What it is:
Combat boots have been rediscovered in countless collections over the past couple years. There are many styles to choose from, including minimalistic, minimal versions and oversized models with heavy soles. Although they were initially designed for function, designers have redesigned this utilitarian style with feminine and delicate versions that can be paired with almost anything.
These are the reasons you will want them
Combat boots combine style, comfort, and practicality to make them a great choice for winter. These boots are often flat which makes them easy to wear all day. They also have rubber lug soles that provide extra cushioning. Customers can wear them with shorts, dresses, and skirts.
We’ve seen them everywhere:
Alexander McQueen presented black combat boots with matching midi dresses. They were designed to be worn with cropped trousers and matched well with cropped pants at Coach 1941. At Armani Exchange they were available in white patent leather. Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri, wore knee-high lace up versions that she paired with sporty-chic outfits. Agnes B. opted to wear a more feminine, pared-back beige version.
How to style them
Although oversized, laced-up black combat boots look great with almost any type of denim, the lighter, more casual styles can be worn with most wardrobe staples. Moschino’s classic style, which is stylish and warm in colder temperatures, is a reliable choice. They have a slim profile and are trimmed with the logo. The croc-embossed Michael Kors version is the perfect choice to add colour to a neutral outfit. These boots can be worn with either cropped jeans or a knitted gown. Dorothee Schumacher’s boots have a lot of detail and are set on thick rubber soles. They blend workwear style with dainty details. Madewell’s boots are perfect for winter thanks to their all black look.
The latest collection of combat boots has seen a lot of rework. This makes it easy to find a style that suits you – whether you’re looking for something colourful, sporty, minimalistic or oversized. They are a stylish winter option that combines comfort and function.
