Ever since stretchy, athletic-sock-inspired boots were debuted at Vetements and Balenciaga, the sock boot trend has been a sartorial staple for many fashion enthusiasts. Remember when the Internet attempted to create their DIY version of Kim Kardashian’s Yeezy boots?
People re-created the boots by slipping a pair of socks over shoes with pointed heels. Yes, it’s as simple as that. But more than anything, it’s the silhouette that makes the actual sock boot look edgy.
Luckily, you can rock the streetwear shoe trend of the season without breaking the bank (or getting disappointed with DIYs) with these high street pieces:
Nude knitted sock boots, Missguided
This pair looks straight out of a Yeezy lookbook with its nude hue and knitted texture. Keep the muted, pale palette and match these with powder blue frayed jeans and a simple graphic tee for a look that’s laidback but chic.
The Demibenatar bootie, Stuart Weitzman
Go utilitarian with these boots and wear it with an oversized outwear à la Rihanna or elevate it with a blazer dress like Kim Kardashian.
Striped high heel sock-style ankle boots, ZARA
These deep wine high-heeled boots are accented with contrasting stripes and square cut toes. For a laid-back but sultry ensemble, pair this with matching red vinyl trousers.
Velvet sock boots, Forever 21
Velvet is still very much a fabric for the season and it will probably never go out of style. These russet boots are a great statement pair to match with your favorite oversized tee like Bella Hadid.
Margarita black sock boots, Topshop
For stylish gals who like to keep it classic or just at a minimalist level in terms of color, this pair would be great addition to your wardrobe. Wear this with a structured top and a textured midi skirt for an instant cool-girl look.
