I Have Yet to Buy Winter Boots This Season, so I Expeditiously Found These

I did a very un–fashion editor thing this winter: I neglected to buy a pair of fresh boots before the influx of bitterly cold weather. Essentially, I've been rotating the same few pairs all season, wearing them nonstop until their unsightly disintegration. It's not necessary to buy a new pair every year, but as someone who proclaims that boots are her favorite type of shoe and prepares a style mood board before each season changes, it's a pretty big deal. Considering we're in the thick of winter and my go-to boots are on their last legs, I feel like now's the time to finally pull the trigger. 

For all my procrastination, I found that there's a bright side to shopping this late in the game. Thanks to all of the post-winter sales, a lot of the styles I've been eyeing are priced way less than they were just a few weeks ago. Suddenly, splurging on an extra pair is looking real nice. To share the wealth, I took note of the cutest boots I've seen along the way and gathered them here. If you're keen on a specific style, I've also broken them down by category, so keep scrolling and pick your favorite.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
