Studded boots are a great way to work the biker-chic trend. Ever since designer label Chloé introduced the “Susan” studded ankle boot a few years ago, the trend has taken off. That particular shoe sold out almost immediately and spawned a myriad of knock-offs. Nowadays, stud embellishments can be found on a range of different boot designs. Below are a few of the most current and hottest studded boots around.
