There’s no question that a great pair of boots can transform your wardrobe. From rugged to casual to dressy, the right pair adds the perfect finishing touch to any look. Don’t feel like you’re limited strictly to winter when it comes to wearing them, either. The modern boot world is rife with styles that seamlessly transition from winter to spring, with plenty of options to wear throughout fall, too. What’s on our radar? Here are a few picks of the moment that we can’t resist.

Clarks Desert Boot 2

Since its inception in 1950, the Clarks Desert Boot has been an unrivaled favorite for its combination of comfort and stability. The new Desert Boot 2 builds on the superior design of the original, offering enhanced features that cushion your feet with every step. Available in an array of colors, this handsome boot looks right at home with anything from khakis to jeans.


Grenson Colin Chelsea Boots

You don’t have to look far to find all-day comfort when you step into a pair of Grenson Colin Chelsea Boots. These are designed with convenience in mind — and that’s obvious at a glance. Simply pull them on and you’ll be ready to face the day. The chunky sole adds a distinctive touch to the otherwise sleek suede shoe.


Nisolo Andres All Weather Water-Resistant Boot

What’s a little wet weather when you can rock a pair of Nisolo Andres All Weather Water-Resistant Boots? These handsome shoes check every box, providing the exquisite feel of smooth leather coupled with endurance. A flexible rubber sole promotes all-day wear, while the water-resistant finish means you can wear it all the time.


Taylor Stitch The Moto Boot

Meet the newest interpretation of an old favorite. Taylor Stitch The Moto Boot is seemingly unparalleled in its construction: there’s a double leather cap toe, Goodyear welt construction, a Vibram sole, and an insole fully lined with both leather and foam for optimal comfort. It’s a prime choice for work or play — the very antithesis of the traditional moto boot.


The Frye Company Grady Chelsea Boot

If you appreciate a little height and are inspired by western style, you’ll appreciate the thought that went into constructing The Frye Company Grady Chelsea Boot. A clever combination of country-and-western-meets-city-chic, these unique boots are made with full-grain leather and feature a distinctive pull-on style — along with a no-nonsense heel.


Timberland Earthkeepers Boots

The ground is your nearest ally, keeping you rooted to Mother Nature’s beauty in every way imaginable. A pair of Timberland Earthkeepers Boots supports your connection to the planet, providing the benefit of a sturdy outsole built to handle tricky terrain with ease. Supple leather adds a handsome touch, while partially recycled lining nods to your sustainable side.


Levi’s Rugged Casual Hiker Chukka Boots

The chukka is among the most classic boot styles available. Levi’s Rugged Casual Hiker Chukka Boots honor the time-tested style beautifully. Just as much a favorite today as they were in the UK in the early to mid-20th century, these boots are made with synthetic vegan leather and feature a durable rubber sole that will support your every move.


ARIAT Wexford H2O Boot

When you need a shoe you can truly wear anytime and anywhere, look to the ARIAT Wexford H2O Boot. Its waterproof leather upper alone makes it appealing, but the weathered finish lends it a slightly distressed look that’s perfect for partnering with your most rugged jeans. The footbed is cushioned for slipper-like comfort, too.


L.L. Bean 8” Bean Boots

Say hello to an old standby. L.L. Bean 8” Bean Boots are the same classics you may have worn as a kid. They check every box where your comfort is concerned, combining Portuguese chamois flannel lining with a sturdy upper made with full-grain leather. Then there’s the distinctive chain-tread bottom made with flexible rubber, making it perfect for those brisk days.


TAFT The Jack Boot

If you’ve been on a seemingly endless hunt for the perfect pair of dress boots, your search stops now. TAFT The Jack Boot is so utterly handsome, you’ll want to wear them with cropped pants just to show off their magnificence. The brand’s signature shoe captures a sense of old-world charm with its minimal design, while a rubber sole and plush lining add practical details.


Sperry® Authentic Original Tumbled Chukka Boots

The ultimate outdoorsy boot label introduces their Sperry Authentic Original Tumbled Chukka Boots that combines the classy appeal of the chukka with the rugged quality of a boat shoe. The two worlds unite surprisingly well, yielding a shoe that exudes conservative vibes yet that’s as rugged as your favorite pair of lived-in jeans.


TAFT The Dragon Boot

Talk about fierce. TAFT The Dragon Boot breathes new life into any look! This refreshed take on the label’s original Dragon boot feels more modern thanks to its highly flexible Ridgeway sole and fashionable extras. Who can resist that waxed leather and those distinctive gold eyelets? The combination is inarguably timeless — and this style easily goes from casual to dressy.


Whether you’re going dressy, casual, or something in between, you need to know that there’s more to the world of footwear than loafers and sneakers. A hybrid boot can change your sartorial viewpoint considerably, while styles designed specifically for hiking, wet weather, and formal wear will add a fresh twist to your wardrobe. That’s the kind of versatility we’re all about in 2022.
