What We Considered
Our Picks

Now that swimsuit season is officially behind us, we’re looking to show off a different kind of bootie. That’s right—boot season has arrived! We’re finally giving our beloved strappy summer sandals a well-deserved break and calling our fall booties to the front lines. Of all the classic autumn traditions we love, shopping for the perfect pair of booties to round out our fall-to-winter uniform comes pretty close to topping that list. 

When it comes to hunting for this closet staple, practical and comfortable never have to equal boring with all the options available. As with all great things narrowing down your perfect, versatile bootie to keep complete your fall look and still be weather appropriate, might take a little bit of effort. But you’re in luck! We’ve scoured the internet to bring you the best, curated assortment of The Verticale-approved brands who are killing it in the bootie game.

Whether you’re in the market for a timeless Chelsea boot or looking to push the boundaries of everyday style with an edgy, classic motorbike boot— there's a range of bootie styles, materials and prices sure satisfy every taste. 

So scroll down…we’re going shopping!
