Take a look at your favorite high-end store’s shoe department right now. Odds are that among the selection you’ll see any number of outrageously absurd styles. Take your pick: Raf Simons Ozweegos, Maison Margiela Futures or Mixed Media Trainers, Balenciaga Triple-S, and Acne Studio.
Each of them, profoundly ugly in their own right. From the wealth of panels to the overinflated midsoles, fashion designers today are finding new ways to distort what we think of as footwear—and that means figuring out what to wear with them too.
Chunky shoes will add a bold finish to an outfit no matter what they’re paired with so don’t try to fight it. Instead, consider whether you want to create contrast with lightweight fabrics and sweeping hems or play off a sharp shape with tailored pieces. The beauty is that either direction works.
Fashion girls demonstrate the myriad of ways chunky sneakers can be worked into your current wardrobe. Here are some of Thesaleshoppers looks to remember.
If you still need some convincing in order to give this trend a try, allow us to present some pairs that just might align with your own personal style preferences. We've found a pair of simple Vans but with a platform sole, or the Chunky Runner Style Trainers by MSGM which has become increasingly popular among the stylish Europian girls. There's even the Balenciaga chunky sneaker available for pre-order, as well as Acne's new Sofiane Runner that's been flooding the feeds of street wear influencers on Instagram.
