There are sock boots, there are over-the-knee sock boots and then on entirely another fashion plane there’s the Fendi A/W 17 Rockoko boot. But while you may not know them by name quite yet, you’ve more than likely spotted them on Instagram by now—understandably, fashion bloggers, editors and the street style set are all obsessed with them.
Beating the likes of Kendall Jenner, Stella Maxwell, Adwoah Aboah plus Gigi and Bella Hadid to the Star of the Show award on the Fendi runway back in February, Karl Lagerfeld’s Rockoko boots are currently on course to win Shoe of the Season too, thanks to a fierce combination of tapered four-inch stiletto heels, sharp pointed toes, super-slick leather plus a ribbed-knit backing. And if all that wasn’t enough, they come in two versions too—an ankle-length sock boot plus an over-the-knee, pull-on style.
What’s more is that it seems the styling options are surprisingly endless. Thanks to their sleek shape and polished finish, the boots look just as incredible layered under jeans and tailored trousers as they do when paired with thigh-skimming miniskirts and dresses—extra style points for retro nostalgia here—or floaty floral maxis. At £1090 for the over-the-knee style and £780 for the Rockoko ankle boot, they may not be cheap, but who doesn’t love a versatile—albeit an OTT statement—investment piece?
