Are you getting tired of reading about boot trends yet? Because we’re certainly not done writing about them. This season has brought plenty of standout footwear contenders, from ultra-comfy shearling-lined Sorels à la Katie Holmes to utilitarian-esque combat boots that are trend-forward and practical. But perhaps no boot is causing quite as much buzz as the croc-effect knee-high. And it’s not just because Jennifer Lopez has worn them on repeat — though that has certainly helped.

In case you missed it, J.Lo has been serving up looks left and right. The singer has been busy making media rounds, and as is often the case with a jam-packed press tour, plenty of outfit inspiration was left in its path.

If you take a look at some of the singer’s strongest ensembles from said press tour, though, you’ll notice the common thread is a pair of crocodile-embossed boots. Animal-print anything has been steadily infiltrating the street-style scene, but there’s something about Lopez’s croc-effect thigh-highs that’s especially compelling. And it’s probably because they have the power to make any outfit look so much more luxe in seconds.


Lopez’s go-to pair is from Jimmy Choo. Their sleek, knee-high silhouette features a sharp pointed toe and a svelte 4-inch stiletto heel that’ll inspire some serious strutting. Best of all, though? Her boots are currently 60 percent off at Nordstrom. But as you’d expect, they’re flying off the shelves. J.Lo + Jimmy Choo + 60 percent off = an instant sell out. It’s easy math.

Lopez’s croc-embossed thigh-highs are most definitely made for walking, and this writer will certainly be following boot (er, suit). Shop J.Lo’s boots, plus others like them, ahead.
