Fashion devotees know that the Anna Wintour seal of approval isn’t easy to come by, so when the EIC of Vogue steps out in multiple iterations of a similar style, we take note. Case in point, Wintour’s go-to shoe for all of fashion month: knee-high crocodile-embossed heeled leather boots, which she wore in New York, Paris, London, and Milan.
Of course, one doesn’t amass a slew of signature footwear overnight. This is a tried and true trend for Wintour, who has sported these types of boots (routinely paired with long floral dresses and statement overcoats) for decades. While of course, she has an array of hues at her disposal, we particularly love the two pairs of rich burgundy and reptile-inspired patterns pictured below.
Right now, at the end of the winter season, is a great time to buy boots—ideally on sale—for the year ahead. Keep scrolling for some authentic, AW-approved outfit inspiration, plus our favorite knee-high leather croc-embossed boots to shop now.
