Black boots are great, but—if we’re being honest—snakeskin boots are way, way cooler. And while visions of male classic rockers might come to mind—David Bowie, Keith Richards, Steven Tyler—the style has had a high-fashion makeover in recent months. Gucci showcased knee-high python styles on its Fall 2014 runway, cool-girl label Vetements had models wearing a handful of different colors and styles for Spring ’15, and Rag & Bone, Isabel Marant, and Chloé have each produced their own unique reptilian take.
Since then, a parade of It-girls and street-style stars have been swapping out solid booties for snakeskin—and we’re loving it.
