It’s A Boot-y Call! Our Complete Guide To The Season’s Freshest Boots

At this point, unless you harbor masochistic tendencies (or live in a blessedly tropical climate), you’ve likely retired the strappy sandals in favor of some footwear choices offering your little piggies a bit more coverage. But do you find you’re not too enthralled by the options lurking inside your closet? Well, we’re here to help you jump-start your boot hunt.

Here, we’ll break down the season’s finest specimens and highlight some of the dominant style trends in the boot realm. We’ve got all you need to  properly re-boot!

 

BIKER BABE COOL

Rev up your engines with these updated styles — from a zippered bootie mimicking the folds of a biker jacket’s studded lapels, to a standard motorcycle boot featuring buckles adorned with black jewels, and a wedged version with quilted panels.

UNLEASH THE FUR

Turns out your feet, too, have glamorous, champagne taste — and, this season, they want to get draped in lush furs. From fur-trimmed ankle collars to tufts of brown fur peeking out from underneath army green laces and shearling linings that reveal themselves when boots are unzipped or folded over, these picks range from rich to rugged.

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS

Not all girls want sugar and spice and everything nice. Some, in fact, want to play right along with the boys — or, at least, borrow a thing or two from their closets. These boots lean on traditionally masculine silhouettes — from the broguing details seen on wingtip shoes to loafer-like tasseled trims and rugged combat boot shapes.

TAKE A BOW

Here’s a new way to be “bow legged.” This season, designers relied on ribbons and bow details to create feminine motifs that are pretty but not overly precious. That means frayed satin booties with grosgrain ribbon trims, suede bow details with contrast stitching creating a trompe l’oeil effect, and more.

Gone are the skin-tight boot shafts of yore. This fall, many footwear brands are experimenting with edgier silhouettes, designing fold-over styles that droop to varying lengths and feature everything from cone-shaped studs to zipper trimmings, harness-style buckles, and textural grooves.

 STRAIGHT LACED UP

Remember when granny boots and Doc Martens were among the few styles featuring lacing? Well, pull-on boots and zippered styles are taking a backseat this season as lace-up boots bask in their refueled popularity. Styles range from platform ankle boots with tapestry print uppers to woolly high-heeled plaid numbers, military-inspired wedge booties, and equestrian-inspired styles. Lace yourself with some lace-ups!
