When you think of Fall season, swanky boots are definitely one of the top few essentials you’d want to add to your wardrobe. This must-have item conveys both function and fashion, and is the centrepiece to any fall ensemble.

So, set aside your strappy sandals and bring your A-game to the streets. From high-end to high-street, we’ve rounded up some of the best and most stylish boots from the Fall/Winter 2018 runways so you can get yourself a kick-ass pair, no matter your budget.


Sculptural-heel boots

From Marque’Almeida to Balmain to Prabal Gurung, boots with architectural heels have been scene-stealers at the runways. They are quirky, unique and would bring an interesting twist to your outfit. A huge fan of Jacquemus’ abstract heels? You’d love these.


Boots knee-length and above

Aside from being a trend spotted in the shows of fashion houses Etro, Alberta Ferretti and Giambattista Valli, the thigh-high boots are also a functional shoe option if you’re travelling to cooler climates this month. Pro-tip: Get boots that are slightly longer and scrunch it downwards till it falls below your knees — this look is hot this season.


All-things sparkle boots

From Altuzarra to Dolce & Gabbana and Rochas, dazzling boots with eye-catching embellishment are all the rage this season. After all, who can resist these shiny, metallic shoes? We know we can’t. Here are some options to carry off that sparkly look with sophistication.


Animal printed boots

The fashion crowd and celebrities have fully embraced animal print this season. Far from going out of style, it’s a trend that has now infiltrated all manner of fashion, from apparel to accessories and footwear. Seen on Miu Miu, Sacai and Rochas, the python and leopard printed boots are two of the more versatile shoes that would last you for a few seasons to come.
