Ready, set … go. I’m talking, of course, about the race to find the best gear for fall to buy for 2022, including some of the best fall boots for men as showcased above. It’s a race we’re running full-speed today, seeing as September is waning quickly and October is just about here. Warmer weather can sometimes stick around into October, especially in NYC, but I’m doing everything I can to break out my favorite fall style essentials, and you should do the same. Whether that’s the Rhodes Footwear Huxley Boots (more on those very soon), a stylish Timex watch, a pair of classic blue jeans or dark blue jeans, you’re going to be mighty pleased with today’s edition of The List. Happy fall, my friends.
