I am a shoe gal through and through. I invest in my shoes and always want pairs I’ll wear again and again. With the return of boot season, I’m sharing the best fall boots for women. This post should give you ideas where to invest in your shoe wardrobe and also how to style pairs you may already own.
Read on for a round up of the best boots that you can wear now and throughout the fall season (and beyond)!
Best Fall Boots For Women
The below pairs I have found to all be TTS for me and I take my usual size 7.
These booties were the best pair of shoes I bought in 2017 and remain a favorite many years later. I can go for miles and miles without any issues with these little booties and I love styling them with both jeans as seen here or with dresses. I get compliments on them whenever I wear them and truly find myself reaching for them in Fall + Winter at least twice a week. They also come in a gorgeous cognac color and in leather.
A beautiful boot that’s made for walking- the Everlane Boss Boots are great. I usually pack these for all Fall and Winter trips because I can walk miles in them. They’ve retired this style but I actually really hope they bring them back for you guys. In the meantime, this pair and this pair from another favorite brand of mine is really similar!
Lug Sole Boots
These Sam Edelman lug boots are equal parts stylish and practical. They are waterproof and got so much wear last year all Fall & Winter. They sold out early in the season but they are restocked for now so grab ’em if interested.
Another style I recently got are the Freda Salvador Brooke Boot that are much more lightweight than the Sam Edelman ones. But also are waterproof!
Over The Knee Boots
Ever since getting these boots in 2014 I have worn them non-stop through Fall & Winter. They also are great to travel with because they collapse down easily. The quality and comfort makes them worth the splurge. They stay up over the knee (a lot of inexpensive brands will constantly slouch down taking away from the elongating illusion over the knee boots are good for) and they’re great over jeans or with dresses. They remain one of my best investments.
These heeled Marc Fisher boots are so good for Fall and Winter that I now own them in two colors. They look as good with jeans as they do dresses and are comfortable for toting around town.
I have the higher heel version.

Knee High Boots
If you prefer a lower heel try this pair.
A similar style with a lower heel and a zipper, the Sarah Flint Alexandra Boot. These have a low tortoise heel that’s as striking as it is practical so you can really trot in these boots. They’re slim to the leg making them very flattering and have a hidden zipper so the boot doesn’t get bulky.
A low heel makes these Rag & Bone boots easy to trot around town. They are extremely well made and comfortable. They’re the perfect neutral color to wear all year round, too!
Round Toe Boot
The Sarah Flint Dress Bootie is the quintessential bootie for dressier occasions all Fall and Winter. Designed with extra foot padding these are comfortable and just so beautifully made. They also have a lower heel version if you’d prefer that.
The classic boots that are essentially a requirement for us NorthEasters!
Pointed toes and embroidered details make a nice change and embrace an on-trend style. I’m not one to wear cowboy boots so I lean into this style in a minimal bootie.
I finally found a combat boot I like with this pair by M.Gemi – a favorite brand of mine for quality shoes.

Most of these pairs of boots I’ve had for years. I take excellent care of my shoes but I also walk in them a lot living in New York. It’s why I invest in pairs and in brands that I know put quality first. So while the above may seem pricey, they have served me well and for much longer than when I buy less expensive boots.
