7 Pairs of Python Boots to Buy — Starting at $80

Rihanna stole the show in the trend two months ago at a Fenty Beauty party in Sydney. In November, Kylie Jenner joined the movement while out and about in a pair of Yeezy boots. And last weekend at the Jingle Ball in New York, Katie Holmes sported shoes of her own featuring one of the season’s biggest ideas — snakeskin.

Python prints have taken over apparel and accessories, and while there are a variety of silhouettes done in the snaky finish, boots are definitely the way to go if you want to dip your toe in the trend — there are countless colors and price points to fit every personality and budget. Shop our picks below.
