Knee Boots Are the Only Boots I'm Interested in—These 33 Pairs Are Perfect

Year in, year out, when the weather is cold you can always guarantee two things–one, leather will always come back into fashion, and two, you will see me in knee high boots. Why? Undeniably, there's just something about the style of the long boot that instantly elevates any outfit. 

For that reason, knee-highs are, hands down, my favourite boot silhouette, and although they've never officially been out of style, it seems like classic leather knee-high boots are really having a moment of late.

From celebrities to top-tier influencers, everyone is wearing leather knee-high boots, and I don't think that's a coincidence. For one, they're just so chic. It also helps that brands from both the high-street and designer worlds have invested in knee boots in a big way, meaning there's a pair to suit you, whatever your budget.

Leather knee-high boots offer so much outfit milage to be tapped. Right now they work best under knitted dresses or over leggings, but they're also the perfect transitional accessory to take your floatier dresses and slip skirts all the way from winter into spring and autumn. With this in mind, while searching for my own perfect pair, I've curated an edit below of the very best real-leather knee-high boots out there. All of these classic pairs, whether you opt for a flat, low or high heel, will elevate your outfits for years to come (especially as real leather boots only get better with age—just be sure to re-heel them as needed).
