These Anti-Trend Boots are Still as Popular Now as They Were Years 6 Years Ago

The Olsen twins' label The Row is responsible for many of the most sought-after items in the world (remember the banana bag, the naked strappy sandals and the bow-embellished mules?) but none stand out as much as the iconic zip-front chunky boots have quickly become the most in-demand boots back in 2019. 

These ankle boots have had quite the endorsement, with the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Zoë Kravitz as fans who have worn them on heavy rotation since they first landed on the fashion scene. The £1,450 boots of course sold out in record speed and become one of the most-searched items on second-hand sites such as eBay and Vestiaire Collective. Although they've been restocked multiple times on sites such as Matchesfashion, Net-a-Porter and Harvey Nichols, they get added to baskets so quickly its been hard to get them for the last few years. But the good news? They're currently in stock in all sizes. 

Love the look of these thick tread ankle boots but now willing to splurge four-figures on your footwear? Fear not, as so many other brands have very good iterations for a lot less. Keep scrolling to shop the best zip-up boots, no matter your budget.
