Hot-weather Boots you can wear in Summer

…even if it’s 100 degrees.

If you're like some of us, you're already verging on sartorial boredom from exclusively wearing sandals all summer. For those of you with a distinct hankering for winter boots, worry no more: We are saying it's cool and normal to wear boots in the summer! They just have to be done right: Shy away from chunky styles and go for a short ankle boot or bootie in lighter hues (black is just too heavy). Any styles that feature cut-outs will allow your feet to breathe more, so you can say sayonara to socks!
