My personal belief when it comes to boots: one can never have too many. Needless to say, as soon I get wind of a new style suddenly showing up everywhere, I want to be the first to know about it. Which conveniently leads into the trend we’re discussing today: slouchy boots.
Admittedly the slouchy boot already had a bit of a shining moment a few years ago, thanks in part to Anthony Vaccarello’s Parisian sleek A/W 17′ Saint Laurent collection. Featuring hyperbolically slouchy patent leather boots styled with flashy mini dresses, that runway show alone was properly responsible for 90% of slouchy boot sales in 2018. Since then the silhouette has quietly faded into the background, with others rising in its place—cue the Bottega Veneta puddle boots and extreme platforms—but my editor intuition is telling me the trend is due for another comeback this year.
Now that slouchy boots are gaining some momentum, it’s only natural to look for the best pairs out there. Whether you’re new to the slouchy boot wave, or just need an excuse to add more boots to your collection (FYI we’re not judging), I perused every corner of the internet to bring you the ones worth buying now. From under $100 to over $1000, go ahead and take your pick.
