The Boot Trends That Are Going to Be Big This Season

You'd be hard pressed to find someone (fashion fanatic or otherwise) who doesn't have an item of clothing from Zara in their wardrobe, from royals to celebrities and influencers to editors. The Spanish retailer has developed a reputation for itself over the years for creating affordable, trend-led pieces and contemporary basics that can act as the cornerstones of any wardrobe. Zara's mass-market appeal doesn't end at clothing though. The brand's footwear is equally as coveted, and this winter in particular, we've spotted quite a number of expensive-looking boots in the seasonal collection, many of which we predict will sell out in no time. 

This season, the brand has once again aced the concept of timeless classics with its boot selection, whilst also creating pairs that are bound to elevate any outfit going. And I'm not just talking about chunky soles, although these are key once again this year. Amongst the standouts of the tall styles are Western styles, suede pairs, stud detailing, sculptured heels and chunky soles. Prefer ankle boots? Zara's new-in section is all about high-heeled boots with pointy toes, and they remind me of pairs we've most likely all worn over the years with jeans and a nice top. 

However, the brand also has something for those of us who are feeling a little more adventurous. I may be downplaying this slightly, as Zara is backing some of the most eye-catching boots we've seen on the high street, from flame-adorned knee-highs to sequin-encrusted pairs that have me planning my next night out. 

No matter your preference, keep scrolling to shop the four boot trends Zara is championing this winter that you can undoubtedly continue to wear well into spring next year.

1. Western

If you're looking past the trends and seeking a pair you can wear for years to come, this is it.

These boots were made for… showing off at every opportunity.

These feel very Parisian to me—which of course means they're a winner.


The metal toe-cap detail makes these look so expensive.

Feel your outfit's a little too boring? Nothing this standout pair can't fix. 

Once the secret's out, these statement stompers are guaranteed to sell out fast.

2. Chunky Soles

These are giving strong Matrix vibes, but in the best way possible.

This minimal style looks really premium for the price.

Tired of relying on black footwear? Try a dark brown shade that's just as easy to style.

If you're going to buy just one pair of thick-soled boots, these fit the bill perfectly.

3. Pointed Knee-Highs

I think we can all agree that these boots have the wow-factor.

I've been obsessed with knee-high boots lately, and this is the next pair on my wish list.

These feel traditional and cool in equal measure.

Perhaps the chicest pair of metallic boots out there right now. 

4. Platforms

These platform skyscrapers are gorgeous, if you can handle the height. 

I'm so excited about the '90s-boots renaissance.
