It's not exactly breaking news to say that animal print made one hell of a comeback last year. Where we once sent anything remotely resembling leopard print or snakeskin straight to the discount bins, we now spend our time brainstorming new ways to wear them. Leopard print midi skirts? Snakeskin trenches? Zebra stripe sweaters? Check, check, check! But if we had to choose just one animal-inspired print to bring with us into the new year, no doubt, it would be crocodile. More specifically, the croc-effect boots that are showing up everywhere, and now that summer is over we are stocking up.
Since going head-to-toe croc might be a tad much (for now, at least), we're opting instead to dip our toes into this particular trend pool. Thankfully, everyone from Zara and Mango to Miista and By Far is incorporating mock croc into their most recent boot collections. So whether you're looking to add a statement pair into the mix with your all-black boot line up with a few low-price options or drop a dime or two on a lifelong pair, there's a wildly popular croc-embossed boot just waiting to jump out at you (pun intended) in the mix ahead.
