We Can’t Get Enough Of These Extra Sturdy Combat Boots

We love a fancy stiletto boot just as much as the next person, but when truly cold weather hits, we can't help but lean towards a look with a little more comfort and stability. Anyone who has, for lack of a better phrase, fallen head over heels this time of year can attest to that. So when a reimagined selection of military boots sprang up this season, we were more than ready to try them on for size.

And reimagined they are. While Dr. Martens have always been an option, this year's combat boots have seriously stepped up their game. From contrast stitching and lifted lug soles to zebra prints (yes, zebra!), you won't find any boring military-grade boots here. Ahead are 19 boots that each carry a flair of their own.
