This year, we saw the rise of some of the craziest shoes to ever grace our feet. There was the Ugg x Teva hybrid Allure editors found to be surprisingly wearable; the bejeweled Crocs by Christopher Kane; and the rose gold sneakers we immediately put on our holiday wish lists. But the trendiest shoes of them all have had to be the sock boots. Buzzy brands like Vetements and Yeezy debuted boots that, well, looked and fit like socks in various shades of nude or primary colors.
The one star who knows how to pull off the look perfectly? Gigi Hadid, of course. The queen of statement coats, crop tops, and the chicest puffer jackets recently stepped out in New York City wearing a camo printed sock bootie by British label Public Desire. The cost? Just $59.99! Since we know she loves a good ankle boot (she even designed one for Stuart Weitzman earlier this year), it’s no surprise that she’s making the style her winter staple.

Public Desire is fashion’s well-kept secret for chic shoes on the cheap. The website has every style you could possibly wish for, like over-the-knee boots (in velvet or sock form), pastel pink clogs covered in fur, and ornate floral brocade ankle boots. You can basically find the trendiest shoes as of late for less than $60. This past fall, Hadid and Kendall Jenner’s BFF Hailey Baldwin even designed a collaboration with the brand.
If you want to emulate Hadid’s style, we suggest pairing the boots with a monochromatic ensemble just the like model. Hadid opted for a pair of trusty black leather pants, a black top, and a classic green bomber jacket. You could also wear them with a knit dress or a cute mini skirt with dark tights for a feminine spin. Luckily, you can never go wrong with camo—the print looks amazing with a long military-inspired coat and a simple black dress for an unconventional take on holiday party dressing.
