At the heart of every closet, there's a trusty boot that anchors your 9-to-5 wardrobe. Aside from shielding your toes from the frigid air outside, it goes with virtually every piece of business attire, as well as your weekend wares — whether you're a stiletto power-walker or more of a desk-side comfort-seeker.
Now that we're really starting to feel the chill, it's time to upgrade your go-to work shoe. And, we've found something for everyone: If you're looking to take your work wardrobe to new heights, consider a sky-high knee-high style from Zara. Or, if you simply want to make your cubicle a tad homier, there's a shearling-lined 3.1 Phillip Lim pair that'll contend with your favorite stay-at-home slippers. Now, consider this an investment in your career and your closet, all in one fell swoop.
