Trend Gallery: Top 20 Boots for Fall

Boots are back with a vengeance. From high platforms and wedges to flat heels with rounded toes—not to mention all those lug soles and stacked wooded heels to parade around in, we're pretty much thinking we need one of each.

This season's boot styles run the gamut, from tall flats with rounded toes, to stacked heel shorties and fantastic wedges. We've found a place in our wardrobe for all.
Stuart & Wright
The Mars boot from Rachel Comey has an elastic insert for easy slip-on.n($345, Stuart & Wright)
We can’t resist the gold studs (oh how we wish they were spurs) on the New Kid Tonk Boots, which bring a country twang to a style with major urban appeal. ($170, Gargyle)
Opening Ceremony
Opening Ceremony knows how to make a statement without screaming. Ankle Bootie Clogs in red do just that. ($505, Opening Ceremony
Madison Los Angeles
Fiorentini + Baker’s Eli engineer style greased leather boots brass buckle and stacked heel has moto styling with a classic, rough-and-tumble feel. ($525, Madison Los Angeles)
Creatures of Comfort
While Uggs leave us cold, the handmade No.6 Shearling Clog Boot is water-resistant, and cute enough to wear to work. ($355, Creatures of Comfort)
Ryan Cowen
Clunky Doc Martens were once symbols of rebellion; now they’re a classic. Try a pair in gray - Dr. Martens Modern Classic 8 Eye Boot is our pick for the season – for a less overpowering look. ($120, Revolve)
Rock a Lady Gaga look with the Jeffery Campbell Lita Boot. The two-inch platform and five-and-a-half wood heel gives a major lift. The soft brown color tones it down a notch. ($145, Karmaloop)
Manchester Township Police
We couldn’t have imagined a more elegant work boot than See by Chloe Lace Up Ankle Boot; the tasseled laces are the perfect feminine counterpoint to the rugged sole and whipstitch detailing. ($325, Saks Fifth Avenue)
Telemundo San Antonio
We’re a fan of fringe, but if you’re feeling less than fancy, you can remove the boho embellishment from this very much menswear style Aberdeen Two-Tone Boot by Madewell. ($198, Madewell)
NBC Bay Area
Tory Burch, queen of the tunic, gets sporty (kinda – the heel is four-and-a-half-inches high) with Oren canvas, lug sole booties. Though the open toe style still lets your pedi peek through. $395, Tory Burch)
Habitat Shoes
The Wyllow by Coclio cork wedge tie-up booties are comfortable, even practical, yet absolutely on trend. ($415, Habitat Shoe Boutique)
NBC Bay Area/ East Bay Regional Park District police
Lanvin's super tall knee-high leather boots upgrades any outfit from skinny jeans to wrap dresses, and gives us sky-high confidence. ($1,095, Net-a-Porter)
Rachel Comey's Telegram Boot is the simplest pair of everyday boots. (And that they’re handmade in Peru doesn’t hurt.) Tall and flat, with just a hint of a wedge and rounded toe, they’re our go to with denim, leggings, and even dresses when a heel seems too much an effort. ($416, Gargyle)
La Garconne
We’re contemplating a splurge on these Over The Knee Boots by LD Tuttle for Joseph. The distressed leather in dove gray (our go-to neutral) and rounded toe declare these everyday winners. ($1,195, La Garçonne)
Have you not a classic riding boot in your overstuffed closet? We favor the Franco Sarto Rider for a long-lived look. ($189, Piperlime)
In a season of wedges and ties, these Johnny Hates Jazz high heel booties in army green gives a taste of the classic, but will still pair will camo. ($374, OakNYC)
La Garçonne
Perhaps the most distinctive shoe of the season is Acne's Admire Wedge Bootie with buckle that reaches the sole. ($679, La Garçonne)
Telemundo San Antonio
The Jeffrey Campbell Ticket Wedge with Chrome Tacks is so studly we couldn’t stay away. And, the five-and-a-half-inch heel ensures absolute domination. ($168, I Don’t Like Mondays)
Telemundo San Antonio
An inky indigo renders this Castaner Ermelinda platform boot simply fab. Pair it with skinny denim or an edgy velvet mini. ($375, Gravity Pope)
La Garçonne
The Stream by LD Tuttle is the wrap dress of boots. There’s a cutout at the heel and the distressed leather wraps all the way around, then fastens with Velcro. Because really, who has time for those tie-up styles anyway? ($725, La Garçonne)
