Street style has never been the same ever since Balenciaga released its knife over-the-knee boots, featured in the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter 2017 runway shows. The $1,850 spandex boots which were inspired by 80s sportswear and fetishism, are shiny and stretchable and have a very thin heel with no zip at all.
There is no doubt that thigh-high boots have been kicking around for a few seasons now, but lately, sock boots are taking the trend to a whole new level. Spotted on tons of street style stars and celebrities from Toke Makinwa to Salma Hayek, Balenciaga’s over-the-knee spandex boots even made an appearance on the Met Gala red carpet.
It seems style stars can’t get enough of these boots as they have remained popular since early 2017 and we can see why. The super stylish pair have a high sex appeal and provide the perfect warmth and elegance needed on a cold and maybe not so cold day (Toke Makinwa shared a photo of herself rocking hers this Summer in New York).
The best way to rock spandex boots like these is to opt for a fun and sassy style while maintaining a classy and sophisticated look at the same time.
