These boots are made for walking — and jumping into fall leaves, strolling through apple orchards and kicking back around the bonfire.
Fall boots and booties are a wardrobe staple, and with so many colors and styles to choose from, they quite possibly take up quite a chunk of that wardrobe when October rolls around.
After cleaning out your shoe closet and retiring those that have worn out soles and scuffs, take inventory to see which trending style you need to stock up on.
Western and cowboy booties were super in for Fall 2021, so we’ve included them again as a separate category down below.
For now and every time of year, make sure to check out Chelsea boots in every color in both leather and suede. Then grab a pair of peep-toe booties for date night when you want to show a bit of skin.
