Once this heatwave simmers down, Angelenos will finally get to embrace fall fashion when the season kicks off next week. In the meantime, start prepping your fall wardrobe by checking off the first essential on our seasonal shopping list: boots.
Brave the heat and schedule a shopping trip to one (or all) of the 11 boot-filled LA spots we've mapped out for your convenience. Must-hit shops include Downtown LA's Acne Studios stocked with cult-cool stunners, The Fisher Project boasting the perfect chunky heeled booties and Anine Bing's dreamy West 3rd Street store, which carries the designer's awesome selection of blogger-approved boots. Check our map for more boot-happy shops to help you in your hunt for the perfect pair.
