When every brand from Saint Laurent and Gucci to Zara and Topshop is endorsing a trend, it’s time to put aside your biases and get on board. That’s exactly how we feel about the resurgence of platform boots, something we honestly didn’t see coming but are willing to get behind—and not just because they’re comfortable. While hunting for the perfect fall ankle boots recently, we realized that many of our favorite brands have made them look fresh and forward again with updated styles, textures, and silhouettes. (Not to mention the whole Vetements phenomenon.) So in short, while you may not want to dust off your old pair, you may be interested in some of the new styles for this year.
