The extended summer so many of us seem to be experiencing may be keeping our sneakers, boat shoes, and loafers in rotation just a little longer than we expected. But soon enough, boot weather (wind, rain, sleet, and even snow) will be here to push them all the the back of our closets. With that in mind, we rounded up the pairs we can’t wait to wear this season — from a new take on the classic Timberland to a tough, handmade pair of hiking boots from the relatively young brand Feit. Take a look at the best fall boots a guy could ask for below.

Timberland Men's 6-Inch Premium Waterproof Boots
It's hard to talk about boots without mentioning Timberland, but instead of the brand's signature yellow hue, reach for one of its other great colors, like this gray, to change it up a bit.
These boots are so good that we've actually recommended them before. Their durable oiled leather can withstand even the worst fall weather, and because they're handmade in the USA, they'll only get better with age.
Reasonably priced and built to last, these boots resist water, dirt, oil, and all the other things you know you're going to throw toward your feet this season. Which might make them the hardest working pair of boots you'll ever own.
Based on a pattern originally cut in 1914, this boot in an attractive suede is the cornerstone of Wolverine's made-in-America offering — and can easily become the cornerstone of your fall boot rotation.
R.M. Williams Classic Craftsman Dark Tan Yearling Boot
The boot specialists at R.M. Williams are making the kinds of boots that will last a lifetime; not just because they're really well made, but also because they'll resole them any time the bottoms of these Australian-made shoes wear out.
Feit, which is pronounced like the word fight, makes all of its boots and shoes by hand from natural leathers. Which means you could wear this pair of boots without socks (not that you would) without worrying about any unpleasant smells getting trapped inside.
If money is no object, this is the pair of boots you want this winter: they reference the button boots of the Victorian age, but their sleek styling means they can slip under your skinniest jeans (or the wool trousers you wear to the office) without a hitch.
