Hear that? It’s the sound of coats being buttoned up, wool hats getting dusted off, and boots being zipped up as the temperature starts to drop for fall. Fashion’s favorite month is upon us, and as surely as you needed a denim mini dress and pool slides in summer (necessary), you now need to make this season’s biggest investment and snag yourself a new pair of boots.
Like last fall, over-the-knee boots are the style to have—but in the interest of not cursing your footwear during the morning commute to work, we’re all for investing in a flat pair. Not only are they comfortable and effortless, but they’re also appropriate for pretty much any situation, whereas their high-heel counterparts are likely a fashion don’t for the office.
With this gallery, you can shop 16 of our favorite flat, over-the-knee boots in stores now. There’s a little something to suit every budget, so start shopping.
