Luckily, there are so many styles and types of boots out there to choose from. With options that range from comfortably casual to suit-and-tie formal, there's definitely a pair of boots out there that will fit perfectly into your look and lifestyle. Read on to find the perfect pair.

For the Casual Trendsetter: The UGG Men's Neumel Waterproof

UGG Men's Neumel Waterproof in Charcoal

The UGG Men's Neumel Waterproof in Charcoal. Also available in Grizzly.

With the rise of athleisure style and high-fashion sweatpants, relaxed looks are no longer sloppy. Tailored joggers, soft tees, and fitted sweatshirts are all the rage in men's street style. If you're a laid-back guy who loves style, hop on this trend with a pair of UGG Men's Neumel Waterproof boots. Elements of UGG's Classics line combine with chukka boot style for a modern update to both, and a bright pop of color on the laces is an eye-catching upgrade. Made of waterproof leather with a Treadlite by UGG™ sole, these boots are ready for whatever the weather may bring, while inside an UGGpure™ wool lining and foam insole might trick you into thinking you're wearing a slipper.

This boot might be too casual to wear to work, but it's perfect for the weekend! Lean into its super-relaxed feeling with a pair of joggers and a sweatshirt for running errands or bring the comfort to a slightly more polished combo of jeans and a sweater.

The UGG Men's Neumel Waterproof is $179.95*.

For the Vintage Fan: The Clarks Men's Desert Boot

The crepe sole of this boot is lightweight and durable, meant to withstand your daily wear. The rest of this boot is made of soft, unlined leather so your foot can breathe. A lace-up closure makes for an adjustable fit.

Clarks Desert Boots are perfect for casual Fridays: dressier than a sneaker but more casual than a dress shoe. They go perfectly with jeans, khakis, and corduroy. Add your favorite vintage plaid shirt with a tie and a sweater for a very cool look.
