17 Fall Ankle Boots That Keep Things Interesting

Not your average Chelsea boot

In case you missed it, fall is here. This means one thing, and one thing only: It’s now prime ankle boot season.

As everybody runs to the nearest shoe store (err, website) to snag their favorite style—whether that be a Chelsea boot, a lace-up boot, or a block heel—why not treat yourself to something that’ll stand out amongst the sea of basic black, brown, and tan?

We rounded up 17 killer fall ankle boots that were made for the spotlight. From hot pink pull-ons to pearl-, patch-, and flame-embellished options, there’s a little something for everyone to show their wild side.

So go ahead, spend the season cozied up in your oversized sweaters and jeans—and let your boots do all the talking.
