They say the devil is in the details. When it comes to boots, you have to look at the toes — no, really — and make sure they’re square.
This unassuming detail makes any pair look insanely chic. It’s like the background character that emerges as the strongest at the end of the movie (the main character is, of course, the pointed toe).
After the style dominated spring summer in the form of androgynous sandals and loafers, it continues to set the tone for autumn winter through boots.
If you do decide to jump on the trend, you’ll be happy to know that the options are seemingly endless right now. Bottega Veneta, Chloe, and Off-White are just a few designer brands carrying the style.
But you don’t have to splurge on a pair just to get the look, of course. The high street is also rife with selections that are just as good.
Zara continues to have our backs by giving us a pair of leather wedge ankle boots in a bright red — perfect for this year’s autumn and winter.
In need of a more classic option? Charles & Keith delivers with a pair of dark brown stitch-trim slip-on calf boots.
Looking for something that’s even easier on the pocket? ASOS is always the best place to visit. There’s a classic pair from the e-tailer that has nice heels and comes in leather.
There are so many more, so I took it upon myself to list down the best square toe boots I could find. You can find my top picks below.
