As the autumn-winter season approaches and the weather becomes harsher, a sturdy winter boot is the perfect footwear style that combines both style and functionality while protecting you from rain, snow and cold weather.
Winter boots come in various styles, designs and shapes, from the iconic Chelsea and desert boots to simple ankle boots. This season, winter boots have been upgraded with chunky soles, taking inspiration from hiking boots. The understated soles are now replaced with exaggerated ones, giving traditional footwear a rugged edge.
When putting together a winter outfit, I prefer to highlight my boots. One easy way to do this is by tucking or rolling up your trousers to showcase your footwear. Another option is to wear slightly cropped trousers so that the top of the hem exposes a good portion of the shoe. For trousers, you can style your boots with cargo pants. Cropped pants would work even better, and you can match the colors to create a monochromatic fall look. For casual off-duty days, switch to tailored trousers or your trusty denim.
Sometimes all it takes is the right pair of boots to elevate your winter wardrobe. We’ve got you covered with a carefully curated list of the best men’s chunky sole boots.
