Finding The Perfect Socks To Wear With Your Boots

Boot season is fast approaching. It's that time of year when every woman pulls her babies (aka her boot collection) out of the back of the closet and sifting through her drawers in search of the best socks for boots to make her feet comfortable and her outfit pop.

I'm assuming you already know how to find hiking socks. So if you came here in search of moisture-wicking wear for your mountain climbing shoes—I do apologize for the bait and switch. But if you're here for darling socks to wear in every (other) possible boot scenario—then you're in the right place. Whether you're wearing classic ankle boots, lace up combat boots, cowgirl kickers, quirky boots, sleek zip ups, pull-on harness boots, or sexy cut-out booties like Kendall Jenner, I've got the socks for you.

Read on to ramp up for boot season with socks geared towards so many scenarios in the modern girl's life. Personally, I have socks for friend encounters, learning institutions, romantic escapades, the right socks for climbing the career ladder...even socks to buy more socks in!

Each category below offers a low sock and high sock option to suit your fashionable lifestyle. Honestly, consider yourself covered.
