The best ankle boots are the ones that capture the fashion zeitgeist yet serve all the qualities of a long-standing classic in your wardrobe. You really can have it all—when it comes to shoes, at least. And while you might believe that this piece of footwear is solely (pun intended) reserved for the autumn and winter months, start getting used to the idea that they make a perfect piece for your transitional wardrobe as well.
But it's not just us. From the runway to the streets, the coolest girls are wearing ankle boots in an unapologetic metallic finish (any colour will do) that feature heels with a directional shape or kitten heels. Then there are the pristine suede booties or the sock-boot trend resurgence—whichever direction lifts your spring fashion game, we've concisely documented the best boots to buy now for all budgets.
