Trend alert: the boots for fall/winter 2021 For the upcoming season there's a challenge between evergreen models and new silhouettes

Next fall/winter we will feel a bit like city cowgirls, with the return of the timeless cowboy boots; like horseriding with the cuissardes both in the flat version and with high heels; and we will face the bad weather thanks to the combat and rain boots, also in colorful and chunky versions to bring joy and not be overwhelmed by gloomy days. Meteoropathic, raise your hand! Let's find out together what are the trends in terms of boots to wear as soon as the first cold arrives.

 

Combat boots

A model that marked last season and that does not seem to want to abandon us is the combat boot. The more aggressive look of the good old amphibian, which last year lived a new life, is now present in Philosophy's collegiate looks in the classic black and lace-up or white shades and with buckles. Or even in the trekking-pop variant by Coach in candy pink and electric blue. If you missed it, the Prada Monolith model we talked about here is still on the podium.

 

Cowboy boots

For the category of eternal returns, which for some have never gone, cowboy boots or Texan boots are back on the catwalk. She chose them to complete the wardrobe looks of the new Parisian by Celine, and proposed them in different variants of leather and colors, Isabel Marant. Online searches for this particular and historic boot model have recently increased by over 60%. It could be said thanks to a Beyoncé effect that wears them alternating them with sneakers in the Ivy Park X adidas looks from the collection called Rodeo. And they will only grow after the Texan mood chosen by celebrities such as JLo, Pharrell Williams and Maluma, who walked the red carpet of the Met Gala on 13 September.

 

Stivali chunky & bold

Chunky, a term that indicates something gross and ugly compared to the usual canons of proportion, which for some seasons has characterized the new oversized shapes of fashion has also taken possession of boots. It is not simply the sole, of which the Flash model by Bottega Veneta is now an icon, but also the texture. The Atelier 03 Rose Edition model by Valentino is already popular on social media, which, as the name suggests, is a rain boot with a texture, let me pass the term, petal. Nothing could be more romantic but rock at the same time, as only a brand like Valentino can combine.

 

Cuissardes

From the French word cuisse,  meaning "thigh", these boots are designed to allow men in the past to be more comfortable on horseback, are definitely among the most feminine models of today. From this season they will not be missing in your wardrobe, as brands like Etro, Ermanno Scervino and Bottega Veneta have well pointed out. High boot, but not necessarily high heel, the 2021-2022 models range from the low to the ground to the kitten heel (Stylight claims a 280% growth in online research oh these type), from the square heel to the tank sole. Perfect with miniskirts as proposed by Mary Quant in the sixties, this year the western vibes also win on this model as the combination with fringes at Etro. Sensual and gritty, on the other hand, is the luxury-dress combo, whether it's in feathers or covered with glitter, and over-the-knee boots by Bottega Veneta.

  

Other categories

We have proceeded with caution, we have been on the classic and on the evergreens, but the autumn-winter 2021/2022 season of boots does not end there. Color, (faux) fur and bold shapes will fulfill the wishes of the most demanding fashionistas! The Louis Vuitton models are already making headlines, with their innovative design, with a flavor reminiscent of the world of horse riding but which winks at the future. Mix of colors and materials resulting from the genius of Nicolas Ghesquière and the collaboration with Fornasetti. It's okay to dare with color but do you prefer simple and clean lines? Blumarine's Y2K-inspired red and pink vinyl will be for you. Color also becomes a psychedelic print like Prada's proposals. The Prada-Simons duo created a Seventies shape with psychedelic prints in fuchsia and pink, red and black, yellow and purple tones. While for the most chilly or for those who love the white weeks Miu Miu dictates the rules of the new mountain style signed by Miuccia.

These boots are made for walking, Nancy Sinatra said, adding a warning, but also to conquer, assert, feel at ease… so, are you ready? Let's go!
