Lately, I can’t help but have my eye on fall fashion. Not only am I looking forward to the cooler weather, but I'm particularly excited about the great pieces that come along with it. Sure, chic coats, stylish sweaters, and hoodies are all in focus, but really great boots are what I'm most interested in at the moment—especially a splurge-worthy designer combat boot.

In the past, combat boots were pretty straightforward. They commonly came in simple, black, laced-up designs, but now more than ever, the selections offer a variety of details to satisfy just about any personal style. If you're looking for an edgier pair, there are sleek picks with fashion-forward touches like bold stitching. If you're looking for something trendy, then a great lug-sole pair is your best bet. Going for something more classic? A pared-down style will always be a go-to.

Scroll on to shop 32 of my top designer combat boot picks to see which pair speaks to you the most. You'll be wearing these investment shoes for many more seasons to come.
