With Fall comes the need for a pair (or two) of dependable boots. The Roccia Vet hiking boot by Diemme has been one of the Italian label’s most popular models. This season it’s available in a very clean cream nubuck colorway. While these may not be for the reckless among us, they pair well with the season’s trend of tonal fall colors like tan and grey.  Scoop these over at END for $455 USD.

Guidi Cordovan Cont Boots 

£873 via LN-CC

Guidi provides their take on the hiking boot, adding luxe horse leather on the upper and placing it on a Vibram sole. These shoes are carefully crafted and will break necks in person. The details include lightly rusted eyelets on the laces and a padded leather section at the back of the boot. Owning these boots will open up so many styling possibilities and I would recommend these as a great gateway drug into the Guidi brand.  At over £800 these boots are by no means cheap but they are worth any penny to a discerning menswear connoisseur.

Cash CA x Trickers Padded Top Derby Boot in Navy/Tan

A match that was destined to happen, the good folks at outerwear experts Cash CA collaborate with UK-based trickers to execute this beautiful Derby Boot. The Derby Boot really hit it’s stride in 2012 with everyone putting out their own iteration , in my eyes though this is one of the top models to come out all year. The tan really works against the navy suede and even the laces compliment the boot perfectly.

Ankle high pebbled leather boots with a side zip, ankle strap and cognac trim at the collar. The spark of color adds a luxe feel to this pair. These boots should last you years with proper care and can be work with anything from camel coats to leather riders. Snag these on heavy discount while you still can.

Undercover J6FO3 8-Hole Worker Boot 
$815USD via Haven

Jun Takahashi puts his touch on this Worker Boot adding a front zipper and tonal side navy suede panel to go with the black leather upper. A perfect shape to wear with jeans or cropped pants this boots are incognito enough to wear daily but have enough details to never be boring. Heavy duty metal hardware accents the militaristic lacing of this boot.
