Every season we see trends coming in, like last summer the white sneakers took the fashion world by storm. This winter let's all hail 'The Sock Boots'. Yep! You heard it right. A hybrid of heels and socks, they have become the unlikely big shoe trend of 2016. It sounds confronting, but when you see how these fashion-girls and celebrities have styled them, or designers like Phillip Lim and Versace have interpreted them, you'll want a pair pronto.
The sock boots come to us in various textures: leather, velvet and PVC, and lengths - midi, knee and then the somewhat frightening thigh-highs. I personally love the midi ankle length ones as they give the ultra-flattering illusion of super slim ankles due to their stretchy hugging effect. Plus - practically speaking, the addition of a chunky heel makes them actually walk-able and the fitted long silhouette will keep your ankles toasty warm when teaming them with a midi-skirt or cropped pants. See? Now you know why our obsession with this new boot style runs deep.
Below I have accumulated some of my favorites from various online stores which are affordable, good quality and ship from or to India with no extra cost. I already own no. 3, no. 4 and no. 5, and i am super loving them, while i am crushing on the rest. Pair these babies with absolutely anything, from rolled up jeans, midi skirts and short dresses. The best is that these boots look everywhere from sporty chic to demure elegant. Grab your pair right now that i have literally decoded the shopping bit for you.
