Every Style We’re Adding to Our Fall Boot Line-Up

For the sartorially-inclined, boot season is finally here.

fall boot trends

There are certain things that your brain associates with the fall season. Crisp air, the leaves changing color, anything pumpkin-related and, if you're sartorially-inclined, boots also take a place on that list. Nothing says Autumn like slipping your *hopefully cashmere* socked foot into a beautiful leather boot (at least for the fashion obsessed).

This season, trends range from short zip-front styles to slouchy heeled knee-highs. Of course, the lug-sole silhouette continues to persist thanks to one Bottega Veneta. But, don't get too caught up in the timely fads. One can never fail with the purchase of a classic pair of ankle boots with a short heel or a sleek riding boot. Below, we've denoted five styles to add to your wardrobe ahead of this fall season.

Zip Front

A riding-boot-derivative, this classic style features an exposed zipper down its front. Though always a functional silhouette, it's popularity was burgeoned by one particular boot from The Row.

Knee High

From classic riding boots to slouchy heeled varieties, a knee-high style is a must this season. Wear yours with a pair of tucked-in straight-leg jeans or peeking out from beneath a dress or skirt.

Slouch Boots


Classic Ankle

While trends come and go, you can simply never strike out with a classic ankle boot. We suggest a small heel and a slightly square toe this season.

Lug-Sole Chelsea

The lug-sole trend continues and you can thank Bottega Veneta for this one. A riff on the classic Chelsea, these babies up the ante with chunky rubber soles.

Bottega Veneta


If your ensemble is in need of a bit of edge, opt for fall's modern combat boots. We suggest indulging in Proenza Schouler's sleek silhouettes, but a classic pair of Docs will never fail you.
