Boot season is back, everyone. I don’t like to pick favorites but boots are one of my favorite shoe categories and I wear them any chance I get. All of the coolest new styles have started to arrive on the market and I’m already trying to decide which pieces I’ll be adding to my closet this fall. I tend to be drawn to the classics, so I’m particularly excited about the fresh takes on riding boots that just dropped, but I can’t ignore some of the cult designs like Balenciaga’s Cagole boots that are continuing their popularity into fall.

Whether you’re after the trends so new they’re just starting to arrive on the market, practical designs to hold up to the elements, or timeless staples you can have in your closet for years, I’ve rounded up some of the coolest fall boots I’m eyeing right now. Ahead, see the styles topping my personal shopping list.
