As quickly as the trend cycle moves these days, there are certain pieces that have moved out of the trend category and into the staple category. From a leather jacket to Levi's classic 501 jeans, certain items have withstood the coming and going of trends and can now be officially considered timeless. This also rings true in the shoe department. For example, Stuart Weitzman's Nudist Heels are no longer reserved strictly for red carpets.
In the boot department, there are quite a few styles that have also achieved this status and are now viewed as timeless—iconic, if you will. From the classic ankle boots that can be worn with everything to the combat boots almost every celebrity on the planet owns, below are the four pairs of everyday boots that everyone should have in their wardrobe.
Sam Edelman Petty Boots
The OG ankle boots that go with everything from jeans to dresses have reached icon status. Virtually every fashion girl has owned these at some point in their life (and probably still does), and they show no sign of fading. The low block heel gives you just a bit of height while still being comfortable, and the short ankle height makes them incredibly versatile.
When you think of Chelsea boots, chances are you're picturing the ACNE Studios Jensen Boots. With their signature pointed toe and slight heel, these are the ankle boots nearly everyone pulls out to pair with their skinny jeans the moment fall approaches.
Stuart Weitzman has many signature shoe styles, with more than one of them being over-the-knee boots. But the flat 5050 boots with a stretchy back have become synonymous with winter. Fashion girls break these out year after year to look chic and stay warm during the colder months, and that's not changing anytime soon.
The number one combat boot style has always been (and likely always will be) Dr. Martens. After they skyrocketed to icon status in the '90s, here we are almost 30 years later and fashion girls are as obsessed as ever. Virtually every celebrity owns a pair, and they serve up constant outfit inspiration, so these boots will always be top of mind.
