We’d be willing to bet that if there’s one style of shoe you slip on from late-August through mid-April, it’s a pair of ankle boots. This makes sense:

,look as good with a dress as they do with jeans , and if you land on the right pair, are just about as comfortable as a pair of everyday walking shoes can get. But, like all wardrobe staples — whether it’s a white-button down or the perfectly vintage-inspired pair of blue jeans— there’s a vast sea of ankle boots to pick through before landing on the ideal pair. To get a lay of the land, we reached out to 13 cool and stylish women, from the coach of Downtown Girls Basketball League to the founder of a luxury sock company, to hear about their favorite-looking pairs that have also stood the test of, well, standing — and plenty of walking, whether through slush in the winter
or on long treks in the spring.
