Seeing purple everywhere for fall has somehow invaded our brain and now we can't stop thinking about purple suede boots.

Even though they are completely impractical for the San Francisco winter rains we are sure to experience, we're so tempted to get a pair to wear on the rare clear day. They are dressy yet can go casual, and make a very definite fashion statement: Fear Not Color On Your Feet!

Up to the knee or gracing our ankles, sky high or in a more moderate medium heel, round, pointy or open-toed, you can find the purple suede boot that is perfect for you.

In the gallery, our top five choices. Now we just have to figure out which ones we can afford. As good as the Jimmy Choos look, at $1,395 it would be the boots or food -- we just can't afford both!
