From Mountain-Hiking Heels to Raven Military Boots

 - Oct 18, 2011
Military fashion is back in a big way and along with it, lace-up boots. While often attributed to the military aesthetic, the lace-up footwear style is also reminiscent of old-school Dr. Martens and hiking footwear, which can be seen in this list.

As lace-up boots take the spotlight both in menswear and women's fashion, you don't want to be seen wearing boots without laces. Try on styles as rugged as dessert-style combat boots or as sleek and chic as raven-black stilettos. Depending on the style, lace-up boots can go from grungy to sophisticated in an instant, so you'll have countless wardrobe options to choose from.

From preppy Oxford boots to sky-high lace-ups and ballet-inspired stilettos, this collection has it all. It's time to forget the cozy Sherpa-lined boots or clunky platform booties from seasons past!
