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 spring.
