35 Brown Boots That Are Anything But Boring

When we're looking for the perfect boot to take us through winter, we tend to gravitate toward simple, black styles. We know they'll go with everything in our wardrobe, and with the right care they'll keep their original hue throughout their lifespan.
Brown boots are a whole different ball game. There are many more shades and textures to choose from, but, oftentimes, the styles feel less inspired, and the material can look a little cheaper (even if you're paying for premium leather). But, that isn't always the case — in fact, there are plenty of iterations (we found 'em) that will have you reconsidering the shade altogether.

Whether you tend to strut into the office with your heeled ankle booties or prefer the calf-hugging comfort of a flat, knee-high version, we're making the case for a brown-boot winter. See all of our favorite styles, ahead.
