Best Bet: Get the Boot


There's rarely a Pierre Hardy shoe we don't want, and these suede ankle boots are no exception. The beloved French footwear designer debuts his fourth collaboration with the Gap on October 19 and the result is chic, wearable fall boots with ample style. This beige, ankle-length pair comes in soft, buttery suede, with a buckled strap that wraps up and around the lower calf. The simple, neutral style features a thick heel and platform that add height without sacrificing comfort, making them perfect for everyday. Hardy's craftsmanship and design sensibility meld expertly with Gap's classic style (and lower price points!) to create this season's perfect daytime boot.
