Call it nostalgia, but we’ve found ourselves coveting lace-up boots that are pretty much identical to the ones we wore in the late 90s and early noughties. Mostly these fall into the uber-practical footwear category, with tough, rain-resistant rubber soles. So much so that you could stomp through the wettest of city puddles and not feel it. Yet we’re also drawn to pointed, more feminine varieties, such as this Tabitha Simmons pair, reminiscent of films such as Practical Magic and The Craft. Bottom line: lace-up boots are having a moment. They are as versatile as they are cool – you can add them to anything from floral dresses to tiered skirts for an instant style hit. And, once you tire of the nostalgia, we guarantee due to their practical nature, you’ll wear them for seasons to come.
