    Fall/Winter boots?

    I've been looking for a nice in-between fall boot for when the weather gets a bit cooler. I'd love something that's brown leather, and somewhere between a dress boot and work boot. 6" and cap toes are always appreciated.

    Some current options:

    Kenneth Cole NY Game Place:

    Cole Haan Blythe Cap Toe:

    Red Wing Vintage, Iron Ranger:

    Vintage Shoe Company Frederic Chukkah:

    With the exception of the Red Wing, I'm not particularly in love with any specific one. Does anyone have any thoughts?


    I have those red wings. Hands down the best shoe I've ever owned. I dress them up and down all fall/winter. They wear in wonderfully,

      The Red Wings are mad hot compared to the other ones. I'll see what else I can find for you.



        This might be something you would like. You could wait for a site wide or promo sale and get them for probably under $200.



          If you like western style you could also check out 'Ariat' or 'TwistedX' boots. Both companies make quality products & even offer some composite & steel toe options for serious work boots.



            Frye Arkansas boots? They did dip down to $120 a few months ago. I ordered a pair in the cognac color, but it was WAY too orange for me. Very hunting lodge. If they dip down again I'll probably get the brown.




              Where do you live, and what is your weather like? For fall, I alternate between a pair of Doc Martens and some Born Chelsea boots. In the winter, I alternate between the Docs and a Pair of LL Bean hunting boots, but I live in the upper midwest where it is cold and snowy for 4 months.



                I will have to go with the Cole Haan Blythe Cap Toe. May not be appropriate for the ho-hum of snow, but the shoe could hold its own at any event/place- work, happy hour, church, walk in the park, a date, whatever.




                  Worst weather they might handle is a bit of rain, maybe a bit of snow when traveling to colder climates. So no, they don't actually need to be all-weather boots.


                  I really like those Frye Arkansas boots in the Redwood color. It's a nice combination of dressy and casual influences. I'll definitely keep an eye out for a sale or coupon.

                  Keep 'em coming, great discussion so far.



                    I just got the Cole Haan cap toe Chelsea and I love them. Kind of the same deal as Heafcliff in that they wouldn't be great for serious weather but for a nice dress boot they are the tops!



                      Land's End Canvas has great lace up boots. I just got them the other day and they look almost identical to the Wolverine 1,000 Mile boots. Although they aren't as soft as the wolverines, it's half the price and just as nice.




                        someone actually asked the same question the other day on my blog;




                          I'm going to get a pair of these:
