Inevitably, with every fall, I have a new boot craving. This year, I've been hoping for a short, flat, black pull-on style that can be worn with leggings and legging jeans — something unfussy, comfortable, and not too butch-looking. And not terribly expensive either. And finally, I think my shoe prayers have been answered.The Biker Boots, $230, madewell.com
Behold, Madewell's biker boot. It's got a really nice balance between rugged and refined, so it's tough but not to the extent that you look like you just stepped off a Harley every time you wear them. The vents at the top of the shafts add to their femininity somehow, and I like that there's very minimal hardware — just a little antique nickel stud for cinching the ankle strap. The soles are thick but not too thick, and while the toe is round, it's tapered enough to give these boots some sleekness. Plus, they come in at $230, which isn't cheap per se, but will quickly pay off from a cost-per-use perspective given how wearable these things are.
What's on your fall boot wish list?
