I Went Boot Shopping—These Nordstrom, Mango, and Zara Finds Are Stuck in My Head

The best fashion season is boot season, and when temperatures start to drop, there's nothing like dressing up with a cute new pair of fall boots. Though I don't wear them as often in sunny Los Angeles, that doesn't mean I love them any less. Plus, they still work in warmer temperatures if you style them right! Because shoe shopping is my lifeblood, I happily spent hours looking through the boot sections on Nordstrom, Mango, and Zara this week in order to round up the best possible pairs. From designer finds to affordable yet luxe-looking styles, you're bound to find your new go-tos with the shoe offering below. 

I made sure to include a variety of shapes, heights, colors, and textures, so there are knee-high kitten-heel boots, chunky Chelsea boots, and everything in between. If you're in the mood for some fall boot shopping (don't deny it—I know you are!), keep scrolling for the 29 best boots from Nordstrom, Mango, and Zara.

Freelance Fashion Editor

Lauren Adhav is a freelance fashion editor based in Los Angeles. Originally from Orlando, Florida, she always wanted to work at a fashion magazine. After finally getting an internship at Town & Country in 2015, she moved to New York City and continued to get her footing in the industry with stints at Cosmopolitan, W magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and Moda Operandi. In 2017, she returned to Cosmo full time, starting off as the beauty and fashion editorial assistant and working her way to fashion editor. She contributed to both the website and print issues, pitching new ideas, forecasting trends, covering red carpet events, and informing the overall coverage and brand voice.

After five years in NYC, she moved to the West Coast for the sunshine and the change of pace. As a freelance fashion editor, she still contributes to Cosmo and now Who What Wear. She's always trying to get ahead of the next big trend before it goes mainstream and loves discovering fashion brands with a unique point of view (Chopova Lowena, Sandy Liang, and Bode being some of her current favorites). She also spends an unhealthy amount of time online shopping for the perfect piece, and now that she's in L.A., she's rediscovering her soft spot for malls. On the weekends, you can find her walking around the Silver Lake Reservoir, trying to catch up on her tan at Venice Beach, and probably ordering a Chinese chicken salad at Joan's on Third.
