It’s officially that time of year when you’ll want to exclusively wear boots from here until spring. And in case you already shopped the best boots on sale and the best blister-free options, we’re bringing you up to speed on one more important category — the ultra-luxe boot selection.
Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, Millie Bobby Brown and many more have been stepping out in the coolest boot styles of the season. And while they aren’t exactly budget-friendly, the splurge will pay off. Just think — for as often as you’ll be in them this season, the cost per wear will be mere pennies in the end. Below, see the designer brands stars love and find out where to pick up a pair for yourself.
Kendall Jenner was spotted out at a L.A. Clippers game in her signature courtside style — wearing a pair of ridiculously crazy shoes. Those sparkly knee-highs (that most likely blinded the players) are $10,000 Saint Laurent “Niki” boots that just about every star in Hollywood owns and are pure magic for the KiraKira app.
Not surprisingly, style setter Céline Dion was one of the first to step out in the boots this summer. Then Cardi B wore a pair during her VMA pre-show performance in August. Kim Zolciak Biermann appeared on Watch What Happens Live in the boots in October, and not too long after, her Real Housewives of Atalanta nemesis Nene Leakes wore the same pair, on the same show!
Already having style déja vu? You’ll really do a double take when you see Kendall Jenner attending her birthday dinner in the sparkly shoes – in addition to appearances on Rihanna and Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild.

If you’re not committed to dropping $10,000 to own a pair of these celeb-adored shoes, we did some digging and found some amazing alternatives for a fraction of the cost that you’re guaranteed to love.
