It’s pretty much mandatory to have some good boot options going into the fall and winter season. Blacks, browns, and tans are the standard options and must haves, but if you’re adding onto a collection that you already feel pretty solid with you can also start experimenting with other colors like blues and greens. Here are some styles to consider that are currently on trend and versatile, but are also pretty classic and will last you for years to come if you take good care of them.

1. Chukka Boots

Chukka Boots are a super versatile style of boot that anyone can work into their wardrobe. The style first came to prominence in the 1940’s and 50’s, but as you can see Zac Efron rocks them in a way that looks modern and so can you. What’s nice about this style as that they work for both a dress downed denim look but can also add some interest to a dressier look. They’re generally calfskin or suede so they will wear in nicely with use. This pair from Marc New York will go with pretty much anything.

2. Combat Boots

The combat style of boot, sometimes called a troopa or troopah, takes a nod at the 1990’s grunge aesthetics but still looks put together since it’s not actually a grunge item. Steve Madden has rolled out some options for guys that rival their popular women’s line. The boots lace up and go above the ankle, so there’s some space to work with when you want to tuck your pants into your footwear. These leather boots are totally functional as well as stylish, and are a good way to keep an outfit a little more trendy casual without dressing down. In the image above Hayden Christianson is rocking (and showing off?) a pair of military boots from All Saints.

3. Wingtip Boots

The wingtip style of boots is a dressier option that is a must for pairing with suits for those holiday parties. These are definitely an investment piece since you want them to be great quality that will last.

Ted Baker’s option in tan is a super polished looking option. These boots will also relax with wear but since they’re a dressier option you might want to  do what you can to keep them scuff free and maybe opt for a different pair when you’re jumping in puddles. In the photo above Daniel Craig demonstrates how they can dress up a pair of jeans as well.

4. The Chelsea Boot

The Chelsea style of boot doesn’t have laces at all but rather just slips on with some elastic panels around the ankle.

This version from Urban Outfitters is suede with a rubber sole, totally seamless and straightforward. The Chelsea boot is great with denim and t-shirts, and about as comfortable as your sneakers would be.

5. The Boat Boot

These boat boots from Aldo look more like a sneaker than like a lot of boots out there, but in this case that’s a great thing.

This particular pair is half real leather and half faux on the upper, and the textured tread and white soul gives them a more casual look. These are the perfect all day every day boot to wear whether you’re running errands or watching a game at happy hour.
