As soon as Fall came around the corner, I knew I had to look for a great pair of boots. After last season, guys were definitely kicking up their boot collections. I did lots of research, but it wasn’t until last weekend that I actually found a pair of boots that I saw myself wearing constantly. I’ve gotten several e-mails that tell me I’m not the only guy having this problem. Therefore, I thought I’d share my research and tell you how I got to the point where I handed my credit card to pay for the perfect pair of boots.
Before my search started I already owned a pair of L.L. Bean Boots and several pairs of Wallabees. If you’re just starting your boot collection, then I suggest you get your hands on a pair of each of these. They are definitely an essential to everyone’s closet (both guys and girls)! They are both great for rainy days, snow days, or even just a cold fall day.
I recommend the 6″ Bean boot to start off. Unless your duck boots are being used on a daily for inches of rain or snow, I don’t see a reason to buy some of the taller boots. Feel free to check out some of the other sizes and colors here—> Men’s L.L. Bean Boots
Regarding Wallabees, you really can’t go wrong with any of them! I own high tops and regular wallabees in all colors! Check them out here —> Men’s Wallabees
Desert Boots were definitely another pair on my list. I like that they are similar to Wallabees, yet still have a more rugged personality. They give your outfit an “effortless” look. Throw on a pair of jeans with a sweater and finish off your look with a pair. I personally prefer the brown leather pair and original suede. Clarks has recently come out with different variation for this original boot and I can’t wait to get my hands on another pair. Check out the originals and the new concepts—> Men’s Desert Boots
Chukka Boots seem similar to Desert Boots at first glance, but they are in fact very different. Chukka Boots have more structure and they are a little more sophisticated. Wear them with a pair of jeans or have a little fun and add them to your Sunday best! The great thing about Chukka Boots is that there are so many colors! Cole Haan did a great job at giving you options to match your personality. Find your perfect pair here—> Men’s Chukka Boots
My final pair of boots are the Chelsea Boots. These boots are rugged, classic, and stylish. A plus for some of you may be that they do not require shoe lasses! My favorite pair come from H&M at a great value! Check them out right here–> Men’s Chelsea Boots
