It’s official. The sock boot trend that has been a fixture on the runways for the past few years is here to stay. After a year of wearing track jackets and leggings to almost every occasion in the name of "athleisure," the modern fashionista wanted to incorporate practicality and refinement back into her wardrobe. The 'It' shoe started out as a cheeky fashion stunt born of this aesthetic and swiftly became a sartorial favorite of the Instagram famous and elite. From the sexy trench dresses of autumn to spring’s flirtatious midi skirts, fashion’s most daring influencers have worked and reworked this style. Sock boots are distinguished by a minimalist design, knit fabrication, and an ankle-hugging shaft. We love it for its easy pull-on style, streamlined functionality, and unmistakable sportiness. It’s safe to say that sock boots have taken over the fashion world and defined an era. Now that we’re all on board with the idea of it as a key player in our stylebook, we can start adapting it to more occasions and environments.
Leaning into the athleisure-inspired boot movement is Hirica, a century-old footwear brand out of France. Hirica footwear has been made in France from start to finish since its founding in 1904--a rare occurrence that we can appreciate. Their range is hallmarked by accessibility and trendiness with a French twist! Their brand philosophy is to bring comfort and sensible styling to the modern woman, and the company has done just that with the Sacha ankle boot. Sacha is priced at an impressive $215 and is offered in three candy colors and four classic hues. Top features include an ankle-grazing neoprene shaft with a counter pull tab, a molded wedge heel, and a flexible rubber sole. We love that it’s constructed with soft, supple nubuck leather and a removable sock-like liner cushioning the interior. This on-trend ankle boot is truly understated beauty.
Unlike the fanciful sock boots that are popping up all over your social media feeds, Hirica’s Sacha boots are all-purpose. Pull on one of the neutral color options with a light sweater, a puffer vest, cool bucket hat, and cuffed denim jeans for a short hike through a nearby forested park. The flexible outsole will bend naturally with each step that you take. Let your new Sacha wedge boots take center stage when you complement any of the vibrant choices with a chic midi dress in a neutral shade to shake things up at happy hour. The simplicity of these Hirica boots lends itself to a chameleon-like appeal. You'll open yourself up to new possibilities and create fresh looks with pieces that you already own!
