5 of the best cult boot trends to know now

Share

Moon boots à la Dua Lipa, glamorous knee-highs fit for the dancefloor and the resurgence of a noughties kitsch classic (move over Crocs, the UGG returns as our cold-weather savior) — this season’s most-wanted boots speak to individual style. From the new releases that took fashion month by storm to the designs blowing up your social feeds, discover 2022’s cult boots — plus all the need-to-know size and fit advice — ahead of shopping your favorite trending pairs on FARFETCH.

For the glamour icon: knee-high boots

 

After spending much of 2021 in slippers, boots fit for partying marked a celebratory move into real-world dressing earlier this year and continue to reign supreme for holiday season. Ultra-glamorous, dancefloor-ready pairs come courtesy of Jimmy Choo’s Blake wedge-heel boots in gold ‘Liquid Metal’ alongside Paris Texas’ pointed-toe designs — a celebrity-approved favorite seen on Chrissy Teigan, Sofia Richie, Yara Shahidi et al. The party boot is one of fall’s most versatile styles when it comes to event dressing, with high-octane knee-highs lending themselves to a host of styling opportunities, from dresses and tailoring to one of 2022’s most-loved pieces: the micro mini skirt.

FIT: Fit true to size. We recommend you get your regular size.

COMFORT: Wear chunky socks or insoles for maximum comfort.

CARE: Coat with water-resistant protection before first wear and store in the box.

For the classic curator: modern ankle boots

 

In a move away from fashion’s current love of Y2K design tropes comes a new wave of minimalist boots that focus on forward-thinking shapes and finishes, rather than seasonal trends. Maison Margiela’s iconic split-toe Tabi boot is a runway staple. Its popularity sky-rocketed this year when Cardi B shared shots of her wearing a white rendition with her 143 million Instagram followers.

 

In another modernized take on the ankle boot, Courrèges’ Nicolas Di Felice applies his fresh take on 1960s design to distinctive silhouettes in go-with-everything colorways. The label’s white leather boots and black vinyl pointed-toe design are two key callouts worth considering if you value timeless design.

COMFORT: Wear with Tabi socks or insoles for maximum comfort.

CARE: Use a waterproof spray to protect the leather upper.

For the modern romantic: cowboy boots

 

Fresh off the back of a summer that saw the return of Glastonbury after a two-year hiatus, this festival-favorite style is still riding high as we move into the colder months. Playing into the #ranchcore moment that emerged in 2022, elevated iterations of the cowboy boot come courtesy of fashion’s hottest names. Classic options from Ganni and Isabel Marant are perfectly attuned to the styling tendencies of the offbeat romantic — voluminous layers and feminine touches à la Molly Goddard and Jacquemus — while artful designs from Khaite and Coperni are best attuned to a more experimental wardrobe.

COMFORT: Wear with socks or insoles for maximum comfort.

CARE: Coat with water-resistant protection before first wear and store in the box.

For the relaxed dresser: UGG boots

 

The UGG boot is another 2000s throwback that’s having a moment. Of course, the new era of tastemakers (see: Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber) photographed in the instantly recognizable design has helped with its resurgence, but it's the brand’s cult collaborations that have solidified it as one of the hottest styles to own right now. UGG has recently partnered with of-the-moment names like Y/Project, Molly Goddard, Telfar and KNWLS, with the latter’s designers, Charlotte Knowles and Alexandre Arsenault, creating their own UGG designs for their brand’s spring/summer 2023 collection. The Classic Mini and Flatform Double-Strap designs are among the key iterations trending right now.

 

UGG BOOTS SIZING:

FIT: Fits true to size. We recommend you get your regular size.

COMFORT: Wear with chunky socks for optimum warmth.

CARE: Spray with a suede protector before first wear.

For the tastemaker: moon boots

 

This has been a year of curveball footwear trends — see the Croc’s revival and the return of the UGG — and moon boots have emerged as fall’s cult star. The retro, ultra-padded skiwear staple gained popularity in the early 1970s with the emergence of après-ski and made its way off-piste in the 2000s thanks to Paris Hilton. This year, its reappearance was cemented by a host of celebrities and editors including Lily Collins, Madonna and ‘British Vogue’ editor Julia Hobbs. The OG Italian après-ski brand, aptly named Moon Boot, is (unsurprisingly) delivering some of the season’s most sought-after pairs, most notably its signature Icon style. Each pair spans a range of sizes, with the plush foam lining designed to adapt to the size and shape of your foot.

 

MOON BOOTS SIZING:

FIT: Each pair runs a little smaller than traditional shoe scales so it's recommended to go up a size — if you’re usually an EU 38, we recommend opting for the EU 39-41.

COMFORT: Wear with chunky socks for maximum comfort.

CARE: Use a soft, damp cloth with mild detergent and warm water to remove marks.
