Although sneakers are the 21st-century man’s go-to shoe, there's still room for another breed of footwear, especially in cooler climes. We’re talking about boots – Chelsea boots, specifically.

The ankle-high classic, with Victorian roots and made famous by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, should be on your cop list. Modern-day fashion icons, such as David Beckham and Kanye West, have embraced the hard-heeled boot, which is versatile enough to even be styled with a punk aesthetic. Whether it’s suede or leather, black or brown, this boot is perfect for fall and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.  It's more an of essential item than anything, and one that can sharpen your look.
