Gearing up for winter doesn’t mean you should settle for boring footwear. Here are the best designer combat boots you should check out ASAP!
Let’s start this off by saying that designer combat boots are not only smoking hot but they are also incredibly comfortable, functional, and versatile.
By this point in the season, everyone should have a pair of trendy combat boots in their shoe closet but if that’s not you, don’t fret. If you’re looking to cross “designer combat boots” off of your shopping list, we’ve rounded up our 17 favorites—but proceed with caution as it can be difficult to stop at just one pair!
If you’re ready to invest in your first pair of designer combat boots (we promise you won’t regret it), check out these ten styles:
The Best Designer Combat Boots
1. Fendi Fendigraphy Combat Boot
We love the glamorous look of these Fendigraphy Combat Boots, with the sleek black leather and glittering gold hardware. These striking combat boots feature the typical chunky lug sole, in contrasting black rubber, but this time with a 1.5-inch platform sole and 2.25-inch heel for an elevated look.
The boots themselves are made from glossy black leather for a luxe finish, and are then embellished with the Fendi brand name in gold lettering around the top of the shoes – just stunning! The contrasting colors and bold hardware ensures these combat boots are the perfect eye-catching pair you need in your wardrobe.
2. See by Chloé Mallory Boot
The Mallory Boots are made from leather and have beautiful gold lace-up detailing and buckle closures at the top.
These combat-style boots have a 2-inch heel, which will elongate the appearance of your legs when you wear them with a plaid mini skirt or dress. Because these boots look quite fancy, they would also pair perfectly with faux leather leggings if you were going out on the town at night.
The Mallory Boots cost $575, making them one of the most affordable pairs on this list.
3. Gucci Logo Quilted Leather Combat Boot
The embossed logo on these Gucci Leather Combat Boots ensures a minimalist, but still luxurious look. These beautiful boots are crafted from supple black leather, which has been embossed with the double G Gucci monogram, giving the boots a stunning, tactile feel.
These boots are laced up at the front, but there is also a side zipper so you can easily slip these boots on and off. The shoes are finished with a thick lugged rubber sole for that classic combat boot look.
The all-black design of these boots means they will suit a wide range of outfits, from jeans for a relaxed aesthetic to floral dresses to create a gorgeous contrast – these combat boots will never go out of style.
4. Fendi Rockoko Knit Leather Combat Boots
These combat boots are a wonderful option for fashionistas who want to ease themselves into the trend as they are a little less streetwear and edgy than some of the other styles.
The Fendi Rockoko Knit Leather Combat Boots feature a knit sock detail, the Fendi logo around the upper cuff of the boot, an almond-shaped toe, and a lace-up closure.
But if it’s a platform sole that you seek, these boots might not be the best option for you as they only have a one-inch heel. However, that means they can be worn comfortably on a daily basis. These super chic combat boots were made in Italy and cost $995.
P.S. For those who love logomania, these boots also come entirely covered in Fendi’s monogram print too!
5. Prada Monolith Boots
For those who have already fallen in love with Prada’s Re-edition Nylon bag, these combat boots are perfect for you as they have a very similar design look to the shoulder bag. These combat boots are made with brushed rois leather and nylon, and feature a removable strap with a pouch with the brand’s emblem on the front.
This little pouch can store emergency cash for a slice of pizza when you’re heading home after drinks with your friends or coworkers. The Prada Monolith combat boots are absolutely cutting-edge in terms of style and have a 2.25-inch block heel, giving you a little extra height without having to wear high heels.
These boots come in white, beige and black and retail for $1,650.
6. Tory Burch Miller Boots
Because we are total Tory Burch stans, we had to include their combat boots in our list. These boots are different from the previous two as they feature a 3.7-inch heel, making them perfect for dressier occasions where you’ll be walking around a little less.
They are made from tumbled leather and suede, and come in Perfect Black, Dark Tan, and Toasted Caramel. Each pair features the brand’s signature double T logo embossed on the side of the boot.
This pair, in particular, goes very well with dresses and skirts as they are more feminine in style. The Tory Burch Miller Boots cost $458.
7. See by Chloé Mallory Buckle-Cuff Boots
See by Chloé always delivers on striking design, high-quality materials, and affordable prices – just like these Mallory Buckle-Cuff Combat Boots, available for just $595.
These boots have a classic combat boot look, with a slight boho touch that has become synonymous with the See by Chloé brand. The boots are made from buttery soft black leather and are finished with a lugged rubber sole and 1.8-inch stacked heel – to add that extra little height for a stylish look.
The lace-up front and double buckled cuff at the top of the boot feature white fluffy shearling for a super soft feel, while the glittering gold buckles are the perfect finishing touch.
8. Valentino Garavani Roman Stud Calfskin Combat Boots
These Valentino Garavani Roman Stud Calfskin Combat Boots have a sleek finish and are decorated with the quintessential Valentino Garavani studs.
These gorgeous boots are crafted from supple brown calf leather and then feature statement gleaming gold pyramid studs around the top of the shoe and around the ankle buckled strap. The thick lug sole in black rubber gives the boots that timeless combat boot style, while the size zipper ensures they are easy to slip on and off.
The neutral color of these boots guarantees they will suit a wide range of outfits, especially in the fall and winter months. These classic, chic boots are available for just $1,520.
9. Gucci Double G Ankle Boots
If you’re looking for a pair of combat-style booties that aren’t black, these beige and ebony double G canvas covered ankle boots are exactly what you need.
These ankle boots feature tonal matelasse trim, a 1.6-inch heel, a gold double G emblem on the side of the boot, and are made in Italy. We can imagine these boots looking incredibly fashionable with high-waisted denim and a sweater.
10. Chanel Shiny Lace Up Combat Boots
These Chanel combat boots cost a pretty penny but we know that they will look even prettier with your high-waisted jeans and floral sundresses.
These trendy lace-up combat boots are made from calfskin leather in a quilted pattern and feature gold chain lace details and the Chanel emblem at the top and on the toe. They have a 1.5-inch heel and can be purchased in-store for around $1,800, or on Fashionphile for slightly less.
As these are some of Chanel’s bestselling items this season, they can be very hard to get your hands on in-store, thus consider looking into buying them second-hand if you really want them.
11. Gucci Trip Combat Boots
Can you tell that we have a thing for Gucci? These boots are totally biker chic as they have an impressive 3.5-inch heel and 1.5-inch platform so if you love a substantial heel, look no further than the Gucci Trip Combat Boots.
They have a diamond-quilted cuff, black laces, and a chunky rubber sole. For only $1,050, you can add these punk rocker boots to your footwear collection. These beautiful boots come in subtle black, monogram beige x white, as well as garnet red.
12. Prada Nylon Tall Lace-Up Combat Boots
If you’re looking for taller lace-up boots, these tall nylon and calf-leather combat boots from Prada are just perfect.
They are quite slim-fitting, so you can wear them with skinny or straight-leg jeans, as well as skirts or dresses, if that’s more your vibe. As the boot is made mostly of nylon, it’s very hardwearing and even water-resistant – the perfect everyday boot!
13. Givenchy Terra Leather Heeled Combat Boots
We love the statement accessories offered by the historic French fashion house, Givenchy, especially these Terra Leather Heeled Combat Boots which will give your fall and winter looks that bold and effortlessly stylish look.
These boots are made from luxurious black calf leather with a round toe and lace-up front. A buckled cuff features at the top of the boots finished with the Givenchy logo in sparkling silver.
These striking boots are perfectly finished with a chunky black rubber lugged sole and thick 3.15-inch heel to really elevate your outfit. Get your hands on these attention-grabbing boots for just $1,350!
14. Gucci Trip Lug Sole Boots
Gucci’s take on combat boots is great for fashionistas who like wearing a bit of color on their feet. These boots have gold hardware and a striped grosgrain band, which adds a pop of color around each ankle.
We suggest this pair if you’re worried about typical combat boots being a little too edgy for your wardrobe or personal style as these are more chic than grungy.
Like most combat boots, the Gucci Trip Lug Sole Boots are done up by laces and have a platform, providing you with a 3-inch boost in the height department. These combat boots, which are made in Italy, can be yours for $1,150.
15. Nicholas Kirkwood Casati Combat Boots
These refined black combat boots have an elegant and sophisticated finish – perfect if you are looking for a pair of boots with a smarter look.
The Nicholas Kirkwood Casati Combat Boots are made from shiny calf leather, with a lace-up front and rounded toe. The eye-catching element of these boots is the 1.4-inch heel that is inlaid with large shimmering white pearls to add a touch of glam.
There are several different variations of these boots available in different colored leathers, including peachy tan and black, as well as other materials, including tweed, suede grosgrain for a textural look – lots of choices means you can find the perfect colorway and material for you!
16. Roger Vivier Viv Rangers embellished ankle boots
Roger Vivier is one of the best luxury shoe brands out there, consistently creating beautiful, top-quality footwear – including these Viv Rangers embellished platform ankle boots.
These combat boots are made from glossy black patent leather and are set on thick platform soles to give you a little extra height while still ensuring these boots are comfortable. The front of the boots features a gold zipper and an oversized gleaming gold buckle, engraved with the initials RV – a motif that has been synonymous with Roger Vivier since the 1960s.
These boots have the perfect finishing touch, a hidden zipper at the side so they are easy to slip on. These versatile, endlessly chic, and sophisticated boots are available for just $1,495.
17. Gucci Ankle Boot with Belt
Ladies who love bling, look no further than these combat-style booties that are a very unexpected (but appreciated) play on the classic Chelsea boot.
These boots feature a 2.4-inch heel with a slight platform, detachable ankle belt encrusted with crystals, and a gold double G emblem on the front.
They are carefully crafted in Italy and can be your new favorite pair of boots for $1,250.
How To Style Your Combat Boots
Combat boots are definitely a fall and winter staple but if styled correctly, they can be worn with dresses and skirts in the spring and summer.
When it comes to finding an outfit that matches your designer combat boots, consider pairing them with high-waisted or oversized jeans and a cropped sweater or bodysuit.
They also look great with beige or white cargo-style pants that are slightly cropped at the ankle or leggings and a baggy sweater on days where you want to feel comfortable without sacrificing fashion.
For those who are really edgy and daring when it comes to getting dressed in the morning, wearing faux leather leggings with your combat boots will give off some serious biker babe vibes. Complete this look with a neutral-colored sweater, black puffer jacket, and black beanie. You’ll be ready to tackle the chillier weather with confidence.
But if you live somewhere with a relatively hot climate, you can still get some solid use out of your designer combat boots. You can wear your boots with faux leather mini skirts, flowy tunic dresses, and feminine wrap dresses.
When it comes to socks, we suggest wearing a pair that’s long enough to cover your ankles. Sockettes and ankle socks won’t be very comfortable as the hard shell of the combat boot can create some friction when you wear them for a long period of time.
But with higher socks that hit right below the top of the boot, you’ll be able to wear your boots for hours on end with no complaints!
