Ankle or knee length, flat or well heeled, warm-and-fuzzy or urbanely polished, it's the year of the boot, and never before have there been so many options to choose from. We hunted high and low to bring you the best, from the luxurious to the sanely priced (which means plenty for under $100).
See the top boot trends of the season, 15 great new styles under $100, and scroll down to browse over 70 styles in nine categories!
Your Boot Search Is Over
The most affordable, great new boots this season.
Sweet and Low
We love short boots because they're young and trend-conscious. Pair them with full-length pants—skinny, straight leg, bootcut, or wide leg—for the chicest results.
Midcalf boots make a statement without too much height and are perfect with a to-the-knee skirt.
High and Mighty
For instant attitude, you can't do much better than dramatic height.
Big calves are an inherited trait (no amount of diet or exercise will shrink them). But there are plenty of accommodating boots, and you can get your favorites tailored to fit (a shoemaker can replace a zipper with elastic).
If it's raining chains, these natural puddle-jumpers will do the job.
Hybrids at truly great prices (yes, these are under $40!).
Vegan boots that have nothing crunchy-granola about them.
19 styles that will be your go-tos this season.
Snuggly, fuzzy and fit for a blizzard.
