15 Pairs Of Adorable Boots That Are The Opposite Of Basic

by Rachel Gariepy

Now that it’s gonna be cold for a little while, we have to say farewell to our open-toed shoes and hello to boots! We’re fine with that because honestly, getting regular pedicures is expensive, and boots are the most comfortable of all shoe options. Boots are great for warmth, walking long distances, stability, style, and making a statement. That last part is important. You probably have your basic pair of black and brown trusted ankle boots at the ready. They’ve been waiting at the back of your closet to be let back into the regular footwear rotation, and you’ve got it covered.

But what about shopping for a few pairs of boots that are the opposite of basic? Treat yourself to something that shows off your personal style and makes your whole look pop! We’ve got everything from booties to lace-ups to over-the-knee styles, and not one pair of boots on this list is over $100. That’s right! Even the pairs that look like they just stepped off a runway are totally affordable. So if it’s time for you to stock up on seasonal styles or just treat yourself to something on your fashion wish list, look no further.

Shop these stunning boots that will score you compliments every single time you walk into a room full of people. Trust us; it’s a good thing!
