Essential Winter Boots: Fun and Function

Essential Winter Boots

It’s always disappointing when the time comes to store your chic summer sandals away for another year. Fill that void by indulging in a slew of stylish winter boots! Just don’t let yourself get carried away with buying ones that are all for the same purpose or occasion. With a little organization, you’ll have the funds to cover all of your boot necessities, whether they require walking, standing, or singing in the rain.

Boots Made for Walking
Lanvin Suede Wedge Ankle Boot: I swear by these. They’re so comfy that you can walk the whole stretch of Manhattan without feeling a thing. I wear them so often that I run them into the ground and have to buy a new pair every other year (completely worth it). At Barneys New York for $690.

Boots Made for Walking in Wet Climates
Lanvin Leather Wedge Ankle Boot: Suede has more give and comfort, but I realize not everyone lives in L.A. If you make your home in the rain, sleet, or snow, go with this midnight leather pair. At Bergdorf Goodman for $790.

Evening Boots
Paul Andrew Zebra-Print Calf Hair Peep Toe Bootie: Trendy animal-printed calf hair gets added flair thanks to Paul Andrew. At Bergdorf Goodman for $1,695.

Rain Boots
RED Valentino Bow Rain Boots: While rain boots are one of the more utilitarian necessities, you don’t have to get the same basic black pair everyone else has. Go sweet with RED Valentino’s patent leather bow. On Shopbop for $195.

Seasonal Boots
Nicholas Kirkwood Ponyhair Scalloped Ankle Boot: Three trends for the price of one! Take spring’s graphic black and whites into fall with equally trendy Western-style, ponyhair boots. At Barneys New York for $1,140.

Work Boots
Gianvito Rossi Buckle Strap Knee Boot: Get a view from the top in your office with these tall mocha-hued boots. They’ll keep your spirits and heels high even at the end of the longest days. At Barneys New York for $1,725.

  1. I feel like maybe none of you live in a place where winter is actually cold because NONE of these boots would be appropriate for where I live…
