Cole Haan Air Colton Winter Chukka in in Black Iris, $228

Recently the chukka boot has emerged as a staple in men's shoe options. The history of the minimal ankle boot stems from the traditional game of polo. During World War II, the chukka boot was fitted with a crepe sole and renamed the desert boot.

It's easy to find these boots in the usual brown suede or leather, but if you want to make more of statement this fall, try a patterned or mixed-material option. We've done the footwork for you by rounding up eight styles to help you update your boot style without falling flat.
