You have probably noticed all the various low boots; they're very useful and wearable, because they're meant for everyday footwear, but that doesn't mean that that's all there is to them.
Leather models are the best and will last the longest, but I have to give you fair warning, they will only stay trendy until springtime and then other trends will take over.
Some love them, some don't. Boots are a very specific fashion accessory: you either love them completely, or you simply are not a fan. And then there are also women who stay undecided, I fall into this category myself.
There is no rule stating that you can only wear high top sneakers to the grocery store or a walk in the woods; you can even opt to wear them with a dress (long and short), cropped pants, elegant suits and, of course, jeans.
