FASHION FRIDAY // The Sock Boot

FASHION FRIDAY – The Sock Boot

As we transition into the cooler months here in the southern hemisphere boots are slowly reemerging from the back of our wardrobes and onto our feet! Ready to see us through another season with warmth, style and comfort.

Personally I’m a huge fan of any boot- especially an ankle style. They truly are the most versatile piece of footwear you can own. A great ankle boot gives a certain punch to an outfit that may otherwise have been quite bland. I especially love the ankle boot with dresses or skinny jeans. Like so…

This season’s must have boot is the ‘sock boot’ which thanks to Kanye West was everywhere during fall 2016. Mr. Kardashian West released his Yeezy version which thanks to the many members in his family, flooded social media feeds worldwide.

The best way to describe them is like wearing a tight sock over a pair of heels. Which I’m pretty sure is where Kanye got his inspiration from. Remember the shoes in Flashdance? Yep, something like this…

What the sock boot does, is it gives a smooth silhouette to the leg and will usually mould to fit on most body sizes.

If you’re looking to introduce the sock boot into your wardrobes this winter here are some of my favourites and where to buy them.
