This Will Be the Most Popular Boot Trend for Fall, Hands Down

We always have our eye on the biggest boot trends for fall and this season, one style is winning out: chunky boots. While they have been a favorite in past seasons, they were spotted all over the F/W 20 runways and the new arrivals sections at all of our favorite retailers are heavily stocked with the trend. They’re already a favorite among the fashion set but we’re predicting they’ll be even more popular this fall.

Not only is the boot style fashion-forward, but it’s also comfortable. Finished with platforms or thick lug soles, these shoes put a cool spin on flat boots. With styles ranging from high-leg Chelsea boots to Wellingtons to equestrian styles, there is sure to be a silhouette that you’ll want to add to your shopping cart. Ahead, see how chunky boots were styled on the F/W 20 runways and get inspiration for how to wear them from the fashion set.
