Long Boots

Below-the-knee length is the keyword


Long boots have been worn by an increasing number of people since the 2019/2020 Autumn-Winter season. Last season, boots that looked like short boots but were actually connected as socks emerged as a trend, and a new form of boots emerged. The 2020-2021 Autumn/Winter season saw the popularity of these boots accelerate even more than last season, and they became a real breakthrough. The most popular boots were the long boots that are "below-the-knee".



In particular, long rubber-soled boots with a slightly heavy feel are popular on the streets. These long boots were introduced in the collections of luxury brands such as Bottega Veneta, Celine, and Prada, and have attracted renewed attention.



Mainstream heels are flat or chunky heels of 3 to 5cm, which are completely different from the long boots that were popular in the past. Chunky heels have a good leg-lengthening effect and are easy to walk in. These are boots with comfort elements as well.



The most impressive coordination on the street was the combination with the "mini bottom". By showing some skin, you can create a healthy and relaxed feeling, and also create a gap from the heavy feeling of the boots. In past years, there have been few street styles that show skin in the fall and winter. However, with the popularity of long boots, it has started to increase, and has even taken root. Of course, "long boots with a long bottom" is also a popular combination, as it was last season.



There were not many of these boots in the 2020-2021 Autumn/Winter season, but next season, we expect to see a lot of attention to the more rough and "boots like boots". It will be interesting to see how long boots, which have become a staple winter item after several years of absence, will change in the future.
