This Ankle Boot Trend Is Going to Be Everywhere in 6 Months

Hold up—before you put away your ankle boots for good as we embark into the season of strappy sandals, mules, and lightweight sneakers, I want to bring your attention to a new ankle boot trend that was so prominent in the F/W 19 collections, I simply couldn't wait the full six months to reveal it. In my recent coverage of the biggest fall 2019 shoe trends, I called out the new boot trend to know—"storm stompers"—and today, I'm going to give you a closer look.

As an editor, some of the heaviest-hitting trends are the ones I notice without having to go back and analyze show after show and scroll through my thousands of kind-of-blurry iPhone photos of the runway and market appointments. Instead, these trends are the ones I notice right off the bat due to their ingenuity and positioning. This season, one of those trends was heavy rubber-soled ankle boots.
