We’d forgive you for thinking that red ankle boots are a little tacky and totally impractical, but it turns out that postbox-red boots are set to be this year’s surprise standout shoe style.

The likes of Margaret Zhang, Lucy Williams and Tamu McPherson have all been wearing their scarlet, cherry or burgundy boots on loop, proving they are not only a fun pick-me-up accessory but also a wise—and surprisingly reusable—investment.
