This season, we’re seeing continued appreciation for knee-high boots. The sleek, sophisticated look is being reinvented to make the silhouette more exciting and fashion-forward, whether it’s with a leather knee-high boot or a Western silhouette with an equestrian vibe. We’ve loved the knee-high shape for a long time, and now it’s back with a distinctly 2023 twist, with everything from a ’90s-era platform to a metallic, liquid-like finish. If you’re looking for something different from your classic over-the-knee boots that just may provide a bigger flash of skin due to the shorter height, these are the shoes we’re shopping right now. Fall is here, and it’s time to break out the boots.
These 11 knee-high styles deserve your attention this season. We like them paired with minidresses, longer silhouettes, perhaps with a slit, and even with pants tucked in. They’re the perfect footwear choice for that in-between weather this season is distinctly known for. Our particular favorites include a dark brown mahogany cowboy boot that’s elevated and chic, a sparkly pair that’s perfect for a night out, and a flat riding boot that’s so timeless and elegant. With equestrian fashion coming back in full force, picking up a flat black knee-high boot is also a very good idea.
