The best chunky shoes of the season

September 2020

Chunky shoes have been trendy for a few seasons already, inspired by the ’70s and remastered by Gucci a while ago. But forget about the massive platform that we used to hate (or love). This season, the chunky shoes are the new classic. Modern and trendy, they can level up any look, even the most sophisticated ones.

Loafers, Oxfords, and other classics.

A simple loafer is already a great classic shoe (the Jordaan from Gucci for example). Great in-between season when it’s not cold enough for boots. This season, going trendy means going chunky! With pants, dresses, skirts (basically everything), you won’t lose any comfort while stepping up your fashion game. Wear them alone or with socks – matching the colors of the outfit of course.

No winter without boots.

We all remember the super chunky high heeled boots from Louis Vuitton last year. Well, this year is still for statement boots but in a more toned-down and unexpected style. Prada, Bottega Veneta, Versace, and Valentino surprised us with some chunky welly boots (yes, rain boots) on their FW runways. For the less adventurous of us, the military-style “all-terrain” boots are the best alternative.

Combine a feminine outfit with chunky boots – trendy look guaranteed! A winter without boots is not a real winter, so you might as well get ready and go shopping. Below are some of my favorites.

The trendiest sneakers.

Think about big sneakers, and immediately Balenciaga pops up – one of the first brands to start the trend of super large sneakers. Extremely trendy (and heavy), we saw them on pretty much everyone all year round, since their launch in 2018. But I’ve got good news for you: many of the more affordable brands now have loads of this type of sneakers to choose from! The bigger and bolder, the better!
