3 Chic, Stacked-Heel Ankle Boots for Women

They’re warmer than flats and pumps and just as stylish.

Both fashionable and practical, stack-heeled ankle boots are a staple in many wardrobes. Their characteristic thick heel lends stability, and the shaft height is ideal for protecting feet from the elements while pairing well with all types of bottoms. Here are three pairs that’ll knock your socks off (and your old boots too).

Kenneth Cole Reaction Women’s Salt Chelsea Pull On Flat Bootie

The color contrast is so eye-catching. Amazon


These easy-to-walk-in boots boost height by 1.57 inches and keep ankles fully covered. Wear yours with jeans for the appearance of longer legs.

Sam Edelman Women’s Walden Ankle Boot

Wearing a solid-colored top and midi skirt is the perfect way to flaunt these statement makers. Amazon


For parties and special occasions, try this patterned pick. The pointed toe, 2.25-inch heel and slim silhouette give it a formal vibe, making it well-suited to match dressier attire.

Clark Women’s Verona Trish Ankle Boot

The cleating underneath prevents slipping. Amazon


These rugged beauties toughen up any outfit, but go easy on your arches. The 2 ¾-inch heel helps with balance and feels shorter because of the platform. Meanwhile, cushioning provides additional comfort.
