To wax poetic about boots is to know the true value (and versatility!) of this iconic footwear staple. Appropriate all year round—but particularly instrumental during the colder months—the best boots for women tick off each and every box when it comes to an investment-worthy piece.

Of course, just as no winter coat is exactly alike, boots silhouettes continue to unfold into various categories. But the common thread found throughout all boots is that they communicate a certain sort of confidence. To march around in a pair of boots is a choice, certainly not an afterthought.

Naturally, which pair of boots you choose this season will be based on a series of considerations such as climate, aesthetic, and personal style. But regardless of where your preferences land, the season’s collections are chock-full of options worth adding to your wardrobe. Ahead, Vogue curates over 50 to shop right now.

The Chelsea Boot

A forever classic, Chelsea boots are said to date back to the Victorian era. They’re distinguishable by their side elastic detailing, making it effortless to slip on (and off) with total ease. Keep it slick and streamlined with a pair from The Row, or opt for a sturdier silhouette with chunky lug soles.

The Kitten Heel Booties

Give your arches a break and go for a pair of booties designed with low-to-the-ground heels. Kitten heels add a certain polish that flat boots might lack, but make it easy to wear them all day long without any foot fatigue.

The Knee-High Boot

Knee-high boots are the answer to winter’s call for stylish—but practical—footwear. Wear yours tucked under a midi dress or skirt to keep your legs warm, or tuck your trousers into them for a prep-inspired look.

The Over-the-Knee Boot

While over-the-knee boots are undoubtedly bold, they can be styled according to the individual’s wardrobe. For a more statement take, wear yours with a mini hemline. Otherwise, they pair with dresses and skirts just as you would your knee-highs.
