Lucky Brand Joss Boot

The Lucky Brand Joss boot is a good example of an emerging trend, the heeled hiking boot style. Do not confuse the look with an actual hiker, this boot is not made for taking long tramps in the mountains...

If you are interested in this boot, yet are still thinking about perusing some more style, here are a few ankle height boots with similar features you might like:

Nine West Janajay:

The Janajay boot is a style that I recently stumbled across, having a similar visual appeal to the Joss. It also has a heeled hiker look, with a few differences including a faux sheepskin lining, lugged outsole and some cross colored shoelaces to add an extra eye catching look. This ankle boot is made from specially made fabric, has also a feminine heel to give you a boost. There are a few colors available for this style, which has a retail price of around $130.

Frye Veronica Combat Boot:

The Veronica Combat has some distinct visual differences when compared to the Joss from Lucky, including a lower heel and a more subtle lacing structure. However this boot also has the ankle boot height with a big of a rugged edge and a lace up style. The leather or suede is luxurious, soft and is made to look great for a long, long time. This boot is available in several different color versions and has a retail price of around $270.

Coconuts By Matisse Brody Boot:

The Brody boot is the most cost effective ankle style on the list, having a gorgeous hiker style with lacing up the front, but has some extra eye catchers of a few buckled straps, lugged sole and metallic eyelet lacing that further sets it apart. The structure of this boot includes faux leather material, stacked heel and a bit of a platform. It comes in a few deep shades and has a retail price of around $88.

The Lucky Brand Joss boot appears to be an excellent choice in heeled hiker style boots, yet the others on this list have some striking similarities and also seem to be good choices for those of us ladies who like a bit of an edge with our casual ensembles.
