Parisian Women Have Been Wearing This One Boot Colour for Decades

We know what you're thinking: When it comes to putting your fail-safe black boots to the side, how can you manage? And most importantly, why would you do that? Well, because brown is the key colour for autumn/winter 2018 (we've already put them to the test). Not only that, but French women love incorporating brown into their footwear—especially boots. Oh, and it's also the colour of some of our favourite things (aka brownies and chocolate), so it's only right we start adding it to our footwear collection too.

With so many pairs out there, it's difficult to know which ones will see us through the transitional (and basically arctic) winter months while still looking chic with all our outfits. This is where we come in. We've found 15 pairs so strong that your next big decision will be how much your credit card limit is.

From Chloé's over-the-knee riding boots and Saint Laurent's Western-inspired wonders to the ASOS lace-up booties you'll wear on repeat, you're guaranteed to find a pair that will suit you. It's not just shades of tan, brown and caramel either—look to A/W 18's key trends like leopard print and snakeskin to inspire your choice.

Now it's time to see and shop the designer bags that'll go with your new boots.
