Today, I wanted to focus on those heavy hitters that you can get lots of use out of—you know, those styles we all can't seem to get enough of. I've highlighted a selection of three classic boot styles that will continue to occupy our mind space in 2023 and Beyond.

Ahead, shop a wide variety of boot selections that'll please any and all tastes. Calling all the sartorially inclined— you don't want to miss out on hours of digging for these top-notch product picks. I can't think of a better way to enter 2023 than with boots made for walking confidently through the year.

A little lift never hurt anybody. The exaggerated height of platforms has been capturing the hearts of retro style lovers for decades and continues to do so.
