The knee-high boot is a non-negotiable when it comes to staple pieces we need in our autumnal and winter wardrobes.

After seasons of stopping short and opting for ankle grazing cuts, tall boots are on the rise—and it’s not hard to see why.

Looking to the runways of Paris Fashion Week, knee and thigh-high boots proved a prominent yet versatile feature.

Bottega Veneta opted for textured and metallic styles that proved the tallest of boots could be pared with any hemline.

Meanwhile, Hermès showed us how to style the knee-high cut with a mini to elongate the leg but also keep warm, layering not one, but two pairs of woollen hosiery.

Perfect for pairing with a mini dress, under a denim maxi skirt or midi style, the knee high boot proves a versatile piece to add to your wardrobe from autumn through to spring. 

Whether you’re looking to style the shoe over jeans, layered with a mini or under a free-flowing midi, we’ve rounded up the best boots to shop now.
