Game face: On. Laptop: Charged. Credit card: At the ready. Amazon Prime's Early Access Sale has begun. The two-day shopping event grants Prime members exclusive access to thousands of deals, and as a self-identifying shopaholic, this is crunch time. Thousands of too-good-to-be-true deals I can cash in on with a just few simple clicks—Call me Simone Biles because this is my Olympics. In addition to stocking up on luxury appliances and doing some light holiday shopping, I'm most excited to shop the best boot deals of Amazon Prime's Early Access Sale because, boy, are they good.

First and foremost, I'm eyeing the assortment of heavily discounted ankle boots, ranging from a black suede pair that's destined to become my everyday shoe to a leopard-print bootie I cannot wait to wear to happy hour. I'm also looking forward to mastering gorpcore—a utilitarian fashion trend that references the age-old camping snack of "good old raisins and peanuts"—given the plethora of fashion hiking boots over 40 percent off. Those are deals so good that I, a notorious city girl whose idea of nature is watching pigeons eat trash, am considering organizing a camping trip upstate. (Did I say camping? I meant glamping.)

Ahead, peruse an edit of the best discounted boots on Amazon. Oh, and note that I'll be updating this story as the Prime Early Access Sale continues, so be sure to keep checking this space throughout the rest of the event.
