13 Yeezy Season 2 Knit Ankle Boot Dupes That Give You That Kylie Jenner Look

Call it the Jenner effect, but sock-style boots are everywhere right now. The snug, form-fitting silhouette is 2016's sexiest boot, which is strange but true! Epitomized by Kanye's Yeezy Season 2 boots (and their longer Season 3 cousins) the style hits all the best shoe bases. They are chic, smart, and adaptable to any outfit. And if you have a spare grand lying around, those Kanye-made kicks can be yours. If you don't? There are some pretty great alternatives to the knitted Yeezy Season boots out there. 

Because while Kanye's celebrity following might have immortalized the silhouette, retailers have us covered with other options that happen to currently be in stock. The basic requirements aren't too hard to come by. You're looking for a luxe, nontraditional shoe fabric like velvet, brocade, or suede (basically anything you wouldn't want to wear in the rain) and an all-in-one, covered heel look to create a sleek line. Carpetbag florals are the name of the game — the bold, baroque prints have jumped from accessory to apparel, and the opulent fabric gives patterns new life. Jewel-toned and nude options also big, while thick, chunky heels are nonnegotiable. Insta-friendly shoes that are also easy to walk in: No complaints here.

These shoes are about comfort, stability, and style — and that's great news for everyone, everywhere. 

1. Wine Time

Steve Madden Edit, $90, Amazon

Wine lipstick for fall, check. Wine boots that match perfectly? Also check. Rather spend your money on actual merlot instead? Scoop up this pair for under $100 (or create the look at home with this $5 sock hack).

2. Blush Ruched

Michael Kors Ursula Ruched Mid Calf Booties, $165, Bloomingdales

The ruched cinch on this pair puts a spin on the silhouette, while the all-over nude keeps it on trend. 

3. Toe-p

H&M Suede Boots, $99, HM

Forgive the taupe pun, but H&M did it well with this sleek pair of suede boots. The silhouette is one part '70s, two parts Yeezy.

4. Red Velvet

KENDALL and KYLIE, $199, Brooke Velvet Block Heel BootiesBloomingdales

From Kanye's sisters-in-law themselves, this iteration of the Yeezy boot is gorgeous.

5. Camel Toes


Combining the tight sock-style silhouette with a thicker, more durable material, this Zara pair is an outlier for its obvious lines, but it pulls off the patchwork look. 

6. Silver Lining

Boohoo Velvet High Ankle Heeled Boot, $53, Asos

Am I right?! So gorgeous. They're like glorious unicorn shoes

7. Socks Gone Sleek

Alexander Wang Gia Boots, $695, Shopbop

Get a little discount with a similarly luxe vibe. 

8. Blue Of The Deep

Zara Velvet Over the Knee High Heel Boots, $119, Zara

Admittedly more Yeezy Season 3, but this is another iteration of the skintight sock look. Plus, the color is to die for.

9. Black Ice

New Look Wide Fit Suedette Heeled Ankle Boot, $46, Asos

The sock-cuff style trades in its solid block heels with this pair, and gets an eye-catching clear ombre in return. 

10. One & Done Sequins

Topshop MERLOT Sequin Boots, $170, Topshop

Pair these with jeans and you'll be done for the rest of the season.  

11. Flora Fawnin' 


Ash Flora Embroidered Block Heel Booties, $240, Bloomingdales

This Ash pair would perfectly complement opaque black tights, a.k.a. my winter legs. 

12. Fabric Flowers


Rebecca Minkoff Bojana Embroidered High Heel Booties, $295, Bloomingdales

These Rebecca Minkoffs opt for a wooden heel instead of fabric covered, which will be ideal for braving rougher, slushier winter months. 

13. Happy Feet

River Island Embroidered Heeled Ankle Boot$61, Asos

It could be the styling, but this pair is singing Stevie Nicks like nothing else.
