Surprise: This Ankle Boot Trend Is Dead
While we have sandals and strappy heels on the mind (yay, spring!), our ankle boots are still on high rotation. They work for every season, plus you can’t deny how comfortable they are. As excited as we may be to pick up a little something new, the start of a fresh season also means it's time to re-evaluate our past purchases. As one trend comes in, another goes out, which means it's time for a little spring cleaning.
So we enlisted the help of Sara Gaspar, a data analyst for WGSN, to look into ankle boot trends over the past few months and compare them to last year. The results: There are plenty of block-heel boots to shop this season, while wedges have taken a decline. Sara also noted that styles like tasseled and velvet are spiking this year, so there's no better time than now to pick them up.
Read on to check out the numbers, then shop the coolest boots on the market right now.
