17 Lace-Up Boots To Wear With Everything

Despite all of the boot trends that have tried to woo us over the past year — from animal print boots, to hiking boots, to the perennially fashionable over-the-knee boots — there's one style we still run home to every time: the lace-up boot. Because the badass, combat-inspired look never goes out of style. And if we’re honest, we hope it never does.
 
Fortunately, there's no shortage of lace-up boots on the market. Whether it's the classic Dr. Martens or an edgier, platform variation of the silhouette, the lace-up boot looks just as good with high-waisted denim and a T-shirt as it does a dress and a belted blazer, which might be why it withstands the fleeting trends that come and go season after season (that, and they're actually practical for any and all weather conditions).
 
Since the lace-up boot isn't just another fad (it's here to stay!) click ahead to add one — or three — to your arsenal. Because once you do, the only thing you'll be wondering is why it took you so long.
