Let’s be honest, pretty much everyone owns some variation of the combat boot—whether for style or practical reasons. It’s a form-meets-function piece that’s infinitely wearable—and cool. Fortunately, this season’s crop of styles don’t disappoint. Featuring leaner silhouettes and feminine detailings, no matter your personal style, there’s a boot for you. Ahead, our picks to shop now.
Keep It Traditional
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, as they say. We love workwear boots, especially with distressed denim and flannel. It’s perfect for chilly off-duty days, when sneakers don’t offer enough warmth or support. For this look, think Dr. Marten’s.
Elevated But Practical
If you’re going for something a little more sleek, try Nicholas Kirkwood’s Casati Pearl boot and pair with a shirtdress or high-waisted skirt. A new addition to the label’s pearl-embellished sub-collection, it offers elegance and refinement to a style that usually isn’t associated with either.
If you’re a fuss-free type of dresser—t-shirt, jeans, puffer jacket—then combat boots are likely already part of your style arsenal. To update your look, try these neoprene-trimmed ankle boots from Prada. They’re sporty and smart.
We’re talking crystals and vibrant prints. If you worship at the alter of maximalist kings like Gucci or Dolce & Gabbana, then it’s only fitting you have the shoes to match. René Caovilla’s glittering pair is the perfect accent to any statement look.
