You know how when a certain time of year rolls around you get this itch to buy something, usually the same thing—a party dress in December, a bikini after Memorial Day? It’s almost Pavlovian? In fall, a new pair of black boots is that thing for me, and probably a lot of other people, too. But like fall coats, they sell out freakishly quickly, so with that in mind, I’ve rounded up my favorite styles to snap up before someone else beats you to it.
From quilted moto boots to slouchy, over-the-knee suede ones, there’s all awesome and they’re all also flat. (Because let’s be real, flat boots are the ones you’ll wear most often, no?) Running for the bus, braving November’s "wintry mix" weather, standing for hours in a crowded bar: whatever you end up doing that makes you want flat, easy boots, you’ll be comfy and confident in these.
