Best Bet: Army Brat


Combat boots are everywhere this season, and while we love our heels, we're glad that flats are here to stay. Marais USA, founded in New York this past year, just released their latest styles, and the Army Boot is our top pick. In stark black or crisp white, the ankle-length boots tie up the front with cool black laces. The bright-red fleece lining provides extra warmth, and the thick rubber sole makes them as comfy as sneakers. A slight wedge adds just the right amount of extra height, ensuring that these shoes look great with both jeans and miniskirts. We can't wait to wear these army boots all winter!
