Kylie Jenner’s Thigh-High Balenciaga Boots Are A White-Hot Summer Shoe Trend

When it comes to party looks, Kylie Jenner knows how to make a statement.

The beauty mogul stopped by the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood Friday night for Zack Bia’s birthday (carrying a cutout of her friend), wearing a retro-inspired, head-to-toe Balenciaga look that was both red and white-hot — especially the gravity-defying, thigh-high boots.

The footwear was none other than the now-sold out Balenciaga Knife over-the-knee boots. The made-in-Italy shoes feature a polyamide and elastane construction with a 4.3-inch heel, a flat, sharp-pointed toe and a no-zip design. These boots originally retailed for $1,650. This silhouette can be found in the black color way, on sale for $756 at bergdorfgoodman.com.

Jenner paired the statement boots with the brand’s Tab short wrap dress, a long-sleeved mini constructed from red stretch jersey. It features dropped shoulders and a tie-waist detail. This item retails for $1,050 and is available for purchase on Farfetch.com.

Over-the-knee footwear has long been a staple in this famous Kardashian sister’s wardrobe. For Cardi B’s and Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Wap’ video, she wore a head-to-toe leopard ensemble with coordinating leopard thigh-high boots.
