When the clock strikes October, there’s just one thing on my mind for the next 31 days: witches. Yes, that’s right, I am deeply devoted to pop culture’s season of the witch and all things magically macabre. Not only is it a great excuse to finally wear head-to-toe black again, but the autumnal equinox also singles that it’s time to fully embrace fall fashion with coats, capes, and caps. Since I’m not actually a witch (and if we’re being honest, one can only own so many capes), I tend to channel my spooky seasonal style below the knees by conjuring up several new pairs of on-trend boots to go with my everyday uniform of jeans and leather jackets.
Below, you’ll find 15 witches from our favorite spooky movies and TV shows that have magically guided me to this season’s best boots. Whether you’re square-toed, flat-footed, wide-calved, or need a sleek shoe for sashaying around graveyards and gripping broomsticks, these first-class witches have a knack for fulfilling the desires of fall fashion–loving mortals everywhere. Accio shoe polish!
