Boots are a fashion staple for both women and men throughout the fall and winter. And they’re undeniably one of the most practical cold-weather footwear options. Here at Vionic, we’re big fans of boots for the chilly season, and we think women look their best when they feel their best. Needless to say, comfort is just as important as appearance when shopping for the perfect boot.
So, what are the most comfortable and stylish boots for women? We’ve rounded up the top eight styles. Check out our favorite booties for women below.
Western Ankle Boots
Traditional cowboy boots usually go up to about the mid-calf. We love this classic rugged style, but if you don’t want to go full cowgirl, a pair of western ankle boots are an excellent choice. When you browse women’s boots from Vionic, you’ll find cowboy boot western-style designs with sturdy kid suede, deconstructed nubuck, or drum-dyed leather uppers and a slightly angled stacked heel.Traditional cowboy boots usually go up to about the mid-calf.

Rising up to ankle height with subtle details like tassels and seam piping, these low-cut leather boots are perfectly western but not too over the top. They have side zippers and pull tabs on the back, making them easy to get on and off. If you need a weather-resistant option, our waterproof leather is treated with a protective finish and stitched with Seam-Sealed Technology to keep moisture out of your stylish western boot!
Almond-Toe Heeled Booties
When it comes to a cute women’s boot option, we love almond-toe heeled booties. With a smart silhouette and a modest heel, this style can be dressed up or down. The almond-toe ankle boots from Vionic have high-quality suede, buttery nubuck, or traditional leather uppers. And many are treated with a protective weather-resistant coating to protect the material from inclement weather.
Some of our styles come up to about ankle height, while others go slightly higher with a shaft height of 5 or more inches. As for the heel, heights range from 1.5 to 2.5 inches. Vionic’s almond-toe booties also have sturdy rubber outsoles, removable microfiber-wrapped footbeds, and zippers, making them easy to take on and off.
Riding Ankle Boots
If you’re in the market for stylish boots for women, you might consider a pair of riding booties. Inspired by equestrian-style footwear, a riding boot is elegant and practical. They go with jeans, pants, dresses, skirts and can be worn for professional or casual occasions.
You can count Vionic’s understated riding booties to make you look and feel great, season after season. Our sophisticated and stylish boot options have a low heel and a boot shaft of about 5 inches. Choose from water-resistant shoes for women in suede, pewter, dark brown, or black leather uppers with durable rubber outsoles in a complementing color. Like most shoes from Vionic, our women’s ankle boots have removable EVA footbeds, which you can replace with the orthotics of your choice.
Low-Heel Ankle Boots
What are the most comfortable and cute boots for women? Your best bet might be a pair of low-heel ankle boots. As the name implies, this style goes up to your ankle (or just below) and features a modest heel, usually around 1.5 inches or lower. This is a great in-office work boot option.
Vionic carries many low-heel booties with sleek neutral leather uppers. We also offer eye-catching animal prints, like leopard and snakeskin, in a range of colors. With weather-resistant uppers and reliable rubber outsoles, our waterproof shoes for women will keep you covered from fall through spring. This versatile shoe style is a must-have in any closet.

If you need a boost, you might consider a pair of block-heel booties. Unlike stilettos and other types of narrow heels, block heels offer stability and balance. Check out the block-heel boots from Vionic. You’ll find a variety of elevated styles with heels ranging from 3 to 3.5 inches and boot shafts reaching as high as 6.5 inches.
If you need a dressier style that can hold up in wet weather, you don’t have to settle for a traditional rubber rain boot. Scope out the water-resistant styles from Vionic. From weather-treated suede with breathable sock shafts to embossed crocodile-print in timeless black, brown, or metallic bronze leather, we have it all. Plus, our fall and winter boot designs have side zippers along the inside, so they’re easy to get on and off. As always, you know you’ll get a secure fit and orthotic arch support with every pair.
For something a little more subtle, how about a pair of chukka booties? This ankle-high style has a relatively flat heel with either a lace-up or slip-on design. The women’s chukka booties from our collection have full-grain leather uppers in versatile hues, like navy, brown, tan, and black.
Side sippers and pull tabs make it easy to slip these sporty ankle booties on and off. The microfiber-covered EVA footbeds are engineered for support, but you can remove them and insert the orthotics of your choice. With durable rubber outsoles and a heel height of about 1.25 inches, these laid-back flat boots are practical, comfy, and totally stylish.
If your vibe is sporty casual, a pair of sneaker booties might be right up your alley. Like traditional sneakers, this comfortable boot option goes up to about ankle height. They’re reminiscent of high-top trainers, but with leather uppers and more boot-like outsoles.
The lace-up booties from Vionic have soft nappa or nubuck leather uppers, and they come in some of the most fashionable colors for women. We’re talking rich brown, warm wheat, pewter, onyx, and slate grey with matching shoelaces. But don’t worry—the laces won’t hold you back. Our sneaker booties have discreet zippers on the inner ankles, so they’re easy to take on and off. Similar to our chukka booties, this comfortable ankle boot style comes with a heel height of roughly 1.25 inches.
Combat boots were a wardrobe staple for many women in the 90s, and we’re pleased to say they’re back. The traditionally military footwear style was once worn by soldiers, but it’s evolved through the decades. Now, combat boot options like those offered from Vionic are not quite as heavy-duty but still just as sturdy. We wouldn’t recommend treating them like a hiking boot, though!
Vionic’s combat boots for women offer ankle stability, great traction, and overall protection from the elements. With patent leather uppers in black, olive, or navy, they’re the perfect combination of eye-catching and casual. Our lace-up combats have a shaft height of 6.5 inches and a modest heel of just over an inch. They have dependable rubber outsoles with patterned tread and EVA footbeds for unbeatable support and grip.
