Kendall Jenner Wore the Boot Trend That's Due for a Comeback

There are some shoe trends that become very popular, peak, then go away for a decade or more. Others only fade away for a few seasons before making a comeback as big as before—if not even bigger. Time will tell if the comeback we're referring to here will eclipse the cowboy-boot craze of 2018, but so far, there's evidence that proves they'll be everywhere again. 

For starters, the F/W 21 runways of heavy hitters like Isabel Marant were covered with them, retailers' new arrivals include tons of them at a variety of price points, and very influential celebs like Kendall Jenner are already wearing them even though we're in the midst of the dog days of summer.

Jenner was recently photographed out in Malibu wearing loose cream-colored jeans, a cropped tank top, and two-tone vintage Western boots. We love the idea of wearing them under loose jeans, which is a change from previous seasons when they were often worn with skinny jeans and straight-leg styles. If you're intrigued, read on to secure a pair for yourself before fall comes out of nowhere (or just start wearing them now à la Jenner).
