Need to Have It: The Silver Venice Boot

Boy George, these are the boots we've been dreaming of. The big wide world of below-the-ankle style is having a particularly great year, but of all this season's footwear trends, metallics really are our favorites. After a long and dedicated search for the one pair truly worthy of pulling the trigger on, we found them, and they're chic, wearable and actually affordable. Keep reading to find out why these are the boots we're currently pairing with our ankle-grazing denim, leather skirts, and fall floral dresses alike.

These vegan-friendly boots are from the iconic Simply Vera Vera Wang collection at Kohl's, which is currently celebrating 10 years of proving that great style really doesn't have to come with a cringe-worthy price tag. Her Venice Ankle Boots are hands down our current must-have: The block heel is super sidewalk-friendly, and the metallic upper couldn't be more on trend if it threw on a belt bag and checked blazer.

Guys, how many times do we need to say it? Silver boots are where it's at this season. That being said, we're making a conscious effort to shop a little savvier, because we all know how it goes: One freak snow-storm and your fall footwear has had it. Honestly, the more we think about it, the more $89.99 is exactly the right amount to spend on any potentially ill-fated pair of shoes this time of year.

Easy: You'll find them right here. They're available exclusively at Kohl's, and we'd be doing you a huge disservice if we didn't mention that they also come in black velvet. We'll be over here joyfully reminding anyone who asks that awesome boots don't have to cost an entire paycheck.

FYI, we've been eyeing up a whole lot of seriously good (and ridiculously affordable) footwear at Kohl's—check out the full Simply Vera Vera Wang collection.
