When it comes to boot trends, there are key styles that will always be considered classics. Think heeled ankle boots and chunky moto styles. But this season, both the fashion set and celebs are introducing fresh boot silhouettes into their wardrobes as alternatives to the basics, including a slighter “riskier” choice: platform boots.
Statement-making in nature, this shoe style has the ability to instantly elevate even the simplest ensemble thanks to its bold and somewhat daring design. And while heeled platforms will always be a favourite, there’s a variety of flatform picks out there (ahem, The Row’s iconic zip-front pair) as well to bring comfort and ease to an ensemble. Sure, these styles won’t completely replace basic ankle boots (they’ll always be a wardrobe staple), but we think more and more style-setters will gravitate toward them this season.
To highlight this fashion-forward shoe trend even more, we’re showing you how some of the trendiest people are wearing platform boots this season. Plus, we’ve collated our favourite pairs of flat and heeled pairs to shop now.
