Ever since stretchy, athletic-sock-inspired boots were debuted at Vetements and Balenciaga, the sock boot trend has been a sartorial staple for many fashion enthusiasts. Remember when the Internet attempted to create their DIY version of Kim Kardashian‘s Yeezy boots?
People re-created the boots by slipping a pair of socks over shoes with pointed heels. Yes, it’s as simple as that. But more than anything, it’s the silhouette that makes the actual sock boot look edgy.
Luckily, you can rock the streetwear shoe trend of the season without breaking the bank (or getting disappointed with DIYs) with these high street pieces:
1. Colorblock Sock Boots, PHP 2,900, Forever 21
This pair looks straight out of a Vetements lookbook with its pastel hues both on the heel and the sock itself. Keep the muted, pale palette and match these with powder blue frayed jeans and a simple yellow graphic tee to complement the heel of the boot. Casual but striking.
2. Sock Ankle Boots With Shiny Mid Heels, PHP 3,527, Bershka
Go utilitarian with these boots and wear it with an oversized outwear à la Rihanna or elevate it with a blazer dress like Kim Kardashian.
3. Striped High Heel Sock-Style Ankle Boots, PHP 2,795, ZARA
These deep wine high-heeled boots are accented with contrasting stripes and square cut toes. For a laid-back but sultry ensemble, pair this with matching red vinyl trousers.
4. Pink Velvet Perspex Heeled Sock Boots, PHP 1,134, Missguided
Velvet is still the fabric of the season and it will probably never go out of style. These blush boots with clear heels are a great statement footwear to match with your favorite oversized tee like Bella Hadid.
5. HOLI Leather Sock Boots, PHP 5,166, Topshop
For stylish queens who like to keep a neutral palette, this pair would be great addition to your wardrobe. Wear this with a structured top and a textured midi skirt for an instant cool-girl look.
