It may seem too early to think about, but in the Fashion world designers are always seasons ahead: GQ reports boot trends for Fall 2010. We saw a little taste of the "combat boot" during Fall/Winter 2009 but come Fall 2010 rugged boots will be everywhere.

I really took a liking to rugged lace up boots when I saw the Harrys of London 'Combat Boots' on Gilt Man earlier this month. Not only do they keep your feet warm, but they give you plenty of versatility in the styling department (i.e GQ Boot Pics). There are a lot of fantastic boots on sale right now for those of you trend setters who want to be on point for fall:
BOSS Hugo Boss 'Armin II' on sale for $272 from $379 @ Zappos
These are my absolute favorite because they are simple and classic. The brown leather and black laces make them wearable with any outfit.
Converse by John Varvatos Men's Bosey Boot Shearling Hi on sale for $159 from $200 @ Piperlime
Not really sure how you feel about boots yet? These John Varvatos boots bridge the gap between sneakers and boots. Baby steps!
Common Projects 'Trag Boot' Low Profile Dirty on sale for $472 from $331 @ Forward
Common Projects can't really do wrong in the shoe department. The color is unique and I am really fascinated by the zipper and button detail. LOVE THEM!

These Rankin Boots are pleasing to the eye and the wallet. They look very durable too!
