After witnessing their notable revival on the fall 2012 runways, more and more designers pursued new and exciting ways to carry knee-high boots over into the spring of 2013. While it’s true that a warm season is meant to be celebrated in easy sandals, comfortable ballet flats and sexy pumps, there’s no denying in the fact that the knee-high boots can be all of the above and more this season.

From comfy flat renditions perfect to complement your spring floral dresses, to high-heeled vampy interpretations meant to spice things up in your wardrobe, this spring and summer is time to push the boundaries and embrace the new styles. Worn with bare legs, skirts, shorts and dresses, knee-high boots are gifted with an entirely new identity. Find the best picks of the season, right after the break.
