One of the best things about Fall fashion is boots. This year we are seeing some great boots in notable styles. Sock boots are still going strong as are western inspired and slouch boots. One of the other main boot themes filling designer departments are utility boots.

Many women find utility boots to be one of the more challenging shoe trends. Some are heavy and do not come across as the most feminine fashion choice.

The upside is that utility boots are cool, comfortable and easy to wear. There are many great options worth exploring. I selected four of my favorite versions that will be great to pair with your favorite dresses and skinny jeans.

BALMAIN | Every detail about this boot from the slick chain to the shearling lining is perfection.
