Dress boots are like oxfords and ties. The less trendy they are, the more expensive they’ll be. Trying to find a sleek, non-blunt toed dress boot for under $100 can be a nightmare. The simple and classic dress boot design you should be looking for is a one zipper, just above the ankle, nothing fancy with the leather, with rounded point toes that aren’t razor sharp.
Designers know that this is the foundation that all those other trendy boots are built upon. So the prices on the sleek and classic boots rarely fluctuate. And they’re almost always well into the triple digits.
Unless you stumble across a sale like this one from endless on the DKNY Matthew Zip Boot.
Plain and smooth pointed toes, just a bit of elastic on the non-zipper side, and a great hidden detail of the DKNY lettering on the sole.
If you’re in need of some new dress boots and these are up your alley, don’t wait. I can’t imagine they’ll be available at this price for much longer.
