Start saying your sayonaras and see-you-laters to your favorite summer sandals because boot season is underway. Although this sizzling heatwave would have you believing otherwise, the official start of fall is fast-approaching. While here in LA we get treated to many sun-kissed days well into the season, boots are the cold-weather must-have that Angelenos can fully embrace—starting now.

Although it wouldn't be weather-appropriate to wear them with cozy coats and tons of layers just yet, fall's go-to steppers pair perfect with billowy sundresses and breezy separates as you slowly warm up your wardrobe. (Check out Planet Blue's latest lookbook for some seasonal styling tips.)

To help make the transition even smoother, we've mapped out 11 boot-happy shops. From chic combat boots at Mona Moore in Venice and wear-everyday booties at The Grove's Topshop to funky cowboy boots at Boot Star in WeHo and chic riding boots at Creatures of Comfort on Melrose—there's something for everyone.
