I think my obsession with boots started over 10 years ago, in London, with a dear friend who goes by the name Patti Black. Patti and I discovered we had a mutual love of shopping, particularly during fall, when boots are available. Patti is now living in London, I miss her, and if I called her today I know she would tell me all about her fall boots.
Allow me to show you a few of my favourites,
Jill Sander also has an outstanding black riding boot.
The thing about riding boots is that they are terribly comfortable and therefore are the perfect fall/winter boot. Brown is also a solid choice, Chloé did a nice one this season.
So did Rachel Comey.
Alternatively, you can choose the short boot, I own these Fiorentini and Baker boots and have worn them to death.
Fiorentini and Baker are famous for the motorcycle boot, but I have gotta be honest, I don’t like them. It’s like spending over a thousand to look tough. Tough people don’t buy it.
After the riding boot comes the heeled boot, I don’t think these ever go out of style, unless of course the toe is pointed (see toe above).
