There are a few wardrobe staples so timeless, we really believe it’s worth it to keep buying them (or rather, reinvesting in them) year after year. And one of those tried-and-true styles is none other than the over-the-knee boot — aka the love-it-or-hate-it shoe that has managed to rework its way back into our wardrobes yet again this fall.
The style is a generational staple for a reason — first making waves in the ’70s via the funky go-go boots silhouette, then reappearing in the ’90s and early aughts in the form of a chunkier iteration. Now, the over-the-knee boot is back in all of its sky-high glory — and it’s easy to see why. These sleek shoes are great to wear with just about everything, including skirts and minidresses during colder weather that you can simply pair with tights or leggings.
Need more convincing? Ahead, we curated a list of the hottest over-the-knee boots to make a statement in this fall. With styles from brands like Sam Edelman, Aldo, Cole Haan, Steve Madden, and Franco Sarto, we found tons of options at every price point. Whether you’re looking for a relaxed, suede over-the-knee boot or simply a fall-friendly style, we’ve found it all. Keep reading to shop these over-the-knee boot styles and find your perfect match!
