If Kendall Jenner’s 21st birthday dress (and Paris Hilton’s 21st birthday dress, for that matter) were a pair of shoes, it would be these boots. If being “extra” had a visual definition, it would be these boots. If there were ever a fashion accessory that demaded you throw a party for the sole purpose of showing it off, it would be these boots. If there were ever a way to guarantee double takes on double takes, it would be these boots. If there were ever a way to replace a broken disco ball at your next dance party, breakdance spinning on your head in these boots would be it.
Handmade and covered in 3,000 Swarovski crystals per shoe, the Saint Laurent Niki 105 thigh-high boots went from a Fall 2017 Paris runway debut to Rihanna’s #OOTD Instagram post quicker than Kaia Gerber went from one catwalk to the next. And just like that, celeb extraordinaire Kendall Jenner, our new favorite talk show guest Cardi B, and sleeper style icon Céline Dion were all spotted rocking the boot of the season.
For the rest of us mere mortals whose budgets don’t have a line item for shoes that cost ten grand, there’s no shortage of fast-fashion homages to these gleaming beauties. The Crushing Embellished Boot from Steve Madden, Claira Boot by Aldo, Layzer Boot by Jessica Simpson, and Scastien Boot by Nine West all clock in under $285. And if those options aren’t enough, check out over 3,000 glitter boots on eBay ranging from $9.99 to $1,295.
