Shoe Porn: 11 Fall Boots We Love

From Western we'd gladly wear to turn-of-the-century style capable of going the extra mile, fall boots are anything but boring. Here, 11 picks our calves are craving:

 

 

1. Wild West: Sparkling studs and a distressed leather finish add fun to the Call-of-the-West Booties by Frye, $498.

 

2. City Slickers: A very different take on cowboy chic comes in the form of Giuseppe Zanotti’s Stitched Western Boot, $825. 3. Shoe Polished: The Eliza, $198, from Banana Republic offers a streamlined, season-defying shape with a slight slouch that will effortlessly go from day to night without breaking the bank.

4. Knee Highs: At $99, the price of the Chinese Laundry Tripin pull-on boot is right for testing out the season’s over-the-knee trend. Also, wide 16” boot shaft makes these a good bet for larger calves. 5. Cut it Out: The Matt Bernson Vesper, $260, strikes a dainty silhouette with peep toes and cut-out detailing on the sides.
6. Not-So-Plain Jane: Designed by Jane Alridge of Sea of Shoes, these Urban Outfitters exclusives, $158, combine lace-up drama, high heels and peep toes into show-stopping boots with vintage-minded appeal. 7. Weekend Warriors: The laid back Kudla mid-calf boot, $70, from Aldo pairs ultra casual styling with of-the-moment edge, thanks to flat rubber soles and buckled straps wrapped around fabric uppers.

8. Getting Adjusted: The elastic back closure of the Cydwoq ApolloC209, $200, not only adds visual interest to these ruggedly elegant style of these mid-calf boots, but also means you can don them with tights one day and jeans the next with a perfect fit every time.

9. Wet Bet: The faux lace-up print of these Marc by Marc Jacobs rubber rain boots, $195, stands out even on the dreariest of days.

10. Twisted Ankle: The Chie Mihara Katja ankle boot, $498, in basic black suede is ultra-versatile, yet still manages to stand out, thanks to cut-out leather detailing on the toe and a hidden platform.

11. Past Perfect: Step out in Victorian-era style with the Libby Smith by Fluevog, $289, long known for creating heels that are as comfortable as they are cute.
