How could we forget about last year’s sock boot? The ankle-hugging, finely-woven, comfiest boot trend around came on the scene so forcefully that we feared it would burn out before 2019 came to an end. Well, we’re happy to reveal that the knit boot is back and better than ever, thanks to Everlane.
The eco-conscious brand debuted its Glove Boot a few weeks back, and there are already 155 reviews, with a unanimous consensus that they’re worthy of 4.7/5 stars. But what makes them different from the pairs (yes, that’s multiple pairs) we already own?
First and foremost, the knit fabric is made from renewed plastic bottles—nine per pair, to be exact—so you can be sure you’re doing your part to keep the planet beautiful. But these boots don’t have that plasticky feeling at all. In fact, the ribbed material delivers a super-flattering, second-skin look and stretches to move with every step. Plus, the boot hits just above the ankle to pair perfectly with cropped wide-leg jeans and all of fall’s skirts. Shout-out to a shoe that nails versatility!
One buyer even went so far as to call them the “perfect blend of comfort, style and efficiency.” Another exclaimed, “I'm literally buying them in every color possible!” Which brings us to our next point: There’s a hue that will compliment every outfit, from bold tomato and cobalt to basic black, bone and even a super-rich toffee shade.
We’d be remiss not to point out a few caveats, though. Due to the fact that these boots are knit, they’re definitely not waterproof, so as much as you’ll want to, don’t attempt to wear them on rainy or slushy days. One reviewer also commented that they run narrow, so they might not be not ideal for those with a wider instep.
However, Everlane always offers free shipping on two or more items, so grab two pairs and keep the one that fits best. While you’re at it, grab us some boots, too.
