Ankle boots have been huge for the last several years and show no sign of being set free from their prominence. In fact, the latest ankle boot trends show the opposite sentiment: a tendency towards bondage. If you’d like to dabble in this “fetish” without breaking the bank, here are my top 10 picks that feature a plethora of buckles, harnesses, straps, grommets, laces, studs, cuffs, and even cages.
Overdose on buckles! Why not? These easy-entry suede boots with a back zipper are only $26.40.
Harness boots with a rustic flavor and unique gold studs.
This style walks the line between Yves St Laurent’s famed cage heel and Alexander McQueen’s motorcycle zipper bootie. Either way, you’ve got this trend under lock and key for only $25.20!
Simultaneously practical and daring, these stunnahs are wearable, warm and only $44.
Paired with black skinny jeans and a shrunken leather jacket, anyone could pull off these exaggerated cuffs with aplomb.
Rugged styling with ultra feminine details, like tassels, macramé and a sky-high stiletto heel for a mere $29.40!
Edward Scissorhands himself might covet these boots. Just imagine how nicely they would toughen up that floral body-con dress you thrifted last week.
These boots are probably my tamest choice, but only because the last pair whipped them into submission. I reckon these beauties will still be chic next year, so you’ll get your $32.80 worth and then some.
Wear this corseted peep toe with layers of tights to keep your toes warm in cooler climes.
