IMG_7431There are many different types of shoes you can wear this fall, but no guy’s closet is complete without a pair of desert boots.

Desert boots – or chukkas – first gained popularity when footwear brand Clarks unveiled the style at the Chicago Footwear Fair in 1949, and they have been a wardrobe staple ever since.

A cross between dress shoes and boots, chukkas look nice, offer a sturdy, comfortable fit, and can be worn just about anywhere, and with just about anything. 

Have a look at 11 of the best chukkas you can buy this fall. With multiple colors available for each pair and a variety of price points, there’s something here for everyone.
