Padded boots are the unlikely trend of the season and honestly, I’m here for it. Practical, comfortable and on-trend? What could be better?
The puffer, pillow-like boots are trending this season thanks to Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director of Louis Vuitton. The boots debuted on the brand’s spring summer 2021 Paris runway, and we’re seeing the trend slowly pop up everywhere.
There’s no doubt that these are unexpected, but their appeal is more about its cosy functionality than its style, which can only be described as a puffer jacket for your feet.
The padded boots’ popularity has since skyrocketed with celebrities like Sophie Turner, Florence Pugh, and Gigi Hadid spotted wearing them.
Soon after stars started wearing them, Instagram and Tiktok’s stylish influencers were filling our feeds with them and showing us how to style them for winter. Because of the shoe’s questionable look, the comment section has generally been filled with people wondering why they’re even trending in the first place.
But who doesn’t want to be a little more comfortable when they’re on their feet all day long? Compared to other footwear, padded boots are literally pillows for your feet.
If you’re looking for other pillow-like, comfortable boots for winter, we’ve got you. And if you’re not into LV’s pillow boot design, there are other cosy styles too.
