As the temperatures drop and the pumpkin spice lattes appear back on coffee shop menus, the dark nights and winter chills are officially upon us, but not all is gloomy. Your favourite winter boots are back and knee-high has made its classic return. Tis the season to get out your chunky knitwear, 40-denier tights and a statement pair of boots. Contrary to its wardrobe counterpart the leather ankle boot, the classic winter staple is adding an injection of sophistication and extra warmth this season. 

While knee-high boots will never go out of style, it seems they are hotter than ever this Autumn/Winter 2022, just look at the array of knee-high covered legs that stomped on the streets of fashion week. Whether it’s a pair of sequin-embellished platforms for party season or a classic pair of square-toed must-haves, knee-high boots are this year’s winter footwear of choice. Just look to Kendall Jenner who can’t seem to get enough.

So, whether you’re looking for a pair to elongate your legs and stride around the city nights in or you’re looking for a daily comfortable boot with a little extra coverage, we’ve got you covered. Shop our edit of the season’s best knee-high boots to add some serious style to your winter wardrobe, from high-street comfies to high-end statements, we’ve thought of it all.
