17 Pairs of Spring Boots You’ll Love Wearing More Than Sandals

Spring is inching closer and closer and you’re probably already stocking up on the seasonal staples. Like statement tees, midi skirts and long shorts. But before you go ahead and add those brand new sandals to your virtual shopping cart, be they thongs, super strappy or square toe, we’re asking you to consider swapping a few pairs for spring boots.

What exactly makes a boot spring-worthy? It usually comes down to color. The ever-popular white boots are great transitional options, but bright shades of blue and green plus pastel takes are also on the menu. And yes, florals work, too. It’s also a great time to experiment with artsy heels — just make sure you can walk while wearing them.

Ankle boots are the preferred silhouette when it comes to spring boots since they hit at the perfect height for all those cropped jeans you’re bound to be wearing. But don’t forget about their taller cousins, especially the knee-high variety. They go great with midi skirts and even miniskirts when the temps don’t quite meet our warmer weather expectations.

We’re also big fans of texture this time of year. Croc patterns are an easy way to go wild this spring. And don’t forget about combat boots. Just make sure you favor more spring-minded versions boasting cool details like a little sheen or transparent soles.
