I Never Wear Brown Boots, But I'm Converted Thanks to These 25 Styles

I could talk about boots forever. It's just my thing. The two wall shelves that house my beloved boot collection—ranging from tall snakeskin pairs to point-toe sock boots and some lug-sole action—are currently bursting at the seams with them. Just about any style is enough to get my heart going, but there's one pair you will not find within my collection: brown boots.

While definitely a classic, the shade has always been overshadowed by trendier prints or colorways (and the number one staple, black) when it came to my affections. Call it ignorance or being behind the curve, but I'm finally changing my tune, and the below pairs of brown boots have a lot to do with it. The color has been popping up everywhere I look, and now, I'm seeing them in a whole new light.

Thanks to a few people with great style on the 'gram, I've found some fresh ways to incorporate brown boots into my outfits. The first step is to just choose a pair. Keep scrolling for all the immaculate brown boots I can't get out of my head.

You could easily fool everyone into thinking they're designer.

Take a break from black boots and try a deep shade of brown to wear with all of your denim.

These are weird, eclectic, and cool at the same time.

Leave it to Simon Miller to create the boots of my dreams.

This pair is still relatively new on Zara, so scoop them up now.

Wear these with a beautiful winter floral dress.

A wood sole adds a bit of a boho vibe.

I have no doubts these are deceptively walkable—most Loeffler Randall boots are.

Suede boots are another style on my wish list.

If you're a fan of the whimsical, these are a worthy addition to your closet. 

A chain detail is just the thing to spice up a pair of light-wash jeans.

If you couldn't tell by now, yes, I'm really into chains on shoes right now.

For those with thicker thighs and calves (aka me), the stretch panel is a savior.

I love this unconventional shade of brown. It's slightly gray and slightly chocolate.

Since the '70s trend isn't going away anytime soon.

Because of the sleek square-toe shape and the gorgeous shade of auburn brown, I'm already making outfit plans for this pair.

Ganni is undefeated in the boot arena.

Perfect for flowy dresses, casual outfits, and everything in between.

Style these with black tailored pants and a white button-down for a crisp, classic look.

True story: I love every pair of shoes from Miista.
