Black boots offer unbeatable versatility, so it only makes sense that you have at least one pair in your rotation. In addition to matching any color scheme or pattern in your outfit, many black boot silhouettes can be worn year-round. For instance, knee-high boots add a sophisticated touch to jeans and sweater combos in the colder months, but can also add a svelte look to bare legs and a floral mini dress when it’s warmer out. And if you’re looking to add a little edge to your ensemble, it’s hard to go wrong with chunky combat boots paired with either look.
Ahead, we rounded up 25 cute and comfortable black boots for women to fit every budget. We even included styles you can wear in cold, wet weather, so there are options here fit for every climate and occasion.
