Allyson Payer, Editor, Who What Wear
"There are so many white ankle boot options on the market now, but this pair is perfect and definitely worth the splurge. It's any wonder that they sold out earlier in the season, but Tibi responded to the demand and they're available for pre-order again."
Leah Cooper, Features Editor, Coveteur
"A few nights ago I was scrolling through fall fashion finds on my phone—as one does before bed—and made an audible gasp when I landed at these. I love floral; I love velvet; I love a chunky heel! Are they at all practical given that I live in NYC and either walk or take the subway everywhere? No. Do I want them anyway? Absolutely."
Sam Peters, Editorial Intern, SHEfinds
I've been dying to get my hands on the perfect pair of white booties this season, so when I found this option from Chinese Laundry, I couldn't have been more excited. I love the contrast the black slit and brown block heel create - they really make the stunning white finish stand out even more!
Justine Schwartz, Editorial Director, SHEfinds
"These La Canadienne booties are a work of art--but also totally practical. They have everything I wanted in a new pair of boots this season. Velvet? Check. Floral embroidery? Check. A commute-friendly 2.75" heel? Check. I'm in heaven with this pair. "
Rebecca Shinners, Social Media Manager, Allure
"I’m a sucker for anything holographic and often have to convince myself not to splurge on pieces that are too over-the-top. These booties are mostly black with a shiny heel, making them perfect for everyday wear."
Amy Lee, Fashion Editor, The Zoe Report
"White booties are probably my number one items on my wish list this fall. They're bold, cool and are surprisingly easy to wear with a lot of different outfits from printed midi dresses to a sweater and denim combo."
Sierra Horton, Social Media Editor, Bustle
"I normally avoid Chelsea booties because most tend to sit really low on the ankle and I feel like they make my legs look short (I avoid high-top Converse and Vans for this reason, too!). But, this pair from AllSaints looks like they sit above the ankle and are super elongating. Plus — who can go wrong with a classic black leather finish, the chunkiest of heels, and a pointy toe? So many good features!"
Rebecca Daly, Senior Fashion Editor, Real Simple
"I love the look of heeled ankle boot with a pointed toe (and have a serious collection of those!), but for the city streets in winter, you really can’t beat Frye’s engineer boots. The slim silhouette and polished leather make this style feel just feminine enough (without sacrificing the classic rugged appeal), and the nearly indestructible lug sole and leather construction make them a practical investment."
Zoey Washington, Senior Fashion Editor, Brit + Co
"While everyone is losing their minds over the latest sock boot trend, I'm switching gears and going for something with a little more durability this fall. For me, it doesn't get better than a sleek, yet functional, lug sole boot like the Schutz Talia Boot. It's the perfect balance of form and function without the worry of getting my heel stuck or getting caught in the rain."
