Style Tip for Guys: 10 Great Pairs of Fall Boots

Swap your boat shoes for something both durable and stylish.

The wane of summer means afternoons spent sailing the Potomac are slowly being replaced by hikes on local trails. And naturally, as leisure activities traverse the seasons, a guy’s footwear should march in line as well. Translation: Bye-bye, boat shoes; hello, boots.

While über-functional rain and snow boots fall squarely on the “necessities” list for coming months, style creed dictates that you also need a solid pair of casual boots. Think durability with some flair. Once you’ve found the perfect pair, don’t forget to work different techniques to incorporate them into your personal style. Try wrapping longer laces around the ankle or tucking in your jeans (tailored, straight fits work best here to avoid bunching), which will show off the flaps and give you a more casual, relaxed look.
