Trends: Combat Boots

21 Jul, 2020

We love a high-heel for being able to dress up your look and make your legs seem a million miles long, but when a trend comes along that’s one-part fashion pack approved and one-part practical, we just have to get on board. Enter - the Combat Boot, the flat style that will keep your ankles warm and look oh so good while doing so.


Now this rebellious style may appear to be tough on the outside, but we promise you that styling this new wardrobe-hero is super easy. Think oversized blazers, denim and faux leather anything (shorts, jumpsuit or jacket) and you’re ready to step out in serious style.  


But what about ‘something feminine with something tough’ we hear you ask? While that adage will always hold true, we’re loving the more paired back minimalist looks that feel so much more achievable.


Now that you know how the style them, let our #TBGirls help you decide on which pair of Combat Boots you’re investing in this winter.

Lace ups

Now we don’t like playing favourites but if we had to pick our combat boot of the season it would have to be either the tall Seattle or it’s shorter but definitely not lesser cousin Sloane. Their chunky platform soles provide a little extra height (and grip) and the laces add a utilitarian edge that looks super cool.

Pull on

For slip on and go style cue Stomp. We love a boot that features a pull tab and gusset as they’re so easy to take on and off. Think of these as the no frills version of the Combat boot that would suit those trying the trend for the first time. Available in milk and black - the monochromatic colours will never date.

Sky High

Who said Combat Boots are reserved for ankles only? We dare you to go long with Genius. Featuring a stretch leather look fabric, consider parting ways with your pants and styling these with a mini dress or bike shorts with an oversized jacket. Not for the faint of heart but oh boy, trust us when we say heads will turn.


What’s even better than one trend? *Cue Spice Girls nostalgia: it’s when 2 Become 1*. That’s right, we’ve merged two crowd favourites the sock boot and the combat boot to create a love child that’s so comfortable you will never want to take them off - ever. Introducing our Gem Boot. Available in all black (naturally) or if you want to get a little bit adventurous, a touch of cream.
