Party boots

From gold sequins to crystal-embellished mesh and velvet bow-topped heels, the party boot is this season’s alternative to sky-high heels. Just as high-octane and a hell of a lot more comfortable, here are 25 pairs we love for NYE.

As much as we love a killer heel come party season, they aren’t the most practical in the Siberian weather conditions we’ve been experiencing. Opt instead for one of the many pairs of boots around right now that give just as much glamour on an evening out.

If you’re faithful to the classic black ankle boot, look to Gianvito Rossi velvet Gloria pair which has been given an added sparkle with toe-capped crystals. Great with an LBD and 20 denier tights or a slinky cami dress to add a tough edge. They also work well with loose-fitting denim and an oversized blazer – a look that will see you for date nights, work drinks and girls’ dinners long after the Christmas period has wrapped up.

On the high street, we love Miss KG’s Penelope Boot, again in classic black but finished off with a rhinestone bow – ideal for the festive period.

You won’t have missed the knee-high boot trend that has been everywhere this year, from Paris Texas’s butter-soft slouchy numbers to Saint Lauren’s disco-ready crystal-covered pair. But if you are after something really special that will transform a classic party look, say hello to Alexandre Vauthier’s almost mirror-like gold metallic pair. Pair with an ‘80s-inspired exaggerated shoulder mini in black, cream, or even festive red, for your best Christmas party look yet.

The clue is in the name with these sequin-covered silver pair. FreePeople’s After Midnight boots will rework your favourite party dress into something truly festive.
