Black Boots, Who? 21 Red Pairs That Are Coming in Hot (Sorry, Had To)

If there’s one color that’s simply too timeless to be deemed a trend, it’s red. The bold hue may have a tendency to enter and exit the trend cycle every few years or so—if you remember, 2017 was big year for red—but overall it’s just too classic to ever go “out”. There are plenty of ways to style the hue, from handbags to tonal outfits, but I’ll let you in on a secret: There’s one iteration that I personally think is the superior way to wear it, and that is red boots. Regardless of trend status, I’ve always had a soft spot for red boots. They’re bold, they’re iconic (so many Halloween costumes that go with them FYI), and they bring a whole lot of look.

Whether you’re looking for an ankle boot situation or a statement over-the-knee look, a cool western-inspired pair or lug-sole Chelsea boots, the options abound. If you’re understandably skeptical about straying away from your trusted black boots in favor of the statement that red boots can make, then keep reading—I’ve rounded up the 21 best pairs to shop right now. 

Lug-sole Chelsea boots are not exactly a new trend this year but this red color makes them feel especially fresh.

These are EmRata-approved. Need I say more?

Nobody does “weird” shoes quite like Bottega Veneta. I don’t know how to feel, but I’m definitely intrigued.

These are actually much more verstaile than you may think.

Zara always get is.

The girls on my TikTok feed are shaking right now.

Yes to this square-toe situation.

These will look so cool with straight-leg jeans and a leather jacket.

Victoria Beckham has made red boots part of her signature look for years, particularly this peep-toe style.

If Khaite says it’s cool, you listen.

The black version of these is sitting in my cart, but now I think I might need the red pair instead…

One of the coolest pairs I’ve seen in a while.

Whatever Prada does, I follow.

Pro tip: bright red and hot pink are two unexpected colors that actually look excellent together.

Wear these with everything from mini skirts to skinny jeans tucked in.

I’ll admit these are more on the brown side of the colo spectrum, but I needed you to see them.

So wearable yet stylish.

No one will believe you spent less than $100 on them.

To really make an impact, wear head-to-toe red. It’s more wearable than you’d think—trust me.

An investment pair if I’ve ever seen one.

Wildly comfortable.

Mix it up from your black ankle boots from time to time.

When it comes to red boots, you can’t go wrong with a classic pointed-toe silhouette.

Exhibit B.

This darker shade is a good starting off point if you’re emotionally tied to black boots like I am.

Speaking of boots, here’s the fall trend I think everyone will *actually* wear this season.
