We’ve had great fun doing our research into this season’s hot boot trends. We were most impressed with the high-level creativity that sparked such a diverse collection of fresh, original styles.
Thigh highs, ankle toppers and knee huggers. Shaggy, shiny, bejeweled and be-jungled. Strapped, embossed, distressed and glittery. You name it—the Fall 2014 boot collection has special wonders for every fashionista.
We’ve chosen seven different boot styles from hot designers like Alexander Wang, Kenzo and Gianvito Rossi and paired them with similar boots with crowd-pleasing price tags under $200 from Steve Madden, Nine West and Bogs. Overall the price tags in our selection range from a high of $1,350 to a low $53.
As always we encourage you to “shop your shape” from head to toe, knowing you’ll be flattering your female body type.
