25 Shoes to Wear with Bootcut Jeans, Now That Skinny Jeans Are Done

Shoes rank as one of the most important pieces in a look. They have the power to transform any ensemble in an instant, so it's essential to pick the right footwear (because, yes, certain shoes simply look better with certain pieces). Since skinny jeans are on the downfall (Sorry, Millenials), many are opting for more relaxed denim. There are countless other pieces to hone in on, but today we've decided to highlight the best shoes to wear with bootcut jeans because we know that can be, well, a tad tricky.

Bootcut jeans have a slight flare—they don't have a super-wide cut, but they're certainly not straight leg either. In order to ensure the billowy bottoms look streamlined, it's best to pair them with shoes that add some height. Simple heeled booties are a great comfortable pick, and pointy-toe styles that ever so slightly peek out from the pants are a fun (but safe) choice, too.

Next time you're unsure about which shoes to pair with your bootcut jeans, turn to our easy-to-follow guide. Below, our favorite boots, heels, and sandals to wear with the jeans.
