Shopping for your go-to fall boot isn't always easy. You have your trendier styles (but they may not go with everything) and then you have your limited walking required boots (you have the blisters to remember which ones those are), but there's nothing quite like finding an old faithful. You know — the boot you reach for first when it is going to be a long day, the one that goes with you on every weekend trip, and the style that works with just about any outfit. This season, Everlane's new Day Boot may be just that.
The brand, known for providing wardrobe staples like affordable cashmere sweaters, classic tees, and denim, has come out with a minimal new pair of boots that are made for, well, walking. The Day Boot, the latest member of Everlane’s Day shoe collection, rings in at an attainable price point of $225. Handcrafted in Italian leather at a small, family-owned factory in Val d’Arno, Italy, the boot provides quality without the designer price tag.
The Day Boot was created so that you don't have to sacrifice fashion for function. The shoe provides a little added height with a walkable two inch stacked heel, and adds a cushioned insole to provide the support for a day of walking. Made with super soft Italian leather, the boots are created to mold to your feet after some wear for a customized fit. There's also a back pull tab and inside zipper to ensure you're not stuck trying to yank them off your feet at the end of the day.
The Day Boot does not lack in style for what it has in comfort. Available in five shades including black, burgundy, ecru, brick, and bone, the simple design and neutral colors and make for a sleek, understated shoe. The boot also hits right at the ankle, so it's easy to pair with many different silhouettes and styles without distracting from your outfit.
Everlane definitely isn't new to the leather shoe game. Its well-loved Day Glove is another popular style with shoppers, with a 4.5 rating and over 1,100 reviews on its site. And much like the Day Boot is intended to be, it's applauded for its extreme comfort; many customers write that the Day Glove molds to their foot and fits perfectly with no painful break-in period at all. With such a devoted customer base, it wouldn't come as a shock if this new boot, which is basically the fall version of the brand's popular flat, becomes the next favorite style for the brand this season.
