In Combat

by Amanda Bedgood

Tough boots that kick it now and later

Super tough boots are perhaps fall's most must have when it comes to footwear. The combat variety have been alive and kicking for a few seasons and arrived in full force this summer with shorts and little dresses and promises to stay strong through the cooler months come fall.

While a basic pair will surely do just fine, we picked a few of the statement variety to keep things a bit unexpected. Over at Shoe La La leopard boots are the right accompaniment to an otherwise simple ensemble like easy cutoffs and a black tank.

At Maven Womenswear a pair of gray and black combat boots are the right move with a funky outfit and the wild aztec prints we just can't seem to get enough of this summer. Try with a stripe dress or even a flirty floral skirt.

For the more basic, but still standout, Genterie downtown carries an amazing new pair of Tom's for men. Their newest line of socially responsible wares are a step above anything we've seen thus far and just the sort of boot that goes from super casual now through fall.
