These high street boots sold out immediately, but they’re finally back in stock

Posted by for Fashion

From Dune’s knee-high boots to the Whistles lace-up style everyone’s loving. 

Boots, boot boots – where do we even start? Of course some of you may have already picked your footwear of choice this season – from sleek knee-highs to chunky Dr Martens – but it’s not too late to get your hands (feet) on the best ones. Like all great buys though, they sell out fast. This is exactly what happened to some of the high street hero pairs you’ve most likely seen on your daily Instagram scroll. However, we’re not here to tell you about the ones that got away, we’re here to deliver the good news that some of autumn/winter 2019’s sell-out high street boots have been restocked. Christmas has come early!

From the Dune croc print knee-high boots that give a nod to the 70s – as spotted at Celine and Etro as part of the swanky bourgeois trend – that sold out within the week. To the Zara stomping boots that sold out within a day (yes, a day) online and channel Bottega Veneta’s cult chunky Chelsea boots.

These are the affordable boots that are so good they gained attention from all the most stylish women and subsequently sold out fast. Thankfully for us all they’re back in stock – if you’re speedy to the checkout, that is. 

Dune’s croc print knee-high boots

Spotted all over Instagram, these heeled knee channel the autumn/winter 2019 catwalk trend of the sleek 70s-style boot seen all over the catwalk. Selling out within a week of landing, luckily they’re back. 

Note: they also come in sleek black and a light brown snake print and they’ve all got fresh new stock just in. Go, go, go!

    The glossy texture makes them look so premium. Layer over jeans (yes, like the 00s) or wear underneath your new season dresses.

Whistles’ lace-up boots

The lace-up heeled boot has basically become a staple for autumn/winter 2019 and although the trend sprung from the catwalks at the likes of Rejina Pyo, this high street pair has made a serious impact. 

In an array of colours, they sold out within the week and have now been restocked. Thanks Whistles!

    Style with jeans, midi dresses, slip skirts and basically anything you can find in your wardrobe. 

    Tip: invest in a leather protector to keep the soft cream leather looking clean.

John Lewis and Partners’ snake print boots

When the Stylist fashion team had these beauties land in their inbox they became an instant talking point. No one could predict they would be quite as popular with the John Lewis and Partners pr later telling them they sold ‘as soon as they hit online’.

Get them in the brown shade as worn by Monikh or try out the navy pair for a twist on a classic.

    These boots are the ideal length below your knee, with a heel that isn’t too high and have the alternative option of a navy blue pair. Perfection.

Zara’s chunky Chelsea boots

The fashion team got in touch with their friends at Zara and they were told these boots came in two other similar styles that both sold out online within a day. Is it the thick sole? The sleek Chelsea style? Or the fact they all look like a certain designer pair? We predict it’s a combination of all the above – along with the fact they’re under £100! This is the latest pair to get before they go.

    This pair is quite high up between an ankle and a calf boot so they work well with jeans and trousers slightly tucked in.
