Not only does winter mean we get to enjoy Christmas lights and holiday dinners, winter also means we get to celebrate one of shoe wear’s greatest: boots. Here are a few of this winter’s hottest boot trends for you.

 

The Combat Boot

With no heel and a relaxed design, the combat boot is a great choice for your everyday go-to boot. Steve Madden made this style popular with the Troopa Boot, pictured on the left. Combat boots are also a good choice for rainy days.

The Thigh High

Thigh high boots’ popularity has blown up this winter due to their ability to spice up almost any outfit. Unlike combat boots, thigh highs are definitely not for casual occasions. Instead, wear thigh highs when you are going out or attending a party, they are a guaranteed show stopper.

The Chelsea Boot

The chelsea boot is a particular style of ankle booties that have been around for years. Its classic silhouette makes it another contender for an everyday boot. Typically chelsea boots come with a very short heel, usually 1”, so there is no need to worry about comfort.

The Ankle Bootie

The most versatile out of the group, the ankle bootie that has gained immense popularity this season hits right above your ankle and has about a 3” heel. The relatively shorter heel makes it more comfortable than your usual going out shoes. Ankle booties can be dressed down to be worn everyday or dressed up for going out.
