KNEE high boots make you feel fabulous and will add that extra edge to your outfit.
They’re boots that usually rise to the knee, originally only worn by the likes of horse-riders and fishermen – but then the 60s and 70s saw them stride into the fashion world…
There’s something about knee-high boots that just oozes sex appeal.
We’ve been hooked since day one – who could forget Julia Roberts’ iconic leather babies in Pretty Woman?
Every autumn and winter, fashion’s love for them comes back around. Like florals in spring, you can rely on knee-high boots to see you through every autumn/winter season.
However, ever since Demna Gvasalia debuted his thigh high ‘Knife’ boot for Balenciaga back in 2017, they’ve shapeshifted to become less seasonal – both Ariana Grande and Rihanna wear them all year round.
They’re the shoe that can make any ensemble look just that little bit more sassy – whether you’re going to work, out shopping or for cocktails with the girls.
But, just because they’re a versatile investment doesn’t mean you have to pay over the odds for a pair.
In fact, we’ve rounded up the cheapest knee high boots around right here:

What trousers do you wear with knee high boots?
For some of you fashion gurus, jeans in boots will already be an everyday look, so how to make it a little more “fashion”?
It’s about upgrading either the boot or the trouser element; try switching the jeans for a smarter, tailored style and tucking into your favourited chunky heel boots.
Are over the knee boots appropriate for work?
Wearing knee-high boots as your workwear accessory depends on where you work.
If your work culture is not that liberal, then it is best not to mess around with these trendy boots.
But, if you are working at a place where you can dress however you want – go for a good pair of leather or suede over-the-knee boots.
What do I wear with knee high boots?
Pair your knee high boots with jeans, a white tee and a leather jacket for a chic, relaxed outfit.
Alternatively, throw on a knitted khaki dress with grey suede knee highs, and you’re ready.
