While we can all appreciate a glittery pump, a jewel-encrusted sandal or a sky-high stiletto, we’d all still pass them over for a sturdy, sensible and comfortable shoe if we had to choose one to wear for everyday. And for this fall/winter season that’s getting increasingly colder and colder, we can’t choose a better everyday go-to shoe than a good ol’ trustworthy boot!
Check out our top 5 picks for boots this cold-weather season, all guaranteed to be able to take you all over the city. Although we couldn’t resist sneaking one boot in a trendy style, it’s still a very versatile and all-around boot, which is also surprisingly as popular this fall/winter as it was last spring/summer.
The low suede ankle boot
First on the list is this low suede ankle boot, the shoe style that was a surprise hit last summer. The Isabel Marant ‘Forbes’ reigned as the supreme must-have suede ankle boot followed very closely by the Joie ‘Elvis’.
This ‘Jamison’ ankle boot from DV by Dolce Vita absolutely gets those two boots’ style, without the high price tag of course. For something with more color choices, you can also try the Steven by Steve Madden Pembrook ankle boot which is also an affordable alternative at $99.99.
The motorcycle boot
Next up is this rough, tough and ready to ride motorcycle boot. We love this boot’s knee high height as opposed to the usual mid-calf length. Miz Mooz is also known for their great fit so this is truly one you-can’t-go-wrong boot.
Miz Mooz Kellen motorcycle boot, $162.93 to $239.95
The classic riding boot
For those who believe that classics never go out of style, this timeless riding boot from AK Anne Klein is IT. This comes in five different colors but this medium brown is the perfect color to pair with warm plaid flannel shirts, dark wash jeans and classic cut peacoats.
AK Anne Klein Craslee leather riding boot, $113.04 to $169.98
The flat over-the-knee boot
We believe that thigh high boots have become a wardrobe staple now but for something more subtle and easier to wear, we go a little lower to just over-the-knee. Over-the-knee boots still have that sexy, vampish look but couple that with a flat sole and you’ve got one stylish yet still functional everyday boot.
Chinese Laundry Night Owl over-the-knee boot, $79.64 to $94.95
The waterproof boot
For those dreadful weather days when all you care about is staying warm and dry, a hard-wearing, ultra-warm, waterproof boot will take care of you. This Sorel boot has been tried and tested in extreme weather conditions so it should do its job of keeping you warm and dry without you having to worry about them for a single moment.
Sorel Helen Of Tundra II, $109.98 to $149.95
