Boot weather is almost upon us, and while the closet staple might seem like your humble, everyday item, any footwear enthusiast will know, each season there's always a plethora of new and unique styles to choose from.
Whether you're in the market for a flat, commute shoe or a sleek heel, autumn 2020 has presented us with a slew of boots for every occasion. With the A/W2020 runways as a guiding light, we've seen quite a few key trends emerge for this season, including over-the-knee boots which were spotted at Bottega Veneta and Victoria Beckham, as well as fashion wellies which were seen at Prada and Chloe.
Aside from those, chunky track sole boots are back for another season, and combat boots have also retained their popularity for 2020. Cowboy boots have once again crept onto the shelves, with our Shopping Editor, Joy Montgomery having already purchased a vintage pair. Keep scrolling to see the boot trends we are loving for autumn.
Over The Knee Boots
From Proenza Schouler to Victoria Beckham, this is 2020's answer to the knee-high boot, lengthened this season to reach higher-heights. The over-the-knee boot can be paired perfectly against mini dresses and skirts, but will also work well with mid-calf lengths, too.

It seems we see the return of the combat boot each autumn, though their update for 2020 often includes a chunkier, almost platform like track sole. If you prefer to stick to tradition, there are still plenty of lace-up options around without the added height.
