13 Rad Hiking Boots For Rustic-Chic Girls

Despite the unseasonable (but very welcome!) warm weather, we still have enduring fall fantasies of hunkering down in chunky Fair Isle knits, sipping pumpkin lattes, and gathering around a campfire. Since we know we’ll start indulging in these cool-weather activities soon enough (and, ahem, well into next spring), we think it’s only right to start planning how we’ll be dressing below-the-ankle now. No footwear seems to suit the season better than a rustic-chic hiking boot (Warning: Take to the trails at your own peril—these boots are cute, but not meant for insane terrains!). After the jump we have 13 stellar options, from totally S.F. hill-worthy walkers to city-bound versions that combine signature hiking style with stacked heels and hidden platforms. Now, who's ready for boot camp?
