These Boots Are Thriving and Now I Need a Pair

Desert boot trend



If there’s one shoe I collect more than any other, it’s boots. While I love boots in any form, I particularly gravitate to comfortable boots that are as easy to walk around in as sneakers with a bit more polish. Perhaps that’s why I’ve been so drawn to the boot trend that I’ve seen popping up recently—a unique shoe that is typically designed with a low heel or wedge, moccasin-like shape, and crafted from soft suede or leather.

A staple in men’s fashion, celebs like Justin Bieber, LeBron James, and David Beckham are all fans of the shoe style. They’re also gaining traction among the fashion set recently, which is no surprise because they’re the perfect comfy-meets-cool shoe to wear in place of sneakers. Ahead, see inspiration for how to wear the boot trend. I guarantee this shoe is about to take off everywhere.

It's no surprise the David Beckham has his boots styled to perfection. Take his lead and wear them with neutral trousers.

On the fashion set:

Desert boot trend with trousers



Speaking of neutrals, here's another chic way to pull them off. Simply add a long trench with a sweater and trousers layered beneath.

Desert boot trend with jeans



Yep, proof that these are the ultimate shoe to pair with knits and jeans.

More proof that they're a foolproof shoe to wear with jeans. Just add a tee and a baseball cap to replicate this look.

I predict that white and cream jeans will be on the rise in the coming months and love the idea of pairing them with beige boots.

Another example of how well they work with white jeans. Choose a puffer in a color that coordinates with the boots.

If you're a fan of the slouchy trousers trend (like me!), this is yet another cool way to style them. I think the addition of the desert boots is such a cool way to wear them in place of heels or boots with a taller heel.

Similar to the outfit above, the key piece here is a pair of relaxed trousers. You can really lean into the aesthetic with an upsized jacket as well.
