Boots are one of the few shoe types that I rarely find a reason to discriminate against. Tall, short, suede, leather, studded, buckled—I simply love all styles all the time. However, on the days that I'm required to walk any distance further than the 50 steps from my desk to the office kitchen, I have to leave my heeled boots at home in replace of my favorite flat options. Luckily, there is no shortage of stylish low-heel (I'm talking under 1 1/2 inches), ankle, calf-height, and over-the-knee boot styles on the market. As Nancy Sinatra sang, these (37!) boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do… once you shop them below.
