Sadly, one fact rings true in Miami. Boots are not essential for fall. That being said, they also aren't frowned upon either. While it is completely appropriate to sport sandals through March, it doesn't mean you can't tie on a pair of this season's hottest knee-highs, or make a pair of low-heeled, suede and buckled booties be your go-to.

To simplify your search, we've rounded up ten stores that are on their boot game this season. It's chain-heavy, we're aware, however this season we feel the stores we chose have outdone themselves when it comes to boots, whether we're talking classic leather riding versions or high-heeled python beauties. Click through to browse through our map, arranged from north to south, and let us in on your favorites in the comments.

Fortunately, there's Aldo and its infinite supply of ankle boots, wedge boots, laced boots, and any other trendy version you could think of, most under $100. Bonus?
