots
We’re loving the combination of leather and neoprene on these boots, which would fit right in with the rest of Reike Nen’s collection. The sock boots would be best for those who like their neutrals in their wardrobe, but that’s not to say that these are boring; ballsier fashionistas would find the high block heel equally enticing. This pair comes with a stretch fit as well as an almond toe.
3. Fendi Logo-jacquard stretch-knit and mesh sock boots
Logomania’s still fresh this fall so we don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t want to inject your boots with the trend. Fendi, perhaps the most coveted of logos around, comes in black and white in these sock boots, a less common take than the brown and black variation. Exclusive over at Net-a-Porter, these pull-on boots are made in Italy and would work with your outfits like a charm.
4. Giuseppe Zanotti Notte metallic leather sock boots
Go all dainty and feminine with kitten heels even when you’re rocking some snug sock boots. With Giuseppe Zanotti’s version, you can have the shimmer you need through its metallic leather. Whether you’re working your way through the crowded street or dancing the night away with friends, your feet will hog the attention with this pair; just be careful not to blind anyone with them.
5. Miu Miu marl grey 55 sock heeled boots
We’re all for glamorous sock boots so here’s another from Miu Miu, this time with shimmering threads and equally shiny kitten heels, courtesy of its crystal ornaments. Made in Italy, the heeled boots can easily be pulled on and off, and can work its magic even with athleisure.
6. Altuzarra Davidson leopard-print jersey ankle boots
Always keeping up with the trends? Then you must have heard of how the leopard print is making a big comeback; it just makes sense that this Altuzarra pair makes its way on our list. If you’re growing tired of the pattern, it won’t be easy to dismiss this still as it reverses black and caramel on the print and ends up with something chic, perhaps even more. The pair will look snazzy against autumnal colors in your wardrobe and are perfect this fall.
7. Givenchy Leather over-the-knee sock boots
Want your boots to go all the way up and beyond your knees? Make the right choice with this stunning Givenchy pair. The pliable leather allows the material to follow the shape of your legs, fitting nicely on them as a result. The Cuban heel gives the boots the extra edge it needs.
The beauty of sock boots come in its variety. Instead of being limited by leather, the stretch-knit material allows for different colors, patterns and embellishments that would not be easily achieved otherwise. There’s always something to show off one’s personality, and they come in conjunction with femininity and fierceness. Plus, there is no rule that prevents you from wearing them any day of the week.
