Everyone knows the best way to kick off a new season is in a killer pair of shoes. And since the next season rounding the bend is winter, we’ve decided the best shoes for the job are boots. Because, well, it’s cold outside. Do we really need more of a reason than that?
We’re big boot people here at StyleCaster—and by that we mean we love boots, not that we exclusively love big boots. (Though they definitely have a place in our hearts.)
Ankle boots, stiletto boots and over-the-knee boots have dominated our wardrobes over the last few years, but there’s a new boot on our radar for 2018, and it’s absolutely imperative that you know about it.
We’ll give you a hint: It’s got whiskers.
OK, it doesn’t actually have whiskers. But it is a kitten…heel. (We promise to bring a new sense of humor to 2019. We’re just tired.)
Kitten heels, which thoroughly pervaded the style scene this summer, are back in a new iteration this cold-weather season: They’re boots. And kitten heel boots offer all the comfort of standard kitten heels—with a little winter flair.
They’ll add some much-needed weight to any outfit, complement even the daintiest of holiday dresses and keep your feet warm in the process. Win/win? We certainly think so.
Ahead, you’ll find 17 pairs of kitten heel boots we’ve already fallen madly in love with. Equal parts chic and practical, the kitten heel boot is the statement staple literally everyone needs this winter—stock up.
