20 Ankle-Strap Boots You'll Wear Nonstop for the Next 6 Months

Who's as excited for boot season as we are? If you've already swapped your summery sandals, ballet flats, and strappy heels for boots and sneakers (or any shoes that offer a bit more warmth and coverage than the aforementioned warm-weather styles), you're ahead of the game—and clearly a fan of boot season like we are! If you're still clinging onto the last bit of summer—and thus refusing to part ways with your favorite sandals—we totally feel you. Remember: Some (not all) of your more summery shoes can be worn in the fall. Just slip into a pair of socks to avoid getting cold feet.

But it's inevitable to eventually perform to revamp and refresh your shoe closet with more seasonally appropriate picks—and we think the below ankle-strap boots will make the transition much easier (and more exciting) for you. Ahead, shop the coolest styles of the season, from classic black booties to an on-trend snakeskin-print pair, all of which have been designed with some sort of strappy element that instantly elevates them. So, we dare you to try not getting excited about boot season when scrolling through our selection. Happy shopping!
