10 Luxury and affordable boots to stomp in this monsoon season

While the rest of the world is midway through autumn and winter waiting ahead, we in the tropics are up against a much less aesthetically pleasing climate that will take over our cities with heavy rain showers until next year. Though, whichever part of the world you’re currently in, the year-end season’s arrival only means one thing: it’s time to strut in your best pair of boots—that you wouldn’t mind getting wet, of course. While an umbrella will be your daily companion for the monsoon season, on extra stormy days, it’s probably better off as a walking stick rather than for protection, so being prepared from head-to-toe, even while the sun is out, would be the smart move.

Rest assured, you won’t have to compromise looking your absolute best, even in this climate. Here, we’ve rounded up 10 stylish designer and affordable boots to stomp through the monsoon season with, in comfort and style.
