Fall boots for men and women that can take on the rain and dance all night.
On rainy days, sunny days and days that go all night, autumn is all about boots. Here are a few pairs that will help you step up your fall fashion game.
Danner Mountain 600 Chelsea Boots ($170 at Danner, Renton, and danner.com). This new lace-free, pull-on design out of Portland offers the function of a work shoe with serious style and comfort. Smooth, full-grain leather, a flexible Ariaprene collar, a cushiony Vibram SPE midsole and a grippy outsole create a trendy yet timeless choice for everyday wear, in fall-friendly colors like saddle tan and olive.
Filson x White’s Dri-Foot Sierra Boots ($545 at Filson, Sodo, and filson.com). These 10-inch-tall, heavy-duty, full-grain leather boots are made by local heritage brand Filson and White’s Boots specifically for hunting and working in inclement weather (but will do just fine at work as well). Handsome and rugged, they feature water-resistant leather uppers and a waterproof, breathable membrane lining to keep feet dry through water, mud and snow. Vibram outsoles keep a firm grip on slippery terrain so you don’t lose your footing.

Chie Mihara Ishy Boots ($442 at Clementines, Pioneer Square, and clementines.com). Got rain boots covered? Go for just-plain-gorgeous in these fashion-forward booties with a colorful parrot print and chunky, 3-inch metallic-gold heel. Designed in Spain using leather and cotton, they make any basic-black outfit effortlessly chic.
Fluevog Living 2.0 Thatcher Boot with Faux Laces ($435 at Fluevog, downtown, and fluevog.com).
