Ankle boots have long been a model-off-duty staple, and sock boots are one particular iteration the runway pack favors. From the Yeezy rendition that put the fashion-forward style on the map to Stuart Weitzman's classic take that has a celebrity cult following, sock boots are here to stay. Most sock boots come with a hefty price tag (the two former styles sell for over a thousand dollars and $575 and up, respectively), but leave it to Hailey Baldwin to introduce us to a pair that costs less than $200.
Baldwin is a fan of the Tony Bianco Diddy Stretch Bootie, black pointed-toe sock boots that sell for $161—hardly the tax of a new pair of Yeezys. The model first debuted her pair in July and has stepped out in the ankle boots twice in this past week alone. Most recently, she paired the sleek footwear with an unlikely ensemble of an oversize graphic tee and loose-fitting khaki pants rolled up to show off her boots. Two days earlier, Baldwin attended Karlie Kloss's 25th birthday wearing a decidedly less casual getup—a modern evening look made up of a long gray silk slip dress and her go-to sock boots.
