As Nancy Sinatra sings, ‘Boots are made for walking’ and might I add, for strutting and stomping down the street or in the office with sass. Whether it’s a cowboy boot, a Ralph Lauren riding flat, or the newest thigh-high high heel numbers, boots are like a Super Hero staple in a women’s wardrobe. They can knock down tall men with a single wear. Never fear, this guide will assist you in bringing out your inner boot bitch.

The best womens boots will hug your calves with the softest leather and the most comfortable soles. Women and boots always go together so don't fight your urge to buy the finest black boots or other leather boots.

The Best You Can Get

  • Prada Linea Rossa Stretch Boot

    Jess says: This Prada stretch boot has a great futuristic gladiator look and feel. The artistic detail of the leather keeps in line with the gladiator styles that are so popular now and the flat heel, square toe and kick-your-butt attitude of the stretch fabric makes this a really unique boot experience.




    • Black leather with stretch fabric insert
    • Elastic scrunch detail for easy fit around calf
    • Side zip, square toe, flat heel, rubber sole
  • Trotte Buckled Suede Boot Christian Louboutin

    Jess says: I am absolutely in love with these boots. For as much as I pay for my rent, these Christian Louboutin stand out with ultimate chic luxury. The super high heel is supported by the incredibly sexy silver trim buckle and then of course the peek of the signature red sole. Can my birthday come early this year?




    • Belted detail with silvertone trim
    • Crescent toe
    • 4 7/10” heel
    • Signature red sole
    • Made in Italy
  • Calanda Lace Up Knee Boot Manolo Blahnik

    Jess says: For several seasons, “they” have been predicting the emergence of the thigh high boot. Looks like Manolo Blahnik hit it out of the ballpark with this one. Worn over super skinny jeans or leggings, be careful you don’t pass into prostitute chic with this ultra-sexy statement boot. For those of 5’4” and under, the length of the boot can be somewhat of an issue. I’ll be sticking with knee-high.




    • Black nappa leather
    • Square toe
    • Lace-up shaft
    • 4 1/10” covered heel
    • Line runs small so order half size larger than you typically wear
  • Verlaine Boot by Ralph Lauren - Cuoio

    Jess says: The color of this boot really caught me off guard. But I guess it’s in the subtleties that we find style. Ralph Lauren is known for its equestrian-chic classic look. This heritage-inspired riding boot updates their traditional look in supple vachetta leather with vibrant canvas detailing.




    • 15” circumference at the widest point
    • Full-zip closure up the back with leather heel-tab
    • Presented in a felt pouch inside RL signature purple box
  • Stella McCartney Leatherette Ankle Boot

    Jess says: I wanted to include an ankle boot in with the big girl boots because they are still so popular and it would behoove a woman to have a pair in her wardrobe. Stella McCartney is known for her fashion forward designs and these add just the right amount of Hipster cool to any outfit. Plus she uses all animal-friendly materials, so the leatherette material of the bootie makes for a more fashionably friendly world.




    • Black cracked leatherette ankle boot
    • 4-inch stiletto heel
    • Merino sock attached to top
    • Almond shaped toe
    • Italian sizing

You will be happy with any of these

  • CL by Chinese Laundry Women’s Flashlight Boots

    Jess says: These boots are as sexy as the high-end picks but at a fraction of the price. Easy to pull on, the pointy-toe and knee-high length make this a must have for your closet.




    • Side zip entry for easy entry
    • 4-inch heel
    • Available in black and mocha
  • Soho Lab Shiloh Boot by Sketchers

    Jess says: The chunky heel of this boot gives it a much more appropriate look for the office or casual wear. Plus, the extra support makes for comfy walking and wear. Great over jeans or paired with a knee-length skirt and V-neck sweater.




    • 15 ½-inch straight stretchable shaft
    • Full length size zipper, cushioned insole, traction outsole
    • 3 ½-inch chunky straight high heel
  • Karolyn by Adi Microsuede Short Stiletto

    Jess says: These are a great sexy slouch with a high stiletto heel. Perfect when paired with leggings and big hoop earrings. They are a diverse shoe in that they’re not as hip as the ankle bootie but not as traditional as the knee-high. A fresh and affordable take on the boot.




    • Wrap design with tie detail
    • 3-inch heels
    • Available in black, brown, purple, and grey
  • Steven by Steve Madden Harness Boots in Brown

    Jess says: I am a big fan of the riding boot. It is a classic that makes most outfits look elegant. A signature look of mine is dark denim tucked into a riding boot and paired with a vintage tee under a fitted suit jacket. Very Gossip Girl. The price tags on these Steve Madden’s make the look without spending the loot.




    • Knee-high riding boots feature a zipper in the back
    • Boots feature snap closure
    • Available in brown or black
  • Simple Dot Rain Boots from Target

    Jess says: First introduced to the contemporary world of fashionistas by a most chic Kate Moss, rain boots have recently become a staple for girls everywhere. These funky boots in dramatic red will certainly catch eyes whether you’re dancing in the mud at a fab music festival in England or rocking it in the rain at home.




    • Mid-calf rain boots
    • Rubber upper with rubber outsoles and Tricot lining
    • 1” all-terrain heel
    • 12”-high boot shaft
    • Features side gusset buckle closure
