Boots Gone Bolder Part I November 7, 2009

Boots come and go. Now, they’re back and they’re bolder! This season’s hottest boots are taking a big step from the typical boots we have come to know. Different styles not only offer warmth during cold months but also make good fashion statements.

Wedge Boots provide great support during those slippery winter days when snow and ice abound on the street. Also, these boots make more comfortable footwear when you need to stand and walk for long periods of time.

Try this pair of American Eagle Phoebe Laced Wedge Boot with smooth faux suede upper and soft cloth lining. Not only do they feel light on the feet but for $44.99, they are also light on the budget.

If you want to splurge a little more on fashion, these Juicy Couture Montana Quilted for $425 boots may suit you well. They are made of soft velour with quilted diamond detail, with round toe, rubber platform, and lugged soles for more traction.

Fancy rubber boots are also great to wear during those wet, slippery days. However, rubber boots are usually associated with road work and not so fashionable jobs. This season however, there is nothing proletariat about these chic rubber boots.

Take these Randi boots from Kate Spade at $129 for example. These exquisite boots will turn heads on the street. Rich, shiny rubber, with pretty wrap around ribbon detail and two-inch rubber heels,  this pair is available in Lipstick Pink and Black.

If that’s too much for you, Target’s Women’s Dot Spots Rain Boots ($24,99) will surely give you the look you want.  There’s nothing about those cute and colorful dots that say menial. Plus, both colors – Light Berry and Gray will go with many outfits.

Flat boots are also becoming popular this season. From leather to suede and denims to canvas, these boots are mostly suitable for going to the mall or just doing errands. However, some people may find it painful to wear totally flat boots. No one wants to feel the grits on the ground.

If you are one of those people who can’t stand on flat shoes for a long time, these Taryn Flat Leather to-the-knee boots by orthopedic surgeon Taryn Rose may help you with your problems. Designed with Poron® memory foam padding, built-in arch support, rubber soles, and leather lining, these boots promise comfort. Not only that, the neat topstitching and polished calf leather speak high quality fashion. You can choose between walnut and black. For $ 325, these boots are a great buy.


On the other hand, these adorable Driskell Flat Boots by Aldo Shoes are not bad at all. Also made of leather with rubber sole, round toe, and interesting wraparound straps that tie at the back, this pair is available also in gray and black suede for $54.98. Definitely worth a try.

If rubber boots are associated with menial activities, riding boots are linked with sports and masculinity. Not anymore. This season, riding boots are sought after by many for elegance and gracefulness that of Audrey Hepburn.

For a sharp look, try these Santucci Riding Boots by Aldo Shoes. Detailed with mutliple buckles and bold round toe, this pair not only promises edged look but also comfort to your feet. For $160, these boots are available in classic colors – black, gray, and dark brown.

Available in Bordeaux and Spice, they are available on The Frye Company website for $498.
