After last night’s epic Vogue World extravaganza, it’s hard to shift our focus to anything but the fabulous fall fashion that strutted down the cobblestone streets of the Meatpacking District here in New York City. That being said, there was one eye-catching accessory paired with almost every look that we couldn’t help but take note of: clunky platform combat boots. Even more so, the chunky boot style was paired with some of the show’s glittering finale dresses—metallic sheaths that lit up the entirety of lower Manhattan. This juxtaposition of a toughened-up shoe with an elegant evening dress is one fall fashion trend that we can gladly get behind this season. Platform combat boots weren’t only just saved for the last looks, they were also worn earlier on in the show with dresses that may have sparkled less but were equally as glamorous.
Supermodels from Shalom Harlow and Bella Hadid to Lila Moss and Irina Shayk all wore combat styles from R13 and Dr. Martens, two brands synonymous with the grungier and edgier side of fashion. Below, shop the 8 platform combat boots worn by all the top models at Vogue World.
Like sneakers and dresses, the combination of a feminine frock with a more masculine shoe style is clearly one that works. This fall, we’re eager to get out our fall boots, whether chunky, lug-sole boots, sleek riding boots, or in this case, platform combat boots and our fall dresses to achieve the sartorial success of last night’s show.
