We NEVER Saw This “Ugly” Shoe Trend Coming--But It’s About To Be Everywhere in 2019

I’m always on the hunt for the next best thing–especially when it comes to shoes. And when you love boots as much as I do, you simply can never have enough pairs. Every winter I look forward to the latest boot trends like a kid looks forward to Christmas. It’s my own little holiday if you will. There’s nothing more exciting then surveying the latest styles and silhouettes trying them on for size (get it?). Fashion is all about experimentation after all–that’s why we’re not counting out this new “ugly” boot trend.

Plenty of “ugly” fashion trends have emerged in 2019, but the hiking boot trend is by far my favorite. Think practical, but make it fashion. Even the worst wintery mix stands no chance against this durable boot style.

Not big on hiking? No problem. These boots will take your street style game to new heights.
