15 Red Hot Pairs of Scarlet Boots

Fashionistas agree that the red boot is the must have foot accessory for this season. They are so much hipper than white boots!

Red boots stand out in a sea of black and brown shoes, like a red blossom in a vase of white roses. Rather than white belts and boots, red leather accessories are trending in 2018. But you don’t need a stylist. Here are 15 amazing pairs of red ankle and knee boots listed in order of expense from high to low. The ankle boots pictured at the top are from Fenwick UK.

This year the most coveted style of boot is the heeled sock boot, with a pointy toe pump and a clingy ankle that stops at the calves. But block heels, kitten heels, patent leather and military boots are also popping. Click on the links to shop online and read more about each product.

15 Pairs of Red Boots

1. Balenciaga

BALENCIAGA red boots

The Balenciaga Knife Booties ($1,190) are a sharp spandex style sock boot made from a shiny jersey material that is inspired by 80’s sportswear. They have a very thin “ice pick” heel.

2. Fendi

FENDI red boots

A baby cow and sheep had to die in order to make these Fendi Sock Heeled Ankle Boots ($1,100), because the lining is 100% lambskin, and the outer is 100% calfskin. But they look like socks!


YEEZY red boots

The YEEZY Burgundy Knit Sock Boots ($995) are a more neutral oxblood color. They are actually made of leather and textiles in Italy though. The boots are part of the Season 5 collection. Notice how the model layered hers over sweatpants and a crewneck — like Kim K. does.

4. Isabel Marant


The Isabel Marant Luliana Ankle Boot ($920), one of the labels most favorited designs, is now available in red leather. They recommend wearing them with a ruffled skirt and sweater.
