The Best Tall Boots for Fall

It’s boot season (the best season), and our trusty booties are all ready to go. But consider for a moment: could a tall boot be the key to recharging our wardrobes? There’s definitely an argument to be made - they pair beautifully with all skirt lengths (particularly the ubiquitous midi), and they might just feel a bit fresher than a bootie under shorter length pants. From slender heels and lace-ups to classic flat-riding and Western styles, there’s a tall boot that's perfect for you. Check out our picks for 12 of the best out there right now.

Loeffler Randall Gia Boot

What’s not to love about a classic style done in the creamiest of cognac-colored leathers, and with a manageable two-inch heel, er, to boot? Nothing, nothing at all.

Jerome Dreyfuss Sandie 50 Boot

Jerome Dreyfuss knows his boots and bags, which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering he's half of one of today's biggest fashion power couples (Isabel Marant is his wife). We love this suede pair with its refined cowboy-vibe, and the 2-inch heel make it a go-to for almost any day.

Frye Melissa Tall Boot

Last year, marked 155 years of Frye, so there's no question the brand knows their boots. Signature Classics like their Harness and Engineer boots will never fail, but we’re also fans of this lace-up style with its vintage edge. (Don’t worry, there’s a zipper on the side, so no lacing and un-lacing required.)

Rag & Bone does a popular bootie version of these, but the knee-high in this glossy reddish leather is more elegant. They also come in cream and black.

You can't go wrong with Isabel Marant's Denvee suede knee-high boots. Pair them with long, flowy skirt or a tight midi.
