Knee-high boots are a sure-fire way to add instant personality to your look. Even a basic jeans and tee combo looks so much cooler when you finish off the look with pair of knee-high boots on top. They’re also incredibly versatile because they really do go so well with just about any outfit—leggings, skinny jeans, dresses, skirts—you name it.

Given how popular knee-high boots are when colder weather hits, there are a lot of options to choose from out there—especially since these longline boots are officially the biggest fall footwear trend of the year. From riding boots, western-inspired cowboy books, and retro heeled styles that look straight out of the 1970s, there's certainly no shortage of chic knee-high boots to pick from.

Frankly, with all the stylish options available to buy this season, it's almost overwhelming to narrow down the best pair of knee-high boots for you and your unique sartorial tastes. Heck, there are even tons of over-the-knee boot options on offer at the moment too.

Fortunately, that's where we come in. Instead of spending hours upon hours scanning the entire internet for your next favorite footwear find, check out these picks we've curated below. There’s guaranteed to be a pair—or two—in the mix that’s just right for you.
