Winter weather is here.
After a long summer and with winter in full swing, we're welcoming the black boot season with open arms. Easy summer outfits and, by default, summer-friendly shoes gave our toes ample time to enjoy some vitamin D. But their exposed status has also meant three to four months of dirty feet and frequent at-home pedicures. They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, and our depleted nail salon funds have us anxiously awaiting a season where we can cover everything up.Of course, we aren't planning on completely giving up our open-toe sandals until the deep, cold temperatures of winter pry them from our frosty feet. But we are willing to let ourselves re-adopt walkable ankle boots. To make the idea more bearable, we have rounded up 39 must-have fall boots, all under $200. Tell your toes that it's not them, it's you, and prepare to bundle them up in any one of the picks ahead.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

When we think of fashion staples, we think of boots. No matter what the temperature, they're the shoes we want to be wearing, and they come in so many different styles, colors, and materials that they just can't get boring.

Whether your style is classic, edgy, or fashion forward, we found a pair of shoes that you're going to live in throughout the year. It's hard work, but someone's got to do it.

The 2021 lineup is rife with utilitarian boots, animal print, and Western-inspired styles; these are the picks to buy now and wear all year long. No matter what your style is, there's a chic pair of boots to match. Related: 15 Cute Boots From Amazon That You'll Want to Wear This Fall
