We have gone through so many phases of Boots: Military, Chelsea, cleated soles, you name it. Each one is versatile and timeless, which is all you could really ask for in a shoe. But I think it’s time to bring a new silhouette into the crease, and it just might be the boldest Shoe trend this fall. Appearance: the overknee boots.

Over the knee boots are on the rise and it’s about damn time. Celebs like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have recently been spotted rocking this style, making it clear why you need to add a pair (or three) to your fall wardrobe right this second.

These two fashion icons never shy away from statement shoes, and neither should you!

Although she might appear Daunting to wear at first, they’re as practical as any other pair of boots you already own. They just hit higher on your leg, which honestly comes in handy when it’s chilly outside. Stylish and functional? You are the full package.

But here’s the thing: you can’t just pick just any pair. Overknee boots are meant to be showstoppers. Because of their height, they naturally draw everyone’s attention, so make sure you pick the ones that will make an impact.

Slip on a pair with razor-sharp, pointed toes to rule the room, or try a relaxed profile for a relaxed look that allows for more scope. When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a pair of platforms. The popularity of this style continues to rise thanks to the Y2K renaissance, which is still going strong. If you can’t stand high heels, choose those with cleated soles or those that are flat and exude a preppy vibe.

Wondering which style to buy? Well, I’ve done the research for you and found 17 of the most daring pairs of over the knee boots that should go straight to your shopping cart.
