No matter how far in the past you thought a trend was, when the likes of Balenciaga, Chanel, The Row, J.W.Anderson, and—let’s be real—Zara all simultaneously begin to endorse it, it makes you rethink your stance. Such is the case with the topic of today’s post: mid-calf boots, which are part of the fall lineup for not just the above brands, but many more. Could this signify the return of the trend? If you ask us, all signs point to yes. Unsurprisingly, Chanel already has the bloggers on board, and we think it’s only a matter of time until the rest of the fashion world follows.

So if you’re looking to be ahead of the curve this fall—which, if you’re reading Who What Wear, is probably the case—shop our picks of the best mid-calf boots at every price point below.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
