This Ankle Boot Trend Adds Height Without Heels

At 16 years old and already 5'9", Kaia Gerber clearly has a height advantage on her side, but that doesn't mean she's opposed to subtly adding a few more inches to her statuesque frame. Gerber just arrived at her first Paris Fashion Week with mom Cindy Crawford, and she brought along one of her (and many other celebs') new favorite ankle boot styles: combat boots. We recently reported that combat boots are the ankle boot style fashion girls like Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, and a slew of other models and street style stars are into right now, and Gerber proves why with her latest outfit. Thanks to the thick soles, they add height sans heels, they bring a cool edge to flirtier pieces (like Gerber's Réalisation dress), and they make any outfit look especially of-the-moment. What more could you want in fall shoes?
