Black Friday may be over but that doesn’t mean that the sales have stopped. If anything, it feels like the sales have only gotten better. The discounts have grown larger, the prices have gone down, and that means that I have spent even more time browsing the thousands of products than normal. My one and only finding? Some of the best boots are on sale right now, no matter your preferred boot type or style.
There’s no denying that it’s boot season right now. The temperatures are cooling down, the layers are coming out, and your toes need to be protected against the elements. I feel like I’ve already been reaching for my rain boots more this season than ever before, which is making me nervous about the onset of snowier weather (and my impending need for some cute snow boots to get me to and from work). My usual combat boots are not going to cut it anymore, and I would rather pick a new pair up than risk ruining my favorite black boots in a puddle or on a sheet of hidden black ice.
But, because I’m something of a boots connoisseur, I’m never going to turn down a pair of chic knee-high boots that are cuter than they are practical for impending bad weather. Life is about balance, and I intend to reflect that in my collection for the season ahead and in years to come. Boots, no matter the style or purpose, are a forever purchase. Why not make a purchase as important as this during the best time of year to snag your favorite pair for less? I may be a shopping editor, but that sounds like a better idea to me than paying full price.
Keep scrolling to shop all of my hand-selected pairs of on-sale boots right now. My picks span categories and brands (GannI! Loeffler Randall! UGG!) and some are even adored by members of team Marie Claire. Happy shopping!
