While you could make an excuse that you need to shop all the under-$150 boots on sale because winter hasn't really started yet, and 2019 is right around the corner, and you need new boots for the new year — but really, you don't need any of those reasons; boots have become an all-year shoe. Of course, style them with everything in the fall and winter, but don't pack them away once spring arrives. Wearing Dr. Martens with floral dresses and maxi skirts has become the fashion girl's equivalent of blue jeans and a T-shirt (though you can always wear that outfit with a pair of black leather booties, too).
So no, absolutely no one could blame you for jumping on the post-holiday boot sales. Though there are plenty on the Internet to peruse at the moment, five you need to browse are the sales at & Other Stories, Cole Haan, Madewell, Net-A-Porter, and Shopbop; each store has boots for under $150, including fall 2018 styles you probably were eyeing not too long ago.
Get your designer fix during Net-A-Porter and Shopbop's sales. The end-of-season Shopbop sale includes some of Instagram's favorite designers like Dr. Martens and Jeffrey Campbell, while the Net-A-Porter winter sale covers the classics like Sam Edelman and Stuart Weitzman.
For the most part, discounts are already on each website and no promo codes are necessary. The only two that require you to put in a code at checkout are Madewell and Cole Haan; though both stores' discount codes reveal an extra 40 percent off for sale section styles, so having one more step is well worth it.
Below, the five boot sales to shop before any other, with three styles from each store included.
