Ankle Socks Boot Trends / Hybrid Boots of Socks & Shoes

There’s a new skintight silhouette in season for autumn winter but don’t worry, this one won’t have you furiously downloading a Joe Wicks waist training plan. Instead, your feet are the focus. Say hello to the sock boot, the key footwear trend to be seen hot-footing around in this season. Sure, the name isn’t sexy but trust us the resulting shape is especially with its leg lengthening, second skin effect. Just think of them as a fusion of contouring for your ankles and body-con for your arches.

This sock/ shoe hybrid first started trending, thanks to Demna Gvasalia, the creative director of both Vetements and Balenciaga who sent slick versions dubbed ‘knife booties’ with their pointy, sharp heel, down the runways. In acid pink or green, siren red and even floral printed, they quickly became something of a footwear fetish and it didn't take long for other brands to follow suit. From Stuart Weitzman's 'Clinger Bootie' snapped on Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez to Kanye West's 'Yeezy' as seen on Emily Ratajowski, and a string of fast fashion chains churning out copy-cat versions, the cult appeal of the sock boot is now well underway.
