A pair of boots used to be considered a ‘winter staple’, much like a winter coat- boots were another costly, investment purchase.
But things have changed. No longer thought of as a one-off special purchase, boots are now a multi-purchase item, thanks to the rise of increased choice from retailers alongside more accessible price points.
Pairs of boots now sit neatly in consumers hallways next to their rising pile of sneakers. In fact, the latest stats from WGSN INstock reveal that boots have now stolen footwear share from the sports shoe.
