Go on. Give your strappy sandals one more spin around the block. Then set your sights to fall footwear, which is just as covetable. My pick for fall’s best boots? These beauties, which are more like heavy-metal jewelry for your feet, and who doesn’t want some of that?
These heavily buckled boots might look like a pain to strap into, but a handy zipper on the inner side lets you easily slip them on and off. They subtly reference Chloé’s celebrity-loved Susanna boots, only with leanings more rocker than Western. (Plus: More buckles! Less expensive!) They’re by luxe Italian brand Moma, and are just as hard-wearing as Frye boots, but way less ubiquitous. I’ll be stomping in them all fall.
The Details: Moma multi-buckle boots in black, $578 at Head Start Shoes, 126 South 17th Street.
