As we spiral head first towards the end of what seems like a very short summer, the sneakers we thought we’d wear on balmy nights have spent most of the last few months languishing in our closets. The global coronavirus pandemic may have halted our warm-weather footwear for getting the recognition it deserves, but that’s no reason to look ahead.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best leather boots on the market right now, including Rick Owens‘ take on the classic Chelsea boot and Moncler‘s rugged but luxe hiking boots. Having dominated the European runways at the Fall/Winter 2020 shows, they’ll see you through the end of summer into fall and beyond. And with any luck, they’ll get a bit more airtime thank your summer kicks.
