Winter has arrived, heel-lovers! That means it’s time to put aside your strappy kitten heels and open-toed platforms and bring out a classical seasonal favourite: boots! Although I love wearing boots during spring and summer too, there’s nothing like a pair of stylish boots during the autumn and winter seasons. Today, I am going to show you a new, bold boots collection by Paris Texas, the Italian brand where the feminine, sensual side of Paris meets the rock’n’roll vibe of Texas.
Paris Texas brand overview
Paris Texas is an Italian shoe brand founded in 2015 by Annamaria Brivio in Milan. As the name suggests, the designers deal in contrasts: Parisian elegance meets the Western wild spirit to form a unique and iconic creation. They first released a capsule collection for an incubator specialising in emerging labels. The debut consisted of mules, chunky boots and stiletto heels in modern metallics, bold colours and wild snakeskin patterns. The drop was a hit and has since been seen on many celebrities, as I’ll explain later. If you love fashion and use Instagram often, you’ve definitely seen these boots!
Where to buy Paris Texas Boots
Paris Texas boots are, of course, available on their main website. You can also find them on any top retailer of designer boots, such as MyTheresa and Farfetch, or your national fashion department store, such as Harrods. Here is a selection of handy links of retailers I know stock Paris Texas boots:
Do Paris Texas Boots go on sale?
Designer boots typically range between $600 and $2000 (tier 3-4 of my price guide). This excludes designs with more complex features and embellishments like the Jimmy Choo Blake Knee Boot, which can cost up to $7000! In my opinion, Paris Texas boots are very well priced considering the quality of the shoes, especially when compared to other brands. You can find most models on sale at some point as opposed to other designer brands which don’t do sales for the most iconic brands or only have limited stock. As of this post’s publication, the beautiful Paris Texas boots are currently on sale on Farfetch and Mytheresa, so be sure to check those out if you’re interested! My recommendation is to keep an eye on several different retailers by regularly checking websites and subscribing to mailing lists, so you’re ready when the boots you’re looking for the price to drop.
Paris Texas boots collection review
The Holly Crystal stiletto boots are calf leather knee boots with dazzling silver crystal embellishment. The stiletto is 115mm and the shoe features an easy slip-on style rather than a zipper. I’d recommend that if you plan on buying one of the other colours such as black, pink, purple or yellow, it’s important to see the shoes in person instead of only looking online. I found that the pink colour had a much different shimmer effect to the silver and looked different to the photo on the website. These boots are so fun and I’ll definitely wear them a lot!
I love these Barbie-pink patent calf leather stiletto boots! The heel is 105mm and also has a slip-on style. These boots are more slim-fitting than the other slouchy shoes, so it might be smart to size up half a size if you need some extra room around your calves. The patent leather is also a little bit noisy when you walk, but the shoes are so stunning that it’s hardly a problem! Pink is definitely the colour of the season, but the boots are also available in teal green, red and black if you prefer.
The 105mm Stiletto Slouchy boots are made from shiny ice-blue leather with an embossed snakeskin effect and a laminated finish. These cute shoes are also available in emerald green and fuchsia pink, as well as other colour variants with a suede finish. I think these are definitely a stunning standout of Paris Texas’ boots drop!
Next, I tried the beautiful knee-high fuschia pink crocodile effect stiletto boots. These have a 105mm stiletto heel and are also available in indigo blue, chocolate brown, black and white. While the other boots are very bold and eye-catching, these boots are stylish in a more muted way and offer a simpler alternative for those who want shoes that are easier to style.
Last, the thigh-high Mama boots! These fuschia stiletto heels feature a classy crushed velvet effect and distinctly pointed toes. The exact heel measurement wasn’t shown on the website, but I’d estimate they’re about 100mm from comparing them by eye to my So Kate heels. I love the elasticated band at the top, which keeps the boots securely held up. Overall, a gorgeous addition to my wardrobe!
My favourite Paris Texas Boots outfits
The Holly Crystal boots are party boots and should be styled accordingly! These Instagrammable shoes gave me a festive vibe, so I paired them with a sparkly dress to be worn to a Christmas party or New Year’s celebration.
The pink Patent Stiletto boots paired well with a black mini dress that didn’t distract too much from the shoes. I would recommend a more muted outfit with a statement piece like these shoes.
I styled the Slouchy Stiletto boots with a sleek all-black outfit and some black faux leather pants. You could also style these with some shorts in the warmer seasons, but an elegant dress would clash with the bold shoes.
- Croc-Effect Stiletto Boots
The Croc-Effect Stiletto boots looked great with an elegant A-line satin dress; I also accessorised with a thin black belt for contrast. As I said, these boots are more muted than the other boots and therefore more adaptable, so you can dress them up or down with your outfit and accessories.
Last but not least, I styled the Mama boots similarly to the pink patent boots: with a simple black mini dress. Again, these boots make a statement and add a pop of colour to any outfit, so I would let them speak for themselves rather than wearing a colourful outfit too.

Mytheresa x Paris Texas Boots capsule collection
Mytheresa and Paris Texas have released a Western-inspired boots collaboration where sharpshooting cowboy aesthetics meet Hollywood glam. The boots feature fringes, suede, and lots of sparkles! The capsule collection is exclusive to Mytheresa, so be sure to check it out on their website and over on TikTok.
Are Paris Texas Boots comfortable?
Paris Texas boots are extremely high-quality Italian shoes that are made to last many seasons of strutting. Annamaria, the founder and creative director of Paris Texas, spoke to luxury designer Flannels about her vision for Paris Texas wearers: she said, “Paris Texas is for the multi-faceted women who live busy, fulfilling lives and who aren’t afraid to be sexy one day, and more rock and roll the next.” Naturally, comfort is a high priority for women like that, and I can guarantee that the shoemakers followed through on this promise!
Paris Texas Size Chart
Do Paris Texas Boots run big or small? Should you size up or down?
I found that the Paris Texas boots didn’t run particularly big or small in terms of the actual shoe. However, knee-high or thigh-high shoes that don’t feature a “slouchy” effect may be a little tight around the calf, depending on your size. It’s worth trying the shoes on in-store to see how they fit before you buy them, or comparing them to other boots you already have in your wardrobe.
Are Paris Texas Boots true to size?
Overall, Paris Texas boots are true to size. I bought all my boots in either a size 37.5 or 38. The main two factors to account for are:
- Calf size — do thigh-high boots typically squeeze your legs uncomfortably? Then go up by half a size.
- Thickness of socks — if you don’t plan to wear thicker socks with your boots, there’s no need to size up for extra space!
Top celebrities spotted in Paris Texas Boots
Many popular celebrities have been spotted in the trendy Paris Texas boots collection! Model Emily Ratajkowski was one of the first celebrities to be spotted in Paris Texas boots, rocking chocolate-brown croc-embossed boots back in 2018. This brought lots of attention to the brand. Since then, many celebrities have styled the shoes in their own unique ways. Hailey Bieber adapted the Angora Slouchy Suede Boots in a cream-white to her street style in the streets of snowy New York, pairing them with baggy mom jeans and a cosy cream trench coat. Rising actress Yara Shahidi’s youthful, modern take on the showstopping gold croc-embossed boots features summery white shorts and a navy-blue cape. One of my absolute favourite stylings has to be Dua Lipa’s Jimmy Kimmel look. The 60s style corset dress with the glossy, bright- pink croc-print boots is so effortlessly chic. These boots are truly the perfect staple for every wardrobe!
Paris Texas dupes vs official brand items
Like with any viral fashion sensation, dupes of the iconic Paris Texas boots are available through websites such as Shein, AliExpress and more. Although they are a fraction of the price of the original, they lack a lot of quality. Dupes are not manufactured with long-term usage in mind — they’ll look damaged after months or even weeks of wear. On the other hand, Paris Texas boots last many seasons looking just as gorgeous as when they came out of the box (with the proper upkeep of course)! I also believe it’s important to support the original vision of the designer. Paris Texas is a female-owned business with a lot of passion and heart behind the scenes. Supporting that is worth the time it takes to save up a little more money.
Alternative designer boots brands
When shopping for boots, it’s important to consider three main factors:
- Heel type – do you prefer a block heel, stiletto or a platform? Block heels tend to be comfy and easy to walk in – not to mention that they’re the safest on icy, slippery surfaces during Winter. However, if you prefer a bold, high-impact look, you might want to go for a stiletto boot.
- Length of the boot – ankle boots, under-the-knee, or over-the-knee height? Lower-ankle boots are the easiest to style in everyday outfits while over-the-knee boots add more drama to your look. It all depends on your individual style.
- Material – from leather to suede to nylon, there are many different fabrics to choose from. Patent leather makes for an eye-catching look, but suede boots are more of a stylish classic – you can choose!
With that said, here are a few alternative boots brands I love if the new Paris Texas collection isn’t for you!
How to care for Paris Texas boots
If you’ve decided to go all-in with the most colourful boots, your next priority should be learning how to care for your shoes so that they stay gorgeous and intact for many years in the future. Polishing boots is a super simple process that can help extend your boots’ life and keep them looking their best. Here are my fast and easy steps for polishing boots:
- Start by removing any dirt or debris from the boots using a damp cloth or brush.
- Once your boots are clean, apply a small amount of leather conditioner to a soft cloth and rub it into the leather in a circular motion.
- Next, apply a thin layer of boot polish to a separate cloth and rub it into the leather in a circular motion. Be sure to cover the entire surface of the boots, including the soles, laces, and any decorative stitching.
- Allow the polish to dry for a few minutes, then buff the boots using a clean, dry cloth to give them a glossy finish.
- Repeat the process as necessary to maintain the shine and condition of your boots.
Remember to always use a high-quality leather conditioner and boot polish. To be sure that your chosen products are right for your shoes, test them on a small, inconspicuous area of the boots before applying them to the entire surface. In addition, most high-quality shoe brands will provide you with a dust bag alongside your purchase, so remember to keep your shoes in their protective bag between wears! Here is a useful link to my Amazon Store Page with cleaning products I recommend for the upkeep of leather boots.
