The Best Black Combat Boots to Edge Up Any Outfit (2023)



Black Combat Boots

Puffy winter coat. Hats and gloves. Black combat boots. 

To me, those are the winter wardrobe staples. That’s it! 

I can’t overstate how essential a good pair of black combat boots is during the dog days of winter. 

Take durability. Designed to withstand winter’s worst storms, black combat boots are up to the task. Plus, the black color hides scratches and scuffs better than other colors will! 

How about fashion?

Well, black combat boots go with literally anything. Yes, they may not be the most exciting color, but hey, it’s winter – not much to get excited about in the first place, to be fair! 

So what are you waiting for?

Women’s Black Combat Boots


Best Classic Black Combat Boots: Dr. Martens


Let’s start with the most classic black combat boots of them all, the Dr. Martens

Sure, you won’t be the only one on the street wearing these, but there’s a good reason for that. 

The breathable textile lining provides comfort and added durability, while the premium leather upper, classic yellow stitching, and trademark scripted heel loop will offer a timeless look for many winters to come!

Best Cheap Black Combat Boots: Walmart


Looking stylish doesn’t have to break the bank.

These combat boots are super cute and affordable. They have a flexible lug outsole and laces all the way up the front – but they also have a side zip so they’re easy to get on and off.

And best of all, the insole is cushioned with memory foam so they’re quite comfortable to walk on all day!

Just because we’re dealing with the dirt and grime of winter doesn’t mean we can’t go luxury with our black combat boots!

No pair proves that better than this one from Aquatalia

The smooth leather, chunky outsole, elongated tongue, and padded leather insole provide all the high fashion – and comfort – you could ever want or need!

Best Insulated Black Combat Boots: Skechers


They might not be the most traditional of black combat boots, but what the Skechers boots lack in tradition, they more than make up for with comfort and warmth. 

It starts with the air cooled memory foam cushioned insole and chenille fabric, both of which add incredible comfort and warmth, respectively. 

Finished off with a plush faux-fur collar and 3M Scotchgard waterproofing, the Skechers boots will keep your little toes warm and dry all winter long!

Best Two-Toned Black Combat Boots: Red Wing Heritage


It may not be much, but I just can’t get enough of the subtle two-tone coloring provided by the laces and outsole stitching on these Red Wing black combat boots. 

For me, it’s a fairly unique look without trying to reinvent the wheel or take away from what makes black combat boots a classic. 

The Red Wing boots don’t just have a pretty face either, as the Goodyear leather welt construction and molded foot bed offer long-lasting durability and comfort!

Best Heeled Black Combat Boots: Steve Madden


Okay, let’s get one thing clear right away. 

These Steve Madden boots are NOT meant to be worn in a) actual combat or b) even the worst of bad weather storms. 

They do, however, make a stunning fashion statement. 

With a sneaky tall 3.5″ block heel, comfortable textile lining, and premium leather textured upper, the Steve Madden boots are the perfect option to put a spin on a winter wardrobe classic!

Best Buckled Black Combat Boots: AllSaints


AllSaints is known for its all-black attire, so it’s only fitting that the Brigade makes the cut of best women’s black combat boots. 

This boot really has it all. Shiny leather upper, two buckle ankle strap, side-zip closure, chunky outsole, and a padded leather insole. 

If you love the AllSaints boot as much as I do, keep in mind that these boots run large, and the brand recommends sizing down a full size from your traditional size!
