The modern cowboy boot adds a hint of chic ruggedness to any outfit. No longer just a ranch shoe, this boot takes to the city streets when paired with tailored pieces like a suit. Detailed topstitching, a Cuban heel, or a sleek pointy toe with a metal accent reveal careful craftsmanship.

Surprisingly versatile, snakeskin feels especially edgy and fresh this season, most notably in a bold color. For a bigger statement, try a two-tone bootie or even a multicolored option for a new take on the bold texture.

The white boot trend isn’t going anywhere. We love the various silhouettes, especially with clean, minimal detailing. Elevate your denim with a simple pointed toe, or dare to add another texture to your collection with an embossed version.

Shearling and faux fur welcome the colder seasons with both warmth and style. Embrace a lug sole when trekking through the fallen leaves, and try a fun pair like these red velvet Mr & Mrs Italy boots to add a pop of color.

While a thigh-high boot is sexy, there is a quieter appeal to a boot that just hits at the knee. A thicker heel makes it feel classic, and the look is undeniably versatile, pairing well with a minidress or skirts.

In velvet, gold embroidery, and rich color, there’s something wonderfully luxe about an embroidered shoe. Let your boots be the focus of your look, whether as a complement to monochrome or a way to mix prints.

Say goodbye to simple black combat boots. This season, the beloved style is updated with desert tones, studsplaid patterns, and quilted details that are anything but boring and feel a little more elevated.
