All Eyes on Pointy-Toe Ankle Boots

June 20, 2012 • By Erika

Ankle boots have been a long-time staple of summer, but up until recently, cowboy-style suede ankle boots reigned. Now, pointy-toe ankle boots look poised to take over the trend. While suede ankle boots were laid-back, rugged, and boho chic, the new pointy-ankle boots are more polished, urbane, and city slick.

One of the first purveyors of the pointy-toe ankle boots style is Miranda Kerr. Remember how she has two different versions of the same zipped and buckled black suede ankle boots? She must love how those boots give her casual ensembles an edgy appeal and a much needed “bite.”

Even Chloé decided to reissue its super popular “Susan” ankle boots from 2008 for this year, proving just how hot this summer look is.

So many labels have copied this Chloé piece, but we’ll save that for a different post!

For now, check out these other pointy-toe ankle boots that we can’t wait to wear with loose tops, cutoff shorts, and sun dresses. Once fall rolls around, these will easily transition with the season change, making them a pretty good wardrobe investment and not just a passing trend!
