One of the best things about winter (besides the rain, sleet and snow) is all the fabulous boots! Short ones, tall ones, big ones, small ones. This is the time of year to splurge on that pair you've been eying. From wild colors to gravity-defying heels we've narrowed it down to eight of our faves.
The Alexander Wang Savannah Woven Black Boot will take you from a day of shopping with the girls, to date night with the beau. The lace-up front gives them a delicate detail while the low, chunky heel and round toe give it a rugged edge.
How does he do it? Christian Louboutin never ceases to amaze with his sky-high heels, carefully studded detailing and of course those signature red soles. These bad boys have recently been spotted on the tootsies of some fashion forward celebs like Khloe Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan,
With the sleek look of a riding boot, and the quilting detail up the side we can't help but to love these Steve Madden Reggo boots. They sit just below the knee with an awesome asymetrical cut, making those sexy stems look even longer!
Dolce Vita knows women's shoes, and every year they bless us with a new collection of must-have boots. We just want to say 'thank you', this Calla Taupe bootie is totally wearable with virtually everything. The front half is spiced up with a snake-skin looking print, which definitely adds to this shoe.
Allsaints Spitafields; a longtime favorite in the UK and US. Always featuring a rather rugged shoe collection with distressed leather and straps galore , it feels like Lara Croft meets Rihanna. The Antigone boot is tall, sultry and made from buttery soft leather and the practical heel height makes them perfect for any outing.
The idea of being "caged in" sounds a little scary, unless you're talking about your feet in a pair of some of Givenchy's best ankle booties yet. The Patent Leather Caged Ankle Boot is one of a kind, not to mention a real head-turner. With a sophisticated, black patent leather cage desgin this boot will steal the show both on and off the runway,
Jimmy Choo is known around the world for cutting edge designs and bold color schemes. The Alanis Calf Hair Ankle Boot in Leopard is an absolute work of footwear art. The sleek, narrow shape combined with the smooth texture of calf-hair tames the wild nature of colorful leopard print. These boots are definitely worth the splurge!
The YSL Tribute Bootie in Black Suede might be just what we needed this winter. A strikingly feminine stiletto, a plush suede and an ever so tiny gold detailing that adds just the right amount of bling. YSL's signature stacked platform is on the bottom giving the illusion of a super-tall heel, minus the discomfort. This boot is sooooo Jones!
