Ankle boots have been around in one form or another for centuries: think of the opulent ankle boots of Victorian England or the prairie-style lace-ups in 19th-century America. Since those times, ankle boots have come in and out of favour and taken many styles and forms over the years. But now, ankle boots are enjoying a huge revival as style stars! Ankle boots are all the rage on the runways and the streets, in every imaginable design, colour and style.
Ankle boots are the perfect combination of boot and shoe. With a traditional boot shape at the toe and instep, ankle boots then stop at or near the ankle bone, giving the overall shape a unique look that is simultaneously classic and trendy. Try ankle boots by Christian Louboutin, Giuseppe Zanotti, or Lanvin for the ultimate style! Ankle boots come in slip-on, side-zip and lace-up styles--and more. Some are modern and sleek, while others have a more rugged, sporty appearance, with some even sporting a built-in sock-type cuff. Heel heights range from flat to a few inches. You can find dressy styles of ankle boots or casual styles perfectly appropriate for weekend fun.
Ankle boots are the perfect footwear for the active, modern woman. First of all, they're super comfortable. Since we're not talking about skinny stiletto heels, ankle boots allow their wearer to be on her feet, run around town and lead an active life without wishing she could kick off her shoes. In addition, they are the perfect complement to popular skinny jeans, cords and cropped slim trousers. They even look modern and chic when paired with dresses and skirts: These boots are truly style staples that look great with many outfits and are versatile and fun!
