If you thought 2022’s fixation with fashion from the turn of the century hit its peak with micro miniskirts and ultra low-rise jeans, just wait until you hear about the sartorial sector’s latest obsession. First spotted on the streets of Copenhagen during the city’s runway shows at the beginning of the month, Moon Boots are fast becoming the most-worn footwear trend of the F/W 22 season. And no, I’m not kidding.
Following their debut in Copenhagen, the astronaut-inspired knee-high and ankle-high boots that ruled the Sundance Film Festival fashion scene in the early aughts have appeared on show-goers in every city on the Fashion Month circuit, including New York and London. Paired with knee-high leg warmers, slouchy trousers, and minidresses, Moon Boots are proving to be a surprisingly wearable shoe choice, which might be why they’re almost completely sold out.
Further fueling their comeback, influencers and celebrities are, too, turning to the style for their end-of-winter wardrobes. Earlier this week, Camille Charriere posted a slideshow on her Instagram showcasing her mini Moon Boots styled with black jeans and a plaid puffer, while Copenhagen-based model Karoline Beltner wore her metallic pair with cargo pants and a shearling jacket. Saving the best for last, Dua Lipa debuted a pair on her Instagram, worn during the current Future Nostalgia tour. In other words, they’re gaining steam fast. And if you want to hop on the Moon-Boot train before every last pair sells out, you’ll have to act fast.
