These Edgy Lace-Up Boots Are A Transitional Weather Savior

Just because your high school glory days are done, that doesn’t mean you can’t rock the same edgy combat boots that you laced up every morning before class — this time, with a little less Daria-esque Weltschmerz (and a little more model-off-duty nonchalance).
Not only are combat boots seriously badass, but they’re practical enough to wade through the tricky transitional weather with ease. And, lucky for us, this season’s modern styles are way more timelessly grown-up than you might remember. So, whether you prefer to pair ‘em with skinnies and an anorak, or a bright, feminine dress for a cheeky spin, click through for our favorite iterations of the ‘90s staple.
