While we'd be more than happy to spend the next few months in our beloved square-toe heels, there will come a point in the next couple of weeks when sandals just won't cut it any longer. That's right: boot weather is upon us. As all of our favorite brands and stores are debuting their new collections, there's no better time than the present to start thinking about what new boot trends you'll be investing in this Fall, and luckily, there are plenty of chic options to choose from.
Whether you tend to lean toward classic styles (Who doesn't love a good animal print?) or are looking for something a bit more fashion forward, this season's best and biggest trends have got you covered. On this year's particularly fun menu, you'll find trends such as croc-effect and work boots, while square toes and slouchy boots are sure to bring back some memories, and Victorian styles will add a touch of romance to your Fall looks.
Ahead, take a closer look at the nine shapes that are making it big this season, along with our favorite iterations at a variety of price points, and then check out the other Fall shoe trends that are making us want to shop.
