Say Hello to Sock Boots: Fall’s Footwear Frontrunner

Flat riding boots are forever, and most of us own heeled booties that replace sexy sandals when summer fades. But sock boots are a new (and daring!) boot silhouette stepping out this fall and drop-kicking the classic standbys to the curb.

Sock Boots

Sock boots have a shaft that extends higher than a traditional ankle boot (sometimes midcalf) and is fitted to the leg, like a sock. Most styles sit on a chunkier heel, so there's no need to fear a tumble when picking up your morning latte in a sleepy haze or racing to work a little behind schedule. As temperatures drop and layers make it harder to flaunt your fashion, we are all about edgy, eye-catching footwear to pick up the sartorial slack. These 10 pairs of sock boots will have you strutting to new style heights this season.
