The Born Ronnie Boot will have you smartly decked out in a rough girlie style. The all suede upper shouts “woodsy” with the row of d-rings to lace up the front and smooth leather collar with back pull tab on the 5 inch shaft. But the fit is close to show off that feminine ankle line. The 3 inch heel adds height and elongates the leg, but its burly profile says “outdoorsy” all the way. Leather lining and front to back foot padding inside give comfort with each step and the heavily textured rubber outsole means stability on any expedition. Available in Grey for about $175 retail.

Born Bellatrix Boot:
If you dream of piloting your own little prop from coast to coast you will love the Born Bellatrix Boot. That aviator flair of rich Dark Brown leather constructs the upper with a shearling lining that peeks out around the tongue and top of the 6 inch shaft. A single pull tab at the back assists with the pull on and full lace up front on d-ring eyelets provide a custom fit. The Leawood-wrapped 2.5 inch heel and outsole have a rubber lugged finish for excellent traction. There is a steel shank for lateral stability and arch support yet a lot of flexibility for easy walking. The retail cost is around $200.
Lucky Brand Joss Boot:
If you are inspired by the rugged hiker look but want to tame it down a bit, here is the Lucky Brand Joss Boot. Strong hiking boot lines show in the cut and top stitching of the all leather upper with padded collar at the top of the almost 6 inch shaft. However, the fit is close around the foot and ankle for a more chic profile. A full d-ring lace system up the front cinches a personal fit and a full side zipper makes for easy access each time. An over 3 inch heel has a stacked-look and outsole has stars and bars lugging for a secure grip. This beauty comes in Black, Rich Green or Sequoia colors for roughly $159 retail.
Frye Lucy Lace Up Boot:
Go vintage in the Frye Lucy Lace Up Boot. The luscious, soft pebbled, full grain leather used to construct the foot and 7 inch shaft has been burnished at the toe, heel and at spots along the shaft for a broken-in appearance. The eyelet and speed hook lacing up the front assures a close, custom fit up the ankle with a single pull tab adorning the back. It’s an all-class look on a 3.5 inch heel with a slight.5 inch platform. The leather outsole and heel have a lug tread for easy strolling on slick surfaces. Get a pair in Black, Chocolate or Tan for a retail price of approximately $288.
