The Boot Book

Style for All

Whether it’s animal prints all day or cozy knits or plaid aplenty, there’s a boot for every mood this fall.

There’s a reason boots are perennially a fashion must for fall — there’s one for every taste, as these Fall 2020 styles show. Looking for casual cool? Uptown style? Sneaker feel? Check, check, and check. Another reason boots top the list: There’s no better or more versatile style to check all the boxes consumers are looking for. “The traditional categories of shoes are being transcended, people are demanding shoes that they can wear from the gym, to the office, and then to a dinner party,” Rachel Carmi of Bernie Mev says. “If one of our designs can’t be applied to more than one setting, then we don’t move forward with the design. By understanding that today the lines and boundaries between categories are blurred, we get more creative with our design and more intelligent about our market.”

Making styles that perform in all those different categories has spurred new functionality in classic fashion styles, making for the perfect marriage. That blend is fundamental to the entire brand ethos of Pendleton footwear as it enters its second fall season, according to VP of sales Margaret Doran. “We’ve combined high quality, functional footwear with the beauty and heritage of an iconic brand like Pendleton. It is an absolute standout in an otherwise crowded landscape where lots of boots and brands look the same.”

Pendleton Waterproof Torngat Trail

This rain/cold weather lace-up boot pairs function and fashion seamlessly: Its rubber-traction outsole, waterproof leather and wool upper, which is in the brand’s bold Spider Rock pattern, are accented by a faux shearling collar. MSRP $140.

Lifestride Kunis

The classic combat boot is hotter than ever. This refined, feminine take on the look keeps the lugged outsole and familiar silhouette, but makes it office-ready with an of-the-moment embossed croc upper and ribbon laces. MSRP $89.99.

Remonte Chandra 54

With a sleek silhouette and short stacked heel, this lace-up boot is a classic, but it’s anything but boring: Deep burgundy leather and tartan fabric upper panels add style; a removable insole, the substance. MSRP $145.

Alegria Charlette  

A rugged lugged outsole and classic harness boot details are all business. But Alegria’s Charlette style flexes its softer side with graceful lines and a romantic, all-black embossed floral shaft. MSRP $189.95.

Sporto Calynn

Sweater weather? This boot is ready. With a double dose of cozy thanks to the knit shaft and plaid-lined fold down upper, this weather-resistant style will go anywhere the day takes you. MSRP $59.99.

Quoddy Chukka RL

Handcrafted in the brand’s Lewistown, ME factory, this leather chukka is rugged and durable enough for the hard jobs and comfortable enough to take things easy. It gets its slipper-like feel from its moccasin construction, which wraps around the foot, and its breathable insole system. MSRP $300 and up.

Propet Ford

Classic cap-toe styling in an on-trend chestnut hue are the goes-with-everything footnote every wardrobe needs. MSRP $99.95.

Dankso Chloe

Comfort, but make it cozy. The Chloe takes the foot cradling support of Dansko’s iconic Professional Clog and adds a slouchy knit collar to give the style a warm, snuggly upgrade. MSRP $160.

Vionic Kaylee Suede Knit Ankle Boot,

Sure, this boot boasts arch support and a biomechanically oriented construction, so it’s comfortable all day — even with a heel. But it’s the suede upper, refined almond-shaped toe and cozy knit collar that make this ankle boot in luxe cream winter white #goals.
MSRP $169.95.

Giorgio Brutini Houston  

This men’s hiker boot is functionable fashion personified: The pairing of a waterproof dress-boot upper with a flexible, athletic-inspired outsole looks fresh and stays comfortable all day. MSRP $59.99.

Rieker Cordula 43

Sunny yellow makes everyone smile — pair it with an easy-wearing sneaker boot look and a textured, grippy outsole and you have a day-in, day-out winner. And don’t be afraid of a gloomy forecast: the water-resistant Rieker Tex coating means these boots are good to go anytime.
MSRP $115.

Soft Comfort Jonelle Sweater Cuff Boot

A studded buckle detail and fold-over ribbed sweater cuff adds the oomph to this stacked heel women’s look. And it’s easy-on, easy-off thanks to a medial zip entry. MSRP $59.99.

Soft Comfort Magono Lace Up Hiker

Classic hike style — check those D-rings and the faux-fur collar — makes for a versatile look that works all day. MSRP $59.99.

Secret Celebrity Jennifer Cuffed Lug Bootie

Moto style is the name of the game for this ankle-height bootie. A faux shearing fold-down cuff and suede upper give a trend-right edge to a classic shape. MSRP $59.99.
