Boot season is officially upon us, and fashion designers were not afraid to get inventive with their footwear creations on the Fall 2017 runways. This season's offerings featured sculptural details, luxurious embellishments, and novelty elements. In short, these boots aren't only made for walking; they're made to make huge style statements, too!

From dazzling sequin boots to streetwear-favorite sock boots, these are the 5 boot trends you need to know about for fall:

1. Sock Boots

Sock boots are the style du jour. From Balenciaga to Fendi, designers were all about a sleek and slim style for fall. We love a sock boot in a bright pop of color or shimmering glitter.

2. Sparkle & Shine

Make a statement with glittering, sparkling shoes. After Saint Laurent wowed with a pair of dreamy crystal embellished boots, footwear designers are all about a little sparkle & shine for fall.

3. Slouchy

The slouchy boot shape is perfect for the girl who loves a classic boot silhouette but wants to mix it up just a tad. The slouchy shape works best when paired with skinny jeans or tights, making it the perfect option for fall outfits.

4. Novelty Heels

Give people something to look at with fun novelty heels! From pearl embellishments to see-through lucite, these boots are just too fun.

5. Combat Boots

Military chic has made its way back around into this season's trends, and what better way to embrace it than by sporting some commanding combat boots!
