Best Chukka Boots for Women

Known for its simple silhouette, the chukka boot is a stylish shoe that’s comfortable and sturdy. The chukka, which is defined by its two- to three-eyelet lace-up front and two-piece fabric upper, traces its history to British soldiers, who wore them in World War II. Today, the boot is well-loved for its ability to be an elevated but practical shoe. Shop our top picks below — all of which are wallet-friendly.
