I'm a fashion editor, so loving boots pretty much comes with the job. That said, my obsession with the shoe style goes above and beyond what's considered normal in my field. For starters, I wear them—specifically knee-high styles, though I'm open to all varieties—all year long, no matter how humid or hot New York City tends to get in the late summer. Then there's the bit about me wearing them inside almost every single day during lockdown just to pretend I was going somewhere worthy.
All this is to say that there's nothing I love more than when, come early fall, all the best footwear brands drop their new boot collections. And since September is quickly approaching, that sweet spot is happening right now. Given that I'll be shopping them all anyways, I thought I'd go ahead and round up all of the boots that I'm most excited about for fall, from Western styles to knee-highs and everything in between.
