A couple months ago, TikTok user @nyctrends captured people wearing platform boots all over the streets of New York City. The video now has 3.8 million views and 1.1 million likes, so it's safe to say that chunky boots are a TikTok-approved trend.

Tons of celebrities have also been spotted out and about this winter wearing platform boots. Punk queen Kourtney Kardashian wore a pair of Prada combat boots in Disneyland last month, while her bestie Addison Rae wore Dr. Martens platform boots in New York City. And just last week, Jennifer Lopez wore a pair of heeled platform lace-up boots in Los Angeles.

If you want to try out the style for yourself, we've got you covered with the five best platform boot options on Amazon, all for less than $80:

Dream Pairs Mid-Calf Lug-Sole Combat Boot

DREAM PAIRS Women’s Combat Boots Lace up Mid Calf Boots

If you're into the combat boot trend, but you don't want to spend a ton of money on a pair, the $44 Dream Pairs Mid-Calf Lug-Sole Combat Boots are the ones for you. They come in four shades of faux leather, each with laces up the front to adjust the tightness around your ankles and legs, a side zipper for easy on-and-off, and a lug sole. According to one shopper, they "look amazing on, and are actually very comfortable."

Another option from Dream Pairs, the Platform Lug-Sole Chelsea Boot, is made from smooth faux leather with elastic panels on the sides and slip-resistant rubber lug soles. They hit at the mid-calf, so you can either wear them over a pair of tight-fitting pants to show off the entire boot or layer them under a pair of loose bottoms to highlight the platform soles.

"These boots look and feel like a designer [pair]," one reviewer wrote. "They are so comfortable and super sleek."

For a sportier look, consider the Circus by Sam Edelman Davina Mid-Calf Boots that are going for 39 percent off. They're made from faux leather with ribbed fabric around the ankles, exposed seams, and a 2.25-inch platform lug sole. You can choose from white faux patent leather and black faux matte leather.

"Super light sole and they're surprisingly comfortable," a reviewer wrote, adding, "The knit top is perfect to either tuck under wider jeans or go on top of leggings. I have thin ankles and these don't have that dreaded big gap at the top."

Steve Madden Clarisa Chelsea Boot
