On & Around the Street

The 5 New Boot Trends To Wear Now

From austerely romantic lace-up boots that bring a touch of Victoriana to the season to demure knee-high styles that exude ladylike allure and wonderfully utilitarian combat boots, the autumn/winter 2019 catwalks yielded an eclectic assortment of trends but the bottom line is this: There’s a perfect boot waiting for you on Sloane Street.

The biggest trend we spotted was for combat boots, seen on the runways of Valentino, Fendi, Prada, Ferragamo and more, where their androgynous appeal offered an undeniably fashion-forward option that also promised the blessed benefit of practical comfort. Just the thing for low-key lunches, errand-running or working a Nineties grunge vibe in the season’s pretty floral dresses.

Similarly practical, the trend for cowboy boots is going strong, while animal patterns – whether leopard, snake or giraffe – bring a touch of the wild side.
