More than half the country woke up to sweater weather this morning, which means only one thing in the minds of the fashion conscious: The boots are coming. They're finally coming. Trends this year are as varied as cutouts to white booties to white booties with cutouts. Also favored are metallic embellishments, pony hair, neoprene uppers, gargantuan lug soles, and any pattern that someone in the '60s predicted we'd be wearing today. In space.

Below, we've divided the best 28 brands and retailers that you can order online by price. And above, browse our top picks from each shoe source and price bracket. The list starts with under $100 finds all the way up to seriously-why-are-you-reading-this-when-you-could-go-buy-a-tropical-island-where-boots-are-never-necessary options. Happy shopping and may the fall weather footwear gods be with you.
