Ankle boots with buckles are a sub-category of short boots that are either closed with a buckle fastener or are decorated with buckles for purely visual reasons. The ankle boots must have a shaft that goes at least to the ankle or slightly beyond. Ankle boots with buckles are offered for women as well as for men and rarely also in shoe fashion for children and are therefore available at least in the usual shoe sizes for adults.
The buckle – clasp and decorative element
A wide variety of closure models can be found in shoe fashion. Many of these closure models are closely linked to certain shoe types or even give their name, such as lace-up shoes or buckled shoes, the so-called escarpins, which were worn with knee breeches by men and women in the 18th century and closed with a buckle on the instep.
The buckle fastener is a practical alternative to complex lacing and often looks more elegant than Velcro fasteners or zippers. However, a combination of buckles and zippers is also popular in order to be able to individually regulate the width of the ankle boot by adjusting the buckle length and to ensure optimal adaptation of the boot to the anatomy of the foot. The shoe itself can be closed with one or more buckles, which are either traditionally attached to the instep, on the side or at the top of the boot shaft.

Buy ankle boots with buckles – these tips should be followed when buying
Before buying, you should decide whether you want the buckles as a closure model or whether they can also appear as purely decorative elements , because on some models the buckles cannot be adjusted to regulate the width and are only used for optical purposes. Since sturdy booties with large buckles can be applied quickly and make the entire silhouette appear squat, such a model is more recommended for slim and tall people. People with stronger legs or a stocky build are well advised with ankle boots in the elegant Chelsea boot style or fine lace-up ankle boots with small decorations. For example, the combination of black smooth leather with gold buckles looks very good. The fastening elements should appear delicate and playful and not take up too much space on the boot shaft. Another cheap option is to choose a short boot with a moderate or high heel. If the model is flat, the squat effect is usually intensified unfavorably.
Tip! When buying, you should also make sure that all individual components of the buckles are well made and neither give off color to the shaft material nor take on a different color, for example in strong weather.
