We Ranked 12 Boot Trends From Classic to Audacious

Erin Fitzpatrick

While trend-averse shoppers might not be willing to test-drive culottes or metallic ombré leggings, shoes are often a category where people feel comfortable going out on a limb. After all, even with the craziest shoe trend, you can still wear your beloved jeans and a basic sweater to tone down the look. Wherever you fall on the shoe trend spectrum, I can guarantee one thing: You will find a pair you'll love in this story.

Why do I know that? Because I've included a full spectrum of boots, including ultra-classic Chelsea boots on sale for $125, timeless Dr. Martens lace-up boots, and statement-making Chanel gold versions that practically belong in a museum. I dug through a ton of recent celebrity photos to find the cream of the shoe crop, and none other than Rihanna, Beyoncé, Camila Mendes, and Jennifer Lopez were among the A-listers who made my list. Scroll down to see how I ranked 12 boot trends into four categories.
