Finding cruelty-free boots that are beautiful and functional can be a nightmare. With knee-highs (or over-the-knee, if you’re feeling brave) taking over the catwalks at Calvin Klein, Moschino and MGSM, our shoe shopping’s at a whole new level this season.
Three ways to wear high boots
Team them with a faux-leather miniskirt and a cable knit.
Use them to add interest to skinny jeans and an oversized sweater.
Pair them with a short faux fur jacket and structured handbag.
We have good news: we’ve hunted all around the web for the best pairs of the season, and as the weather is pretty mild for December, it is not too late to buy them! The bad news: we cannot have them all.
