Lets jump right in. When it comes to the knee-high boot yield this season brings in the high-end marketplace, boy oh boy is it an inspirational place.
The pair of footwear that actually inspired this whole article are these absolutely perfect baby blue pair of knee-high leather boots from Acne Studios. Featuring a contemporary square toe and mid-heel, these boots are funky personified and if I wasn’t currently saving the would be mine! They also come in this versatile patent black option if you’re afraid to have a little fun.
Another luxury pair of knee-highs that are gaining lots of notoriety within the world’s and words of fashionistas everywhere are this interpretation by New York institution, Khaite. The Davis 50 are a patent croc embossed leather dream which also feature a square toe and mid heel. The way they expertly hug the half are reminiscent of riding boots, but if riding boots could be worn on a runway. We’re utterly obsessed with these.
If the Davis 50 had a southern sister, it would be the Dallas Suede. Also a love child from Khaite New York, these white suede boots feature a classic western rounded top, and the same square toe.

Ok, let’s be real. The high-end category of such an exquisitely crafted and large chuck of leather boot is going to cost you a bit. So, if you’re not feeling like dropping a casual one and a half thousand, than the mid-market is a perfect place to sit.
When it comes to the contemporary brands bringing us heat in the knee-high boot game, there are plenty. A personal favourite are the uber cool denim pair from Parisian fashion house, Coperni. The Bridge Denim Knee-High Boots have an uber pointed toe, rounded mid and western top make it a boot that really says it all. Perfect to pair with a mini or even a baggy pair of boyfriend jeans tucked in, these boots are freakin’ cool and I won’t hear anything to the contrary.
For an option that’s a little less polarising, the Cosmos Knee-High Boot in Black by CAMILLA AND MARC are an investment piece that will fit into your wardrobe no matter your age. Crafted with a squared toe, mid heel and slightly slouchy silhouette on the calf. This little feature means you’re able to tuck relaxed silhouetted pants in, and aren’t restricted to just super fitted ones.
