These Boots Are Made for Walking
We’re kicking up our heels with delight now that boot season is here. And with so many ways to wear them — from ankle-skimming to over-the-knee — you’re going to want to stock up. Head to The Shops at Columbus Circle to find the latest, hottest styles. Here’s a sneak peek.
With all the variations on offer, you can consider Stuart Weitzman your official boot headquarters. We’re particularly in love with the stretch-suede over-the-knee Tieland Boot ($798), available in four shades. A bonus: Stuart Weitzman now stocks three different widths to ensure a good fit.
Always on trend, heeled booties can elevate a pair of skinny jeans for an evening out or transform a dress with a look that’s both edgy and feminine. Hugo Boss delivers on all counts with the Uptown Bootie ($445), a pointed-toe calfskin stiletto that has a leather-covered heel and a studded trim.
Taking inspiration from equestrian fashion, the riding boot is a flat-heeled style that is practical, for sure, but never boring. It can add a fashionable flair to a dress or skirt or easily slip over jeans or leggings. Ted Baker has put a feminine spin on the classic silhouette with the suede Lykla ($365) in a goes-with-everything slate gray.
There are moments when pounding the streets of Manhattan can feel like you’re scaling a mountain. So it’s a good thing the Nordic look is in this year. The Cole Haan Zerogrand Explore Waterproof Hiker ($280) is stylish and sensible, with a seam-sealed construction that keeps you dry and warm. And the Pumice Stone shade is just the right white.
The military-inspired combat boot is a look that keeps coming back in style — and with good reason. With its lace hooks and lug soles, it projects the perfect tough-chic image. The Tavie Suede Combat Boot ($199) from Michael Kors comes in dusty rose, winter white, and a classic black. It’s crafted from luxe suede and accented with a combat-cool zipper trim.
The Sadie ankle boot from J.Crew has been called the boot of the season, thanks to Meghan Markle, who wore a pair on her recent trip to Australia. The Duchess of Sussex went for black. We say: Make a statement and rock it in leopard calf hair ($248). Better yet, don’t just stop at one pair. It comes in a range of colors and fabrics, from blue velvet to sparkly silver.
