We love warm temperatures and gladiator sandals but have to admit that we’re definitely ready for the crisp air of autumn and closed toe shoes. It’s finally time to stash away the sandals and get ready to slip on the fall’s number 1 staple, the boot!

Here are our ‘best boots of fall’ featuring booties and boots. From the must-have stretch velvet to the staple lace-up boot and even Gucci’s amazingly exaggerated turquoise boot – plus everything in between:
