Clarks England Sienna We're not seeing that many cowboy boots this fall, as women's turn to more feminine and versatile styles. If you still haven't quite said goodbye to that inner cowgirl of yours, try these toned down western-style boots by Clarks England. They're not quite so over-the-top as a traditional cowboy boot and are therefore more versatile for the fall. Features include soft, smooth leather uppers, braided leather details, soft leather lining and a tapered heel. The leather-wrapped EVA footbed provides excellent comfort, while the steel shank adds stability and eases walking motion. Lightweight TPR outsole reduces shock, is durable and flexes easily. Available in Mudslide (shown) or Black in sizes 5.5-12. Carlos by Carlos Santana Justice Talk about fashion being fierce! The Justice by Carlos Santana is a pull-on boot that is nothing short of pure attitude, from its mixed reptilian-print leather and stretch fabric upper, to its sleek silhouette and sexy stiletto heel. Available in Black Fabric/Leather (shown) or Dark Brown Fabric/Leather in sizes 5-10.

Sofft Modena II With wedge heels transitioning into fall, you'll notice a lot of boots with them. This stylish wedge boot by Sofft is a tailored dress boot with an elegant, suede wrapped heel, full leather lining and the signature Sofft outsole that matches the color of the upper. From its spacious toe box and leather ties up the leg to its luxurious Amalfi suede upper, the Modena II is definitely a boot worth wearing. Available in Black Suede, Ebano Suede or Earth Suede (shown) in sizes 5-12.

Luichiny Paisley Luxe is back this fall, meaning rich colors, bold prints and heavy fabrics. Put all of those together and add a dollop of flare and you've got this fabulous Luichiny tapestry boot. It features a classic stiletto-heeled silhouette, a narrow tow box (the most flattering cut if you want to elongate your legs), and a beautiful paisley-tapestry combo upper that is available in two color combinations. Perfect with your favorite skirt or jeans. Available in Brown Paisley Tapestry (shown) or Red Paisley Tapestry in sizes 7-10. Rockport Shrewsbury Another wedge-heeled boot by the godfather of classic style, Rockport. On the Shrewsbury, sole innovation provides an extra deep heel cushion and a very flexible Sachetto construction in the forefoot for long-term walking comfort. Polyurethane footbed provides durable cushioning to help prevent foot fatigue. Rubber outsole provides durable traction. Full Grain Leather and kid suede are soft and pliable providing quality and style. Available in Black Calf (shown) or Java Calf in sizes 5.5-11.

Bolo Siene With luxe back in the picture, expect to see the return of anything and everything animal-related. That means lots of fur (real or faux, although I'd recommend the latter) and animal prints. The Siene is a knee high boot from Bolo's Paris Tailored Collection that features a wildcat print with unique contrast stitching through out the whole boot, a full lace-up front, a trendy round toe and a stacked heel for style. This boot is perfect for the woman who likes to make a statement. Available in the Animal Print (shown) in sizes 6-11.

Stuart Weitzman Awesome This is a more subtle adaptation of the animal print trend from shoe guru Stuart Weitzman.
