While many boot styles are essentially codified, brands still create seasonal variations to keep a fresh offering. Leathers and soles are frequently updated, along with hardware and detailing. Some brands also modify traditional silhouettes, shortening the shaft or switching up the toe box. Either way, there are plenty of new boots on the market this fall. Below, check out the 10 styles we can’t wait to wear.
White’s Main Street Boots
These handsome everday boots have a very accessible price point compared to other styles from White’s. Unlike the rugged boots designed for wildland fire fighters or smoke jumpers that are made with handsewn stitch-down construction, these are made in Spokane with Goodyear welt construction. They also feature a full leather midsole and shank, and a 5-inch water-resistant upper. For your money, you’d be hard pressed to find a better value.
Aether Dolomite Boots
California brand Aether collaborated with Italian brand Fracap to produce a modern hiking boot. Based on an army design, the Dolomite boots have vegetable-tanned Italian leather uppers, metal eyelets and Vibram soles. The boot’s stitchdown construction insures they can be rebuilt after years of use.
Ugg Neumel Flex Boots
Uggs have long been favorites of surfers for their superior warmth and comfort after hours in frigid waters. Now, you can get that level comfort in an easy-wearing ankle boot. The Neumel Flex has an elastic gore planel for a secure fit and a Treadlite outsole for great traction in a range of situations.
Tecovas Billy Boots
These Tecovas boots feature a single-piece African python vamp (made from a larger, mature snake) and a calfskin shaft. Available in a brown Saddle colorway that is exclusive to the Python Collection, each boot is made in Leon, Mexico. This boot utilize Goodyear welt construction (so they can be rebuilt), and include soft bovine-leather linings, comfort insoles, leather midsoles and hand-stitched cording.
Wolverine 1000 Mile Mid UFO
These chukka-height boots are inspired by objects floating around our solar system and feature two types of C.F. Stead leather. They have a distressed lugged Vibram outsole and a comfortable leather-topped sock insert. They are a limited edition and are available in sizes 6 to 13 while supplies last.
Lucchese Lincoln Boots
This slouchy Western boot has a 10-inch shaft and a rugged Frontier suede upper. The low-profile roper heel is appropriate for a day of walking and the welted construction guarantees these can be rebuilt. Made in Texas, they have a leather sole and are available in four colors.
Timberland Spongebob Squarepants Boots
Timberland’s classic 6-inch style was given a very unique touch this season with Spongebob accents. The black nubuck upper is waterproof and has references to the cult-favorite T.V. series. The best part: there are kids sizes available as well so if you’re into matching footwear across generations, you’re covered.
Blundstone Style 063
These sleek dress boots come in black, brown and tan, and feature a slim profile and chisel toe. Like Blundstone’s iconic Original 500 boots, the new style has elastic side panels, premium leather uppers, and durable, slip-resistant outsole. They have light midsole cushioning for comfort and padding underneath the heel.
Oliver Sweeney Oxenholme Boots
This vintage-inspired hiker has a top-tier Chromexcel leather upper from Horeween in Chicago and utilizes Norwegian welt constuction for added storm resistance. The design is secured with six d-rings and two speed hooks. For superior grip, it features a rugged St. Moritz hiking sole.
Dr. Martens x Schott NYC 1490 Boot
These two brands created a pair zip boots worth adding to your fall wardrobe. The collab 1490 has a 10-eye black leather upper, slip-resistant sole and hefty side sipper secured by a leather strap. Available October 4, it will run you just $195.
