Long gone are the days when you can step outside with foot-baring shoes, like sandals and flip-flips, sans anything else—the anything else being a pair of socks. Luckily, though, the socks-with-sandals trend is alive and well. Really, see how these girls are making this shoe mistake so cool again. But if this isn’t a footwear pairing you’re totally on board with, you can always count on a good pair of fall boots—and this season, there are plenty of styles worthy of adding to your lineup right away.
We’re all for tall, slouchy boots, especially when paired with a silk midi skirt or a maxi dress. We’re also loving the resurgence of the square-toe ’90s bootie, which we’re predicting will be the biggest boot trend for fall. Adding to our fall footwear roundup, then, is today’s focus: the best low-heeled boots, because not everyone wants to trek around on four-inch heels, especially when you have a lot of miles ahead of you.
Low-heeled boots offer somewhere between one and two inches of height—perfect if you’re looking for a little boost without the possibility of getting some serious foot pain. And they’re just as cute and stylish as their taller counterparts. Need proof? Read on to see and shop our favorite low-heeled boots for fall, and get ready for the compliments to start rolling in.
