Wear them with skirts, pair them with jeans — these boots are made for walkin’, workin’ and playin’ too. Find the pair that’s right for you and prepare to look “bootilicious!”
Naya Woman’s Saffron Boot
Rugged, yet chic, these veggie-tanned leather boots play well with military inspired looks. The mid calf length and wrap around straps, keep the look casual and cool, and we think the olive hue is a nice alternative to the traditional blacks and browns. $240 with free shipping at www.shoes.com.
Bamboo Valencia 05 Chestnut Slouchy High Heel Riding Boot
Sometimes, you just can’t beat the classics. That’s the case with this beautiful and economical slouchy boot. The vegan leather has that distressed, “broken in” look that adds instant style. It’s a go-with-everything boot that will be around for years to come. And, at only $49, it is an investment piece without the investment. www.lulus.com
Novacas Sullivan Boot
If you still don’t own a knee-high casual boot, whatcha’ waiting for? We like this pair for the oh-so-soft microfiber material that makes them more comfortable than stiff leather (not to mention easier to get on and off). Plus, the heel height is ideal for keeping your dogs from barking all day and well into the night. $206 at www.cowjonesindustrials.com.
Cri de Coeur Florence Tasseled Wedge Boot
The dog days are over in this fashion forward design, named after Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine fame. Faux patent material, an asymmetrical design, trendy wedge heel and flirty tassels make a bold statement that is music to your feet. $495 at www.cridecoeur.com.
olsen Haus Peace Boot
Even though we do not support the wearing of real fur, we do feel that we have to bring you the latest trends and leave the rest to you. That is why, with fur accessories being all the rage, we are featuring this faux fur vegan boot for those of you who want to look the part without taking part. Right on trend, sexy and stylish. ON SALE FOR $251.97 (normally $360) at www.amazon.com.
