Boot season is in full swing, and if you’re planning on adding a new pair to your closet, now is the time to order the ones you’ll be wearing for the months ahead. But which styles are worth investing in? While fall trends from the runway shows are a great place to start, my impulse is always to see which styles the fashion set is wearing in real life. And right now, I’m looking at boot trends hitting the streets of Paris.

Between all of the outfits spotted during fashion week and recent looks we’re seeing from the stylish locals, there are plenty of covetable boots appearing on the streets of Paris right now. Whether you’re in the market for true statement boots like Chanel’s metallic thigh-high version or everyday ankle boots with a signature embellishment, there’s a wide range of styles that fashion girls are endorsing for fall. Scroll down to see which boots styles are popular in Paris right now and to shop pieces inspired by the biggest trends.
