We're just about ready to put away our faithful summer flip flops and strappy sandals in favour of new season boots. But when it comes to finding the best walking shoes for women, some options can be a little on the, well, ugly side. Enter the stomper boot.
With so many to choose from – including the classic ankle to the chic knee high – it can be prove quite the task deciding which style to choose. There are also the autumn/winter 2020 trends to consider. One particular style which is going to be popular for yet another year (they were key for 2019, thanks to Prada) is the stomper boot. This practical walking type boot may have been previously kept for hiking, but now they're making their way into everyday wardrobes, too.
So, how do you style the stomper boot with your autumn outfits?
One of the most stylish women on Instagram Renia Jaz, shows how women in their 50s can style some of the latest trends. Showing how lace-up boots can we worn with slim-fit trousers and a tie detail blazer – you can even tuck the trouser hems in slightly to show the boots off even more.
Chunky boots are also a great way to toughen up your bright summer midi dresses to make them work across seasons.

We can always rely on Mango to tick off all the latest trends. These chunky tread boots will see you through the cooler seasons in serious style. Tip: try teaming them with earthy hues for a top-to-toe tonal look that'll never fail.
If you prefer to not have to lace-up in the morning then this buckle style with handy side zip (don't worry, you don't have to undo all of those buckles) are the perfect pair. This rich burgundy hue is classic enough to go with brights, prints and neutrals.
Russell and Bromley
If you want to stick to fail-safe black then this quilted pair is a twist on a classic. Wear with everything from trousers and a high neck knit to a shirt dress.
Zara is always responsible for 'it' buys season after season – we all remember that black and white spotted dress everyone had, right? Well, now it's all about the boots. Chelsea style stomping boots were key last season with Bottega Veneta's designer style reigning supreme – this high street pair will look just as good, trust us.
If you're not ready to let go of light summer hues then this pair of off-white boots are a winner. Style with anything from a slip skirt and jumper to a trouser suit and T-shirt combo. The chunky sole will mean you can keep these looking fresher for longer.
Chunky walking boots are an all rounder when it comes to boot styles this season – we hope you've found a pair to suit your style, and budget.
