When fall rolls in, you should be instinctively gearing up for a wardrobe makeover. The weather starts to get more and more unpredictable from here on out and you don’t want to be caught unprepared, sporting your mesh shorts, a Cuban collar shirt, and canvas sneakers in a full-on downpour. Where better to start the transformation than the kicks? A good pair of zip-up boots will see you through unforeseen meteorological disasters.

With the help of SSENSE, we’ve rounded up 10 pairs of the best zip-up boots for men this season. From bold luxury by Raf Simons in the form of his futuristic Solaris-21 Boots in metallic silver through to big, puddle-stomping goodness from Virón in the punk-leaning 1992 Boots, there’s a style for all occasions and wardrobes.
