Not that there's anything wrong with timeless black or brown boots (they’re wardrobe essentials, after all), or even the rise of their bright-white counterpart, but if there’s one boot color that has been seriously underrated over the years, it’s gray. We know what you’re thinking: Why go with gray when you have the other neutral hues in your closet? Well, due to the fact that outfits with gray boots have flown deeply under the radar, they’ll naturally serve as a refreshing take on any of your winter outfits. Not to mention the color is just as versatile as any of your other go-to hues while giving your ensembles a softer feel—all the more reason to add them to your closet if you ask us.
If you’re still not convinced, we took it upon ourselves to gather the chicest It girl–approved looks featuring the boot style, and we’re telling you now, they’re good. Check them out below and get ready to start shopping!
