Ranking Ariana Grande's Boots, In All Their Over-The-Knee Glory
For better or worse, most modern performers have some type of sartorial signature. And Ariana Grande's boots are the young singer's very own style stamp. Though she favors suede, over-the-knee styles, Grande has also been known to rock a white go-go version from time to time. Read on for the definitive ranking of Ariana Grande's fabulous boot collection.
#17: Fringed Brown Suede Boots
A pair of brown fringed suede boots worn to an interview with Clevver TV in 2011 demonstrate how far Grande’s style has come in a mere three years.

#16: High-Top Booties
Grande graced her Baby I video in a pair of laid-back high-top booties, which, though ideal for the shoot’s relaxed feel, were shown up by her preferred over-the-knee style.
#15: Side-Zip White Go-Go Boots
For her Problem music video with Iggy Azalea, the young star went for a vintage vibe, selecting a white, side-zipped pair that hit just under the knee.
#14: White Futuristic Go-Go Boots
Grande selected another variation on her favored white go-go boots for her Break Free video, this time a pair which complemented her alternate universe/science fiction-inspired costume.
#13: Dark Grey Suede Boots
To match a silvery bustier, Grande selected a pair of understated dark grey suede boots which, despite being quite elegant, were nonetheless far from her best pair.
#12: Different Suede Over-The-Knee-Boots
The slightly ruched look of these suede over-the-knee boots give them edgy texture.
#11: White Go-Go Boots
Calling the ’60s: These throwback knee-high boots are a time capsule from another era.
#10: White Patent Platforms
These white patent platform boots certainly fit in with Grande’s 60s vibe, though I wouldn’t suggest anyone but the petite performer wear them.
#9: Black Matte Over-The-Knee Boots
As far as over-the-knee boots go, these look more like compression stockings than detailed footwear. However, if anyone can wear compression socks and rock them, it would be Ariana Grande.
#8: Mismatched Black And White Patent Boots
Paired with a crop top and mini skirt, these mismatched black and white patent boots are a quirky — if slightly youthful — sartorial statement
#7: Black And White Checkered Boots
These mod black-and-white checkered go-go boots are simply darling.
#6: Brown Knee-High Boots
Grande wore these streamlined brown leather Meredith boots by Derek Lam 10 Crosby on the cover of Seventeen Magazine for the publication’s Back-To-School issue.

#5: Patent Over-The-Knee Boots
This double-leather look is well and good for the VMAs, but the boots themselves are less than imaginative. If only their golden zippers were visible from the side, or their minute golden heels made a bit more of a statement.
#4: Silver Bedazzled Boots
These blinding, bedazzled boots earn points sheerly for the amount of glitter which covers them from knee to toe.
#3: Suede Over-The-Knee Boots
My, Ms. Grande, how you like to push the boundaries of fashion. I approve of the style, but with the itsy-bitsy silver costume, these over-the-knee boots read a bit Pretty Woman.
#2: Platform Louboutin Over-The-Knee Boots
The slight platforms makes these suede Louboutins just a notch edgier than Grande’s simpler pair.
#1: Fitted Suede Over-The-Knee Boots
The crowning glory of these sultry boots? They happen to be Christian Louboutin, stiletto heels to red soles.
