Every winter brings with it the promise of slushy commutes, endless chili recipes and, of course, a new reigning boot trend. This year, snakeskin boots are topping our list of most-loved footwear and we’re thrilled (because, let’s face it, not everyone was so enamored with last year’s sock bootie).

But wait, is snakeskin actually versatile? Uh, yeah, because you can find this exotic print in dark grays, unexpected brights and miniature scales mixed with oversize details—and that’s all before we get into the wide array of actual boot styles. To help you find your fit, we rounded up 16 of the best snakeskin boots the internet has to offer. Happy shopping!

1. BP. Maisie Bootie

This classic silhouette goes with everything in your closet, from cocktail dresses to raw-hem jeans, and just because it’s done up in a trendy snake print doesn’t make it any less versatile.

Buy it ($80; $48)


2. Steven Gail Booties

Think outside the box and try snakeskin that isn’t gray, brown or beige for a look that’s a bit more unique and tailored to your tastes. This pair actually has hints of the 2020 Pantone color of the year, so you can pretty much chalk them up to a version of self-care.

Buy it ($151)


3. Charles by Charles David Virgil Bootie

The light off-white hue of these booties feels incredibly luxe, and that brown stripe down the front works wonders for narrowing your feet and lengthening the line of your leg.

Buy it ($70)


4. Tabitha Simmons Porter Boots

Halfway between a combat boot and a more ladylike court style, these lace-up booties will work just as well with black distressed jeans as they will with a midi-length tent dress.

Buy it ($895; $627)


5. Sam Edelman Lindsey Boots

Yellow snakeskin is not for the faint of heart, especially in the form of boots that go all the way up to your knees. But we love how these look with an equally colorful dress. The key is to make sure the dress’s hem goes just past the top of these stunners (that way you can skip wearing tights!).

Buy it ($276; $138)


6. Topshop Idol Honour Leather Western Boots

We love the mix of an oversize exotic print at the back and subtler scales at the front, making these the most polished cowboy boots we’ve ever seen.

Buy it ($170)


7. Dolce Vita Sonni Pointy-Toe Bootie

If you’re not quite ready to jump into the world of bold, attention-grabbing patterns, look for a muted color palette in a subtler print and an easy, walkable heel.

Buy it ($142)


8. Coconuts Rebel Western Chelsea Boot

Another way to ease yourself into the trend is with a pair of boots that features just a hint of print that fades into classic black.

Buy it ($70)


9. By Far Sofia Booties

A slightly square toe gives these sock boots a ’90s vibe without feeling too much like a vintage find.

Buy it ($562)


10. Cole Haan Perfect Pairs Glenda Knee-High Boot

Snakeskin might be having a major moment, but in reality, it’s just as timeless as leopard spots or Breton stripes. That means these gorgeous knee-highs will serve you even after we’ve moved on to the next trend.

Buy it ($300; $200)


11. Blondo Esme Waterproof Bootie

Weatherproof shoes that don’t look like rubber wellies or fleece-lined snow boots are always a big win. The fact that these come in fun, brightly colored scales will make even the most intense slush feel bearable.

Buy it ($150)


12. Topshop Magic Leather Snake Buckle Western Boots

Embrace your inner rock star with these tough, buckle-laden booties with peekaboo detailing at the ankles. Just make sure you’re wearing a pair of funky socks (that actually match).

Buy it ($160; $128)


13. Steve Madden Guided Combat Boot

Swap your basic black Dr. Martens for this light-colored pair that’s just as easy to wear. Our tip? Just treat this pattern as you would any other neutral hue.

Buy it ($102; $62)


14. Marc Fisher Ltd. Yale Chelsea Boot

Give your well-worn black flats a break and slip into these moody gray and black Chelsea boots instead. We promise your feet will be just as comfortable (and likely much warmer).

Buy it ($199)


15. Loeffler Randall Kali Western Heeled Booties

Yes, the heel is 3¼ inches high, but the fact that it is a chunky stack coupled with a supportive boot shaft means it’s much easier to wear these beauties from your morning commute to happy hour…and still be able to walk home.

Buy it ($450)


16. Louise et Cie Waldron Knee-High Boot

Louise et Cie’s variation on the trend is more about the scaly texture than the print, but that doesn’t make these any less lust-worthy.

Buy it ($229)
