Fall 2011/Winter 2012 Style Guide: Men’s Dress Boots

Versatility, comfort and style. When it comes to men’s footwear, boots are no longer solely reserved for the “Great Outdoors.” Men’s dress boots are huge season. Today’s styles encompass the classic tailored look of dress shoes combined with the durability of  a boot. The latest dress boots easily make the transition from work wear to “night on the town” style in a smart and sophisticated way. Whether you’re looking for a more traditional boot, a lace-up, pull-on or high shine style, you’ll have no problem finding a boot to fit your needs.

Here are some new styles I found that fit the fashion bill.
