The 14 Best Ankle Boots for Women in 2022

Marie Claire US 9/9/2022 Gabrielle Ulubay

As the weather begins to cool down this time of year, I begin digging my all-time favorite accessories out of hiding: Boots. The best boots are fashionable, versatile, and can be paired with just about any outfit, from a denim outfit to a slinky slip dress—but of all the types of boots out there, ankle boots often reign supreme. Fashion stylist Sarah Nearis agrees, calling ankle boots her "personal favorite"; she describes them as "ankle boots or bootie that cover the whole foot and reach up to or a little past the ankle." Because of their height, ankle boots are also great in the early fall, when temperatures are just beginning to drop, but don't quite warrant snow boots. 

"As sad as I am to admit fall is right around the corner, I love the fashion that comes with it and the weather that allows for more boots," Nearis says, advocating particularly for ankle boots because of their ability to remain a steadfast everyday shoe, noting, "Ankle boots are so versatile depending on the style and design. There are so many ways to style them." 

Below, we've gathered some of our all-time favorite ankle boots for fall and winter, so that when you invest in your new favorite style, you know you're getting the very best.
