The warm air of summer has been replaced with brisk fall winds and with it a whole new wardrobe for us to indulge in. Cable knit sweaters, classic black tights, plaids and tartans, and of course, a really great pair of boots. From combat to knee-high to suede to bootie, fall’s boot options are bountiful.
We asked our editors to give us their take on the perfect boot—which ones stand up to the wear of New York City’s unforgiving streets and which are most in sync with their personal style. Some opted for more practical pairs while others were swept off their feet by pairs that made a statement. Commerce Writer Alexis Bennett has her eye on a pair of fall boots from Ulla Johnson—they’re infused with a touch of the Southwest but built for city living. (See her up above.) Executive editor Jessie Heyman was inspired to purchase the safari leather boots by Loeffler Randall after spotting Margot Robbie sporting the same pair last year. Market Editor Naomi Elizée went for a statement-making-pair of Dries Van Noten boots that’ll make onlookers green with envy. No matter the look, this post serves as proof: fashion and function can be friends.

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say this: I really, really struggle with boots. Every year when is gets too cold to bare my ankles, I get flustered. My style skews incredibly lady like (if I do say so myself) and so the idea of chunky, clunky boots makes me want to run in the opposite direction in my pointed toe kitten heels! A couple years ago, I picked up these suede boots by Sarah Flint and their loveliness did everything I needed them to do: keep me warm without adding any weight whatsoever to my look. When I shop for my next pair, I’ll basically be trying to recreate them.
