Many of us are still clinging onto the last days of sandals (I'm personally very reluctant to bid adieu to my extra-comfy Tevas), but it would appear that the fashion set are done and dusted with open toes—the time has come for boots. New York City has been mild enough to warrant backless dresses and bare legs, but its fashion week inhabitants are dead set on covering up their legs and feet, something we can be rather effectively achieved with a pair of full-on knee-high boots. It's a shoe trend we predicted would catch fire quite a few months ago, but now the trend wheels are fully in motion, and there's no slowing this fall look down.
This boot choice has been so popular that it has spawned multiple iterations, resulting in knee-high boot microtrends within the trend. We've seen classics (like a pair of plain black pull-ons) as well more adventurous creations (long-line cowboy boots, anyone?). In addition to the breadth on offer, we've also clocked that women are using them in myriad outfit combinations: It's safe and easy to pair them with a printed midi dress, but others are opting to tuck jeans in or to go bare-legged with a short hemline. Keep scrolling to see the knee-high boot trends of 2019, how they're being worn and the best versions you can buy today.
