The Ankle Boot Trend Kanye West Has Actually Made Happen

You could say that we love a good ankle boot. Whether that's finding the perfect black boot or rounding up the 21 best in the world right now, we've clearly got a thing for the wardrobe staple. However, there is one particular type that has come to our attention: the sock boot. Thanks to Kanye West's Yeezy (yes, we know) the tight-fitting ankle boot is now high on the fashion agenda.

With Kim Kardashian West (she does get first dibs, after all), Emily Ratajkowski and Hailey Baldwin all donning said shoe, it means that there's clearly a trend, erm, afoot. Which brings us nicely to this shopping gallery we've put together of the coolest sock boots around right now. Surprisingly, you can actually still buy the Yeezy boots too, but, just in case they sell out, there are still some other options available. 

Click through our gallery of Kardashian West, Ratajkowski and Baldwin in the infamous sock boots and where to shop similar styles right now.

Style Notes: Proving that boots don't have to be for the winter, pair yours with denim cut-offs and a simple summer off-the-shoulder top.

Style Notes: Keep your boots on display by rolling up your skinny jeans to display the full sock effect.
