Great news: Ankle boot season is coming. It's safe to say that most of us buy at least two or three new pairs each fall (or even just one investment pair). And with the plethora of options on the market, narrowing it down can be a sartorial challenge. Practically every brand that makes shoes makes ankle boots when fall rolls around, but there are a handful of brands that stylish women really tend to gravitate toward each year, and that handful of brands fluctuates a bit from year to year, as new ones enter the scene.
While ankle boot fever hasn't quite set in on Instagram yet this year, based on a few factors, such as the brands that were gaining steam last winter, the current It shoe brands in general, and the brands that are selling out, we can say with confidence that these seven will soon be all over your feed, the streets of fashion month, and your most stylish friends' feet (and yours!). Scroll on to shop our favorite options from the top ankle boot brands of 2019.
What did we all do before By Far shoes? Not sure, but luckily we don't have to worry about that. The It brand has really been amping up its selection this year, and we can't wait to see what it has in the works for fall.
By Far Este Leather Ankle Boots ($510)
By Far Lada Nutella Croc Boots ($509)
By Far Becca Snake-Print Laced Booties ($594)
Dr. Martens became the affordable '90s brand on everyone's feet (again) last year, and we're quite sure that that'll be the case once again this fall and winter.
Dr. Martens Combs W 7 Tie Boots ($90)
Dr. Martens White Jadon Retro Quad Boots ($170)
Dr. Martens Leona 7 Hook Boots ($160)
Of all the fast fashion brands, it's Mango that makes the shoes the fashion crowd gravitates toward the most. It's the number one source for all the current trends at a price point that's easy to swallow.
Mango Heel Leather Ankle Boots ($100)
Violeta by Mango Animal Print Leather Ankle Boots ($75)
Mango Croc-Effect Ankle Boots ($80)
Paris Texas is another brand that started to blow up last year, with styles selling out left and right. Based on how beautiful the early fall ankle boots we've seen thus far are, expect to see Paris Texas everywhere from Paris, France, to Dallas, Texas.

ICYMI, one of our favorite denim brands makes shoes now. They're ridiculously comfortable, and the chic ankle boots were very quick to make their way to the feet of celebs and It girls. We expect them to stay there.

Paige London Booties ($192)
Paige Hadley Boots ($180)
Miista is a London-based brand that may not be a household name, per se, but its Spanish-made shoes are constantly worn by influencers and plenty of other stylish, in-the-know women who want chic, well-made boots that not everyone else will have.
Miista Zelie Taupe Croc Leather Boots ($415)
Miista Edith Patent Leather Ankle Boots ($405)
