These boots were made for walking … and shopping, dinner, drinks and gallery hopping. A quick stroll around Bal Harbour Shops and you’ll see it’s all about the boots this month. And soon enough the weather will feel that way, too, so now’s the time to get shopping while the selections are abundant.
Here’s a handful of options to keep you stepping out in style, all season long.
Tory Burch’s Jess riding boots welcome the season with its rich maple-colored leather. An elegant gold buckle adorns the back of its heel for a subtle flourish that still maintains the “Easy Rider” vibe.
Ralph Lauren’s Isareen vachetta riding boot gives us the traditional equestrian-formed boot made with elaborate buckle accents, fine vachetta leather and a short stacked heel. These are the kind of boots that get better with age and that you can be sure you’ll pull out of the closet again next year, weathered to that perfect look.
Balenciaga’s Papier riding boot is sure to attract attention with its neo-Victorian style and slim silhouette. The delicate wrap-around ankle buckle references an equestrian aesthetic, but refined for a more urban experience. Skinny jeans will slide right into these boots, day or night.
Lanvin’s Side Stripe boot is not your ordinary knee-high, pullover boot. For starters, nothing designed by Alber Elbaz could be considered ordinary. It’s a timeless silhouette with just enough heel to give your evening a boost or replace a daytime heel with this casual cool style.
Boot perfection—but what else do we expect from Hermes, the house built on an equestrian heritage? We’re always looking for a hot over-the-knee boot to add a little sass to our stride. And this neutral tone will give you a leg up on coordinating with the closet.
Chloé gives us the quintessential motorcycle boot this fall—with just a touch of femininity that makes them feel more Champagne than beer. A large ankle-strap buckle is no nonsense, and the delicate slope of the mouth provides a softer edge we’d be happy to embrace.
A touch of menswear inspiration sets this bootie from Salvatore Ferragamo apart from the rest. The Tomasa flat booties will work well for nearly any occasion, and can be paired with jeans or tights or even cut-off shorts if temperatures permit!
There’s no other color that screams FALL! like a rusty maroon. And we’re loving these Wayland short leather boots from Michael Kors. This meticulously structured bootie can be paired with a casual dress over tights, or paired with a leather mini—one of the season’s top trends.
Gucci’s Victoria equestrian flat leather riding boot stands in a category of its own—literally. This one-of-a-kind boot presents a classic structured boot with an unexpected twist: a calf buckle that gives this boot a little extra edge and a nod to its Victorian inspiration. Stride confidently in this pair!
