Let's face it, Halloween is an exciting time of year, but it's certainly not the warmest. With fall in full swing and November on the horizon, you might be interested in investing in Halloween costumes with boots, so you can stay toasty and terrifying. Don't fret, there are as many Halloween costumes with boots as there are gravestones in a cemetery, so you're bound to find something to suit your unique taste.
Unless you're attending an indoor Halloween party this year, chances are, you may need to brave the elements in your costume, which might not be the most pleasant of experiences; especially considering many Halloween costumes tend to err on the skimpy side. It's not just the chilly evening air you'll have to endure, but depending on where you live, there could be ghastly weather too. Trudging through puddles and muddy leaves in unsuitable footwear is no fun at the best of times, but when you add in a Halloween costume with a long skirt, trailing accessories, or draping sleeves, the experience goes from bad to worse – even more so if you made your costume from scratch.
No matter if you're trick-or-treating or bar hopping, base your Halloween costume around an epic pair of boots to ensure you stay warm, protected from the elements, and eerily on point. Here are a few pairs to inspire your costume this Halloween.
