24 Best Black Boots for Women That are Worth Investing in for Fall 2020

Hits: 11

When mulling over a purchase, a nagging thought often crosses your mind: Will I actually wear this? For a resounding “yes” to that question, you can’t go wrong with a pair of excellent black boots. We’re always looking for that one item we’ll wear again and again—something that’s both useful and special, works with everything we already have, and feels appropriate for any occasion. So when it comes to footwear this fall, investing in a boot that’s made to last is your best bet.

The right pair can be styled with jeans or a dress, for day or night, and is simple and anonymous enough that you’re never worried about “repeating”; you could wear the same boots every day without thinking twice. Which is all the more reason to invest in a really, really good pair that’s both exciting and durable enough to withstand your daily life. That’s why we’re turning our attention to the luxe, no-nonsense black boots from the Fall 2020 runways. We’re imagining knee-high boots in variety of heel heights, like a sleek tall boot from Celine or Victoria Beckham, as well as flat, pull-on riding boots from Jil Sander and Gabriela Hearst to wear under our favorite fall dresses, and Bottega Veneta’s western-inspired ankle boots with our favorite vintage jeans. When rain and snow hit, Prada’s hefty and chunky utility boots or Alexander McQueen’s hiking boot will easily stand up to the elements. For something flat and walkable, try a simple ankle bootie from Marni or Dries Van Noten instead of a classic Chelsea boot this season. And if you’re looking for something non-leather, you won’t do better than Stella McCartney’s thick-soled treaded platform faux-leather boots.

Shop these and all of the season’s most investment-worthy designer black boots for women, below.
