Must-have Boots for the Season
The Fall Boot Edit 2023
It’s finally here! Our favorite season of the year is fall boot season. There is a lot of variety in fashion footwear for the autumnal season and here are some of our favorite styles this year. Topping our must-haves boot list this year are booties, shooties, and heeled boots. Each boot design has a unique silhouette, and all are loaded with features to keep your feet comfortable all day.
This year, on-trend boot styles offer something for everyone. Buckles, lace details, and biker styles are big this fall. Again, nostalgia trends continue with pointy-toed or low-heeled boots that harken to ’90s romantic styles.
Booties: The Versatile Star
What classifies a boot as a Bootie? Booties, or ankle boots, rise to your ankle or slightly above it. A timeless classic that never misses, a quality bootie offers versatile styling for every wardrobe. Lace-up or step-in, booties offer many of the same features as a comfortable sneaker.
A modern classic with delightful details, the Spring Step Garibaldi is a block heel bootie featuring quality craftsmanship, luxurious leather construction, and unique leather button keepers. Not a sacrifice for foot comfort either, as a cushioned footbed and flexible sole add cushion and support. Shown in black.
The earth® Jeno casual bootie features extra arch support and memory foam cushioning for added comfort. Western boots are in season with braided suede detailing. A perfect low-heeled boot option for all year. Shown in Dark Natural, other finishes available.
Birkenstock long ago expanded their offering beyond the classic cork bed sandal, here the Highwood is a mod style bootie that is extremely versatile and loaded with features. Inside, a premium Deep Blue footbed provides layers of support, with a moisture-wicking lining and PU base that optimizes natural walking motion of the foot. Plus, a natural rubber sole for added traction. Available in women’s styles and in several colors.
For a little height and leg lengthening lines, try the Aetrex Frankie bootie. Rich suede leather with every added comfort feature Aetrex is known for, here added arch support, UltraSky™ cushioning, and stretchy gore for easy on and off. Shown in caramel.
Nineties nostalgia in form with modern function in the Vionic Cecily. These booties aren’t afraid to go out because drum-dyed leathers with extra finishing treatment provide superior weatherproof protection. Removable Microfiber Covered EVA footbed and a durable rubber outsole and side zipper. Also available in wide widths.
When Shoes Meet Booties… Shooties
Somewhat new among boot styles, unique, flattering shooties are a hybrid blend of shoes and booties. Lower than booties, shooties cut right below the ankle, providing the comfort of a shoe with the style of a boot.
A closet staple gets an artisan update in the Cobb Hill Laurel slip-on shootie. Featuring a cone-shaped heel, hand-stitched accents, and luxe burnished leather for visual appeal, this boot also has a breathable microfiber lining, interior cushion pod, and an outsole that ensures traction control, stability, and shock absorption. Shown in black, also available in wide widths.
Artisan detail abounds in this hand painted, embossed, burnished, and polished leather shootie. The Zami features inside full length zip and brushed metal pull tab, a padded topline with a soft and supple synthetic leather lining for added comfort all on hand painted leather covered heel.
Calf Height and Mid-Calf Boots
Calf-height boots are perfect for staying warm and stylish on those chillier fall days. Like booties, calf boots pair well with both casual or dressy occasions. A quality calf height or mid-calf boot should also offer some environmental protection as well as have built-in foot support for comfort.
The Dromedaris Klara is built for all day wear, without sacrificing a striking on-trend look. This high ankle boot has adjustable triple buckle straps and a zipper on the inside. The outsole is made of Thermo-plastic rubber, treated to give it that leather stack finish.
Created by Bos. & Co, this modern round toe moto boot of saddle/suede/tweed is an awesome addition to the closet. Not just for looks, the Genus Prima boot is both warm and waterproof lifted by a sturdy lug sole with G2 Ice Grip, a specialized compound that provides unparalleled traction on wet ice and slippery surfaces.

Dromedaris has all the features like a removable “4D Technology” footbed for odor absorption, anti-microbial, anti-fungus, and high-density recovery foam that never flattens. The rocker bottom offers enhanced walking motion and less strain on the back. Shown in teal, wides also available.
