While the stiletto waits for its post-COVID revival, ankle boots have seen us through 2020. The lug-sole boot, made most popular by brands like Bottega Veneta, Prada and The Row, is the perfect socially distanced shoe purchase. Both casual and luxe, the ankle boot can be dressed up for a date night or can be your go-to for walking the dog. Not to mention: Ankle boots, no matter the variation, will continue to be an essential wardrobe piece once restrictions lift. Here, we showcase 18 new options along with 18 ways to style them. You can pair a flat version with cropped jeans and cardigan for a daytime look, or a heeled style with leather pants for something a little more sultry. No matter how many options you have in your closet, a black ankle boot is an investment you can feel good about.
